Currently, 52% of national voters say they disapprove of President Biden's job performance.
Just 43% say they approve, and 5% say they are not sure.
That's according to the latest poll from scottrasmussen.com
Some political experts are suggesting with the approval of Biden's "Build Back Better Act," which includes a lot of climate change measures, the president's ratings could improve. However, recent data seems to suggest otherwise.
While Washington D.C. has been consumed with the President's legislative agenda, research indicates many voters have been disengaged and tuned out.
There is some confusion as to what "Build Back Better" refers to. Generally, it is a broad Biden Administration legislative agenda that includes, among other things, an infrastructure bill that has already passed Congress, and a "Build Back Better" Act that has not yet passed and is heavily focused on climate change initiatives.
There is ongoing scientific disagreement and debate over climate change and whether, if it includes damaging global warming, much or any of it is man-influenced.
According to polls, only 43% of voters know that the Infrastructure part of the Biden agenda passed, while only 36% know that the "Build Back Better Act" has not yet been passed by Congress.
A few of the unpopular provisions, according to polling, in the Build Back Better agenda include:
- Paying illegal immigrants: just 28% support these payments
- Giving the IRS more access to personal and business financial information: 73% oppose these measures
- Promoting the quick transition to electric vehicles: just 26% of voters agree
- Expanding eligibility for federal benefits: 55% of voters disagree
Other unpopular provisions, according to polls, include reducing the ability of faith-based organizations to provide daycare services, and providing federal funding for abortions.
Overall 56% of those polled believe the president’s Build Back Better plan will make things worse by increasing inflation, which is already at a 30-year high.
