NEW YORK – Americans in the Big Apple offered lackluster grades for President Biden’s performance as he campaigns for re-election, with many citing the economy as a primary concern.
“Our country needs help,” Verdena from Nebraska told Fox News, awarding the president a failing grade. “And he’s not working for our country.”

“The economy could be a little bit better,” Susan from New York said, citing high inflation. “But there are other things I do agree with. So it’s kind of like passable but not exceptional.” She gave the president a C.
‘PASSABLE BUT NOT EXCEPTIONAL’: AMERICANS IN NYC GRADE BIDEN:
Richard from Nebraska was less forgiving of economic issues, giving Biden a flat F grade.
Biden has just 33% approval when it comes to economic issues, according to a poll released last month by the Associated Press and the National Opinion Research Center (AP-NORC) at the University of Chicago. Americans polled also doubted the president’s ability to handle gun policies and immigration, at 31% for both issues.
