Vast numbers of Americans say Joe Biden’s term in the White House has been a failure.
A report in the Hill explains a new Washington Post-ABC poll reveals 62% of respondents said Biden has “not achieved much” in office.
Democrats keep insisting, the report said, that his time has been “the most productive in Washington since Lyndon Baines Johnson’s ‘Great Society’ agenda.”
Voters are not buying that sales pitch.

Those who believe Biden has accomplished a “good amount” or “great deal” amounted to only 36%.
The report explained the support for Biden was almost entirely partisan.
“Seventy-seven percent of Democrats said Biden has accomplished a great deal or a good amount while 32 percent of independents said so and only 7 percent of Republicans did,” the report said.
Among Republicans, 93% see Biden as doing “not much” or “little or nothing.” Sixty-six percent of independents agreed, as well as even 22% of the president’s party.
The report noted Biden is expected to try to “change the narrative” at this week’s State of the Union. But it also noted the “challenge” for Biden when he tries to sell his presidency to voters.
He’ll also probably use his bully pulpit to try to pressure Republicans to give him unlimited spending power by raising the nation’s debt ceiling. The poll found 65% of respondents think debt and spending should be addressed separately, but 26% said they must be linked.
The Hill reported, “People gave Biden and Democrats little credit for two of their biggest accomplishments in the last Congress, the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Inflation Reduction Act, which included prescription drug reform.”
Six of 10 reported that Biden hadn’t made much progress improving roads and bridges and 47% said he’d failed to make “much of a dent in prescription drug prices.”
The poll revealed similar negative perceptions of Biden’s work on other problems, as only 34% said he’d made progress in creating good jobs and 26% said he’d made electric vehicles more affordable.
Only one in three said they have a great deal or good amount of confidence in Biden’s ability to make wise decisions.
