Conflicting Polls: Biden up, Biden down depending upon who you believe

Biden Caravan
Joe Biden is not doing well in two out of three polls released Tuesday.

Joe Biden is doing well in a new public opinion survey released Tuesday by the American Research Group, with 50 percent of Americans approving of the way the president is doing his job.

But, not so fast, because the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday has Biden continuing his downward slide with 44 percent of likely voters approving of his job performance, while 56 percent disapprove.

To reinforce the president’s drooping popularity, Rasmussen’s separate survey on the direction of the country found only 32 percent of likely voters saying the nation is going in the right direction. At the same time 62 percent say the country is headed down the wrong road, up one point from a week ago.

Perhaps adding to Biden’s unpopularity, only 25 percent strongly approve of his job performance, but 45 percent strongly disapprove. Overall, he’s got a -20 on the Presidential Approval Index.

Back to the American Research Group survey, of the 50 percent who approve of his job performance, 86 percent expect the economy to be better one year from now. However, of the 46 percent who disapprove of Biden’s performance, an ominous 93 percent expect the economy to be worse by September 2022.

“On Biden’s handling of the economy,” the American Research survey noted, “52% of registered voters approve and 43% disapprove. And on Biden’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, 59% of registered voters approve and 37% disapprove.”

So, how is it Biden can score comfortably on one survey while doing so poorly on another? Maybe this is just a difference of opinion from two different ends of the spectrum. Or maybe not.

Another poll released Tuesday by the Des Moines Register and Mediacom Iowa shows Biden with a 31 percent approval rating and a 62 percent disapproval rating, according to Fox News. This survey was of residents in the important swing state, and for the president and his party, it’s not good. In June, his numbers were 43 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove, so his unpopularity has climbed.

The poll results come on the same day Biden addressed the United Nations. In the aftermath of that appearance, James Carafano, vice president of foreign and defense policy studies at the Heritage Foundation, wrote at Fox News, “What Biden’s speech lacked was context on how America is actually leading. Among the more shocking statements, in the wake of his catastrophe in Afghanistan, was his declaration that America “stands up for allies and friends.” Coming right after his administration abandoned 38 million Afghans to the mercies of the radical Taliban — who have already started beheading children and torturing journalists – this was borderline laughable.”

Biden is only eight months into his term, leaving observers to wonder what’s next, and how bad can it get?
