Additionally, 46 percent of respondents said the stock market is doing “not so good” or “poor” despite one of the market's best years in decades, according to CNBC, as the S&P 500 completed the year up 26.89 percent.

Regarding vaccine mandates, the survey also indicated that 50 percent said Biden had gone too far. Twenty-six percent said the administration had the right approach, and 24 percent said it had not gone far enough.
