Poll: Americans less satisfied under Biden administration

(The Center Square) – Americans are less satisfied in a range of areas since President Joe Biden took office, according to a new poll.

Gallup released the polling data Thursday, part of its annual “State of the Union” from American respondents.

Gallup tracks 29 total aspects of American life. Of those, Americans’ satisfaction has increased in only five areas while declining in 12 areas. The remaining 12 remained stagnant.

“Since January 2021, public satisfaction has fallen most sharply with the nation’s military strength and preparedness, the immigration level, the nation’s energy policies, and its laws or policies on guns,” the report said. “All four readings are at or near their record lows, with only satisfaction with the military (62% very or somewhat satisfied) holding at the majority level.

“The public is also less content today than three years ago with federal taxes, the quality of medical care, abortion policies, the distribution of wealth, the economy, public education, government regulation of business, and the position of women,” Gallup added.

Several other aspects have remained steady since 2021, including crime, the environment, healthcare, terrorism, the influence of corporations and others.

“Biden may be comforted to know that Americans have become slightly more satisfied with the position of Black adults and other racial minority people in the country (up eight points to 43%) as well as with race relations, perceptions of the size and power of the federal government, how well the federal government is working, and the state of moral values,” the report said.

While there have been improvements in these areas, most still report less than 50% satisfaction, according to Gallup.

The survey queried about 1,000 U.S. adults in January of this year.
