As we continue ever further into the morass that is the Biden administration, there are some very serious concerns about just where this nation is headed.
For months now we’ve watched inflation rise, gas prices explode, and political violence shake us to our cores. We’ve watched the FBI raid the home of a former, (and potentially a future), President, all amidst a backdrop of global upheaval that would never have started just two years ago.
It’s no wonder Americans are so despondent.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans think the United States is heading in the wrong direction under President Joe Biden, according to yet another bad poll for the president ahead of the midterm elections.
Despite grappling with low favorability ratings for much of his first term already, Biden’s popularity experienced a deep downturn in recent months amid growing pessimism over the economy.Trending:
Now, a whopping 74 percent of Americans say the country is on the wrong track, while just 21 percent feel the nation is headed in the right direction, according to a new survey from NBC News.
And it gets worse:
It found more than half of the respondents — 58 percent — feel ‘more worried that America’s best years may already be behind us,’ with just 35 percent thinking the best years are yet to come.
Among their main concerns, according to the poll, was the economy — with 68 percent of respondents believing the United States is already in a recession, despite Biden’s attestations that the economy is rebounding after the country’s inflation rate hit a 40-year high in June.
In total, the poll found, 55 percent of Americans now disapprove of the job the president is doing, while just 42 percent approve.
Biden has repeatedly suggested that he’ll be running for reelection in 2024, but based on this latest polling and the continued protestations from within his own party, the Democrats may need to start whipping up a Plan B, post-haste.
