According to a new poll, President Joe Biden is in hot water with voters.
Quinnipiac released a poll that found Biden’s approval rating has dropped significantly since he took office.
“President Joe Biden receives a negative 38 – 53 percent job approval rating, the lowest score he’s received from the American people on his job performance since taking office,” the group said.
“In Quinnipiac’s last national poll released 3 weeks ago, he received a negative 42 – 50 percent job approval rating.”
The poll numbers come after a string of controversial issues for Biden, from the surge of illegal immigration to the deadly withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan to rising inflation and economic concerns even as Congress considers several trillion dollars in additional spending.
“Today, Republicans (94 – 4 percent) and independents (60 – 32 percent) disapprove of the job Biden is doing, while Democrats approve 80 – 10 percent,” Quinnipiac said. “More than half of Americans say 55 – 42 percent that the Biden administration is not competent in running the government.”
Now Biden is struggling to get his proposed $4.5 trillion in federal spending across the finish line in Congress. Whether he can get his legislation passed and how much it raises taxes and the national debt will likely have a major impact on his polling and Democrats’ fate in 2022.
“Battered on trust, doubted on leadership, and challenged on overall competency, President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues its downward slide to a number not seen since the tough scrutiny of the Trump administration,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.
