A new Post-ABC poll released by The Washington Post shows that a majority of Americans are not feeling the impact of President Joe Biden’s legislative agenda.
The poll, conducted by The Washington Post and ABC News, surveyed 1,000 adults in the United States and found that 58 percent of Americans have not felt the impact of Biden’s agenda. This is despite the president signing a number of executive orders and pushing forward a range of legislation, including the American Rescue Plan, which many experts have credited with helping to boost the economy and providing aid to struggling individuals and families.
The poll also found that only 36 percent of Americans said they had been positively impacted by Biden’s agenda, while 6 percent said they had not noticed any impact.
The poll’s findings are surprising, considering the sheer amount of legislation Biden has pushed in his first few months in office. From the American Rescue Plan to the $2 trillion infrastructure plan, as well as pushing for a higher minimum wage, the president has taken a number of steps to make an impact on the economy and people’s lives.
The poll did find that there are clear partisan divides on the issue, with 79 percent of Democrats saying they have felt a positive impact from Biden’s agenda compared to just 15 percent of Republicans.
While the poll shows that a majority of Americans are not feeling the impact of Biden’s legislative agenda, it is likely that this will change as more of his initiatives go into effect. In the coming months, as the economy continues to improve, more Americans are likely to feel the effects of Biden’s policies.
