    A Joe Biden voter explained why he became "disgusted" with the
    president's administration and raised concerns about the direction the Democratic Party is headed.

    "A year in and I'm disgusted with them both. I'm disgusted with [Vice President] Kamala Harris and Joe Biden," Isaiah Carter, a New York
    Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) worker and member of the
    Democratic Party, told Fox News.

    Carter listed critical race theory and the Afghanistan withdrawal as
    key issues he has with Biden. He also faulted the president's COVID-19
    policies and his propagating of gender ideology issues, especially
    among school-age children, by the administration.

    Carter has voted Democrat in the past four presidential elections and
    has actively supported Democratic candidates and policies for over 16

    During the 2020 election, Carter did not support the Trump
    administration but was also concerned about how far-left candidates
    like Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would govern. He said he
    voted for Biden thinking he was the "safest choice."

    "I donated to Biden ... I supported Kamala Harris from day one ... I
    even starred in Biden's victory video ‘America the Beautiful,’" Carter said, referring to a post-election video on Biden’s YouTube page.

    "I did more than I've ever done in my entire life for any candidate
    whatsoever, and I'm disgusted," the 40-year-old Brooklynite said.

    Biden’s low approval rating has declined in recent weeks. A recent
    Gallup poll showed Biden at 40% approval, his lowest to date and down
    from 43% in December.

    "I don’t like critical race theory," Carter, a Black man, told Fox
    News. "Critical race theory is a Trojan horse that has a lot of darker
    elements hiding inside."

    "I don't like the idea of kids – Black kids, White kids, whatever – separated by race and then made to feel like one group is oppressed and
    the other group is not," he continued.

    On Afghanistan, Carter said, "I’m not upset that we left, I’m upset
    about how we left."

    He said Biden didn't do enough to secure U.S. property, troops and its

    "The video of refugees dropping from C-17s to their deaths will haunt
    this presidency and will haunt this country for decades to come," he

    "I don't like where we are now with COVID," Carter told Fox News. He
    said the Biden administration did a good job with vaccine distribution initially but criticized the president for pushing additional
    restrictions and mandates he didn’t believe were consistent with
    scientific data.
    Finally, Carter said Biden’s use of Title VII and IX to promote
    progressives' gender identity agenda has harmed women’s rights and has negatively affected young children who are being subjected to gender
    ideology discussions in schools across the country.

    His first day in office Biden signed an executive order expanding
    federal laws that prohibit sex discrimination to include discrimination
    based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

    "If I had known Biden was this much of a genderist … there's no way I
    would have voted for that man," Carter said.

    A self-proclaimed classical liberal, Carter said modern liberals have
    moved so far to the left that they have become unrecognizable.

    "I don't recognize where we're at anymore. And I'm pissed about it," he

    Carter has received significant backlash from people on the left for
    expressing his thoughts online. He criticized groupthink, which he said
    has overtaken the political left.


    "Democrats, I need you to listen to me carefully," Carter said.

    "The fact that I, a blue-collar Democratic worker, am speaking to Fox
    News, should scare you," he said.

    "The fact that they're willing to talk to me and MSNBC and CNN are not,
    that is a problem," he continued. "That should tell you all how far
    we've fallen away from the common man."
