Newly released polling data shows the majority of Americans are unhappy with the direction of the nation under President Joe Biden.
The poll, from NBC News, found that 72% of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction.
“A new NBC poll says 72% say the country is headed in the wrong direction and 61% say their family’s income is falling behind the cost of living,” said Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo. “Think about that while you’re kickboxing and drinking margaritas.”
Meanwhile, a Morning Consult/Politico poll found 37% of voters give Biden an “F” for his work so far.
“That’s the grade they’re giving him after one year in office,” Trish Regan said on her podcast. “Not too good there. And then when you look at the rest of the numbers, it really doesn’t look that much better, especially when you see that fifty two percent of Americans are rating him as a quote, weak leader. Now, that doesn’t surprise me.”
RealClearPolitics, which aggregates several political polls, has Biden’s popularity at a new low. Their average has Biden’s job approval at below 41% with disapproval at 55%.
At the same time, Americans are more concerned about things like COVID and the economy and have less confidence in the president’s ability to handle those issues.
Recent Gallup polling data found 58% of those surveyed say COVID is getting worse. Quinnipiac has Biden at only 39% approval for his handling of the pandemic, with 55% disapproving of his work in that regard.
“The hopefulness Americans felt last spring after the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines was first dashed over the summer by the delta variant, then recovered briefly as cases subsided, and is now being crushed by omicron,” Gallup said. “Along with the 20% of U.S. adults who currently say the pandemic is improving, 22% think it is staying the same and 58% believe it is worsening.”
