A new poll has found that over 70 percent of Americans believe that the country is on the wrong track, Newsmax reports.
What’s harder to believe: that the number is so high, considering that to get that high requires a lot of Democrats to feel that way? Or, that the number is so low, considering just how bad the country is doing under President Joe Biden’s leadership?
The poll comes from the leftist network NBC. The outlet polled 1,000 adults during a period from October 23rd to October 26th.
What the outlet found is that 71 percent of Americans currently believe that the country is “on the wrong track.” That’s an 8 percentage point increase from August.
Breaking things down by party affiliation, the outlet found that 93 percent of Republicans believe the country is on the wrong track as well as 70 percent of Independents. Perhaps even more surprising, though, is that 48 percent of Democrats feel this way.
Things have to be going extremely badly for almost half of Democrats to admit as much while their guy is in office. And, they are.
The NBC poll also has Biden’s approval at only 42 percent. That’s a significant drop since August when his approval in NBC’s poll was 49 percent. But, it is in line with other recent polls.
Real Clear Politics currently has Biden’s average approval at only 43 percent and his average disapproval at 51.1 percent. This means that Biden is currently underwater, on average, by 8.1 percentage points.
Another recent poll from NPR/PBS has what must be an even more concerning finding for Biden. What the poll shows is that, currently, only a small percentage – 36 percent – of Democrats would want Biden to be on the 2024 presidential ticket.
44 percent of Democrats said that, in 2024, they would want someone other than Biden to be on the presidential ticket. And, 20 percent indicated that they were unsure whether they would want Biden on the ticket or someone else.
So, overall, it appears that the American people, including an increasing percentage of Democrats, are in agreement with former President Donald Trump, here, who recently gave Biden a failing grade for his first ten months in office.
With the southern border crisis, the terrible economy, the Afghanistan debacle, along with other foreign affairs failures, and much more, what’s not to like about Biden and his administration?
