"If this poll is valid then most Americans don't seem to have the slightest idea about how well or badly their government is run." WaPo comment
“What are they, certified imbeciles, or maybe idiots?” Janice huffed on seeing the news this a.m. of a Washington Post-ABC News poll. The poll found that 62 percent of Americans think Biden has accomplished “not very much” or “little or nothing” during his presidency, while 36 percent say he has accomplished “a great deal” or “a good amount.” Janice agreed that at least the latter groups – just over a third polled- showed a “workable intelligence and higher IQ” than the first set.
To refresh readers' memories, Janice has held a jaundiced view of my countrymen's intelligence since we moved to the U.S. (from Barbados) in 1992. From the foolish consumer obsessions to social media addictions (Tik Tok), to talk radio and FOX News, not to mention the political conspiracy theories such as 'Pizzagate' e.g.
Crackpot "Pizzagate" Tale Promoted By Michael G. Flynn Almost Led To D.C. Tragedy
And then the misguided 2016 election of the hare -brained demagogue Trump followed by the belief Biden really lost in 2020, she has not been enamored of Americans' IQ demonstrations. This has not been helped now by the poll finding "A majority of Americans do not believe Biden has accomplished much of anything."
Or as Janice put it: Where have these twits been the past two years? Do they ever read or is watching dancing monkeys on Tik Tok all they do?” Good questions! Is my better half being hyperbolic? I don’t believe so.

Here's the clincher for Janice on the low IQ aspect: On many of Biden’s signature initiatives — from improving the country’s infrastructure to making electric vehicles more affordable to creating jobs — majorities of Americans say they do not believe he has made progress, the poll finds.
“In other words, they are all moron FOX News watchers and brainless conspiracy toads!”, according to her. In other words, they are paying more attention to the blather and propaganda on FOX and its related conservo shit shows than to sober reporting of actual Biden accomplishments, such as at MSNBC. She blames much of this on the recurring “Woke” bunkum which she insists too many are too dense to parse and see through. I agree and have skewered this crap and its derogative, degenerate origins from the start e.g.

The sad fact is that since the pandemic erupted three years ago too many American brains have been flushed into a rabbit hole of unreality. This has been reflected in what the late Steve Allen used to call 'Dumbth' (in his eponymous book) and meant an absence of rationality, critical thinking, common sense and possession of basic facts. In the case of the ABC-WaPo poll basic facts of how our system of government works and what exactly defines governance success. It is clear as numerous sensible observers (including several WaPo commenters) have pointed out, that these Americans dinging Biden in the poll have no clue. As Janice joked, "They probably can't even name the three branches of government."
Much of this can be traced to too much distraction, excessive social media use and immersion in half-assed conspiracy bunkum via FOX News troglodytes such as Tucker Carlson. It is a sad commentary that Biden will now have to factor a majority of the nation into account as distracted (or conspiracy-deluded) ignorant morons when he announces his achievements in the SOTU tomorrow night. Or to quote Janice: "What did you expect?"
