Joe Biden’s job approval is a lousy 44/56 (18/40 strong) in the new CBS News/YouGov poll. Right track/wrong track is 26/74. Condition of the economy is 26/69 bad. 65 percent say he’s slow to react to events and issues, only 35 percent say he acts promptly. https://t.co/VvqPxfqR1K

Many are predicting a red wave of GOP victories, with Republicans likely taking back the House, and perhaps the Senate.
If so, the problems will worsen for Biden for the next two years of his term as he faces more opposition from conservative leaders.
