Biden’s Failing Report: 37% of Voters Rate President’s Performance in First Year a F

Bidens Failing Report 37 of Voters Rate Presidents Performance in

Biden’s freshman report is strikingly similar to Trump’s, who failed 35% of voters after his first year in office

If bad grades are a sign of being ill-prepared, President Joe Biden should be hitting the books, as a devastating new poll showed that more than a third of American voters rate his first year in the White House with an “F.”

The research was conducted by Politico en Morning consultation and released on Wednesday, a day before the first anniversary of Biden’s inauguration.

Asked to give the president a report for his first year running the country, the majority of respondents — 37 percent — swung to him.

Twenty percent gave Biden a ‘B’ and 18 percent gave him a ‘C’. The smallest proportion of those surveyed, 11 percent, gave him the highest marks.

In another blow, 52 percent of Americans polled say they see Biden as a “weak leader.”

A year of crises – including record numbers of migrants straining local infrastructure on the southern border, an increasingly aggressive Russia and spiraling inflation that has hit a 40-year high – have led the 79-year-old – the image of the longtime president despite coming to power and promises to restore the United States’ place in the world and heal political divisions.

These are topics that Biden will likely have to answer later this afternoon during his much-anticipated 4 p.m. press conference.

Forty-four percent of voters also believe Biden is poorly handling the coronavirus pandemic, with cases skyrocketing and the Omicron variant forcing nationwide staff shortages, despite a campaign promise to “shut down” the virus.

And despite marketing himself as the antithesis of Republican rival Donald Trump, their year-end reports are strikingly similar.

After his first year in office, 35 percent of voters rated Trump an “F” — slightly less than Biden’s share failed to hit.

Trump also achieved a higher concentration of ‘A’ and ‘B’ marks compared to Biden, while their ‘D’ marks were much the same.

Wednesday’s new poll also shows that Americans are increasingly concerned that the president may not be able to perform his daily duties, a year after becoming the oldest sworn person.

On multiple survey questions, more than 50 percent of voters said they do not consider Biden energetic, clear communicator, or in good health.

More than a third have expressed concern that he is not mentally fit or stable.

Perhaps even more devastating is how many people question whether Biden is keeping his word, despite years of building a candid and honest image with the public.

Fifty-three percent of respondents strongly or somewhat disagree that Biden keeps his promises.

Half of those polled say they believe Biden doesn’t care about them, compared with 41 percent who agreed when asked if he “cares about people like me.”

Biden's unpopularity threatens to sink his party along with him, with the 2022 midterm elections less than a year away

Those low polls, which last for most of the year, appear to be ripping through the Democratic Party with months until the midterm elections that decide who will be in control of Congress during the final two years of Biden’s first term in office.

When asked whether the president “encourages the more extreme elements in the Democratic Party,” 42 percent of voters somewhat or strongly agreed, while 37 percent said no.

It’s not clear whether Biden’s push to the left will completely alienate voters. So far, a hypothetical November match-up shows that Democrats and Republicans are almost on par with the GOP that just tops it off.

If the midterm elections were held today, a GOP candidate would receive 42 percent of the vote, while a Democratic candidate scores 41 percentage points, according to Politico’s poll.

People surveyed also said they trust Republicans more than Democrats to make laws on topics such as gun policy, economics, jobs, national security and immigration.

Democrats were favored to tackle issues such as education, climate change, energy and voting rights, among others.
