If you feel less safe walking the streets and worse off financially than you did four years ago, you are not alone.

Six in 10 Americans think the country has become more dangerous since President Joe Biden entered office, and a measly 14 percent think his administration has done a good job tackling crime.

Some 56 percent of Americans, including 51 percent of independent voters, also think the economy has gotten worse in another damning indictment of Biden’s leadership.

The results of a DailyMail.com/J.L. Partners poll comes as retail stores close in major cities because of rampant shoplifting and days after a looting spree hit Philadelphia.

The majority of Americans feel less safe now than they did when President Joe Biden came into office and don’t think he has done a good enough job tackling crime, a new DailyMail.com poll reveals

Last month, the U.S. also reached the grim milestone of 500 mass shootings in a year for the third time.

Of 1,000 likely voters polled, just one in 10 said they feel more safe walking the streets since Biden was inaugurated in January 2021.

Just 28 percent of independent voters – a group crucial for Biden to win in 2024 – gave the White House good marks for dealing with crime.

The results will pile the pressure on Biden, who faces dire approval ratings and constant questions about his age.

His gamble to convince the public that he has turned the economy around with ‘Bidenomics’ also doesn’t seem to be paying off.

Democrats are reportedly trying to pressure the White House to change its message as the U.S. gradually recover from historic inflation.

The president has also kept up his war on firearms with the creation of a federal gun violence prevention office.

But his moves are struggling to appeal to a skeptical American public who think violence is becoming more of a problem on their doorstgep. 

‘There is no doubt that Donald Trump energizes the Democratic base to turn out in support of Joe Biden,’ Scarlett Maguire, Director at J,L, Partners said

‘However, it would be a mistake for the incumbent president to think he can rely on Trump’s divisiveness and extreme unpopularity with part of the electorate to deliver a second term in office.

‘With doubts about Biden’s leadership continuing to grow, 2024 may well turn into a referendum on his presidential record. 

‘If so, he would be in big trouble. Six in 10 Americans feel less safe on the streets than they did four years ago, and only one in 10 Americans feel it’s got safer. 

‘Let’s put that into context: only one out of 10 people you walk past in the street every day think that street is safer than it was four years ago. That is a record Biden will have to carry.’

Trump told California’s Republican Convention on Friday that he would stop the ‘pillaging and theft’, and vowed to shoot looters. 

‘Very simply,’ the ex-president explained, ‘if you rob a store, you can fully expect to be shot as you are leaving that store. Shot.’ 

The crowd of about 1,500 Republicans responded to the proposal with chants of: ‘Trump!’ 

His comments came 48 hours after shocking footage emerged of stores in Philadelphia being ransacked.

Dayjia Blackwell, 21, who calls herself ‘Meatball’, livestreamed her crime spree.

It was the latest shocking indictment of how cities and local businesses are being decimated. 

Retail giants throughout the US are shuttering stores and incurring critical losses due to shoplifting,

Target said last week it was closing nine retail stores across the US because theft and crime were contributing to ‘unsustainable business performance’.

And CVS said it would close 900 stores by the end of 2024.

According to a recent survey by the National Retail Federation, inventory shrink, or unaccounted losses of stock, cost American retailers an estimated $112 billion in 2022, or around 1.6 percent of their total sales.

And with up to 70 percent of shrink accounted for by theft, it means retailers lost approximately $78.4 billion to shoplifters last year.

A survey released by WalletHub in April found murder rates in America’s biggest cities have jumped by 10 percent.

Memphis, New Orleans, and Richmond rank as America’s homicide hotspots, with scholars linking their rising murder rates to soft-on-crime Democratic leadership and low police morale.

New Yorkers are also increasingly alarmed by crime, with millions saying with millions saying they’ve never been this worried before and are turning to guns, pepper sprays and self-defense classes to make themselves feel safer.

Siena College Research Institute (SCRI) polling revealed shocking levels of anxiety across the Empire State, where 87 percent say crime is a serious problem and 61 percent worry about becoming a victim themselves.

The center of the looting, Philadelphia, has also seen an uptick in crime.

Latest figures, which are up until last Sunday, show how there has been 302 homicides in the city so far this year.

There has also been 402 reported rapes, 58,759 cases of property crime, 3,701 cases of aggravated assaults and 1,314 shooting victims.

The city experienced two flash mob robbery incidents last week as masked looters ransacked Footlocker, Apple, Lululemon and a closed liquor stores.
