Polls: Biden Failing At Nearly Everything, Including Overall Competence

Videos by OutKick

Americans think Joe Biden is failing at … well, just about everything, according two new polls.

But other than that, he’s been great. Or something.

The polls, conducted by NBC News and the Associated Press-NORC, were released Thursday to mark the one-year anniversary of Biden’s inauguration. And it wasn’t pretty.

As the New York Post noted, Biden received “poor marks for his handling of the economy, the COVID-19 pandemic, relations with Russia and overall competence — with one survey finding less than half of Democrats want him to seek re-election.”

Other than that, he’s doing a bang-up job.

By the way, you can read more about Americans not wanting Biden to run again in this post from OutKick’s Bobby Burack.

As for the polls, 54% disapproved of Biden in the NBC survey. It was even worse in the AP poll, with 56% of Americans giving Biden a big ol’ no.

“It’s a far cry from July, when the AP-NORC poll showed Biden with a job approval rating of 59 percent,” the Mark Moore of the Post wrote. “That number slipped to 50 percent a month later and has continued to slide amid the debacle of the Afghanistan withdrawal, a surge in coronavirus cases, and a stymied domestic legislative agenda.”

Perhaps the most damning of all of this for Biden is that Americans don’t think he’s competent. Once people lose faith that you have any idea what you’re doing, it’s sort of hard to win that back.

“This poll would have to be described as bleak, discouraging and truly terrible,” Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies told NBC News.

Overall, it’s a been a bad couple of weeks for Biden. Not only is he failing in the polls, but the Supreme Court voted against his unpopular nationwide vaccine mandate, as relayed by our Alejandro Avila.

Other than that, he’s been a smash hit.

  1. Just wait until Michael err Michelle Obama and HRC are running mates. It will get much worse. The Demokkkrats have the playbook, paint every GOP contender either a white supremacist or a vehicle of white supremacy (if the candidate is non-white) and lie about voter suppression. Plus we know they are capable of creating madness over a predominately non-deadly virus. They found a way to manipulate elections and are now scrambling because the midterms don’t look so good. Manchin and Sinema will need balls of steel to sustain their positions during the onslaught that will continue to come their way. Demokkkrats only know how to cheat.
