A new poll found that months into Joe Bidens’ presidency, Americans’ optimism regarding the direction of the country has dropped nearly 20 points ABC News reported.

“A majority — 55% — of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2,” reported ABC News.

 

Optimism Craters

“In the early May survey, Americans were more optimistic than pessimistic by a 28-percentage point margin,” ABC News noted.

The report continued, “Optimism is now under water by 10 points. Looking ahead to the next 12 months, fewer than half — 45% — now report feeling optimistic about the way things are going, a significant drop from about two-thirds (64%) in the May poll.”

This decrease in optimism isn’t just among Republicans, either.

“Optimism is down about 20 points among Democrats and Republicans and down 26 points among independents,” the news outlet reported. “Among Democrats, about 7 in 10 (71%) now say they are optimistic about the direction of the country over the next 12 months.”

On Friday, Breitbart News reported that a Gallup poll recently showed that Biden’s approval rating was at the lowest point of his presidency, though he’s still above water.

“The poll, taken from July 6-21 shows that Biden has a 50 percent approval rating, down six points from a 56 percent rating in June,” Breitbart News noted.

Problems For President Biden

“Biden now faces questions about his policies as Americans are experiencing growing inflation,” the outlet reported.

“The country also faces growing fears about the delta variant of the coronavirus spreading across the country, even infecting vaccinated Americans,” Breitbart News observed.

“The president also has yet to deliver on a bipartisan infrastructure deal, as negotiations between Republicans and Democrats continue in the Senate,” the story continued. “Other issues of concern include the growing number of migrants crossing uninhibited across the Southern border.”
