A new survey has revealed that the majority of Americans are worried about the country’s future under President Joe Biden.
The new poll revealed that the majority of Americans are pessimistic about the direction of the country at the sixth month mark of the Biden administration, a stark contrast from the last time the survey was conducted.
“A majority — 55% — of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2,” ABC News reported.
“In the early May survey, Americans were more optimistic than pessimistic by a 28-percentage point margin. Optimism is now under water by 10 points. Looking ahead to the next 12 months, fewer than half — 45% — now report feeling optimistic about the way things are going, a significant drop from about two-thirds (64%) in the May poll.”
The poll also found that the average American disapproves of a number of things Joe Biden is handling.
When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Joe Biden is handling immigration and the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border? Approve 37 percent. Disapprove 61 percent.”
On gun violence, only 37 percent approved of the way he’s handling it compared with a staggering 61 percent disapproval.
Asked about Biden’s handling of crime, only 39 percent approved compared to 58 disapproving.
Another mainstream poll, Gallup, released new numbers late last week that also showed that Biden was headed in the wrong direction as he scored the lowest numbers yet of his presidency in the left-wing poll.
Gallup reported, “Biden’s latest job approval rating of 50% is down from 56% in June. Before this month, his ratings had not shown meaningful variation during his time in office, and the current figure marks the lowest measured for him to date.”
“The new rating is from a July 6-21 Gallup poll, which also finds that 45% of U.S. adults disapprove of Biden’s performance and 5% do not have an opinion. It comes at a time when U.S. progress in fighting the coronavirus has stalled, with vaccination rates slowing and case levels now rising. The economic recovery continues, with unemployment declining and stock market values near record highs. But consumers are paying higher prices for gas and other goods. Biden has also struggled to deliver on his promise of greater bipartisanship, although negotiations on an infrastructure bill continue in the Senate.”
But the senile old Joe Biden is not the only one in the White House losing favorability with the American people. Vice President Kamala Harris’ numbers have also taken a nosedive as more voters holding unfavorable views toward her than favorable views.
Newsweek reported, “Survey results from Politico/Morning Consult released on Wednesday showed that just 45 percent of respondents held a favorable view of the vice president’s performance. Meanwhile, 47 percent had an unfavorable view and 5 percent said they had no opinion. The survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percent and was conducted from July 16 to 18.”
“That polling aligned fairly closely with a separate survey conducted by The Economist/YouGov from July 10 to 13. In that poll, 44 percent of voters said they viewed Harris somewhat or very favorably. But nearly half (48 percent) said they had a very or somewhat unfavorable view of the vice president. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 percent.”
