Once again, a Babylon Bee prophecy has been fulfilled.

Back in August, the publication that aims at being satirical ran the headline “Carter Says He’s Finally Hopeful That He Won’t Be the Worst Presidential Failure in His Lifetime.”

And just four months later, satire has once again become reality.

According to the Post Millennial:

The newest update from CNN is critical of Biden’s performance on the economy. Their framing on the topic pairs President Biden with the tenure of Jimmy Carter during the 1970s. A sort of comparison that previously the left wasn’t forthcoming in making when describing the current White House’s performance.

While a CNN poll isn’t of CNN viewers, it is amusing that it was their poll that came to this finding, as it’s hardly the result they want to see.

According to CNN’s latest in-house poll, they have 44 percent who approve of Biden’s “economic performance,” versus 55 percent who disapprove, with a minus-9 point spread for the net approval. The outlet contextualizes it by taking the total poll averages, of -13, and contrast that with the “average president at this point” in office having a +5. The devastating result is “18 points worse than the average.”

The lowest economic approval rating at this point in a presidency before Biden’s net economic approval of -13 was a net -8 approval for Jimmy Carter in January 1978.

And we all know how the electoral map looked when it was Carter up for re-election.
