Báo Newsweek quay về chính đạo trong năm qua với tin tức và bình luận trung thực nên từ từ lấy lại được uy tín sau khi phá sãn. Hình như CNN cũng đang cố gắng làm như vậy vì bài này tường thuật và phân tích sự thật:
Joe Biden’s numbers are collapsing among a group you really wouldn’t expect – CNNPolitics
In the early days of Biden’s presidency (from January 2021 to June 2021), an average of 6 in 10 adult members of Generation Z — those born between 1997 and 2004 — approved of the job Biden was doing. During the period spanning September 2021 to March 2022, that number had plummeted to an average of just 39%.
Among millennials — those born between 1981 and 1996 — the collapse is similarly stark. Biden’s approval rating among that group stood at 60% in aggregated Gallup numbers in the first half of 2021, compared with 41% more recently.
That loss in confidence among young people was, interestingly, not as steep among older age groups. Over that same period, Biden’s approval ratings among baby boomers — those born between 1946 and 1964 — dipped by only 7 points. Among "traditionalists" — those born before 1946 — his approval rating was unchanged.
Now, some of the discrepancy is because younger Americans were far more positive about Biden at the start of his presidency than older Americans. So there was just more room to fall.
At the same time, it’s clear in other surveys that there has been a significant lessening of enthusiasm for Biden among younger Americans. A Quinnipiac poll released this week showed that just 21% of those aged 18 to 34 said they approved of the way the President was handling his job, while 58% disapproved.
By comparison, 36% of Americans aged 35 to 49 and 35% of Americans aged 50 to 64 approved of Biden’s job performance. Among Americans 65 and over, 48% said the same.
What explains Biden’s precipitous drop-off among young Americans? It’s hard to pinpoint any one reason, but there’s no question the delta between what young people expected out of the Biden presidency — particularly when it came to dealing with Covid-19 — and what they got is substantial.
"By the summer [of 2021], as coronavirus cases unexpectedly rose, Biden had lost significant support among Generation Z, millennials and Generation X, ranging from seven- to 10-percentage-point drops."
