The liberal mainstream media has been forced to admit that Joe Biden is unpopular with Americans. According to a new NBC News poll, Biden’s overall approval rating has declined to just 40 percent. The same survey also found that a staggering 63 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy.
This likely comes as no surprise for many, thanks to the rapidly rising prices of goods and fuel. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in early March that inflation had soared to an all-time 40-year high, with the consumer index price skyrocketing 7.89 percent.
Biden’s falling popularity among his supporters is also due to the escalating tensions of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. According to the NBC News poll, eight out of ten Americans are worried that the war in Eastern Europe will continue to increase gas prices and possibly result in a nuclear conflict.
In January, RSBN reported that Biden’s approval rating had taken a severe nosedive, with approval dropping to just 33 percent from Quinnipiac, indicating that Biden’s popularity has been taking a beating for quite some time.
That same poll also found that 53 percent of Americans disapproved of the Biden administration, mainly due to a total collapse of support from Independent voters, who disapproved of Biden’s performance by a staggering 61 percent, the Quinnipiac poll reported.
Interestingly, even the NBC News survey admitted that Biden’s approval is looking bleak, reporting that 55 percent of Americans overall disapprove of his job in the White House. Nearly half of Americans (44 percent) have very little confidence in Biden’s ability to properly manage the Ukraine crisis. Almost comically, only 12 percent of those polled said they had a “great deal” of confidence in Biden’s ability to respond to the war in Ukraine and manage the conflict.
With liberal media outlets forced to admit that Biden’s approval ratings with the American people are circling the drain, it’s hard to imagine that his numbers could get any worse – but there is a good chance they will as the economy continues to erode and the crisis in Eastern Europe continues to escalate.
