An Associated Press-NORC Facility for Community Analysis survey indicates that President Joe Biden’s approval rating continues to plummet as Democratic voters are turning their backs against him ahead of the year’s midterms.
The current president’s poll numbers have dwindled to a very low 39 percent, which is actually the lowest number the AP has discovered since the beginning of his presidency. In fact, many other pollsters’ results have yielded something very similar, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
A surprising 2 out of 10 adults in the U.S. feel that the country is headed in the right direction, as reported by the AP. Within the Democrat population alone, only 33 percent of individuals felt that the U.S. is on the correct path, which is a 16 point decrease since April. Within the month of May, Biden’s approval rating among Democrats has dropped from 82 to 73 percent.
The AP has been told by Democrats that they are livid with the president and his actions.
29-year-old Milan Ramsey stated she and her family are “unable to afford the place where she grew up” because of skyrocketing inflation. “I don’t know how much worse it can get,” she said.
Ramsey shared that she does necessarily blame the president for the decline of the economy, however feels that he is “tired” and “hasn’t delivered on any of the promises.”
The poll revealed that over two-thirds of Americans are entirely dissatisfied with Biden’s economic performance. In fact, 51 percent of Americans, which includes 18 percent of Democrats, completely place the blame on Biden for destroying the economy.
58-year-old Democrat Manuel Morales is actually “questioning the benefits of Biden’s biggest legislative achievement, the American Rescue Plan, and its stimulus checks.”
“People did not want to go back to work” after the plan passed, Morales noted.
Morales immigrated to this country from Mexico and also had criticisms to share regarding Biden’s immigration policy.
The U.S. needs to police its border more stringently, Morales asserted. “It’s impossible to bring the whole of Central America and Mexico into this country.”
68-year-old Charles Penn may have best summarized the mindset of the individuals that spoke to the AP, claiming Biden ought to pay the price for the country’s economic struggles.
Biden is “the captain of the ship, so he’s responsible,” Penn stated.
