Biden’s approval rating has taken a hit.
According to a new Marist Polling survey, President Biden’s approval rating fell shortly after his State of the Union address bump; it dropped four points in March to 42%, falling from 46% in a February poll.
Americans’ biggest concern? Crime —68% believe crims is a “real threat in most communities.”
From Fox News:
The poll highlights how crime is not a partisan issue among voters, with 58% of Democrat respondents viewing it as a threat, while 80% of Republicans believe it is an issue, and 69% of independents are also worried about crime in their communities.
While the majority of respondents view crime as a serious issue, just 31% think it is blown out of proportion. According to the poll, 50% of all voters disapprove of Biden’s handling of crime.
Recent studies revealed an uptick in crime over the past few years, with homicides increasing in Portland by 236% since 2019, in Chicago by 41%, and Philadelphia by 45%, according to the Major Cities Chiefs Association’s 2022 crime report.
Chicago just gave Mayor Lori LIghtfoot the boot because she couldn’t bring crime to heel —will America do the same to Joe Biden come November 2024?
