Poll: Biden gets low marks on immigration amid border crisis

With at least 18,000 unaccompanied children in US custody after clambering over the border, and growing concern over the conditions at the facilities where they are being held, 57 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s approach on the issue, according to an ABC News/Ipos poll.

The survey also found a majority of Americans, 54 percent, see the situation at the border as a crisis. Another 42 percent say it is a serious problem but not a crisis. Only 4 percent of Americans say it is not a serious problem.

Among Republicans, 89 percent disapprove of Biden’s handling of the situation, while 54 percent of independents disapprove. Among Democrats, one-third disapprove of Biden’s immigration policies so far.
