More than 50 percent of Americans disapprove of President Biden’s job performance and 71 percent believe the nation is headed in the wrong direction, according to an NBC News poll released on Sunday.
Reporting over the latest poll numbers, host Chuck Todd told viewers during an airing on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, “We have a brand new NBC News poll that’s filled with some scary news for the Democrats. The over arching message: Americans have lost their confidence in President Biden and their optimism for the country.”
“Just 22% of adults say we’re headed in the right direction. A shocking 71% say we’re on the wrong track, and that includes a near-majority of Democrats who are saying that,” Chuck Todd reported.
Todd said that Biden’s job performance stands at a “dismal 42% percent, verses 54% who disapprove”.
“So what’s pulling down his numbers? Well, look at this set of numbers: Just 37% say he has the ability right now to handle a crisis, verses the majority who say he does not. 37% also say he is competent and effective as president. 50% disagree with that description,” Todd said.
The NBC News poll also finds that Republicans have “double digit leads” in “dealing with border security, inflation, crime, national security, the economy, and on ‘getting things done'”. Video Below
