(Big League Politics) – President Joe Biden’s approval rating continues taking a nosedive per a recent NPR/PBS News Hour/Marist poll released on December 20, 2021.
When asked whether they approved or disapproved of the Biden administration’s management of the country, 55% of respondents indicated that they disapproved, whereas only 41% said they approved, per the poll.
Between December 11 and December 13, the survey was conducted among 1,400 adults. The poll had a four-point margin of error.
When the poll was dissected along partisan lines, 87% of Democrats stated that they approved of Biden’s stewardship of the country, whereas only 11% disapproved. 2% were unsure. Among Republicans, only 4% approved of Biden while 95% were in disapproval.
When independents were polled, 66% indicated that they disapproved of Biden’s leadership while only 29% approved.
Among white respondents, 40% said they approve of Biden, while 56% said they were in disapproval. For non-whites, 44% of them were in approval while 52% disapproved of Biden’s performance.
Among Hispanics, a group that Biden has struggled with, 33% approved of Biden’s performance. A staggering 65% disapprove of Biden.
Overall, the Biden administration is underwater, which means that the 2022 midterms will be an easy win for Republicans. Nevertheless, Republicans must think ahead. To consolidate their power and build a majority coalition for decades to come, they need to follow through with their campaign promises and pass legislation when they have firm control of all three branches of government.
