If you are in favor of COVID vaccines, you might give him a high grade for the fairly successful rollout. If you are not in favor of COVID vaccines, you might grade him low due to the vaccine mandates and perceived government overreach.

How about his grade on other issues? Minimum wage, the economy, product shortages, social issues such as police reform, equity/equality/BLM, etc. Any other big topics that should be graded?

I realize that a lot of these issues are impacted by Congress as well but since Biden is the president, he will get the grade.

So far, I would give Biden a D:

The COVID vaccine rollout has gone much smoother than I suspected it would but there is so much misinformation that it is impossible for the average guy to decipher right from wrong. And you can forget about being provided any useful information from the media.


I may be wrong but I don't think much good is going to come from increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour. I think that is just going to make the prices of everything go up since employers will need to pay employees more and companies will use this is an excuse to simply raise prices because they can. While it may make lower-end earners happy, I suspect that a lot of people currently making over $15 per hour are going to be mad if their salaries are not adjusted as well.


I think that the economy is a mess that nobody wants to address. Eventually, the relief checks / child credit checks have to stop and unemployment benefits have to return to pre-pandemic levels. This isn't sustainable.


Product shortages are being caused by the minimum wage and the relief payment / unemployment check issues above. Why work if the government is paying you more to sit at home?

The "defund the police" movement seems to be an utter failure here in Maryland - specifically Baltimore. Gun violence is way up this year and criminals are pretty blatant in the crimes that they are committing. People are just walking up to strangers, cold cocking them in broad daylight, stealing their phones/wallets, and walking away. Cops have also been pretty much neutered as they have stood by and watched cities burn during riots/protests.

Equity/equality seem to be the latest buzzwords. I must get at least 2 e-mails per day from my employer that "highlight the corporation's culture of equity, inclusion, etc.". Can't watch a sports event without commentators talking about justice, equality, etc.  Has this happened under any other recent presidency?

B- on the fact we don't hear about him every ten minutes like we did with the last guy.

No grade on the rest of it.

Not forceful enough with his own party. Genuflected to Manchin and Synema, making it impossible to enact his signature legislation. He needs to be more LBJ and less Droopy Dog. He also focused too much on working with Republicans when they never wanted to work with him in the first place.

On being not Trump, I give him an A+.

The rest is still too early to tell.

D. Maybe an F.



Economically the country is spiraling out of control, Afghanistan was an embarrassment.

I’d give him a lower grade but concur with that sentiment. The “infrastructure” bill that he’s pushing that has nothing to do with infrastructure is a complete fold to the radical left and hopefully will never get passed. If it doesn’t, that’s a huge failure out of the gate for someone who’s overreaching. 

The withdrawal from Afghanistan was a complete and utter disaster. No one is more happy than me that we’re out and it was obvious the Taliban would take over immediately again whether we were there 1 year, 10 years, or 100 years, but get out the people you need to get out first. It’s not like hey didn’t have time. If Trump pulled out half as badly as that, it’s all we’d ever hear about on the news, but he received tepid criticism from the liberal media and hypocritical criticism from the conservative media that you can’t take seriously. The real issues with the botch were barely addressed. 

He’s a C- at most for me, but the fact that I don’t have to hear as much from him as Trump, whether it’s because he’s senile or not as crazy or a combination of both, is a plus for me.  Policy-wise, I don’t know how different he really is, right down to the horrific images at the border. He’s a politician, so by definition he’s a worthless piece of shit.

Disappointed in a lot of it, but Biden gets a C since I don't hear about him several times a day.

Gas prices, food prices WAY up. Distribution issues with the ports. Stock market is down. Pullout in Afghanistan was a disaster and in general don’t feel safer now as other China, Russia and the terrorists see this guy as a senile fuck with no coordinated team underneath him. Too many other issues spinning out of control in this country, The VP has disappeared.

Came here to say pretty much this. Gas and food prices way up with no sign of a slowdown and Afghanistan was a disaster. D-

How is the S&P 500 gaining 600 points year to date stock prices going down?

I'm more concerned about the future than anything else. I just see the cost of everything going through the roof.
