A new poll has revealed that voters are less than happy with President Biden and congressional Democrats to say the least – expressing that they are vastly underwhelmed with what the party has been able to accomplish in just shy of a year.
The poll is a major indicator that the Democrats are headed for disastrous losses in the 2022 midterm election and follows a separate poll released earlier this week which puts Biden’s approval rating at an all-time low.
Biden’s numbers have been bogged down by fear of never-ending inflation and a rise in coronavirus cases which has prompted a more tyrannical response from the White House.
The president’s policy agenda in Congress has also recently stalled out thanks to Democrat Senator Joe Manchin’s opposition to the radical legislation.
In a poll conducted Dec. 18-20 by Morning Consult and Politico, 41% of respondents said congressional Democrats have accomplished less than they expected, compared to 10% saying they accomplished more than expected and 32% saying they accomplished about what they expected.
The numbers for Biden on meeting voter expectations were similar: Forty-two percent believe the president has accomplished less than expected, 11% say more than expected and 38% say he has accomplished about what they expected, the poll says.
Meanwhile, just 41% of Americans now say they approve of the job Biden has been doing, say the findings from a joint NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist College study.
Biden has also seen his support among independent voters plummet by eight points in just one week according to PBS.
The poll was conducted Dec. 11-13. Among its findings, according to PBS:
Fifty-five percent of Americans say they disapprove of Biden’s job performance, with 44% saying they strongly disapprove. The 55% disapproval is 20 points higher than when Biden took office, while the “strongly disapprove” result is six points higher than in a Marist poll taken just a week earlier.
In findings along party lines: Ninety-five percent of Republicans say they disapprove of Biden’s job performance, and while the president enjoys support from 87% of voters in his own party, his disapproval rate among Democrats has climbed by six points since he took office, PBS reported.
Among independents: Two-thirds of voters not affiliated with a party say they disapprove of Biden, with half saying they strongly disapprove, according to PBS. Both results mark increases of at least 30 points since Inauguration Day. Overall, just 29% of independents back the president, the report said.
Still, the Biden administration seems to be living in some sort of fantasy land, with the president reportedly claiming that Americans are better off than they were a year ago.
Biden made the blatantly false claim in a year-end recap to congressional members.
During 40-year high inflation, high crime, high numbers of migrants crossing the southern border, the fractured supply chain, and omicron chaos, the White House dubbed the memo, “2021: POTUS Delivered Results for Working Families,” and touted vaccination rates and reopened schools, Axios reported.
“Before President Biden took office: less than 1% of Americans were vaccinated,” the memo reportedly states. “Today: More than 71% of American adults are fully vaccinated.”
“Before President Biden took office: less than 46% of schools were open. Today, 99% of schools are open,” the memo reportedly continued, citing successes that were Trump administration priorities.
Axios also reported Tuesday that Americans are worn out and perhaps disinterested in Biden’s supposed coronavirus-related success, focusing on instead inflation, immigration, and crime.
