In his first month as president, Biden enjoyed an approval rating ranging from 55% to 59%. Among the several executive orders he signed, Congress enacted the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.
In August, he made the decision to remove American forces from Afghanistan. The negative coverage of the bungled withdrawal by right- and left-leaning news outlets precipitated a steep slide in his presidency.
The combination of increasing inflation and supply shortages, record gas prices, a deliberately open border, and Russia’s conflict in Ukraine have rendered Biden’s administration a shambles.
Nevertheless, despite his gaffes and mishaps, Biden continues to retain a steadfast stance in critical policy areas where he feels alternative approaches might ameliorate American issues. The cost of gasoline is one of these factors. However, he would not touch it because of those pushing for the Green New Deal.
It should come as no surprise to anyone, with the possible exception of Biden, that he is now exceedingly unpopular among Americans.
According to a survey issued by Yahoo News and YouGov on Thursday, one in five Americans believe President Biden should run for reelection, while the great majority believe he should resign.
Biden’s chances of winning reelection in 2024 are slim as he approaches the halfway mark of his term. According to the study, only 18 percent of respondents thought Biden should run again.
In May, seven percentage points fewer people felt he should run for office. According to Yahoo!, this is “the lowest number to date.”
In addition, only 35% of Democrats believe Biden should run for reelection, a decline of 8% from May. Only nine percent and twelve percent of Republicans and independents feel Biden should run again, respectively.
64 percent of American people believe he should not run again:
Meanwhile, when asked “who they would rather see as the Democratic nominee for president in 2024,” only about a quarter (27%) of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents now say Biden. Fewer say Vice President Kamala Harris (19%); most say either “someone else” (20%), they’re “not sure” (30%) or that they “wouldn’t vote” (4%).
The survey was conducted between July 8-11, 2022, of 1,672 U.S. adults, and coincides with yet another dismal economic report that Biden and Democrats are attempting to spin. A 9.1 percent annual increase in consumer prices was reported in June, surpassing analysts’ predictions:
Compared with a month earlier, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index was up 1.3 percent.
Economists had expected CPI to rise at an annual rate of 8.8 percent, up from 8.6 percent in May. They expected a month-over-month increase of 1.1 percent. Inflation has American families hard by raising prices for everyday necessities like food, gasoline, housing, transportation, and utilities. Huge increases in the price of gasoline in June, which hit new all-time highs several times during the month, started to sap household and business spending on other items. CONTINUE READING…
