More than 8 in 10 say nation is divided, just 36% believe it is headed in right direction: Poll

President Joe Biden came into office on the promise of restoring unity to a divided nation, but polling results suggest his efforts have thus far fallen short.

According to an NBC News poll marking his first 100 days as president, an overwhelming majority — 82% — of Americans still believe the country is divided.

Staggering results

Just 36% of respondents agree that the nation is headed in the “right direction.”

Despite his inaugural vow to serve as a president for all Americans, one of his first milestones was going longer than any of his modern predecessors without holding a solo press conference.

His message of unity also appeared to fade when he decided not to speak out against his party’s effort to impeach former President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

Further eroding that message was his administration’s push to pass a roughly $2 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package without the support of GOP lawmakers.

Critics say his approach to the ongoing public health crisis has also served to further divide the nation.

Causes for division

Instead of emphasizing economic recovery, he has called for continued mitigation measures such as social distancing and face masks, indicating that Americans might be able to celebrate Independence Day with small gatherings this year. Additionally, Biden has failed to denounce possible private-sector efforts to require so-called vaccine passports.

While White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that the federal government has no plans to implement such mandates, she said private companies and organizations could take the lead.

The Biden administration’s slate of executive orders has resulted in a partisan divide — particularly those related to border and immigration policies being blamed for a surge in migration along the U.S.-Mexico border.

For their part, Republican-led states have increasingly taken matters into their own hands regarding immigration, pandemic restrictions, and even gun rights issues.

Nevertheless, the NBC poll, which surveyed 1,000 adults between April 17-20 and has a margin of error of about 3.1%, found that Biden’s job approval rating is higher than Trump’s at the same point in his term. The president’s approval is lower, however, than former President Barack Obama’s was at his first 100 days in office.

  3. I remember hearing people say, after Biden stole the election, that he will bring unity to the country, and I wanted to tell them that they were full of something that stinks! I doubt that Biden will even be able to unite the Democrats and the liberals, and he sure won’t bring any unity to people who think like I do! His speech tonight should be good for a laugh! It will be interesting to see how well he can read what was written for him to say!

      1. I am not going to watch Biden, I will not call him President because he is not our President: President Trump is our real president. He is the best we have had in my life time and I am 75 years old.
        I don’t want to hear Biden’s lies and his BS. He is a awful president and he is not going to change because he has other people pulling his strings and telling him what to say.
        Biden is a JOKE!!!!!! and so is his so called vp Harris.

  4. Who are the brain damaged 36% of American who thinks China Joe is doing the right things. He’s brain damaged like those who thinks he doing things correctly. The entire cabal of voter thieves need to be kicked out of office, lock stock and barrel.

  5. It is more than obvious, it is not only Biden, but every one of the Dems including Soros, the High Tech Execs & many more of the Left that are destroying my beloved Country. The Fraudulent election which place an illegitimate Government in place in America is also part of the problem.

  6. Those who voted for a demented old fool should be ashamed. My dog could do a better job as POTUS! Your unreasonable hatred for Trump has nearly destroyed the country.

  7. 36% isn’t the 80 million votes he got. Far from it. So who were the 80 million people? I’ll bet there weren’t 80 million. Probably more like 36 million. But he won anyway…..it isn’t possible without some cheating and fraud.

  8. I won’t watch his speech either! And yes, he isn’t very bright, that is why Obama rigged the election to put Biden in, so HE could have his third term! Biden is obama’s Stooge, a fall guy, Obama is running this sh!t show, and laughing at the stupid people who voted for Biden! So—- the speech tonight will be obama’s Speech, delivered by the puppet in chief! Disgusting!
