Joe Biden may have been enjoying high approval numbers for a time, but it’s clear that time is over according to a new poll.
As reported by The Hill, Biden’s poll numbers have fallen by another 10 points, landing him at just over half the population approving of the job he’s doing:
A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released Monday found Biden’s approval dropping to 52 percent. He may still be above water — only 43 percent of respondents disapprove of the job he’s doing in the Oval Office — but he’s down 10 points from where he was in June, when his approval was at 62 percent.
The Democrat-controlled Congress isn’t receiving a lot of confidence from the populace either:
Congress doesn’t rate any better among voters. Forty-five percent say they approve of the way lawmakers are doing their jobs, down 9 points from June. Disapproval of Congress, meanwhile, rose from 46 percent in June to 55 percent in July, according to the poll.
According to The Hill, the reasons behind the drop are numerous. One such is the rise in COVID-19 cases across the nation, which the leftist press is doing everything in their power to make feel like a second apocalypse. It’s a backfiring strategy when you think about it, as the Democrats were using the COVID-19 numbers to re-implement draconian lockdowns on the populace again and scare people into obedience, but it seems to be making them seem more incompetent than they already do.
However, while The Hill points to COVID, I’m willing to bet it has more to do with the economy, which has been sinking faster than an iceberg-struck ship and the confidence in it is going down with it. This was confirmed by The Hill as well:
Optimism about the U.S. economy fared even worse in the poll, with the number of respondents who say it’s on the right track falling to 43 percent from 49 percent in June. Forty-nine percent now say the economy is on the wrong track, up from 42 percent in June.
That still leaves 53 percent who believe it’s strong as opposed to 47 who say it’s weak, however, this downward trend isn’t a good look for Democrats doing their best to keep their head above water in terms of agenda and popularity.
The full results of the poll will be released later this week.
