A new poll indicates that the amount of Americans who do not want assistance from federal authorities has gone up by double digits.
The poll — done by Fox News — shows that conservatives are behind the 11% boost in Americans who want less federal government involvement:
“Almost half, 47 percent, report that the message they wish to give the government is to “leave me alone,” which is up from 36 percent last year. On the flip side, 44 percent of people say they want to tell the government to “give me a hand.” That’s lower significantly from the 57 percent who reported that last August.”
The poll also showed that three-quarters of Americans bringing in under $50,000 say that increasing gas and grocery prices are leading to budgetary problems for their families. Over half of people earning over $100,000 agree.
As we have reported before, other new surveys reveal declining approval ratings for Biden and Harris.
A new Rasmussen poll shows that at least 52% of possible voters disapprove of Joe Biden’s performance. 42% reported that they “strongly disapprove” of his presidency, and just 26% said they “strongly approve.”
Also, a report by YouGovAmerica shows that Harris’ unpopularity reached 49%, while her popularity is around 45%. A YouGov poll shows that Harris is especially unpopular with young voters — only 36% of the people surveyed in the 18 to 29 age rage see her “favorably.”
An ABC survey also showed that Americans are moving toward pessimism in the first year of the Biden White House. According to ABC:
“55% of people say they are pessimistic about where the nation seems to be going, a big change from the 36% that reported the same opinion in a May 2 poll. In the May survey, Americans were a lot more optimistic than pessimistic by around a 28-percentage margin. Optimism is now down 10 points. Looking forward to the next year, less than half — 45% — now say they feel optimistic about how things are going, a significant lowering from around 64% in the May poll.”
