Joe Biden is a critic of President Trump, and has been vocal about his disapproval. His popularity took a sudden hit recently as polls show Joe’s support among Democrats declines rapidly.
President Joe Biden of the United States has dismissed surveys showing a substantial drop in popular support for his government. When questioned about the polls during a news conference on January 19, Biden simply said, “I don’t trust the polls.”
He addressed to the press about the Coronavirus outbreak, inflation, and the US exit from Afghanistan, all of which are harming his popularity.
According to a Gallup poll released on January 18, around 40% of Americans approved of Biden’s performance. According to Gallup, Biden’s approval rating at the start of his administration was 57 percent.
According to a study conducted by POLITICO and Morning Consult, 31% of Americans would give Biden a “A” or “B” for his first term, while 37% would give him a “F.” On January 19, the results of a survey with 2,005 participants were released.
Biden’s poor popularity ratings might be due to three factors, according to The Hill:
- COVID-19 instances are on the rise;
- The tumultuous aftermath of Vice President Joe Biden’s decision to remove American troops out of Afghanistan.
At the press conference, Biden addressed these issues. He said that the Omicron COVID-19 variation had generated “frustration and tiredness” among the general populace. But, he continued, progress was being made. He remarked, “We’ve gone from 90 million individuals without injections in arms last summer to 35 million adults without vaccinations now.”
Americans may now request free COVID testing at home, according to the President. According to him, there were additional 20,000 sites giving free COVID testing in person. “Lockdowns will not be reinstated. We are not returning to the practice of shutting schools “Biden said the following.
Boosting the economy
“A lot of economic issues, including quick price hikes throughout the international economy,” he remarked of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The President said that he has been working on a strategy to build “a more productive economy with more ability to supply products and services.” He noted that the strategy was divided into three sections:
- The supply chain is being restored. The President claimed that his administration avoided “a major catastrophe over the holidays” through working with companies and organized labor. He said that scarcity claims in the press had been overblown. “On television, I often see empty shelves. Eighty-nine percent of the houses are occupied, which is just a few percentage points lower than before the epidemic “Biden said the following.
- Build Back Better is helping families save money. If Congress approves the President’s Build Back Better proposal, it would reduce the cost of daycare, eldercare, and prescription medicines, easing the burden on family finances. He claims that affordable daycare would allow many women to re-enter the workforce, benefitting the economy.
- Competition is encouraged. “A few of huge businesses dominate the market in too many areas,” Biden remarked. “This has diminished competition,” he continued, “squeezed out small firms, farmers, and ranchers, and raised consumer prices.” The President said that an executive order had already been issued “to address unfair competition in our economy.”
There will be no apologies for leaving Afghanistan.
Biden said that he has no regrets about removing American troops from Afghanistan.
“After 20 years in Afghanistan, there was no easy route out…. And I make no apologies for what I did.” He said that if Americans had remained longer, they would only have succeeded in “sending more corpse bags back home.”
‘I didn’t make any promises I couldn’t keep.’
Biden was questioned whether he had made too many promises during his first year in office. “Look, I didn’t overpromise, but I definitely beat everyone’s expectations,” he stated. Biden recognized that the number of COVID-19-related fatalities was significant, but claimed it was decreasing. The President expressed his disappointment that he had been unable to convince Republicans to cease their obstructionism. “I didn’t expect such a determined effort to ensure that the most important thing was that President Biden didn’t do anything,” he remarked.
Unlike Bernie Sanders, I am not a member of the Democratic Party.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy pressed Biden on why his administration was attempting to “drag the nation so far to the left.” Biden said that he was a “mainstream” Democratic Party member. He said he didn’t propose costly initiatives until he had figured out how to pay for them.
Doocy and his colleagues, according to Biden “They’ve been attempting to persuade me that I’m Bernie Sanders. I’m not one of them. Although I like him, I am not Bernie Sanders. I’m not a socialist in the least.” He said that all but two of the 50 Democrats in the United States Senate had continuously backed his ideas.
