Amid Europeís largest land war since World War II, 7 in 10 Americans expressed low confidence in President Joe Bidenís ability to deal with Russiaís invasion of Ukraine in a new NBC News poll, and 8 in 10 voiced worry that the war will increase gas prices and possibly involve nuclear weapons.
The poll was conducted March 18-22, before the president's overseas trip, where he met with NATO allies, visited with U.S. troops in Poland and delivered a major speech about Russia's war in Ukraine.
The erosion in Bidenís approval rating has been across the board among key demographic groups, including Black respondents (from 64 percent approve in January to 62 percent now), women (from 51 percent approve to 44 percent), Latinos (from 48 percent to 39 percent) and independents (36 percent to 32 percent).
Would you prefer it if Republicans or Democrats control Congress after the 2022 midterm elections? The 2-point GOP lead ó within the pollís margin of error ó is the first the Republicans have held on this question since 2014.
The NBC News poll was conducted March 18-22 of 1,000 adults ó 750 of whom were reached by cellphone ó and has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points.
1. The Roaring Bear from Delaware is becoming the LBJ of Commanders in chief. (He's already the Jimmy Carter of energy and inflation.) And, this is before his brain-dead call for regime change in Russia and his vague, brainless, suggestion that NATO would use chemical weapons "in kind" in response to a Russian attack.
2. Look for a red wave in November. If the GOPs have a 2 point lead in the generic ballot among all Americans, what do you suppose it is among people who will actually vote?
Also, remember. pb said this would happen if you foist that Flatulent Fool on the world.
