Trending Now

A recent Fox News national survey reveals a stark reality about President Joe Biden's economic policies according to Fars News. Only 14% of voters feel they have been helped by them.

This finding comes amid growing dissatisfaction with the economy and the country's direction since the beginning of Biden's term.

Widespread Dissatisfaction and Negative Economic Views

The survey indicates a substantial increase in negative views of the economy and overall dissatisfaction with the country's direction, particularly among Democrats.

A significant 68% of voters are unhappy with how things are going in the country, up from 53% early in Biden's term. This rise in dissatisfaction includes a 27-point increase among Democrats.

Personal Financial Strain and Pessimistic Outlook

On a personal level, 64% of voters describe their financial situation as only fair or poor, a 6-point increase from the end of 2022 and 2021. Nearly half of the voters (46%) say Biden's administration's policies have hurt them personally, while only 14% feel helped. Additionally, voters are twice as likely to see the economy worsening next year, with Democrats being the only group expecting improvement.

Biden's Approval Ratings and Issue-Specific Concerns

Biden's overall job approval stands at 43%, with his lowest ratings on inflation at 28%. His performance is also underwhelming on key issues like border security, the Israel-Hamas war, China, the economy, Ukraine, and national security. The economy remains the top issue for voters, followed by immigration.

High Concerns Among Voters

The poll highlights that 86% of voters are extremely or very concerned about inflation. Other major concerns include health care prices, housing costs, retirement savings, interest rates, and the job market. These concerns are notably high among both Republicans and Democrats.
