With a 33% support rating and more than five in ten Americans disliking the job President Biden is doing in office, things aren’t looking good for him.
Biden has started his second year in the White House with one problem after the next. Last week, he declared America’s midterm elections wouldn’t be secure until Democrats got to make their voting bills the law of the land.
On Monday, Biden was heard on a hot mic referring to Fox News correspondent Peter Doocey as a “son of a b*tch” after Doocey questioned him on inflation. Later, the president phoned Doocey to inform him that the insult was “nothing personal.”
While Biden, by his own declaration, believes he’s “outperforming” as president, the rest of the country doesn’t think so.
In fact, things are going so poorly for Biden that Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke has been clear he doesn’t want Biden anywhere near his campaign, as covered by Breitbart News.
O’Rourke on Potential Help from Biden in the Texas Governor’s Race
During a press conference last week, O’Rourke plainly declared that he has no interest in anyone from outside of Texas trying to help him in his campaign to unseat Republican Governor Greg Abbott.
O’Rourke has a history of losing elections. He lost the Texas senatorial election to current Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018; then, two years thereafter, O’Rouke failed to win the Democrat Party’s nomination in the 2020 presidential election.
Beto O'Rourke is one of the biggest jokes in the history of politics and even he has told Joe Biden he doesn't want his help in his Texas gubernatorial race.
Imagine how bad Ice Cream Joe's actual numbers must be.

According to the Texas gubernatorial candidate, nothing and no one outside of the Lone Star State should be involved in his Texas governor’s campaign.
O’Rourke also explicitly opined that no one in Washington D.C. has the capacity to be of assistance to Texans or what O’Rourke described as the “challenges” the state faces.
Currently, the Texas Democrat is behind Governor Abbott in the polls.
A Turbulent Campaign Start
In the closing weeks of 2021, Beto O’Rourke announced his candidacy for Texas governor. However, while the Democrat clearly thinks distancing himself from Biden is the best move, it may not be enough to get him into the Texas governor’s mansion.
Back in November, a Houston rancher at one of O’Rourke’s campaign events went viral. He directly advised the Texas Democrat to “get out” and declared O’Rourke isn’t wanted as governor.

God bless America's ranchers.

Furthermore, the rancher claimed he was speaking on behalf of other ranchers, farmers, and liberty-loving Texans. This, in and of itself, could prove problematic for O’Rourke.
Likewise, with O’Rourke standing behind policies like COVID mandates, gun confiscations, etc., he’s going to alienate a considerable number of Texas voters.
This country has seen growing uprisings against mandates, along with surges in folks buying guns, many of them being first-time gun buyers.
