New CNN Poll Shows Deepening Biden Flump

Joe Biden

A newly released CNN Poll conducted by SSRS found that 52% of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s performance as president, with a vast majority saying that he hasn’t paid enough attention to the nation’s most important problems.

According to the survey, more than a third of Americans call the economy the most pressing problem facing the country (36%). Among the group that sees it that way, 72% say Biden hasn’t been attentive to the right issues. Only 20% consider the coronavirus pandemic the nation’s top problem, the poll found.

CNN reported that “all told, 48% of adults approve of the way Biden is handling the job while 52% disapprove. Intensity within those ratings breaks sharply against the President. The share saying they strongly approve of Biden’s performance has dropped to just 15%, down from 34% in April.”

The poll comes one year out from the 2022 midterm elections.

CNN noted that the percentage of Americans who say Biden hasn’t had the right priorities “is similar to the share who felt that way about Trump in September 2017 (59%) and who said the same about Obama in January 2010 (55%). Both presidents’ parties suffered significant losses in Congress in the midterm elections held during the second year of their time in office.”

The poll also found that Republicans are currently more enthusiastic about voting than Democrats, which could hurt Democrats’ chances in the midterms.
