A year into Biden’s presidency, he has already lost the confidence of most Americans.
Almost no one is happy about where the country is going. A new poll from Gallup found that only 17 percent of people are happy with the country’s direction.
Who are those people who make up that tiny percent? The most hardcore people of the left.
Gallup: Only 17% of Americans Approve of Country’s Direction
Just 17% of Americans approve of the direction the country is going in, the lowest rating in President Joe Biden’s first year in office, according to a new Gallup poll.
The poll’s release coincides with expectation that inflation, already at 7%, will rise. Biden’s approval numbers continue to dip — a Gallup poll in mid-January showed that 40% of U.S. adults approve of the job he is doing, his lowest to date. Congressional job approval is also at a low of 18%.
At the same time, Americans’ satisfaction with their own lives has ticked up to 85%, just 5 percentage points shy of the 2020 record-high point.
Personal satisfaction has been consistently and significantly higher than national satisfaction since 1979, when Gallup first tracked these two measures. But that divergence is near the record high as today’s 68-percentage-point gap between the two, from the Jan. 3-16 Mood of the Nation poll, is second only to last year’s 71-point gulf, Gallup observes.
Two years ago, before the COVID-19 pandemic, a record-high 65% of U.S. adults said they were “very satisfied” with their own lives, according to Gallup. Last year, the personal-satisfaction rating fell to 51%, and it remains at that level today. Another 34% are currently somewhat satisfied.
What has Biden done to improve things? All he has done is tear down things that were great under Trump.
