President Joe Biden hasn’t had a good first year and a new survey reflects that.
According to a survey from NPR/PBS NewsHour and Marist, 56 percent of those surveyed said Biden’s first year was a failure, while just 39 percent gave him a passing grade.
Also, two-thirds of independents — 66 percent — gave Biden a failing grade as well.
“A majority of respondents also said Biden is not fulfilling his campaign promises. Fifty-four percent said this is the case, while 52 percent said Biden actually has done more to divide the country than bring it together,” the Western Journal reported.
Biden has only a 39 percent approval rating overall, according to the survey.
“These are sort of rock-bottom numbers,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, which conducted the poll. “It’s about as low as you’re going to see him [Biden].”
Biden’s approval numbers have been falling steadily for months, beginning with the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“On the eve of his State of the Union, the president has hit a new low as inflation and economic anxiety hit new highs. The president is now underwater on every top domestic and foreign policy issue,” said Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll, which was this week as well.
Hot Air adds:
Biden’s overall disapproval is at 55% with 39% saying they strongly disapprove. The poll was conducted this week on Wednesday and Thursday so news of the Russian invasion of Ukraine was dominating the airwaves when some of these folks were responding. And on the issue of Russia specifically, 64% of respondents said Biden was “too lenient” while just 5% said he was “too tough.”
