According to the poll, 62% of Americans said Biden has accomplished “not very much” or “little or nothing” since he’s been in office; 12% said he accomplished “a great deal,” 25% said he’s accomplished “a good amount.”
“On many of Biden’s signature initiatives – from improving the country’s infrastructure to making electric vehicles more affordable to creating jobs – majorities of Americans say they do not believe he has made progress,” the Washington Post reported.
According to the poll, the majority surveyed disapprove of his job two years into presidency. His approval rating, according to the poll, is 42%; 53% expressed disapproval.
A majority, 58%, also disapproved of his handling of the economy; 37% said they approved.

Only 9% said they had a “great deal of confidence” in congressional Republicans’ ability to make the right decisions for the country’s future; 36% said they had “none at all.”
Slightly more, 12%, said they had a “great deal of confidence” in congressional Democrats’ ability to make the right decisions for the country’s future; 39% said “none at all.”
Only 5% said they had a “great deal of confidence” in Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy; 36% said they had “none at all.”
A strong majority of respondents said Biden hasn’t made progress on four issues cited in the poll. When it comes to making electric vehicles more affordable, 26% said he’d made progress, 56% said he hadn’t.

When Democratic respondents were asked if they would like the Democratic Party to nominate Biden to run for a second term in 2024 or nominate someone else, 31% said Biden; 58% said someone else.
When Republican respondents were asked the same question about Trump, 67% said they wanted Trump to be nominated; 30% said someone else.
Slightly more than one-third, 36%, said they’d be satisfied with Biden being reelected in 2024; 62% said they’d be dissatisfied.
If Trump were elected president in 2024, 43% said they’d be satisfied; 56% dissatisfied.
