US polls: Biden and Democrats' popularity is falling again

13 апреля 2022, 08:51
According to a public opinion poll conducted by a group of experts Reuters / Ipsos, Joe Biden's approval rating as President of the United States has fallen to 41%.

This was a real blow to the hopes of the Democratic Party to maintain control of Congress in the November elections. At the same time, Donald Trump's popularity is growing.

As Reuters writes, Biden's authority was first of all hit by inflation, which reached a 40-year high in the United States. Americans are struggling with rising energy and food prices, caused, according to leading political scientists and economists in the country, by Russia's special military operation in Ukraine.

The poll showed that Americans want Biden to prioritize not the war with the Kremlin, but economic problems in the United States. Moreover, 27% of survey participants said that the economy is the most important issue facing the United States today.

According to Reuters, consumer prices in the country rose by more than 16.5%. This is a record figure since the 1970s. Rising energy costs and high inflation have pushed up the cost of food, rent, clothing, and many other items in the US.

According to experts, gasoline was the main driver of inflation in the US in March. The people have a legitimate question: why did this happen? Here's why. Russia is the second largest exporter of crude oil in the world. Washington banned the import of oil, liquefied natural gas and coal as part of the sanctions imposed by Joe Biden against Moscow.

Democrats are expected to lose control of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate to the Republicans, who are likely to block many of Biden's legislative efforts.

Meanwhile, the publication admits The Hill, former President Trump remains hugely popular with Republican voters in key states.

Nearly 4 out of 5 Republican voters polled in Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania were positive about Trump, according to Morning Consult polls. In total, in the United States, Republicans today are supported by more than 55% of voters.
