The latest poll numbers paint a bleak image for Democrats going into the midterm election cycle 

A devastating new poll for President Joe Biden released on Sunday shows Americans disagreeing with his handling of nearly every issue currently plaguing the United States. 

As inflation rises to the highest level in 40 years, just 28 percent of Americans believe he’s handing it right while 69 percent disapprove. 

Biden is losing Americans’ faith on the foreign policy front as well. After his two-hour video call with Vladimir Putin on his aggressive actions toward Ukraine last week, only 38 percent of Americans have faith he can negotiate with the Russian leader. 

Sixty-two percent of poll respondents said they have ‘just some’ confidence or ‘none at all’ that Biden can face the strongman president. 

Meanwhile Biden’s job approval ratings on crime, the economy, gun violence and taxes have all hit new lows, according to the latest ABC News/Ipsos survey. 

With a historic increase in the US murder rate and a wave of smash-and-grab robberies targeting multiple American cities, just 36 percent of people – or about one in every three – think Biden is being tough on crime. That’s a 10-point drop from his all-time high in late August.

More than 60 percent disapprove of how he’s dealing with it.

Gun violence is also on the rise as America eases out of the pandemic. In October the CDC reported a 15 percent increase in shooting deaths in 2020 from the year before. 

Those numbers don’t bode well for Biden, whose job approval on gun violence dropped 12 percent from his highest point of 44 percent in August. 

In the poll taken December 10 to 12, two-thirds of Americans said they disapprove of the way the president handles gun crime.

The survey’s first day was also the day the Labor Department revealed that consumer prices rose 0.8 percent last month after surging 0.9 percent in October. 

It pushed annual inflation to 6.8 percent in November, the highest increase since June 1982.

Despite record-low jobless claims, the persistent labor shortage is boosting wages, sending costs higher for businesses, and chaos in the supply chain is showing little sign of easing, indicating that high inflation could persist well into 2022. 

Biden called inflation a ‘bump in the road’ during remarks at his Summit for Democracy on Friday but said strong gains in employment and consumer savings mean that ‘economic growth is stronger here than virtually any other nation.’ 

But according to ABC’s survey, people aren’t buying it – a meager 41 percent of respondents approve of how Biden is handling the economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, down from 60 percent in March. His disapproval rating on the economy has hit a new high of 57 percent.

The consumer price index rose 6.8 percent in November from a year ago, up from October's gain of 6.2 percent and the biggest annual gain since 1982

And despite his promise not to raise taxes on the middle class, 40 percent of Americans reacted positively to the president on taxes while 57 percent said the opposite.

Biden’s economic policies are even losing steam among his fellow Democrats – just a slim majority of 54 percent approve of how he’s handling the post-COVID economic recover, according to ABC.

Ninety-four percent of GOP voters disapprove and nearly three-quarters of Independent voters – 71 percent – feel the same, which could be bad news for Democrats in vulnerable seats come the 2022 midterm elections.

Biden’s approval is also suffering on the climate change front, as his $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill, full of social and environmental reforms, stalls in the Senate. Just over half of survey respondents expressed disapproval for how he was handling climate change.

On the foreign policy front, it appears that many Americans are wary of whether Biden can stand up to Russian President Putin

The new poll, which came a day after the president spoke with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on his meeting with Putin, shows Americans are lacking confidence in Biden’s foreign policy skills as he attempts to promote free and fair elections across the globe with his Democracy Summit. 

The White House said Biden had a ‘warm’ conversation with Zelensky after the call and made clear to him that there would be no decisions about Ukraine without the former Soviet state at the table, despite Russia’s alarming military buildup at the border.

Just 42 percent of Americans approve of how Biden is handling Russia. Fifty-five percent disapprove. 

The president did manage to keep his head above water on two fronts. A slim majority of Americans – 53 percent – approve of his handling of infrastructure.

But despite passing a historic investment in the country’s roads, bridges and public transit, the number is still lower than the 62 percent approval he enjoyed in August.

And on the COVID-19 pandemic, which Biden has consistently had positive ratings on, his approval sits at 53 percent. But the number is the lowest he’s scored yet.
