Most Americans Think Biden Admin Is Divisive, Misuses Power

“President Biden’s recent comments about Trump supporters espousing ‘semi-fascism’ and accusing the former president’s followers of representing ‘an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic’ shocked many Americans. Now, despite White House denials of ill intent, a majority of voters call Biden’s remarks divisive, September’s I&I/TIPP Poll shows. During his campaign for the presidency and even in his inauguration speech in 2021, President Biden vowed to ‘unify’ the country after years of often-bitter political division. Voters warmed to the idea that Biden could bring Americans together after years of angry ideological debates, polls showed. But the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows Americans no longer believe that Biden is a uniter, but a divider.” (09/13/22)
