With Tanking Poll Numbers, How Long Can Anti-Gun Biden Hang On?

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- His attempt to appoint a gun control lobbyist to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives embarrassingly crashed last summer, his Build Back Boondoggle derailed last week, and his poll numbers sinking like lead in a hot tub. Can Joe Biden hang on or is he already a lame-duck unable to push an agenda that includes gun control as a priority?

Western Journal is reporting a recent Economist-YouGov poll showing “fewer than 3 in 10 Americans under 30 approve of the president’s job after a year in office,

Covering the same survey, the Washington Examiner notes, “Younger people have become disenchanted with President Joe Biden, the septuagenarian rapidly losing support with the demographic that was wary of him during the 2020 Democratic primary.”

For three consecutive days (Dec. 21-22-23), the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll showed Biden losing one point a day in the Presidential Approval Index, from minus 27 to minus 29. The disparity between likely voters who strongly approve of Biden’s job performance and those who strongly disapprove have been hovering at more than 2-to-1, with more than twice the percentage of disapproval.

Joe Biden has always been an anti-gunner, despite his claims otherwise. He’s said he owns a shotgun, but to any Second Amendment activist that’s the equivalent of having a flyrod in the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert.

When he candidly acknowledged during a CNN Townhall broadcast in July that he would not only like to ban modern sporting rifles, but also 9mm pistols—possibly the two most popular firearms in America today—the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms pounced with a video broadcast on about 20 cable networks.

That, coupled with the failed attempt to place David Chipman, a senior advisor to a gun control group, in charge of the BATF, only further used up much of Biden’s political capital. Biden was embarrassed and disappointed, but putting things in perspective, several Democrats were just as wary as their Republican colleagues, especially as gun owners flooded Capitol Hill with calls, emails and letters. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin let more wind out of Biden’s sail by announcing his intended “no” vote on the president’s mammoth spending bill which would have hit U.S. gun owners as hard in the pocket book as any other citizen. They have been paying higher prices at the pump and at the grocery store, same as everyone else, and they notice more of their income going for basic necessities, with less money available for recreational pursuits such as hunting or target shooting.

Whether Biden or his fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill realize it or not, gun owners are also taxpayers and voters. They demonstrated as much in Virginia on Election Day by turning the governorship over to Republican Glenn Youngkin, and flipping the legislature back to GOP control. Now it is time for Republicans to show their gratitude by repealing every gun control measure adopted in 2020 by the Democrats they just replaced.

Several days ago, Biden used the ninth anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy to call for more gun control. However, according to CNN, the Delaware Democrat had to acknowledge his party’s efforts to pass tougher gun laws—which critics say would only penalize law-abiding citizens and would not have prevented that elementary school shooting—have failed.

“We came close to legislation” said Biden, in a remark that might describe his presidency thus far, “but we came up short.”

A PBS News Hour/NPR/Marist poll released in mid-December revealed “more than half – 55 percent – of Americans disapprove of Biden’s performance, including 44 percent who strongly disapprove.” That essentially squares with the Rasmussen daily poll, and could make Biden the most unpopular president in modern times.

The Western Journal reported in early December on a Harvard Youth Poll showing “the president’s approval among 18- to 29-year-olds was at 46 percent, a 13 percent drop from March.”

So, the question remains: How long can Joe Biden hang on? The 2022 mid-terms are already shaping up to be disastrous for Democrats. Some pundits are speculating that dozens of seats could change hands in the U.S. House, and not just because more than 20 Democrats have announced they are retiring at the end of their current terms. If the House swings back to the GOP with a strong majority, watch for Nancy Pelosi to suddenly retire. If Republicans also take back the Senate, Biden’s agenda will be dead.

As NBC News noted, “And except for a bipartisan infrastructure law Biden signed last month, there is little hope for the rest of his legislative priorities, such as voting rights, gun control and a policing overhaul. Those proposals are subject to the 60-vote filibuster.”

Now you know why Democrats are so anxious to get rid of the filibuster. It stands in the way of their effort to push through a gun control agenda that includes licensing and registration of semi-auto rifles, and regulating them the same as full-auto firearms.

However, gun owners should not be so eager to see Joe go. Waiting in the wings to become the first female president is Kamala Harris, whose outbursts of laughter are, according to speculation, carefully choreographed to distract attention from the fact she’s not well-prepared to answer questions. Harris is as vehemently anti-gun as Biden, and perhaps more so.

People still remember her vow, back in 2019, that if she were to be elected president, she would give Congress 100 days “to get their act together and have the courage to pass these gun safety laws, and if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action, and specifically what I will do is put in place a requirement that for anyone who sells more than five guns a year, they are required to do background checks when the sell those guns. I will require that for any gun dealer that breaks the law, the ATF take their license…”

As a presidential candidate, Harris didn’t make it far in the Democratic primary race. And now, as acknowledged by the Los Angeles Daily News, “Democrats are stuck” with her.

And so would be the country be, should Joe Biden step aside.

This leaves gun owners, especially Second Amendment activists, with one clear option. Work on flipping Congress next November and stopping Biden’s gun control agenda cold. All it takes is to vote.

Biden’s handlers will squeeze the last drop of “usefulness” out of him, and then toss him like a used Kleenex.


Biden is illegitimate and has no lawful authority. Nor does anything he signs.


To put it more simply (and I do not use this term lightly), Joe Biden is a Traitor, plain and simple. Any president who takes the oath (part of which states; “I promise to protect the Constitution from ALL threats, foreign and domestic, so help me God.”) and then moves forward with an agenda that will completely dismantle the Constitution, starting with the 1st, 2nd, & 4th ammendments, should be impeached, tried and convicted as a Traitor. And the punishment is of course, death, with NO appeal.

Honestly, the alternative(s) are substantially worse…

I think that Kamala’s handlers would be no better than the current group of Biden handlers, but it is still handlers that would be in charge.


Yep! It’s a s**t sandwich. Don’t matter if it’s on wheat bread or white.

I always thought that Jimmy Carter was the worst president since the 50’s but Joe Biden has replaced him on my list as the worst.

Wild Bill

Well, that is technically correct, but I think that Jimmy Carter has been replaced as worst president by a committee of socialists handlers consisting of Susan Rice, Bernie Sanders, Soros, AOC and others faceless king makers.


Lame duck is a nice way of saying ilegitiment braindead idiot . Hopefully 2022 will really lame the ilegitiment idiot even more and put him back in his basement hiding from a 1963 movie (Omicron) Let’s go Brandon #FJB

Slo Joe is always a day late and a dollar short. What a complete and utter moronic imbecile!


Rules for thee, not for me. Kamela and old Joe are defended by a large force of law enforcement.

Recent carjacking of an IL Senator said it was broken up by her husband who was carrying concealed…same state that has very restrictive firearms rules.

I think if our Congressmen and senior govt officials like Secretaries of various depts had to call 911 instead of having an armed security force par excellence, then they would understand what the rest of us do…you’re responsible for your own security and there are bad folks out there.


You’ve heard her interview this past Sunday when she declared that the greatest threat to the US was ‘democracy’, ie: allowing states to implement their voting requirements.

I’m not sure that is what Kommiela meant but….she is closer to being right than wrong. We are a Republic sliding towards totalitarianism. Leftist states are tightening their control, redistricting to assure they remain in control. Kommieforniastan comes to mind.

Restrictive gun laws have been passed, in the United States, for over a hundred years now. Not even one has ever done what it was supposedly passed for and that was gun crime control. Those who have an IQ over single digits know exactly why that is a fact. Those restrictive gun laws only take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens not the criminal. All restrictive gun laws do is make the vulnerable even more vulnerable including law enforcement. These socialist marxist democrats know restrictive gun laws do not work to curtail gun crimes. However that is not their goal. Gun confiscation from law… Read more »


Exactly who will enforce any such nonsense ? Guess they don’t value their or their families lives much. Do they really think everyone will just go along ? lol

Boris Badenov

Who will enforce any such nonsense? Just look at what happened on Jan. 6, 2021, the so called LEOS that murdered one and beat others. Yet THEY have to be brought to any form of justice. I fear there are far too many who would have zero qualms about being jack booted anti-American thugs.

Joe don’t care about no stinking polls! He knew going in he was a one term office holder with the goal of transforming America to Socialism. He’s signed more executive orders and ignored more court orders including the Supreme Court then any other president in history. Joe and his supporters know they only have 4 years to transform, then the DNC will run a white horse savior with all kinds of promises to bail out America that will amount to nothing. That’s the Democratic Socialist parties playbook in a nutshell. Bad guy – good women, not Kamala as she’s damaged… Read more »

I think the Let’s go Brandon meme is now more aimed at the media covering for Biden, than for Joe himself.


Loved the guy who hit Xiden with the LGB line at the end of a video chat with Xiden and FLOTUS.. Her expression indicated she recognized the line and did not appreciate it. Senile Joey was lost and didn’t catch the jab.

‘So, the question remains: How long can Joe Biden <hang> on?’ Along with his puppet masters, I’m sure the Vegas odds would be interesting.

WE know darn will that the quisling GOP won’t do a darn thing to reverse, in any meaningful manner, any laws further infringing upon our RKBA put into place by the Dims.


These clowns will never stop attacking the 2A never they are seriously mentally disturbed, They can throw up their road blocks and we will keep fighting them until we finally throw 5hem out of office by force, which I believe should have happened long ago


I’m hearing Trump is gonna run as a Democrat or at least an Independent in 2024. He basically told Candace Owens that she’s not only dumb but she’s “following the wrong rabbit down the hole”. Floored me to hear but he always said he can do whatever he wants.

Maybe he’ll put to bed this left, right political division here in this country!


Say, aren’t you the genius who put LaPierre & Co in charge in 1997?
