Increasing Number of Americans View Biden as 'Too Far-Left': Poll
Forty-six percent of Americans seen Biden as 'too liberal'
More Americans are starting to view Joe Biden as more far-left on policy, according to a new poll showing a 10 percent increase since 2019.
As of May, forty-six percent of Americans see Biden as “too liberal."
Before Biden took office, only 36 percent said Biden was too liberal.
Meanwhile, forty percent believe Biden’s radical policies are “about right.”
The number is down two percent from 2019.
But just ten percent said Biden is “too conservative.”
The Biden administration has pushed a radical agenda in the first 100 days, axing many of Donald Trump's policies and including things like amnesty, reparations, court-packing, and federalized elections.

In April, far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez praised Biden, saying he exceeded their "progressive" agenda.
"The Biden Administration and President Biden have definitely exceeded expectations that progressives had."
"A lot of us expected a much more conservative administration."
Biden received a thumbs-up seal of approval for his actions in pushing through the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package, otherwise known as the American Rescue Plan.
AOC said Biden's flexibility in negotiations has been "very impressive" and led to the passage of "progressive legislation."
"It’s been good so far," the congresswoman said.
Even before Biden took office, Axios published an analysis concluding Biden had shifted decisively left.
Axios’s Hans Nichols wrote in an article titled “Biden’s centrist mirage:"
Joe Biden spent a career cultivating the image of a deal-making centrist — and is making this a key selling point for swing voters in 2020.
But the modern Biden has been pushed left by his party’s insurgent progressives. Why it matters: Biden has moved to the left to accommodate party activists on crime, climate, education, immigration, and health care. His central challenge with many swing voters: Prove he didn’t move too far, too fast.
Between the lines: Biden wants many suburban voters to associate him with his persona as a white, firehouse Democrat — over a more woke 2020 Democratic primary candidate who navigated through his rivals to win his party’s nomination.
