60% Americans disapprove of Biden’s performance during 1st year in office


Washington, Feb. 11, 2022 (Sputnik/Naija247News) 58 per cent of Americans disapprove of President Joe Biden’s performance during his first 13 months in office, with only 41 per cent liking it.

A new CNN poll conducted by SSRS over the past month revealed that some 41 per cent of Americans strongly disapproved of Biden’s performance in office and only 15 per cent strongly approved, the poll results showed.

In addition, fewer responders identified as Democrats than in any other recent surveys, the pollsters found.

Among the 58 per cent who disapproved of Biden’s performance, more than half of them had nothing positive to say about the president’s record at all.

Specifically, the disapproval of Biden and his administration handling of the economy had been particularly pronounced, which decreased in the past two months by additional eight per cent to 37 per cent.

While Biden remained popular with the Democratic party base, his support was falling even among that segment of voters, with approval down from 94 per cent to 83 per cent compared to a year ago.

Only 15 per cent strongly approved of Biden’s performance as president, according to the poll results.

The poll was conducted Jan. 10 through Feb. 6 among a random national sample of 1,527 adults initially reached by mail and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.3 per cent.
