Most Voters Say Biden Not Focused on Important Issues

( According to a CNN survey released on Monday, a majority of Americans believe President Biden hasn’t been paying enough attention to the country’s most pressing problem.

The survey, conducted by SSRS during the first four days of November, found that 58 percent of respondents think Biden is ignoring the country’s most important problems. Overall, 52 percent disapprove of his job performance.

According to the survey, respondents rated what they believe is the most important issue facing the country today. The top five issues were the Economy (36 percent), the COVID pandemic (20 percent), Immigration (14 percent), Climate Change (11 percent), and National Security (8 percent).

Despite the administration’s “all-government” focus on “equity” and “racial justice,” only 5 percent of respondents named this the most important issue.

You can always count on the Biden administration to focus on the one issue virtually nobody in the country cares about.

Broken down by party, 51 percent of Republicans chose the Economy as their top concern. Twenty-three percent of Republicans chose Immigration while 13 percent chose National Security. Only 4 percent of Republicans think COVID is the country’s most important issue.

Among Independents, 38 percent said the Economy was the top concern while 18 percent said COVID, 13 percent said Immigration, and 11 percent said Climate Change.

For Democrats, the most important issue facing the country is COVID (34 percent). The Economy came in second with 20 percent, then Climate Change (18 percent). Only 8 percent of Democrats believe Immigration is important, and just 3 percent listed National Security.

While Biden’s overall disapproval was 52 percent in this survey, only 21 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning Independents say they disapprove of Biden’s job performance. However, as low as that disapproval is, it is still a 4 percent increase in disapproval over the previous month’s survey.

The survey also asked how confident respondents were that upcoming elections will be fair. Only 40 percent of Republicans and 66 percent of Independents said they were confident. Among Democrats, however, confidence in elections remains high (84 percent).
