We already saw his poll numbers , but how is he doing on the jobs front?
I’ll give it to you straight, Biden scored somewhere around a 30 on his test…..that’s right, he got a big fat F.
Economists predicted that roughly 720,000 jobs would be added in August, but all we got was a paltry 235,000……
This wouldn’t be the end of the world if Biden wasn’t already failing in all his subjects as President of The United States.
Take a look at the data:

The big red flag in the August jobs report: Job LOSSES in retail and restaurants — likely b/c of the Delta variant.
Retail: -29,000 jobs
Job gains elsewhere:
Biz: +74,000 jobs

The New York Post had more:
President Biden on Friday pinned the blame for disappointing monthly job-growth figures on the Delta variant of COVID-19 — using the report to urge Congress to pass his proposals for $4.7 trillion in new federal spending.
The US added just 235,000 jobs in August, far short of the 720,000 positions that economists surveyed by Dow Jones expected, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data.
“There’s no question the Delta variant is why today’s job report isn’t stronger. I know people were looking and I was hoping for a higher number,” Biden said at the White House.
Just last month, President Biden said: “The Biden plan is working”
Today, the August Jobs Report missed expectations by nearly half a million jobs…

7 months into Joe Biden’s presidency:
🚨Catastrophe in Afghanistan, Americans stranded, billions of $ of US weapons with Taliban
🚨Disastrous jobs report, missing expectations by half a million
“Jimmy Carter 2.0” is an understatement.

Town Hall added:
With no way to spin the results as anything but a miss for the Biden economy, even The Washington Post called August’s report “lackluster” and “disappointing.”
“This was a big disappointment,” reacted CNN. “In August, Job growth slowed dramatically.”
“235,000 jobs were added back, that is a big miss,” said Chief Business Correspondent Christine Romans. “The consensus was for more than 700,000, even the whisper numbers of a disappointment were 400,000 or 500,000 so this is a disappointment.”
