Joe Biden’s political standing is collapsing fast.
With poll after poll showing his approval rating is crumbling, Biden cannot afford any more bad news.
But now, the latest Gallup poll about the state of the union just dealt a crippling blow to Biden’s agenda.
If the polls are to be believed, Joe Biden has managed to oversee one of the most unpopular presidencies in American history.
With Biden having already crossed the halfway mark of his term in office, his approval rating remains near rock-bottom lows.
And with Biden having found himself in the middle of a massive classified documents scandal which has hurt his image in the eyes of voters even more, it appears that Biden will enter the 2024 election cycle as a deeply unpopular incumbent.
But poor personal approval ratings and a collapse in the public’s trust aren’t the only challenges that Joe Biden is currently facing.
Perhaps the biggest concern that Biden has is the fact that the American people remain deeply unsatisfied with the direction of the country.
And now, a new Gallup poll shows just how unhappy the vast majority of Americans are under Biden’s rule.
Gallup reports, “Americans’ assessment of the state of the nation remains in the pandemic-era slump seen since 2021, marked by subdued satisfaction with 30 different aspects of the country. These include the public’s reaction to several aspects of U.S. society generally, as well as to numerous specific issues facing the country.
“These findings from Gallup’s Jan. 2-22 Mood of the Nation poll come as only 23% of Americans are broadly satisfied with the way things are going in the country, while the rest are dissatisfied, including nearly half ‘very dissatisfied.’”
The results outlined in this poll are politically devastating for Joe Biden.
With just 23% of Americans satisfied with the direction of the country, Joe Biden is currently on track to post some of the worst numbers in the history of modern American polling.
And that’s not all.
This same poll also revealed that large majorities of Americans are also upset at the size and scope of the very federal government that Joe Biden leads.
According to Gallup’s own numbers, just 33% of Americans are satisfied by “the size and power of the federal government,” while a paltry 20% approve of the country’s “moral and ethical climate.”
What’s more, just 29% of Independents were satisfied with the size and power of the federal government, while a mere 22% approved of the nation’s moral and ethical climate.
Politically, the results of this survey are nothing short of a catastrophe for Joe Biden.
With so many Americans disillusioned with the direction of the country, Joe Biden remains in a very difficult position as the sitting president.
History has shown that when enough people become upset at the direction of the nation, incumbent politicians tend to face strong political pushback as a result.
As a result, Joe Biden begins the 2024 election cycle off as one of the weakest presidents in history, and likely appears poised to lose re-election if he can even manage to win the Democratic nomination in the first place.
