A new poll’s majority – by far – says the “Let’s go Brandon” meme, used to slam President Joe Biden, is appropriate.

In fact, 59% of the respondents to the Trafalger Group poll who were familiar with the issue said even the original, “F— Joe Biden” also is just fine.

Paul Bedard in his column at the Washington Examiner, explained that by a margin of 58%-34% likely general election voters said they already knew about both chants.

The survey contacted 1,083 respondents who are likely general election voters, and the margin of error is 2.98%.

Fifty-eight percent were familiar with the chants, while 34% were not. Nearly 74% of Republicans and 39% of Democrats were familiar. Nearly 63% of independents also were.

As to being appropriate, 59% say both are appropriate and nearly 17% said ‘Brandon” is all right, but not the other.

Bedard said, “The chant started at college football games and it exploded after a NASCAR reporter mistook it for ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ when interviewing driver Brandon Brown. Now they are both used interchangeably.”

Mark Meckler, president of Convention of the States, for which the polling was done, said, “This data reveals that the phenomenon we’re seeing everywhere in this great nation is real, widespread, and has support from the people across party lines. The ‘Great American Pushback’ has begun and it’s going to grow. Americans have never taken well to tyranny, and they are not going to start now.”

It’s been on T-shirts, online, on posters and more. It’s been on the floor of the U.S. House and it’s met Biden as he travels around the country promoting his agenda.

It was in the headlines only a day earlier, when the Washington Post had to correct its reporting on the dispute.

In fact, it was called the “greatest correction in the history of journalism” when the publication addressed its report on a speech by Donald Trump Jr. back in September.

That report had said the crowd “broke into” a chant at the time, and it claimed that the chant was, in fact, “Let’s go Brandon.” But it wasn’t “Let’s go Brandon.”

The Post claimed the error was inserted into the story by an editor, but Twitchy pointed out the NASCAR event, which triggered it, didn’t happen until October.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also responded, getting a chuckle out of it.

The original Post piece was about how “Biden’s critics hurl increasingly vulgar taunts,” and incorrectly said the crowd’s message was “Let’s go Brandon.”

The softened version came about when NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast was interviewing racer Brandon Brown and commented on the crowd chanting “Let’s go Brandon.”

Stavast has not commented, so it’s unclear if she knew the actual chant or not.

Newsweek reported a song called “Let’s Go Brandon” — which combines footage of the original interview and a rapper wearing a Trumpian “Make Music Great Again” baseball cap — has now been viewed more than 3.27 million times on YouTube.

Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., recently ended a speech in the U.S. House with “Let’s go Brandon!”

Biden’s approval rating has plunged in recent weeks and months over a long list of failures, ranging from the southern border and inflation to Afghanistan and COVID. Even Democrats now are abandoning him.

Ironically, a recent report was released unveiling the flood of profane language found in the White House with Biden as president. The New York Post report said Biden is particularly fond of “dropping F-bombs.”

Politico called him a “potty mouth.”
