“Since last month, the percentage of Democrats saying the country is headed in the wrong direction rose from 66%.”
A new and devastating poll for Joe Biden dropped this week, indicating that most Americans believe the country is on the wrong track.
We could probably cite a bad poll for Biden on a near-daily basis, but this one is significant for what it shows about members of Biden’s party.
The AP NORC Poll has found that even 78 percent of Democrats agree that the country is headed in the wrong direction.
From the Associated Press:
Most say nation on wrong track, including Dems: AP-NORC poll
An overwhelming and growing majority of Americans say the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction, including nearly 8 in 10 Democrats, according to a new poll that finds deep pessimism about the economy plaguing President Joe Biden.
Eighty-five percent of U.S. adults say the country is on the wrong track, and 79% describe the economy as poor, according to a new survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The findings suggest Biden faces fundamental challenges as he tries to motivate voters to cast ballots for Democrats in November’s midterm elections…
The poll shows only 39% of Americans approve of Biden’s leadership overall, while 60% disapprove. His approval rating fell to its lowest point of his presidency last month and remains at that level.
Naturally, the AP buried this detail towards the bottom of the article:
The national dissatisfaction is bipartisan, the poll shows. Ninety-two percent of Republicans and 78% of Democrats say the country is headed in the wrong direction. Since last month, the percentage of Democrats saying the country is headed in the wrong direction rose from 66%.

Stephen L. Miller makes a good catch about how the media frames this:
Someone pointed out how these guys frame stories as always bad things happening TO Joe Biden, not because of him and not happening to the country. Here's another example. https://t.co/qjVXkIAP08
