According to a Quinnipiac University poll, President Biden’s approval had dropped off the cliff after placing vaccine mandates on mid-sized to large businesses and federal employers and contractors.
Only 48 percent of U.S. adult respondents approve of Biden’s handling of the pandemic, with 49 percent disapproving. In August, the numbers were flipped. 53 percent approved and 40 percent disapproved.
Biden’s disapproval rating has jumped nine points in one month, while his approval dropped five points.
The worst seems to come from independents, in the recent poll marking Biden at 44 percent approval of handling the pandemic with 53 disapproval.
Also revealed, 70 percent of Americans are dissatisfied with Biden’s America. While only 29 percent say, they are “very satisfied” with America after former President Trump left office.
It should be noted Quinnipiac University poll notoriously leans Democrat. FiveThirtyEight rates the Quinnipiac as Democrat “bias” poll.
The polling numbers follow Biden’s new vaccine mandates on Americans and the fall of his approval rolling number to 39 percent, mostly due to his part in the deadly evacuation of Afghanistan.
Biden said, “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” Biden scolded 80 million people who remain unvaccinated, practicing their individual freedom to do so. Biden also said those who are unvaccinated are risking the lives of “all of us” while announcing the vaccine mandate on September 8.
“Your refusal has cost all of us,” he said while stating the vaccines are “effective.”
Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 1,210 U.S. adult respondents from September 10 – 13 with a margin of error of 2.8 percent.
