Fifty-one percent of independents say President Joe Biden’s economy is very bad, while 2 percent of independents say it’s very good, a Civics poll showed Wednesday.
The Civiqs poll tracked an average of 759,856 responses between January 15, 2015 – September 20, 2020. Civiqs tracking model captures changes in attitudes of various groups over time in all 50 states and Washington, DC. These changes can happen rapidly or over time.
Overall, only 20 percent of those surveyed said Biden’s economy was very good to very good, while 77 percent said it was very bad to very bad. Four percent were not sure.
Only 16 percent of independents say Biden is taking America in the right direction. Sixty-five percent are worse. Fifteen percent said the same thing.

In the past year, more than two million migrants have faced the southern border. Fentanyl has become the leading killer of 18- to 45-year-olds. Inflation is at a 40-year high.
Gas prices hit all-time highs. Weekly wages are reduced. Supply chain woes continue. And the disastrous Afghan withdrawal has deeply troubled the country.
Among independents, Civics found that just 28 percent approve of Biden. Sixty-one percent refused.
In every single state, Biden’s approval is underwater among independents, including Georgia (27-62 percent), Georgia (28-59 percent), Michigan (23-69 percent), Nevada (26-65 percent), and Pennsylvania (31-59 percent). ), and Wisconsin (32-59 percent).
Biden’s dismal polling in swing states among independents does not bode well for Democrats’ hopes of retaining control of the Senate and House. President approval ratings in swing states are a bellwether for future elections.
Fifty-six percent of Americans say President Joe Biden’s 40 years of high inflation have caused them hardship, up from 49 percent in January and 45 percent in November, a Gallup poll found this week. https://t.co/5axxAh8o9s

It’s still likely that Republicans will win back the House, but the Senate is more of a tossup. Races in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Nevada were tight within the margin of error. Republican candidates still lead in Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida. But in Arizona, Sena. Trump-endorsed Blake Masters is trailing well in polls against Mark Kelly (D-AZ).
Sen. A super PAC directed by Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday dropped $9.6 million in support of Masters. The fund instead sent the money to New Hampshire, Georgia and Nevada.
