RealClearPolitics, a website that averages many independent polls on how the public feels about the president, reports that 80-year-old Joe Biden’s approval rating is back at 41%. Quinnipiac had the lowest rating at 36%.
“Meanwhile, Biden’s approval rating in the RCP Average has slid back to 41.0%, the lowest score since August 20,” wrote Tom Bevan, co-founder, and president of RealClearPolitics. According to a Quinnipiac survey from January, Biden had a 33 percent approval rating and a 53 percent disapproval rating for his job performance.
In February, just as the president offered the first round of financial aid for Ukraine in their conflict with Russia, an ABC News and Washington Post survey put Biden’s popularity rating at 37%.
Only 21% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 approved of Biden’s performance in a subsequent Quinnipiac poll conducted in April. Biden was doing particularly poorly among young Americans. In July, RealClearPolitics reported that Biden’s average was 41%.
A July New York Times/Siena College poll revealed that only 1% of respondents between the ages of 18 and 29 “strongly approved” of Biden’s performance, reflecting a continued lack of support from young voters.
53 percent of respondents surveyed in a September Emerson College study disapproved of Biden, according to the results. The same poll showed that Trump would win a hypothetical election against Biden in 2024 with 44 percent of the vote to Biden’s 41 percent.
On November 8, the day of the midterm elections, a CBS exit poll revealed that 46% of Americans believed Joe Biden’s actions had negatively impacted the nation.
Under Joe Biden’s leadership, the nation has consistently seen record-high inflation, supply chain problems that have never been seen before, and citizens who are indebted to record levels.
When President Joe Biden assumed office, he drastically relaxed border security measures, sparking a humanitarian crisis that has seen record-breaking numbers of unauthorized immigrants rush into the country month after month.
Even early this year, in March, reports were circulating about it being the 12th month in a row of increased inflation consumer prices rising 8.5 percent, which is a high not seen in four decade
According to information made public by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Tuesday, the consumer price index—which tracks changes in consumer prices for things like food, energy, and rent—rose 1.2 percent from February.
Fox Business reported the 12-month spike in inflation is the greatest since December 1981, when it increased by 8.9 percent. The increase comes after months of nearly constant record-breaking high inflation. The cost of food jumped 1% in March, and it has increased 8.8% in the past year.
Energy costs increased by 11% in March alone and by 32% over the previous year, primarily due to increases in gasoline and fuel oil prices at the beginning of the month as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the discussion of outlawing Russian oil imports.
Over the past 12 months, the price of gasoline has increased by 48 percent and by 18.3 percent, respectively, while the price of fuel oil has increased by 22.3 and 70.1 percent. The rate of inflation for goods outside of the erratic food and energy categories increased by 0.3% in March, rising to 6.5% over the previous 12 months, the highest level since August 1982.
