Biden’s biggest gaffes and failures after one year in office.

ON January 20, 2021, Joe Biden vowed to overcome Covid and pledged America would "lead by example" in the world following years of unpredictability during the Trump administration

But, during his first year in office, the US has been blighted by foreign policy blunders in Afghanistan and is facing the prospect of a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

And back home, the US is in a fight against the highly transmissible Omicron Covid-19 variant.

Polling paints a grim picture for the Biden administration as 62 percent disapprove of the president’s handling of the economy, while 69 percent say the White House’s Covid messaging has been confusing.

And, US party preferences appear to have shifted as 47 percent say they are either strong or lean Republican - a seven-point rise compared to the first quarter of 2021, according to Gallup.

Meanwhile, only 42 percent of Americans identify themselves as strong or lean Democrats, down from 49 percent at the start of 2021.

The last time the GOP held a five-point lead in party advantage was 1995 when they had just taken control of the House for the first time since the 1950s.
