Just gonna say, I don't give a 💩 about Biden's "approval rating." Trump's never got above 45%, and yet he won a massive popular vote count (voter fraud!!!!!). I'd rather have a quietly confident and wholly competent POTUS than one obsessing over his polls.

Makes me think I know understand why Abbott did this:

"Look! Over there! VODKA!!!!" Or it's primary time, and he wants a few more votes. Lots of tee-totallers among Republican voters in Texas. He's probably going for them.
Only 1.2% of U.S. vodka imports come from Russia, according to data from the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States. #GregAbbott #Russia #vodka #BoycottRussia #Texas #TexasRepublicans #Ukraine #UkraineRussia #2022Election https://t.co/4hIELTvBrx— San Antonio Current (@SAcurrent) February 28, 2022
