Biden expressed fears that he would be compared to one-term Democratic President Jimmy Carter. Carter failed to get a second term in office due to skyrocketing inflation and perceived weakness in foreign policy. Biden faces many of the same issues.

The result is plunging morale amid fears that a string of crises is painting him as the worst Democratic president since Jimmy Carter’s calamitous time in office.
