According to a recent poll, First Lady Jill Biden’s popularity has hit its lowest point since Pres. Joe Biden took office.
According to a recent poll conducted by SSRS for CNN, 1,459 adults were asked about their “general view of certain people and organizations in the news.” They were to respond whether they had a “favorable or unfavorable opinion of these persons or groups” as well as whether they “had ever heard of them.”
When Jill Biden’s name was mentioned, 34% of respondents had a favorable view, whereas 29% had an unfavorable opinion. Another 37% said they were undecided. Since January 2021, FLOTUS’ likability has decreased 24 percentage points, from 58%.
Her popularity is plummeting due to a remark she made comparing Hispanic people to breakfast tacos during a “Latinx” luncheon speech. She has apologized to the Latino community since then.
During her address, Biden said at the “Latinx IncluXion Luncheon” that the Hispanic community’s diversity was “as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as gorgeous as Miami’s blossoms, and as one-of-a-kind as San Antonio’s breakfast tacos.”
After the criticism, Michael LaRosa, a special assistant to the president and first lady’s press secretary, tweeted that “the First Lady apologizes that her words might have been taken as anything other than genuine affection and respect for the Latino community.”
According to a recent poll, the president and vice pres., Kamala Harris, has an unfavorable view among the respondents. Biden’s likability has plunged from its peak one year ago at 59% to 36% in the current survey. Harris’ popularity has dropped 19 percentage points to 32 percent from 51 percent when it was carried out in 2021.
When asked whether Joe Biden is doing a good job as president, 62% of respondents disapproved and 38% approved.
