According to a recent Harvard-Harris poll, President Joe Biden has “poor” approval on practically every important subject.
The poll gauged respondents' support on a variety of subjects, from the economy to immigration, and found Biden to be unpopular.
The president's popularity rating for his economy has been stable over the last month, at 39 percent since April. Fewer than half, 48 percent, approve of Biden “stimulating jobs,” while 46 percent support his anti-terrorism efforts. Even fewer, 43 percent, approve of his management of international affairs, and just 39 percent approve of his handling of crime and violence in the country as a whole. 37 percent favor of how he handles inflation, and 38 percent approve of how he handles immigration.
Significantly, Biden's support rating on immigration is down two percent from 40 percent in April and three percent from 41 percent in March.
The poll looked deeper into this topic, as the majority of respondents regarded illegal immigration as at least moderately serious. Sixty percent say the number of monthly border crossers has grown under Biden's administration, and 68 percent support “stricter policies to reduce the flow of people coming across the border.” Furthermore, 53% feel Biden's border policies are “increasing the flow of drugs and crimes” to the United States.
The study was conducted among 2,004 registered voters on May 17-18, 2023, and comes as more horror stories of illegal immigrant criminality emerge around the country.
