Biden approval drops to 22% among young adults, 24% among Hispanics

In a new Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday, President Joe Biden’s approval rating was only 33%, and showed that Biden was slipping even more among young people and minorities, both of which tend to vote Democrat in large numbers.

Only 22% of Americans age 18-34 approved of Biden, according to the poll. Among Hispanics, only 24% approved of him, and he couldn’t even get approval from a majority of black Americans–only 49% approved of him in the poll.

Overall, 64% of those surveyed disapproved of Biden’s handling of the economy and 34% said inflation was the most pressing national issue.

Biden came closest to a majority approval for his handling of COVID-19, with 47% approving and 46% disapproving. On every other issue, he is underwater in his approval ratings.

Blunder to blunder

The two main demographics still supporting Biden are Democrats at 79% and senior citizens at 43%, but even these numbers show how he has slipped since taking office in 2021.

Ever since the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan last August, Biden has seemed to go from blunder to blunder in his handling of both domestic and foreign affairs.

On the rare occasions he does speak to the press or the public, he makes serious gaffes like saying Putin “cannot” remain in power and promising to retaliate militarily against China if they attack Taiwan.

Recent reports have said that Biden was angry with his staffers for walking back those comments.

Blame game

Also concerning is that Biden has refused to take any responsibility for inflation and other problems plaguing the country.

In a speech last week, he called high food and gas prices the “Putin tax” and tried to say that inflation was only happening because of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, even though inflation had been rising for at least six months before Russia invaded Ukraine.

Polls like this one make it clear that the majority of Americans are not buying his blame game tactics, no matter how many times he repeats them.

Unfortunately for Biden, part of the president’s role is that the “buck stops here;” even when some of the factors influencing conditions may be out of his control, the leader of the free world bears some responsibility when things go wrong.
