According to a recent CBS News/YouGov poll, the majority of Americans don’t feel too confident with Joe Biden in the Oval Office. In fact, many say the economy is bad, Biden is “slow to react,” and the state of the country is “uneasy” and “worrying.”
From The Daily Wire…
CBS asked respondents to state whether or not certain words would “describe” or “not describe” Biden’s “actions as President so far.” While 53% of Americans said that the term “divisive” does not describe the president’s actions, 62% of Americans also said that the word “unifying” would not be an accurate description either.
Likewise, 62% of Americans said the word “effective” does not apply, while 57% of Americans said the word “distracted” describes Biden’s actions.
According to the poll, most respondents don’t believe that the president is all that interested in the problems facing them, either. When asked, “How much do you think Joe Biden cares about the needs and problems of people like you,” 56% of respondents said “not much” or “not at all.”
On Sunday, The Daily Wire reported that the same CBS poll that found 65% of Americans believe Biden has been “slow to react” to multiple crises like inflation, illegal immigration, soaring gas prices, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain tried to spin the numbers, citing that the President’s approval was ticking up.
“I hate to spoil the narrative but this poll shows @potus approval rating moving up, and solid public confidence on the two biggest problems he inherited: COVID and jobs.”

While POTUS’ approval may have gone from terrible to slightly-less terrible, he’s approval is still underwater at 44%.
