Biden’s approval ratings keep dropping, according to The Hill.
“Biden’s rating is still in net positive territory, but it seems to have taken a dip with the growing uncertainty that his signature spending plans will be enacted,” Patrick Murray shared.
“Concerns about possible inflation do not appear to undercut overall public support for these spending plans.”
“That might be because many Americans expect the pros will outweigh the cons,” Murray stated.
47% expressed that they are ‘very concerned’ that prices for good and services will continue to rise.
24% said they were “somewhat concerned.”
17% said they were “not too concerned.”
11% said they weren’t concerned at all.
From The Hill:
The latest survey found that 86 percent of Democrats approve of the job Biden is doing, down 9 points from April. Support among independents is also down, from 47 percent to 36 percent.
Meanwhile, support among Republicans jumped 8 points, from 11 percent to 19 percent.
The survey found broad support for Biden’s proposed spending plans. According to the poll, 60 percent of Americans said they supported the COVID-19 stimulus relief passed during his term, while 68 percent supported his infrastructure package proposal.
Additionally, 61 percent said they supported Biden’s proposal to expand health care and child care while providing paid leave and college tuition support.
Still, the poll found that a whopping 71 percent of respondents are concerned that Biden’s spending proposals could result in inflation.
The survey of 810 U.S. adults was conducted June 9-14 via landlines and cellphones and has a margin of error of 3.5 points.
