Biden gets a bounce after the State of the Union, NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll shows
- Overall approval rating jumped to 47%, up 8 points from the NPR poll last month. Presidents don't generally see much, if any bounce, out of a State of the Union address. Since 1978, there had only been six times when a president saw an approval rating improve 4 points or more following State of the Union addresses, according to the pollsters. Three of those bounces were for former President Bill Clinton.
- Ukraine handling is up 18 points to 52%.
- Coronavirus pandemic handling is now 55%, up 8 points.
- Economic handling up 8 points to 45%.
As I stated in a previous OP of mine, this invasion of Putin in Ukraine is going to give Biden a strong boost for the midterm elections. Biden is handling the problem in the best way possible and it will erase all the negatives that had haunted him last year (Afghanistan and Omicron).
