According to a recent poll, more American people disapprove than approve of how President Joe Biden handled the discovery of secret documents at his residence and former workplace, but it doesn’t appear that this had much of an effect on how well-liked he is in general.
According to the latest AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, 41% of Americans say they are satisfied with how Vice President Joe Biden is carrying out his duties as president, which is almost the same as the 43% who said that in December.
According to the most recent poll, 91% of Republicans disapprove of how Biden handles his position, while 77% of Democrats think he is doing a good job.
Biden, who will deliver the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress the following week, needs all the help he can get as he plans his anticipated reelection campaign and has been working to divert attention from the documents scandal to his agenda and significant legislative victories.
When cleaning out his office at the Penn Biden Center, a think tank where he temporarily worked after leaving government,
Biden’s lawyers found classified materials in a locked cupboard in November.
Officials from the Justice Department received the records. Additional documents were found during searches by his attorneys and the FBI at his residence in Wilmington, Delaware, following the finding that sparked a special counsel probe.
39% to 23% disapprove of his handling the problem since the classified materials were discovered, while 36% say they don’t care either way. Democrats are more likely than Republicans to approve (44% to 15%), with 40% stating they don’t care.
Republicans as a whole, 68%, say they disapprove, compared to 6% who say they approve and 24% who have no view.
Republicans are also slightly more likely than Democrats, 71% to 63%, to report that they have heard at least some information about the issue.
