Präsident Bidens Zustimmungsrate

By Duncan Mil

January 19, 2022 - Während das erste Jahr der Präsidentschaft von Präsident Joe Biden zu Ende geht, sind die Amerikaner immer frustrierter über die Art, wie er Pandemie und Wirtschaft handhabt. Die tägliche Umfrage von Five Thirty Eight ergibt, dass er von 42,3 Prozent der US Wähler Zustimmung für seine Leistung erhält, aber 52,4 Prozent dagegen sind.

Biden’s approval rating was constantly in the 50s until August. It flipped from positive to negative with the Taliban victory in Afghanistan and disorderly withdrawal of U.S. troops.

In the 2020 presidential election, Biden won more votes than any presidential candidate in U.S. history -- 81 million compared with Barack Obama’s previous record of 69.5 million in 2008. Yet, just 12 months into his term, he is one of the country’s most unpopular presidents.

The U.S. economy ended 2021 in solid shape, with GDP growth of 7.6 per cent in the final quarter of the year, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The jobless rate, 6.3 per cent when Biden took office, was just 3.9 per cent in December, with around six million jobs added since Biden took office. Under President Donald Trump, the U.S. lost three million jobs.

Biden’s troubles started with his botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the deaths of 13 U.S. service members at Kabul airport.

Faced with a surge of the Delta and Omicron variants of coronavirus, Biden concedes that eradicating the virus is unlikely.

And finally, on January 13, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the president’s rule requiring workers at large companies to be vaccinated or masked and tested weekly.
