Almost 6 in 10 Americans do not like the job President Joe Biden has done since he entered the White House, with a whopping 56 percent saying they don’t see anything they have liked from his administration, according to a new poll. Ouch!
The poll was conducted by CNN.
“When those who disapproved of Biden’s overall performance were asked to name a single thing he’d done that they did approved of, 56% had nothing positive to say.”https://t.co/mGVje2e4Gb

56% Can’t Find ANYTHING They Have Liked
CNN Politics reported, “The President’s ratings have fallen across the board, the survey found. Just 41% approved of the way he’s handling his job while 58% disapproved, a significant drop from his approval numbers in CNN polling last year. Just 36% of independents and 9% of Republicans approved.”
The poll found Biden has also dipped among Democrats. “Although his approval rating still stood at 83% among Democrats, that was down from 94% late last summer,” CNN observed.
“Biden also continues to have more strong detractors than he does fervent supporters: 41% of Americans disapproved strongly of his performance as President versus 15% who strongly approved,” the news outlet noted. “Some of the shift in Biden’s numbers comes from a change in Americans’ partisan tilt: Republicans and Democrats were about at parity in the new poll, with fewer identifying as Democrats than in other recent CNN polling.”
So, fewer self-identified Democrats, Biden tanking in general…

But even as bad as this poll sounded for the current administration, one number still stuck out.
CNN reported (emphasis added), “When those who disapproved of Biden’s overall performance were asked to name a single thing he’d done that they did approved of, 56% had nothing positive to say.
The news outlet highlighted a poll participant’s words: “I’m hard pressed to think of a single thing he has done that benefits the country,’ wrote one survey respondent.”
Think about it: 56 percent could not think of a single positive action by this president.
This CNN poll is no outlier. Biden is down significantly in most polls.

Biden down in polls across the board
As The Political Insider reported on Thursday, “President Biden’s approval rating achieved a new lowlight with a Real Clear Politics average of all the most recent national surveys showing him drop below 40 percent.”
“The average of the polling data shows the President’s approval rating at 39.8 percent. An average of 54.4 percent of those in the major polls now say they disapprove of the job Biden is doing.”
The report added, “The news comes as the President has been battling multiple domestic crises including soaring inflation, soaring gas prices, and soaring numbers of illegal immigrants flooding the southern border.”
Many are predicting a bad midterm election for Democrats in 2022, much of it hinging on how Americans view the Biden administration.
Democrats must be wondering if it can get any worse. Given the trajectory of this president, the honest answer is ‘probably!’
The CNN Poll was conducted from January 10 through February 6.
