According to a new Rasmussen Reports Survey released on Tuesday around 47 percent of Americans said that they believe President Joe Biden has made the country “worse”. Around 34 percent said that he has changed the country for the better while 17 percent said that he has not made it “much different”. Around 2 percent were unsure.
The survey’s exact question was, “Generally speaking, has President Joe Biden made America better or worse as a nation? Or has Biden’s presidency not made much difference?”
Along partisan lines, the percentages changed quite a bit with 57 percent of Democrats saying that they believed he had made the country better. Around 18 percent of Democrats said that he had made the country “worse.” This is a sentiment that around 70 percent of Republicans and 54 percent of independents also shared.
The survey also showed that 42 percent of responders said that the country’s best days were in the past and 38 percent said that its best days were still to come. Around 20 percent were unsure of how to respond.
From those around 52 percent of the Democrats appeared to believe that the country’s best days were in the future, while 56 percent of Republicans and 42 percent of independents believed them to be in the past.
When it came to specific demographics, voters aged 40 or older thought that Biden had made the country worse, while only 36 percent of those under 40 agreed with this sentiment. Of those over the age of 40, 50 percent thought the country’s best days were in the future.
