(FiveNation.com)- According to a Gallup survey conducted from February 1-17, only 21 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going while a staggering 78 percent are dissatisfied.
Believe it or not, that’s an improvement of Gallup’s January survey which showed only 17 percent were satisfied.
Under Joe Biden’s presidency, the highest number Gallup recorded was in May 2021 when 36 percent of Americans were satisfied with the direction of the country.
The USA Today/Suffolk poll released this week is no better.
Asked if they feel the country is headed in the right direction, only 21.9 percent said it was while 65 percent said we’re heading in the wrong direction.
Overall, Joe Biden’s approval rating in the USA Today/Suffolk poll sat at a pathetic 39 percent with 57 percent disapproving, putting Biden 18 points underwater.
Biden’s approval rating on handling the economy is even worse, with only 35.5 percent approving of the job he’s done.
When asked about Biden’s handling of the current situation in Ukraine, the USA Today/Suffolk poll found only 34.4 percent approve while 48.7 percent disapprove.
On Biden’s overall leadership abilities, the USA Today survey was bad news for Joe. Only 32.3 percent of respondents say Joe Biden is a strong leader, while 62.9 percent say he isn’t.
The Washington Post/ABC News poll released over the weekend showed that 75 percent of respondents rate the economy negatively. What’s more, 54 percent believe the economy has gotten worse under Joe Biden, while only 17 percent believe things have gotten better.
No matter how you look at it, the American people are deeply pessimistic about the current state of the union.
So having President Biden stand before Congress Tuesday night and present a shiny, happy picture during his State of the Union address no doubt came as a shock to all but about 20 percent of the country.
