A recent Vermont Public Radio-PBS poll shows 43% of Vermonters disapprove of the job Pres. Joe Biden is doing.
Biden reportedly won 66% of Vermont’s presidential vote in November, 2020. However, the poll shows that just 45% of Vermonters now approve of his job performance. The Jan. 13 VPR story does say Biden is more popular among Vermont women than men.
The poll question asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Joe Biden is handling his job as president?” The 600 total respondents indicated:
11% Not sure/no opinion
The poll also shows Gov. Phil Scott still enjoys strong support, although down eight points from a September poll. When the poll subjects were asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Phil Scott is handling his job as governor of Vermont,” they responded:
14% Not sure/no opinion
