(RightIsRight.co) – There is one thing that the vast majority of Americans agree on these days, whether they happen to be Republicans, Democrats, or independents, according to a new public opinion poll – and that is the fact that both the United States as a nation and the US economy are increasingly on the wrong track on President Joe Biden’s watch.
A whopping 85% of Americans agree that the country is going in the wrong direction. Meanwhile, 79% say that the economy is doing poorly and in big trouble, according to the results of a new survey by The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
The poll is the latest in a string of recent surveys that have found Biden’s ratings sliding. At the same time, many Americans, including Democrat voters, are discontent with his administration’s policies.
Thus, almost 80% of the Democratic Party’s electorate — along with practically every Republican-minded voter — believe Biden has the nation going entirely down the wrong track.
The 79% of Americans who say the economy is deteriorating include 67% of leftist voters.
A total of 69% of US adults disapprove of how the president has handled the economy, including 43% of the Democrat voters.
Only 14% of those polled said that America is going in the right direction under Biden’s leadership.
That number demonstrates a steady decline on that count, down from 21% in May and 29% in April, according to identical monthly surveys by the same pollster.
The same poll discovered that 60% of Americans disapprove of the overall leadership of the Democrat President, while only 39% approve of his performance on the job so far.
The survey results are in line with polls from last month, which showed Biden’s approval ratings down to 39% and staying there. However, it should be noted that most pollsters such as AP-NORC have a left-wing bias, meaning that the president’s actual public approval may be even lower.
The AP-NORC poll was conducted between June 23 and June 27 among 1,053 American adults and had a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
It comes after consumer price inflation spiked by 8.6% in May, the highest increase in 41 years since 1981, including a 48.7% increase in gas prices and almost 40% in airfare.
