(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Joe Biden’s approval ratings went down to the low twenties among young Americans and Hispanic voters, according to the Wednesday poll by Quinnipiac University.
The survey showed that the overall rating of Biden’s job performance went down to 33%. Even one of the most important demographics for Democrats — young people and racial minorities — negatively evaluate his performance.
It was found that only 22% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 that were surveyed approved of Biden’s actions — the lowest rating of any age group. When it comes to racial minorities, only 24% of Hispanic and 49% of black voters think Biden is doing a good job.
Even though Biden said in one of his speeches that he got 81 million votes in 2020, his rating went down after seven months when he stepped into the office due to the disaster in Afghanistan and remained in low numbers because of the rising inflation and violent crime.
According to the poll, 64% of respondents said that they don’t approve of how Biden handles the economy and 34% said that inflation is the most important problem that Americans face right now.
“Annual inflation was above 8% in March and April, which critics blame on Biden’s policies,” The New York Post reported.
47% approved Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and 46% didn’t.
When it comes to the Russia-Ukraine war, 42% of surveyed Americans agreed with how Biden handles the situation and 50% disagreed.
Biden recently lashed out at reporters for not providing positive coverage of his actions, according to a Wednesday Politico report.
However, Biden didn’t do anything to fix this issue, like giving interviews to show his perspective, as Donald Trump did, Post reports.
The last time Joe Biden had an on-record sit-down interview with a journalist was on Feb. 10 with Lester Holt from NBC.
Peter Baker, a White House correspondent for the New York Times, shared his opinion with Politico.
“It’s the fifth president I’ve covered and the first one I haven’t interviewed,” Baker said. “[Biden] talks about defending democracy and that’s part of democracy too – answering questions from people not on your side.”
