The poll shows that Americans are even more opposed to Biden running for president again than they are regarding former President Donald Trump:
Those polled said they
were more likely to vote for a Republican congressional candidate
than Democrat if elections were held today (46% to 38%).
Biden previously tied the bill's signing to the passage of his 'Build Back Better' social spending package, which Democrats hope to pass through a special Senate procedure without Republican votes.
While the majority of those surveyed (61%) backed the infrastructure bill, the poll found that the public is split on the 'Build Back Better' plan; 44% oppose it, while 47% expressed support.
About 30% of respondents
believe it would have a detrimental effect on their families, while
26% think they would benefit from its provisions.

Yet Kamala Harris
is totally unfit for the presidency, a dilemma
that puts the United States in an awful bind.
Not only did Harris
manage to underperform her doddering boss, Joe Biden, but she even
Dick Cheney, one of the most
loathsome creatures to have ever emerged from the fetid swamp.
Not done there, Cheney beefed up his evil portfolio through his connections to Halliburton, the company that the Bush administration contracted to rebuild Iraq's destroyed oil infrastructure, and where Cheney served as CEO from 1995 to 2000 (he said he donated any profits he made from his Halliburton stock to "charity").
And let's not even get
and his role in waterboarding detainees abroad, and
spying on Americans at home.
The question is, how...?
Not only does this woman shirk from the most obvious tasks, like paying a visit to the US-Mexico border at the peak of a migrant crisis (only after Donald Trump announced his own visit was she prompted to pack her bags), she lacks the necessary people skills to even sit down for a chat with children without looking more plastic than a Lego factory.
Yet, there she is, one
Biden heartbeat or two away from one of the most powerful political
offices in the world.
US politics, which once
upon a time was built on the rock of personal merit, has been
reduced to a box-ticking exercise that is increasingly willing to
substitute raw political talent with pretenders.
Tulsi Gabbard, for example, a Samoan-American Hindu from Hawaii, comes off as a highly qualified candidate with strong leadership skills. She is someone I would have enthusiastically endorsed had the media gatekeepers not disappeared her.
While Gabbard fulfilled all of the necessary diversity requirements, the former member of the US Army failed to tick the box for 'pro-war.'
That is a 'character
flaw' that makes her prospects for attaining high office in the
current political climate about as easy as ascending Mount Everest.
That tragedy, followed up
with months of Black Lives Matter protests just before the
Biden-Trump showdown, ingrained in the public mind the media-fueled
narrative that not only the US, but its police forces, suffer from a
malignancy known as 'systemic racism.'
Presently, however, it
looks as though the Democratic Party has suffered a Pyrrhic victory
with the Biden-Harris tag team, and one that may have set the party
back light years.
Amid a large field of Democratic presidential candidates, Harris was forced to withdraw early from the race with a public approval rating below 4%.
Today, Harris appears to
be no more popular among her colleagues, who have
complained that they toil in an
"abusive environment" and are "treated like s**t," than she was with
Democratic voters just over a year ago.
What they are mostly
concerned about is whether the individual is qualified to represent
their interests once they have been elected to office.
Instead, the Democratic
Party is breaking under the pressure of a president and vice
president who are beyond the help of their best handlers, while
becoming actual liabilities.
