According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, 41 percent of all adults say they are not "better off financially" than when Joe Biden became president, a record in the history of that poll, while Americans gave the president poor marks on other major issues ranging from Ukraine to the border.

According to ABC News, "Four in 10 Americans say they've gotten worse off financially since Joe Biden became president, the most in ABC News/Washington Post polls dating back 37 years," with the outlet adding that "After Trump's first year, just 13 percent felt worse off financially. That spiked to 35 percent under Biden a year ago, and its level now, 41 percent, is the most measured in 33 ABC/Post polls since September 1986."

59 percent of registered voters marked that they "disapprove of the way Biden is handling the economy."

Under Joe Biden, the country has faced record-setting high inflation which reached the height of 9.1 percent in June of 2022. Inflation's impact is compounded by an ongoing supply chain crisis and the possibility of a recession

By party, 72 percent of Republicans, 12 percent of Democrats, and 39 percent of Independents said they were worse off financially since Biden took office.

When asked "During his time in office, would you say Biden has accomplished a great deal, a good amount, not very much or little or nothing," 62 percent of all adults said Biden had done "Not very much/ little to nothing."

When asked, "Do you approve or disapprove of the way Joe Biden is handling his job as president?" 53 percent or registered voters disapproved, with 42 percent strongly disapproving. 91 percent of Republicans, 16 percent of Democrats, and 51 percent of Independents said they disapprove.

"Biden's approval rating after two years in office is well below average compared with the previous 13 presidents," according to the outlet.

46 percent of registered voters disapproved of how Biden has dealt with the war in Ukraine. 

In February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine and the Biden administration and Congress have spent over $60 billion funding the war in Ukraine,

61 percent of registered voters disapproved of the "way Biden is handling the immigration situation at the US-Mexico border."

Biden's border crisis has seen a record-high number of illegal immigrants pouring into the United States, which has compounded a historic increase in drug and human trafficking.

On Sunday, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg went on the ABC program This Week and told host Jonathan Karl that Joe Biden has been a "historically successful president," despite the poll's results.

In the clip, Karl cited a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll that showed a "large number of Democrats" do not want Biden to run for re-election and Buttigieg replied, "He is an absolutely historically successful president and I want to see that continue."

When asked, "Would you like the Democratic Party to nominate Biden to run for a second term as president in 2024, or would you like the Democratic Party to nominate someone other than Biden as its candidate for president?," 58 percent of voters who lean Democrat wanted someone other than Biden.

In the same poll, registered voters indicated they preferred former President Donald Trump over Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election, with Trump garnering 48 percent support compared to Biden at 45 percent overall, and Independents favoring Trump by 50 percent, 9 points over Biden at 41 percent.
