RNC recruits 45K poll watchers for battleground states during midterms

Poll: Most Americans think Biden admin is divisive and misuses power

By a 2-to-1 margin, most Americans think President Biden misuses the power of his office, delivers divisive rhetoric, and threatens free speech, according to a poll taken in September by I&I/TIPP.

The results come in the wake of Biden’s recent comments that “MAGA Republicans” espouse “semi-fascism,” as well as declaring that the former president’s followers represent “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

During his campaign and in his inauguration speech in 2021, Biden vowed to “unify” the country.

Surprisingly, the poll results showed that 73% of Democrats believed Biden’s MAGA comments increased division, more than did Republicans (50%).
