This last year has been one of the more trying periods in American history. We’ve struggled not only with the constant and oppressive coronavirus pandemic, but we’ve also been forced to come to the realization that there are still three years left of this Joe Biden administration.
It’s enough to make even the most optimistic Americans begin to feel a little bit disheartened.
Or, as the latest polling shows, a lot disheartened.
Seventy-two percent of Americans say the nation is headed in the wrong direction, a Sunday NBC News poll revealed.
As rising inflation, coronavirus chaos, supply chain woes, and foreign policy blunders have impacted Americans throughout 2021 and into 2022, 72 percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track, up one point from October’s NBC News poll.
Only six times have 70 percent or more of Americans believed the nation is headed in the wrong direction in consecutive surveys.
And it gets worse.
The polling also revealed both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s approval ratings remain in the 30s. Biden: 39-48 percent. Harris: 32-49 percent.
According to the poll, the economy and jobs are the most important crisis facing the country (42 percent), with coronavirus (29 percent), election integrity (25 percent), and border security (22 percent) subsequently ranked.
The news comes as Biden continues to inexplicably suggest that he and VP Kamala Harris will again be the Democratic nominees in 2024, despite other polling that clearly indicates the Democratic Party’s desire to move past the disastrous duo.
