Results Of UMass Amherst Poll Detail Increasing Dissatisfaction With President Biden’s First Year In Office

Tatishe Nteta, Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the UMass Poll is interviewed by Finnish TV about a recent UMass survey finding increasing dissatisfaction with President Joe Biden after his first year in office. One year into his term in office, President Joe Biden is seeing his approval decline and nearly two-thirds of Americans say the country is on the wrong track. Looking ahead to the midterm elections, “There’s a high likelihood that the Democrats are going to lose seats in the House, they’re going to lose positions in the Senate, and potentially lose control of both houses of Congress,” Nteta says. “If the country rebounds economically, if inflation is controlled, if the country gets a handle over the COVID pandemic, we may not see those losses in seats that Democrats would have historically expected.” (MTV-Finland, 1/20/22)
