The American people do not see all the political parties, the Republican and Democratic leaders
The Pew Research Center conducted the survey to understand the views of the people on President Joe Biden, other conference leaders and the national economy. In this study, we surveyed 6,174 U.S. officials between June 27 and July 4, 2022. Each participant in this survey is a member of the Center’s American Trends Panel (ATP), a multidisciplinary online research team. about residential addresses. In this way almost all US officials have the opportunity to vote. The study is expected to represent US adults based on gender, race, ethnicity, political affiliation, education and other categories.

Here are the questions used in this report and its methods.
Given public perceptions of the country’s economy over the worst years, Joe Biden’s political role is the lowest in his leadership. Yet Biden is not the only place on the list of political dissent in the country: Americans are expressing negative views of all major parties and a number of leading leaders, including Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump.
Biden’s current credentials are the lowest since he became President, with 37% of US officials saying they approve of his performance as President while 62% do not. Biden’s performance has dropped by 6 percent since March (43%) by 18 points last year; Last July, a majority of 55% approved Biden’s work.
Amid rising inflation, public outlook on the global economy has worsened since the beginning of this year. Today, only 13% of adults say that the economic situation in the United States is good or bad; 28% said this six months ago.
Many Americans say Biden’s policies have hurt the economy: 56% now say his policies have made the economy worse, compared to only 11% who say his policies have boosted the economy. About one-third (32%) say they do not have many side effects. The proportion of Americans who say Biden’s policies have caused the economy to worsen has increased by 16 percent since last September.
The economic situation – as well as the impact of the president’s economic policy – has been deeply divisive in the wake of apartheid. However, only 20% of Democrats and pro-democracy activists say Biden’s policies have improved the economy, while 52% say they have no consequences and 27% say they have made things worse. Of the Republicans and Republicans leaning, 90% say Biden’s policies have made the economy worse.
A new Pew Research Center survey of 6,174 U.S. officials, conducted June 27 to July 4, found that only 20% of Democrats and 5% of Republicans consider the country’s economy to be either good or bad. This outlook has declined sharply since January, with 36% of Democrats and 20% of Republicans optimistic about the economy. Right now, Republicans are more numerous than Democrats to see things as poor (67% vs. 32%); Democrats can claim to be “righteous” (47% vs. 28%).
The economic downturn is worrying because of rising prices. Three-quarters of Americans say they are deeply concerned about rising food and commodity prices; the same section states that they are very concerned about rising oil and energy prices. Many people in almost every social group say that they are worried about rising food and energy prices.
Of the other five respondents, housing prices have a significant impact, with six in 10 being said to be most affected. About four in ten (42%) are most affected by the limited availability of other consumer goods. A few Americans say they are very worried that fellow employers will find workers to hire (32%), the stock market (31%) or the unemployed (27%).
When asked to identify potential causes of inflation, nearly half of adults (49%) say that “businesses that take advantage of the economy to increase their profits” have contributed significantly to inflation. Almost the majority (45%) mention the disadvantages of COVID-19 in manufacturing and shipping.
Few say that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine (39%), government assistance to address the economic crisis (32%), or that interest rates were very low until recently (25%) have contributed significantly to inflation. .
Democrats are more likely than Republicans to point out that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by businesses that are taking advantage of the situation to increase profits is the main reason for the rise in prices. Republicans, by contrast, have the opportunity to direct government assistance to address the economic crisis caused by the epidemic.
Other important results from this study
Both parties continue to be viewed unfairly. Within four months of the general election, no party is as popular as the people. The vast majority of Americans say they see the Democratic Party (41%) better than the Republican Party (37%), but most people view both sides wrongly (61% of the GOP and 57% of Democrats).
Biden, Trump, party leaders see worse than good. The views of the people of the eight political leaders involved in the survey – including Biden and Trump – are all negative. People are giving Biden (43% better vs. 55% negative) a slightly better vote than Trump (38% vs. 60%). The Congress leaders have done the worst, with Senate junior leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi each being stigmatized by about six in ten Americans (62% McConnell and 60% Pelosi). The views of Vice President Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence are very positive, yet both are still under water for their own good.
Biden is viewed negatively – but better than Trump – on other terms. Examining Biden’s performance in some areas is not as good – as it was for Trump during his tenure – but Biden surpasses Trump in establishing “excellent presidential values” (43% say Biden did or may have done this, compared to 27%). who spoke of Trump in August 2018) and run a “open and transparent system” (44% say this about Biden today vs. 37% of Trump four years ago). However, Trump also said more about how the government works (37% in 2018) than saying this about Biden today (29%).
They are more aligned with the GOP than Democrats on economic issues, but Democrats have limits on many things. Americans are more likely to claim to support the Democratic Party than the Republican Party in a number of major issues – including health issues, race, COVID-19 and climate change as well as policies that affect LGBT people.
However, the Republican Party has a 7 percent economic advantage: 40% of Americans say they support the GOP financially, compared to one-third of the Democratic Party.
With the terms of the abortion in accordance with the Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss Roe v. Wade, 43% say they agree with Democrats on abortion, while 29% say Republicans; another 26 percent say they disagree with anyone on abortion issues.
