Biden Less Popular Than Cheney Was Eight Years Ago

The latest poll from the Pew Research Center:

While both the president and first lady enjoy higher favorability ratings than either of their predecessors did early in their first terms, the same cannot be said for the current vice president. Only about half of Americans (51%) say they have a favorable impression of Joe Biden – comparable to the 55% who felt favorably toward Al Gore in April 1993 and lower than the 58% favorability rating Dick Cheney received in July 2001.
Biden’s favorability has slipped 12 points since January, when 63% offered a favorable impression of him on the eve of his inauguration.

Oh, now you’ve done it, Pew. You’re in trouble. As President Obama told us, “nobody messes with Joe Biden.”
