A new Emerson College national poll shows President Biden’s job approval underwater: 42% approve of the job he is doing as president while 50% disapprove; 8% are unsure. This is a slight increase in approval from November 2021, when 41% approved of Biden's job performance and 50% disapproved.

Inflation is seen as the most important issue facing the country among a plurality (24%) of voters. Covid-19 follows with 20%, closely followed by healthcare with 16%, and immigration with 11%. Education and jobs were the top issue for 6% of voters, respectively, and taxes and foreign affairs with 3% apiece. Twelve percent (12%) report “something else;” and when these voters specified their top issue, the most common responses included climate change, crime, and income inequality.

Voters were asked which congressional candidate on the ballot they would be most likely to vote for in the midterms, the Democratic candidate or the Republican candidate. Half of voters (50%) say they plan to vote for the Republican candidate, while 41% say they plan to vote for the Democratic candidate; 9% are undecided. This is similar to the November national poll, which had Republican candidates nationwide leading Democratic candidates 49% to 42%.

In a hypothetical 2024 match up, former President Donald Trump is at 48% and President Biden is at 44%: a two point change from November where Trump was ahead 45% to 43%. Both poll results are within the polls margin of error.


Voters are split on the level of threat Covid-19 presents to public health in the US: 28% say Covid-19 is a major threat, 37% say it is a moderate threat, 20% say it is a minor threat, and 15% find it not to be a threat at all. This compares to December 2020, when a majority (54%) of voters categorized Covid-19 as a major threat, and only 17% found it to be a minor threat or not a threat.

The Emerson College February national poll was conducted February 19-20, 2022. The sample consisted of registered voters in the United States, n=1,138 with a Credibility Interval (CI) similar to a poll’s margin of error (MOE) of +/- 2.8 percentage points. The data sets were weighted by age, education, race, and region based on 2020 turnout modeling. It is important to remember that subsets based on gender, age, party breakdown, ethnicity, and region carry with them higher margins of error, as the sample size is reduced. Data was collected using a cellphone sample of SMS-to-web, an online panel provided by Amazon MTurk, and an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system of landlines.

Republicans +9 for the November midterms and Trump +4 for 2024 is brutal.

Take that same poll in a month and watch the "Foreign affairs" bars skyrocket.

Interesting, usually these poll are set up to satisfy the Democrat confirmation bias; either they're looking for a change, or this is a right wing poll, or there's actually been a shift in public opinion.

There has been a shift in public opinion.

But that is normal for midterms. They always end up badly for the incumbent party.

Emerson polls are not right wing, they had good results for 2018 and 2020 and they also did some state polling.
