Biden Gets Bad News with New National Poll
Despite having received over 80 million votes in November, President Joe Biden appears to be off to a relatively weak start. According to a Quinnipiac University poll that surveyed Americans between Jan. 28 and Feb. 1, Biden’s approval rating is just 49 percent — well below the majority approval that newly elected presidents typically receive. “The Biden numbers are solid but not spectacular as the country tries to coalesce around a new administration that faces the dual challenge of daunting economic struggles and comforting a COVID-weary public,” Quinnipiac policy analyst Tim Malloy said. The telephone survey of 1,075 adults had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
