A recent Fox News national poll of registered voters found that 58% believe that the nation is worse off now than a year prior, and 56% disapprove of President Biden's job performance.

Just 35% felt that the nation is better off now than a year back, while only 43% approve of Biden's job performance.

The poll is bad news for Biden, who is slated to deliver his State of the Union address next week.

While 41% strongly disapprove of Biden's job performance, 15% somewhat disapprove, 25% somewhat approve, and only 18% approve strongly.

Biden is also underwater on specific issues, with a whopping 61% disapproving of how the president is dealing with the economy, 62% disapproving on immigration, 59% disapproving on crime, 58% disapproving on foreign policy, and 51% disapproving on COVID-19.

But not only has Biden earned poor grades on his job performance across the board, 53% felt that he lacks the mental fitness to effectively execute his role as president.

"Conducted February 19-22, 2022 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R), this Fox News national poll includes interviews among 1,001 registered voters who were randomly selected from a national voter file and spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones," the poll notes.

Biden's upcoming State of the Union address will come as Americans continue to endure rapidly rising prices.

Russia's recent invasion of Ukraine is also likely to cast a pall over the president's speech.
