By the day, it appears that Joe Biden’s popularity is slipping even further. The majority of Americans are unconvinced that the president is “on the right track,” and they doubt he and his administration are doing everything possible to put America first.
According to a CNN/SSRS poll of more than 1,400 adults, just 21% of Americans think things are going well in the United States under Joe Biden. That’s around 2 out of 10 people, with only 18% believing that economic conditions were excellent.
In other words, Biden’s economic record and focus on hot-button issues such as inflation, skyrocketing gasoline costs, and the disastrous Southern Border do not sit well with Americans.
Furthermore, when the CNN poll asked people if Biden “has the proper priorities,” only 31% said yes, whereas 68% thought that the President had “not paid enough attention to America’s most important issues.”
It’s no surprise that Biden’s favorability rating is barely 36%, with 54% having an unfavorable view. Kamala Harris has a considerably lower approval rating of 32%, while even First Lady Jill Biden is at 34%.
According to a CNBC poll published this week, Biden’s poor approval ratings are due in large part to the out-of-control economy. Only 30% of Americans give President Joe Biden a positive evaluation of the economy. Biden’s efforts to combat inflation, according to 51% of respondents, are “making no difference.”
Biden’s actions are “actually harming” the economy, according to 30% of respondents. While just 12% think his strategies are “helping.”
Last week, CNN data analyst Harry Enten stated that Biden’s popularity ratings were continuing to drop owing to “inflation eating away at his presidency.”
At the same moment in his presidency, no other president has had a higher disapproval rating than Joe Biden, according to Harry Enten of CNN.
When asked how Biden’s numbers compared to those of former President Barack Obama, Enten stated: “We can compare both Joe Biden’s inflation disapproval rating and overall disapproval rating, and what we discover is that his inflation disapproval rating is over 70%. His overall displeasure is still in the fifties.”
“But, when you compare it to every other president at this point in their first term throughout polling history, he is the worst on both counts. And the reason for his poor overall performance is because inflation is devouring his presidency alive at this moment.”
