According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, only 33% of Americans view President Biden’s administration favorably, down 17 points since February. This is clearly further evidence that the American people are already tired and dissatisfied with the Biden administration’s response to rising inflation and the resurgence in the number of COVID cases.
More than half of American adults (53 percent) disapprove of the job the president is doing, while 13 percent told the pollster they could not decide.
While Biden recorded his highest approval rating last February – almost a year ago now – with a 50 percent approval rating, in a poll conducted by the same agency, the number has not moved above 40 since mid-September.
At the same time, the president’s disapproval rating in the poll has risen 17 percentage points since the all-time low recorded on February 3.
Three-quarters of Democrats approve of the president they elected in the last presidential election, in addition to 25 percent of independents and only 2 percent of Republicans.
These are certainly very bad numbers for the president.
In addition, the same poll found that 57 percent of potential voters completely disapprove of the administration’s handling of the economy, while 34 percent approve.
As for the handling of the pandemic, 55 percent disapprove, 39 percent are in favor and, finally, on foreign policy, 54 percent of voters disapprove while 35 percent are happy with the “great” job done by Joe Biden, especially in the defeat in Afghanistan, which so humiliated the country.
As the one-year anniversary of President Joe Biden’s inauguration approaches, 50 percent of Americans say the president is doing just what they expected, 39 percent say he is doing worse than they expected, and just 7 percent say he is exceeding expectations (I wonder who would make up that 7 percent).
On the other hand, 49 percent say the president is further dividing the country, while just 42 percent say the opposite, that he is working to unite the country — one of Biden’s most-repeated campaign promises during the 2020 presidential campaign
Another interesting piece of data offered by this Quinnipiac poll is that, while Americans are not very happy with the current administration, most do not view Trump very favorably either: almost 6 out of 10 respondents (59 percent) said they would not like to see former President Donald Trump back in the White House, while 33 percent said they would.
