Biden and the Democrats have scored a major legislative win for their agenda and strong fundraising numbers, but a new poll shows that might not be enough for them come midterms.
According to the New York Post:
Nearly three-quarters of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track, according to a poll released on Sunday that shows President Biden’s job approval ratings mired in the low 40s as the midterm elections close in.
Representative of the deep dissatisfaction among Americans, 74% say the US is headed in the wrong direction, 58% believe the country’s best days are in the rearview mirror and 61% say they are so steamed they would be willing to march around for a day with a protest sign, the NBC News poll found.
Asked what the signs would say, Democratic voters chose “women’s rights,” “abortion rights,” and “prosecute Trump” — while Republicans said they would tote “impeach Biden,” “protect our freedom” and “protect 2nd Amendment” banners.
With 77 days to go before the November elections, and with Democratic control of Congress hanging in the balance, Biden’s job approval rating hasn’t budged in months.
The poll shows 42% of American voters approve of the president, but 55% disapprove — numbers that have remained virtually unchanged since October 2021.
