There is only one year remaining until the midterm elections.
Polls indicate that Democrats are in serious jeopardy of losing control of Congress.
According to a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll, Joe Biden is receiving nearly “rock-bottom approval ratings,” Fox News reports.
Kamala Harris’ numbers are even worse as Democrats trail by a wide margin on the generic congressional ballot.
Only 37.8% of those surveyed approved of Biden’s job performance while 59% disapproved. He is more than 21 points underwater.
Harris received a 27.8% approval rating with 51.2% disapproving of her performance in office, according to USA Today/Suffolk University. This is more than 23 percentage points underwater, the report adds.
On Saturday, Biden responded, “The American people have made clear one overwhelming thing, I think – and I really mean it – all the talk about the elections and what do they mean and everything.”
“They want us to deliver,” Biden said after the infrastructure bill passed.
“I think the one message that came across was: Get something done. It’s time to get something done. ”
“Stop – you all stop talking. Get something done,” he added when asked specifically about the Virginia and New Jersey election results.

Congressional Democrats, meanwhile, may face an uphill battle to preserve their razor-thin majorities unless something significant changes before Election Day on Nov. 8, 2022. The USA Today/Suffolk University poll gives Republicans a 46%-to-38% advantage on a generic congressional ballot.
After their devastating losses in Virginia and near miss in New Jersey last week, some expected that Democrats in D.C. would pump the brakes on their ambitious agenda, which some blamed for alienating independent voters. Instead, they took a different read of the situation – that Americans were tired of inaction and debate on Capitol Hill and instead wanted Democrats to pass legislation aimed at helping people.
House Democrats, at the explicit demand of Biden, plowed through what appeared to be irreconcilable differences on their reconciliation spending bill and finally passed the long-delayed bipartisan infrastructure bill, which according to the USA Today-Suffolk poll is supported by Americans 61% to 32%.
