A new poll conducted by Insider Advantage for the Center for American Greatness found that 58 percent of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance. The poll was conducted December 17-19 and has a margin of error of 3.6 percent. Almost a year into the Biden presidency, no one should be surprised that a large majority of Americans are unhappy with him.
The past year has seen a string of failures by Biden and his team. Consider, there was America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan—a sound policy advocated by President Trump—that turned into a humiliating debacle that armed the Taliban with $85 billion worth of American military equipment that Biden and his generals inexplicably left behind rather than removing or destroying it.
Add to that the Biden regime’s decision to hold hundreds of Americans as political prisoners over their participation in the rallies and protests that took place on January 6. Many of the prisoners are being held in squalid conditions, in solitary confinement for extended periods, are being denied bail, and are sometimes punished by reducing their meals to one per day. And then there os the Biden Justice Department being turned loose on parents who oppose racialist curriculum in their kids’ schools.
Poll respondents are also increasingly alarmed about inflation, which is now running at the rate of 6.8 percent per year, a 40-year high. Biden’s inflation makes everything more expensive, beggaring the American middle class even as it enriches the Democrats’ base of billionaires and mega-corporations. The same survey found that 65 percent of Americans have been negatively impacted by “the cost of goods and services including food, gasoline, and your overall monthly expenses.”
The poll also finds good news for Republicans, with voters preferring GOP control of the Senate by 51 percent to 42 percent and control of the House of Representatives 48 percent to 43 percent.
