A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that almost half of Americans think democracy isn’t functioning properly and that our country is headed in a wrong direction.

The nationwide poll, conducted Jan. 28 – Feb. 1, surveyed 1,055 adults.

Only 16% of those surveyed said democracy is working well or extremely well. Nearly half of Americans, 45%, think democracy isn’t functioning properly, while 38% say it’s working only somewhat well.

The majority of people surveyed in the poll believe our nation is deeply divided. So much so, that 62% think the country will become even more divided or stay the same over the next five years.

49% of Americans think we are heading in the right direction, while 49% think we heading in the wrong direction.

A majority of Republicans had a positive view of the direction of the country for most of the Trump Administration. The numbers dropped over the summer and the numbers dropped even more following Joe Biden’s inauguration. Currently, only 20% of Republicans say the country is heading in the right direction, while 79% think it’s heading in wrong direction.

Overall, about two-thirds of Republicans are pessimistic about the future, while three-quarters of Democrats are optimistic. Interestingly, the public’s view of Congress has improved since the November election, according to the survey.

Democrats have favorable impressions of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. Republicans do not share favorable impressions of their party’s congressional leaders. They have mixed views of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and 52% of Republicans have an unfavorable impression of Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell.

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
