Poll Reveals Most People Think Biden’s First Year In Office Was A Failure

Daily Wire

A majority of Americans say President Joe Biden’s first year in office was a failure, following foreign and domestic policy failures such as the Afghanistan withdrawal, inflation, and the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

A new poll, conducted by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll found that 56% of respondents said Biden’s first year in office was a failure, while just 39% said it was a success, NPR reported.

“What’s more, 54% said he’s not fulfilling his campaign promises, and 52% said he has done more to divide the country than unite it, despite uniting the country being a pillar of Biden’s 2020 presidential run,” the outlet noted.

Even 66% of Independents said Biden’s first year was a failure, a number that does not bode well for Democrats heading into the 2022 midterm elections.

“The president is clinging to just a 39% overall approval rating, a 36% approval for his handling of the economy and 47% for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Just 30% of respondents said they think the U.S. is headed in the right direction, days before Biden is set to give his first formal State of the Union address,” NPR reported. “All are the worst marks of his presidency in the survey.”
