Even the media can’t cover up the disaster that is the Biden administration.
A new poll from ABC/IPSOS found Biden’s approval tanking on key issues.
69% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
57% disapprove of his handling of the economic recovery.
President Joe Biden is facing significant skepticism from the American public, with his job approval rating lagging across a range of major issues, including new lows for his handling of crime, gun violence and the economic recovery, a new ABC/Ipsos poll finds.
As the White House confronts rising and widespread concern about inflation, Americans are especially negative on how the Biden administration is managing this issue.
More than two-thirds of Americans (69%) disapprove of how Biden is handling inflation (only 28% approve) while more than half (57%) disapprove of his handling of the economic recovery. Partisan splits for inflation show expected negativity in Republican views (94% disapproving), but the survey also reveals weaknesses from Biden’s own party with only a slim majority of Democrats (54%) approving. Biden’s orbit is also hemorrhaging independent voters, with 71% disapproving of his handling of inflation.
The ABC/Ipsos poll, which was conducted by Ipsos in partnership with ABC News using Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel, reveals these rocky ratings for Biden at a time when the bulk of Americans name inflation and paying everyday bills as a top concern. Concern about inflation has eclipsed worry about the coronavirus pandemic, according to recent polls from Monmouth and AP-NORC, as Republicans continuously spotlight rising prices at the gas pump and the grocery store as a key issue for the upcoming midterm elections — likely to be a referendum on Biden’s performance.
These low job assessments in areas of high public concern have led to a new low in Biden’s overall approval rating, measured by FiveThirtyEight at 43%.
During an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Biden blamed his low info on “inaccurate information.”
On Friday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Tonight Show,” President Joe Biden said that part of the issue with his approval ratings is that “people are getting so much inaccurate information to them. I don’t mean about me, but about their situation.” And are “being told that Armageddon’s on the way. The truth is, the economy’s growing more than it has at any time in close to 60 years.” Biden also stated that fear of coronavirus is another reason for people being worried and acknowledged that there is inflation in areas that impact people.
Biden said, “Well, look, here’s the deal, I think that it’s — we’ve been in less than a year. A lot has happened, and look, people are afraid. People are worried. And people are getting so much inaccurate information to them. I don’t mean about me, but about their situation. And so, they’re being told that Armageddon’s on the way. The truth is, the economy’s growing more than it has at any time in close to 60 years. The unemployment rate’s down to 4.2%. It’s going to go lower, in my view. We do have inflation on things that, in fact, matter to people’s lives. You know, when you show up at a gas station and it’s $3.50 at your pump, although now because I took 50 billion — million barrels out of [the Strategic Petroleum Reserve], the gasoline is down below $3 in many places. It’s going to come down. It’s going to move.”
