Some voters believe Democrats should have enacted more bills when they controlled both chambers of U.S. Congress in 2021.
The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll found 28% of Americans surveyed do not think the Democratic Party seized their political advantage in both Congress and the White House.
Respondents blamed Democrats for being “too busy fighting” or lacking “resolve.”
A further 47% accused the GOP of blocking bills, while only 25% thought the Democratic Party achieved most of its political goals.
The finding echoes concerns from moderate Democrats who are up for reelection on Nov. 8. They claim the party focuses too much on failures instead of successes like the $1 trillion infrastructure bill passed in November 2021.
“The finding illustrates a dissatisfaction among Democratic voters,” the newswire agency reported.
Growing voter dissatisfaction could even create challenges for Joe Biden to secure another four years in the Oval Office during the 2024 election.
“If his party cannot close the enthusiasm gap, its turnout could suffer in November, raising the risk of losing its slim congressional majorities and dooming his legislative agenda,” Reuters reported.
A total of 59% of Republicans intend to vote in November compared to just 55% of Democrat supporters according to The Hill.
The poll surveyed a sample of 4,404 adults between Jan. 31 and Feb. 8, 2022. It reported a “credibility interval” of between 2 and 5 percentage points.
