A recently released Wall Street Journal survey shows President Joe Biden is failing to win over Americans with his economic record.
In a survey conducted between August 24 and 30, 2013, 37% of respondents said they approved of Biden’s performance on the economy. A majority of the same group, 59 percent, indicated they disapproved of Biden’s handling of the economy.
The president has defended his economic record in the face of criticism. He made this claim on Friday in light of the August employment statistics, claiming it one of the most robust job-creating phases in history.
Voters also had a negative view of the president’s handling of inflation and increasing expenses, the survey showed. Sixty-three percent of respondents indicated they strongly disagreed with Biden’s approach to inflation and rising prices.
It was not a good day for Joe Biden, according to the co-hosts of “The View,” who were concerned by the newest survey showing the president’s dismal support rating on Thursday.
A recent CNN survey indicated that Biden’s overall approval rating was 39%, which co-host Joy Behar mentioned to kick off the discussion. She deemed that a bad idea.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, a co-host on the show, questioned why Democrats weren’t paying attention to their base. Some 67% of Democrats surveyed expressed interest in a non-Biden ticket.
Griffin said there’s a lot at risk in this race, and she was surprised the Democrat Party isn’t heeding its base.
According to the CNN survey published last Thursday, 66 percent of Democrat voters and those who lean Democrat believe President Biden should not be nominated for a second term.
About half of those who identified as Democrats said they would be most concerned about Biden’s age if he ran for president in 2024.
Respondents were equally concerned about Biden’s mental competence, senility, sharpness, health, effectiveness, and ability to manage the job. Each received 7% of the vote.
Over half of Democrat supporters are worried that Biden’s advanced age may impair his mental and physical abilities.
