What “worst figures” Davydov has in mind, he did not explain. The president’s approval rating did fall a lot this fall; the reason here is both the rise in inflation associated with the pandemic and the failed withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. According to the aggregator of public opinion polls Fivethirtyeight.com, November 24 Biden’s job as president approved 42.9% of Americans did not approve of 51.8. But that doesn’t make Biden the most unpopular post-war president. Same site showsthat at the end of November in the first year of his presidency, Trump’s approval rating was 38.4%, and disapproval – 55.5%. If we talk about the lowest level of approval in the entire career of the president, then while the result of Biden looks far from the worst: Harry Truman in 1951 and 1952 went down up to 22%, for Richard Nixon in 1974 – up to 24% (however, this was just before his resignation under the threat of impeachment), for George W. Bush in 2008 – up to 25%. In fact, of all the presidents since World War II, only John F. Kennedy has never had an approval rating lower than Biden’s.
But this, according to Davydov, is not the biggest problem in America today. The country is experiencing a rampant crime:
– A wave of raids covered California. During the day, without hiding from anyone, the robbers rush into the shops in droves. There are dozens of cars around the department store, where they quickly throw off the loot and leave. Raiders are interested in everything from luxury brands to pills. Robbers, like locusts, rob the pharmacy in a couple of minutes. They know that there is no threat of prison for this. In liberal California, liberal laws are guarded by progressive prosecutors. <…>
Coincidentally, the largest increase in crime is observed in cities that are ruled by Democrats. So much blood has not been shed on the streets of Chicago for a quarter of a century – 700 murders in less than a year. The situation is no better in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia.
About the fake about the extraordinary growth of shoplifting in California due to the fact that petty theft (up to $ 950) was allegedly decriminalized, The Insider already wrote: Then a similar story was made by Vesti’s competitors from the Vremya program on Channel One. In fact, there was no decriminalization and for petty shoplifting in California you can go to jail for six months, and in case of a relapse – for a much longer period.
Davydov is surprised at the words of San Francisco District Attorney Cesa Budin, who stated:
– There are people who are ready for petty theft. And this will happen, and this is, of course, a crime. But if we put such a person in prison, it will cost the state a lot of money. And someone else may be subject to violence in prison, where you can contract various diseases.
According to the Vesti correspondent, it is precisely because of this softness of the authorities that thieves, fearing no one, now and then openly clean out shops. But the statistics with the Russian correspondent do not agree: shoplifting in San Francisco becomes Less and less.
