Poll: Less than half of likely voters believe President Biden’s European tour was successful

A recent Rasmussen poll from last week indicates that only about 44% of likely United States voters believe that Joe Biden’s European tour was successful.

The poll was released by Rasmussen, and asked voters whether or not Joe Biden’s trip to Europe, including the G7 Summit, was a successful one. Only 40% believed the trip was successful, 22% of which thought it was very successful. 40% believed the trip to be completely unsuccessful. The report was broken down into categories regarding foreign policy, and the results are telling.

According to Breitbart News, the data collected by Rasmussen indicates particularly low results in this area. “Twenty-five percent (25%) of voters rate the way President Biden is handling foreign policy issues as excellent, while another 17% rate Biden’s handling of foreign policy good. Fourteen percent (14%) say Biden has done a fair job of handling foreign policy and 39% give him a poor rating” (Rasmussen).

Biden’s European trip ended with a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday where Biden permitted Putin to conduct a solo press conference. “The Russian president ignored questions about quashing his political opponents and, instead, freely jabbed America on the 2020 Black Lives Matters and Antifa riots,” (Breitbart).
