After his first year in office, performance report cards for President Biden have popped up across various media outlets. What’s surprising is that even those who are most friendly toward Biden have published poor grades for him.
The following is a quick round-up.
“President Joe Biden’s first year in office has been a failure”
On January 19, Rasmussen published results of a national survey of likely voters revealing:
…that just 12% of Likely U.S. voters rate Biden’s first year in office Very Successful, while another 26% say his first year as president has been Somewhat Successful. Ten percent (10%) believe Biden has been Somewhat Unsuccessful during his first year in office, while 50% rate his first year Very Unsuccessful.
This survey sample was from 1,000 U.S. Likely Voter adults, conducted on January 12 and 13, 2022. Rasmussen gives the poll a +/- 3% margin of error.
“…it’s the numbers beneath Biden’s approval rating that paint a grim picture for the White House”
In the data gleaned from a mid-January NBC News backed poll (conducted by Hart Research Associates and Public Opinion Strategies), Biden’s base of “strong support” has eroded to a 15%, and a mere 5% believe his presidency has been “better than expected”.
Public Opinion Strategies’ Bill McInturff is quoted as saying, “This poll would have to be described as bleak, discouraging and truly terrible.”
