Explicit chants targeting US President Joe Biden can be heard amongst the crowd during college football games across the country over the past few days.
On Sunday, a video where a “F**k Joe Biden” chant can be heard as seen in a post online. The lilt within the crowd happened during the Texas A&M Aggies game against the Kent State Golden Flashes.
The video was shared by “the-typical-liberal” Instagram account, a meme page managed by conservative Grant Godwin. The account has more than 2.4 million followers – a number good enough to make any post viral.
“F*** Joe Biden!” Chants at the Texas A&M game—Let this be a new trend at all college football games!” Godwin wrote as a caption of the post.
Chant Becoming a Trend
According to the Old Row Sports Twitter account, this was at least the fourth time in the past few days in which the chant was recited by the crowd in college football games.
“IT’S NOW A MOVEMENT,” the Old Row Sports account tweeted while sharing a video of the chant breaking out in Virginia Tech.
It was also sung by a small section of the crowd during the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers game against The Citadel Bulldogs on Thursday, September 2, as well as the Virginia Tech match against UNC the next evening.
Another three-second clip showing a small “f**k Joe Biden” chant was also recorded at the Auburn Tigers game against the Akron Zips on Saturday.
President’s Approval Rating Falls
Following Biden’s handling of the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan is a substantial hit to his approval rating as an obvious majority of Americans do not concur with the way he handled the situation.
The US President received criticism over the evacuation operation in Kabul, along with the suicide attack at the airport that killed more than 180 people included 13 US service members.
The chants had surfaced as a result of President Joe Biden’s actions towards the situation in Afghanistan.
A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that Biden’s approval rating now stands at 44 percent—a decline of eight points from May—while his disapproval rate is now at 51 percent, up nine points from the same period.
Results of the survey also found that even though 77 percent of Americans supported the withdrawal of US troops in Kabul, 60 percent of them do not approve of the way President Biden handled it.
Biden insisted on sticking to the August 31 deadline of evacuation even though there were still a number of US citizens certain to be left behind.
Additionally, a separate survey by Emerson College found that Donald Trump would have beaten Biden by a narrow margin should they go against each other in the 2024 election.
The poll generated hypothetical matchups in which the respondents had to answer, displaying a preference for Trump over Biden by a margin of 47 to 46 percent.
The poll also found that 60 percent of Democratic voters said they would like to see Biden as the presidential nominee in 2024, with 39 percent saying they would prefer someone else.
