Nearly 60 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s job performance poll
Fifty-eight percent of Americans said they disapprove of Biden’s performance, while only 41 percent approved. In December, the same poll found that 49 percent of Americans approved and 51 percent disapproved of Biden.
Only 36 percent of independents and 9 percent of Republicans approved Biden’s job in the new survey. Eighty-three percent of Democrats still approve of Biden, but that’s a drop from 94 percent last summer.
In a sign of how tough it could be to turn the tide when those who disapproved of Biden were asked to name one thing that they approved of during his tenure, 56 percent could not come up with an answer.
The survey is the latest in a string of polls showing Biden’s approval plummeting.
The administration has been hit with criticism from the political spectrum over inflation, handling of the coronavirus, foreign policy, and more.
It has responded by touting its infrastructure bill and deployment of vaccinations across the country, though those arguments have thus far failed to stop the backslide in Biden’s poll numbers.
The poor polling has caused Democrats to sound the alarm over the November midterm elections, warning that such low approval ratings could lead to Republicans flipping both chambers of Congress.
The concern is particularly sharp relief compared to the 2010 cycle when a massive Republican wave helped the GOP flip more than 60 House seats and retake the chamber. In January 2010, Americans were roughly evenly split on how then-President Obama‘s first year in the office went. Now, 57 percent of Americans said Biden’s first year in office was a failure.
CNN poll, conducted by SSRS, surveyed 1,527 adults from Jan. 10 to Feb. 6 digitally or by telephone with a live interviewer. It has a 3.3 percentage point margin of error.

Notes from the Editor
With the Democrats taking Republican districts to court when we see gerrymandering, yet claiming they are victims of racism when doing the same thing, you quickly see the total panic from the Left. With the mood of America turning against them, their inability to control some members of their party to give them the authority to grab more power, we are now seeing a mass exodus of voters from the party, even politicians are leaving or retiring rather than face a certain defeat.
At this point, it looks like the Democrats will lose control of the House; the question is, will they also do the same with the Senate?
