The first couple Joe and Jill Biden took a leisurely bike ride during their weekend in Rehobobo on Sunday, when a new poll came out that more than half of Americans believe the country is less united under this administration.
AN Fox News Survey released Sunday showed that 54 percent of registered voters think the country has become more divided since Biden took office on Jan. 20, 2021, and 37 percent say the country has become “more united.”
Only 7 percent of 1,002 respondents believe there has been no change from when Donald Trump was in the White House and after Biden took over — and 3 percent say they don’t know.

President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were spotted together on a bike ride in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on Sunday morning.
Using the word “unity” eight times in his inaugural address, Biden vowed to bring the country together and close the divisions in society that Democrats say had been created by Trump when he was president.
The poll question comes as Biden faces a slew of criticism on several fronts, including his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, the raging crisis on the southern border and his failure to get approved boosters in mid-September, as previously promised.
Rather than face any of these issues, the president went to his beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware, on the weekend.
He was spotted on a bike ride with First Lady Jill Biden on Sunday morning.
Biden will travel to New York City on Monday to make remarks at the United Nations General Assembly meeting.
While US voters are unimpressed by Biden’s pursuit of unity, a simple majority believe he cares about “people like you.” However, that number drops from 56 percent in October 2020 to 51 percent now.
This shift is mainly attributed to a 15-point dip among independent voters, according to the Fox survey.
When it comes to several issues, Biden ranks highest for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic with a 55 percent to 44 percent disapproval — a largely unchanged figure from the same poll question in August.

The poll was conducted Sept. 12-15, before a Food and Drug Administration advisory board rejected the recommendation for the Pfizer booster to the general public, thwarting Biden’s promise to get it approved by Sept. 20.
Instead, they recommended the booster only for people 65 and older and Americans with a higher chance of contracting the disease, such as pre-existing conditions or a more risky work environment.
Biden’s most dismal figures come from the withdrawal from Afghanistan, which killed 13 US servicemen and stranded hundreds of Americans. The poll shows that only 36 percent of voters approve of the total and hasty withdrawal of US troops, while 60 percent disapprove of it.
Voters are generally divided on his way of dealing with the economy, with 50 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval.
