“President Biden’s approval rating has taken a dip in recent weeks — but it’s not even close to the drop in support for Congress’s performance, as negotiations over legislation in Washington have ground to a virtual standstill,” the New York Times reports.
“Back in April, when Mr. Biden was making big legislative strides, 83% of Democrats said they thought the country was moving in the right direction, according to a Monmouth survey at the time. But in Wednesday’s poll, just 59% of Democrats said that.”
Said Bob Shrum: “People are anxious — and look, Biden had such success at the outset with the Covid relief package that it probably got people’s expectations up very high about how much could be done and how soon. Now reality is intruding.”Save to Favorites
