Less than a week before President Joe Biden is supposed to give his State of the Union address to Congress, the number of voters satisfied with the state of the union is lower than it has been in nearly a decade, according to a recent poll.
68% of respondents are dissatisfied with how the United States is going, while only 31% are satisfied, which is the lowest number who have felt that way in almost a decade.
The poll showed that the last time respondents gave this low a satisfaction rating was in October 2013. At the time, 73% said they were dissatisfied with how the country was going, and only 26% said they were satisfied.
Since being in office, Biden also received his lowest approval rating from a Fox News poll. In June of 2021, there were 56% who approved of Biden and 43% who disapproved.
Since then, the percentages have been completely reversed. Only 43% of the respondents said they approved of Biden, while 56% disapproved.
Biden has gone through a year of bad policies and very few political wins. The majority of Biden’s legislative agenda was stuck in the Senate after barely being passed by the House due to a Democrat party divided between the radical and “moderate” factions.
