Biden’s popularity is collapsing in Colorado, and Bennet is nowhere to be found
For Immediate Release
September 14, 2021
DENVER, CO – It is fortuitous for Senator Michael Bennet that President Biden’s visit to Colorado happened to overlap with Senate votes in Washington, D.C.
Bennet claimed in a tweet he was “sorry to miss him.”
Excited to welcome @joebiden to Colorado today! I’m sorry to miss him, but I’m in DC fighting to extend the expanded Child Tax Credit for years to come. As he discusses addressing the climate crisis and renewable energy, I know we're fighting together to move our state forward. https://t.co/nQAq6Lw3Fa

That’s a little bit hard to believe, because new surveys both in Colorado and nationally show Biden’s popularity is totally collapsing.
Red flashing lights everywhere for Biden via today's @QuinnipiacPoll:
42-50 Job Approval
34-59 Foreign Policy
31-65 Afghanistan Withdrawal
29-70 Satisfied with Way Things Going (46% Very Dissatisfied)https://t.co/VvCpR2yNma

This week’s Civiqs survey in particular has to be especially alarming for Bennet.
It shows the President’s job approval underwater by 7 points in Colorado, and 27 points among Unaffiliated voters.
Biden’s rough reviews from voters in Colorado compound problems for Bennet, as his support for Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending spree faces stiff opposition from his own party.
Is it any wonder strategists on the left are already sounding the alarm about the 2022 midterm cycle in Colorado?
If you’re covering Biden’s visit to Colorado today, please consider the following statement from Compass Colorado:
“Fighting for Biden’s $3.5 trillion socialist spending spree in Washington isn’t a great way for Bennet to excuse his absence today,” said Compass Colorado Executive Director Kyle Kohli.
“Coloradans are seeing prices raise across the board, but trillions in reckless federal spending will only make life harder for working people.”
