The recent polling conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research has shown that President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are plummeting. This comes as no surprise to many Americans who have been experiencing the negative effects of his administration’s policies firsthand.
Biden’s approval rating currently stands at 38 percent, which is a significant drop from his previous ratings in February and January. The lowest point of his presidency was in July 2021 when his ratings hit 36 percent. The rising costs of gasoline, food, and other essentials have been affecting US households, and Biden has been unable to provide any solutions to these problems.
The poll results reveal that the public has doubts about Biden’s ability to manage the national economy and project authority as he navigates the country’s economic course. The US is facing a troubled world marked by inflation and bank failures, and Biden has been unable to address these challenges effectively.
The Democrats who support Biden also have doubts about his ability to handle the economy. Only 63 percent of Democrats approve of his handling of the economy, while 76 percent approve of how he’s handling his job as president overall. This indicates that even his own party is beginning to lose faith in him.
According to the AP:
The difference between Biden’s approval overall and his approval on the economy is driven largely by Democrats, 76% of whom say they approve of how he’s handling his job as president while 63% approve of his handling of the economy. Few Republicans approve of Biden on either count.
Democrats under the age of 45 feel less positive about Biden, causing a drag on his approval ratings. Just 54% approve of the president’s economic leadership, compared to 72% of Democrats older than 45. Similarly, just 66% of Democrats under 45 approve of Biden overall, compared to 85% of older Democrats.
Biden’s administration had initially suggested that the high inflation rate was transitory. However, it has become a more significant issue for businesses and families, leading to doubts about the president’s ability to manage the economy effectively. His lack of solutions and ineffective policies are causing severe damage to the American economy, and it’s time for the public to demand change.
