A study found about a quarter of Americans think highly of the president’s handling of Eastern Europe’s largest armed conflict since World War II.
The latest NBC News poll found a whopping 72% of respondents have weak confidence in Joe Biden’s ability to deescalate Russia-Ukraine border tensions.
When asked how much confidence the sample audience of 1,000 voters had in Biden’s crisis management, 44% reported very little confidence and 27% some confidence. Only 12% had a great deal of confidence while 16% had quite a bit of confidence. One percent was unsure.
The poll was jointly conducted by Hart Research Associates and Public Opinion Strategies. It found 83% of voters were concerned about the rising cost of gasoline and other goods and services. Eleven percent were not too concerned, 5% not at all concerned, and 1% was unsure.
Despite this cost-conscious sentiment 79% of voters still agree with Biden’s ban on Russian oil that arguably caused gas prices to soar. Only 17% disagreed while 4% was unsure.
Overall 55% of respondents disapproved of the Democrat’s performance in the Oval Office. In comparison just 40% approved, representing the “lowest mark of his presidency” according to NBC News. The approval rate was previously 43% back in January 2022.
“What this poll says is that President Biden and Democrats are headed for a catastrophic election,” Public Opinions Strategy co-founding partner Bill McInturff said according to the broadcaster.
The poll was conducted between March 18 and 22. It reported a maximum error margin of plus or minus 3.49 percentage points.
