China News Service, March 3. On the evening of the 1st local time, U.S. President Biden delivered his first State of the Union address during his tenure.

A poll showed that nearly 80 percent of those who watched the speech agreed with his remarks.

But there are also polls that show that on some domestic issues in the United States, more than half of the respondents believe that Biden has not made enough efforts.

The speech was well received, and more than half felt optimistic and proud

  A joint CBS/YouGov poll found that 78 percent of Americans who watched Biden's speech approved of his speech, while 22 percent disapproved.

  The majority of people felt positive after watching the speech, with 67% saying they felt "optimistic" and more than 50% saying they felt "proud".

  When asked about their views on Biden's policies, respondents were more positive in multiple areas than before the speech.

For example, after watching Biden's speech, 79% of respondents believe his policies will help control the new crown epidemic, compared with 70% before the speech.

  However, CNN noted that the audience for the State of the Union address was friendlier, with more Democrats than Republicans.

In the CBS/YouGov poll, 49% of respondents identified themselves as Democrats, 21% as Republicans and 28% as independents.

Inflation and crime, more than half think not enough is being done

  But in a CNN poll, 53 percent thought Biden wasn't doing enough to address inflation, and 47 percent affirmed his efforts, split.

  Likewise, when it comes to tackling violent crime, 54% believe Biden is not doing enough.

  Additionally, 64% of respondents said Biden's comments on the U.S. economy were more important than his comments on Ukraine.

  CNN also pointed out that the State of the Union address usually does not have a significant and lasting impact on the president's approval rating.

A poll by the Bipartisan Policy Center this week found that 44 percent of Americans approve of Biden's performance in office, a slight increase from other recent polls.

  The first State of the Union address comes as Biden grapples with a number of challenges, including the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, tensions between Russia and Ukraine and record inflation in the United States.
