Biden’s big spending hasn’t swayed as many voters as he’d like: Poll

President Joe Biden has touted many of his major spending bills as he seeks a second term in the White House, but voters are not being swayed, according to new polling data.

The poll from Politico-Morning Consult released on Wednesday shows that Biden’s bevy of laws passed during his first two years in office — including the American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, CHIPS and Science Act, and Inflation Reduction Act — are not viewed as favorably as the president would want.

The survey shows that only 26%-29% of voters view any of the four bills as having positively impacted their community.


When asked if Biden’s federal spending on infrastructure has had a major, minor, or no impact on their community, voters were split, but a plurality — 30% — said it had no impact on their community. Of the remaining voters, 26% each said Biden’s spending had a major and minor impact.

Voters are also divided on who has done more for infrastructure improvements, despite it being a major push by Biden’s campaign.


In another negative sign for Biden, voters are generally pessimistic about how the country is doing now compared to four years ago. When asked if the country’s economy is better or worse off than four years ago, 61% said the economy is somewhat or much worse off, and 34% said the economy is somewhat or much better off than four years ago.

In most swing states and in the RealClearPolitics national polling average, Trump leads Biden — in reverse of the polling figures four years ago.
