According to a recent poll from Politico/Morning Consult, numerous Americans are giving President Biden an “F” for his first year as president. Moreover, 51 percent of poll respondents indicated that Biden is not capable of leading the nation effectively.
In total, approximately 37 percent of poll participants graded the Biden administration as “F,” contrasting sharply with 31 percent who provided him with either an “A” or a “B” for last year’s performance.
In addition, 12 percent of respondents gave Biden a “D,” while 18 percent of respondents gave Biden a “C.”
In total, only 2 percent of respondents did not provide any grade for Biden.
Moreover, Politico also noted that Biden concluded his first year in office with his lowest rating of approval for the year: 40 percent. On the other hand, 56 percent of Americans indicated disapproval of his job performance.
The grades for Biden were unsurprisingly partisan, with well over 85 percent of Republican respondents delegating either a “D” or “F” to Biden for performance. Even more troublingly for Democrats, roughly 50 percent of politically independent respondents provided similarly failing grades to the Biden administration.
Only 5 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of independents provided Biden with either an “A” or a “B” rating.
However, Democrats proved to be more magnanimous towards the Biden administration, with only 11 percent giving Biden a “D” or “F” grade.
Nonetheless, approximately 25 percent of Democrats provided Biden with a “C,” which is similar to the response from independents.
Any differences between women’s and men’s responses in terms of letter grades were not statistically significant, with party affiliation proving to be the greater statistical predictor.
Regarding specific issues, Biden fared the most poorly, with 75 percent of Republicans and 40 percent of all respondents giving the president an “F” on restoring unity to the nation.
In addition, Biden also fared quite poorly on issues regarding national debt and immigration, according to Politico.
The poll took place from January 15-16, and a total of 2,005 registered voters were selected. The overall margin of error for the poll is plus/minus 2 percentage points.
