Americans say Biden, Trump presidencies hurt US for several reasons: Poll

Americans believe that both President Biden and former President Trump’s terms in office have done more harm than good, but they say so for different reasons, a new survey shows.

The AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs survey found that people think Biden’s presidency has hurt the country over the cost of living, immigration and international relations. Respondents said Trump’s time in the White House damaged voting rights, election security, international relations, abortion laws and climate change.

Fifty-eight percent of respondents, and an overwhelming 87 percent of Republicans, said Biden has hurt the country over the cost of living. Likewise, 56 percent of all respondents say Biden has hurt the country on immigration and border security, with 88 percent of Republican respondents agreeing.

Biden scored better marks among respondents on issues like job creation, but still received mixed reviews; 36 percent of respondents said Biden has helped create jobs, 36 percent said he has hurt job creation and 27 percent said neither.

Forty-seven percent of respondents think both Biden and Trump are hurting the United States’ relations with other countries. Respondents stuck to party lines, with a majority of Democrats more likely to say Trump has hurt the US internationally, and a majority of Republicans the same about Biden.

Forty-six percent of respondents said Trump’s term in office harmed voting rights and election laws. A majority, 75 percent, of Democrats said he harmed the electoral process, while 54 percent of Republican respondents said he helped.

Trump also received poor ratings for his stance on abortion and climate change, issues the Biden campaign wants to capitalize on.

While some Democratic respondents said Biden has had a negative impact in some areas, very few Republicans believe Trump has had a negative impact on any issue, the survey found.

Trump received higher marks from his party than Biden when voters were asked about their personal benefit from their candidates’ terms in office; 77 percent of Republicans said Trump did more to help them, while 52 percent of Democrats said Biden benefited them.
