(GALLUP) Public dissatisfaction rising under Biden administration

The following is from Gallup News.

As President Joe Biden prepares to deliver his State of the Union address to Congress, Americans are feeling less content with numerous aspects of the country than they were when he took office three years ago.

Of 29 aspects of the country Gallup has tracked during Biden’s presidency, public satisfaction has declined in 12, while it has been steady in 12 and improved in five.

As a result, in a reversal of the pattern seen before 2021, anemic (sub-33%) public satisfaction ratings of national conditions now outnumber strong (50%+) ones, and by a substantial margin.

Military and Immigration Among Largest Declines

Since January 2021, public satisfaction has fallen most sharply with the nation’s military strength and preparedness, the immigration level, the nation’s energy policies, and its laws or policies on guns. All four readings are at or near their record lows, with only satisfaction with the military (62% very or somewhat satisfied) holding at the majority level.

The public is also less content today than three years ago with federal taxes, the quality of medical care, abortion policies, the distribution of wealth, the economy, public education, government regulation of business, and the position of women.

Since 2021, Americans’ satisfaction with another set of issues hasn’t worsened, but it also hasn’t improved. This includes a variety of domestic issue areas, ranging from environmental quality to Social Security to healthcare coverage. And while the public is less satisfied with the military, its satisfaction with the role the U.S. plays in world affairs and the nation’s security from terrorism have been steady.

In some cases, such as with the overall quality of life, and acceptance of gay and lesbian people, satisfaction is holding at the majority level, while in others, such as with the size and influence of major corporations as well as efforts to deal with poverty and homelessness, it is steady but scarce.

The latest results are from Gallup’s annual Mood of the Nation survey, conducted Jan. 2-22. Gallup has tracked Americans’ satisfaction with various aspects of the country annually since 2001, except for 2009 and 2010, and with a reduced list in 2011. (Continued…)
