Polls show Biden’s approval rating has hit a record low

President Joe Biden made headlines last month after he accidentally fell off his bicycle while on vacation with the first lady in Delaware.

Yet as the Washington Examiner pointed out in an article published this weekend, Biden has had a much bigger fall in his poll numbers, and it’s not clear how he can recover. 

Columnist Paul Bedard noted that “Biden’s steady, yearlong decline in voter approval numbers has fallen so low that he has tied former President Jimmy Carter’s all-time Gallup bottom and appears headed to sink under former President Richard Nixon’s resignation-day approval rating, the worst in decades.”

New poll shows Biden at 29%

As evidence, Bedard cited a new Civiqs poll which put the president’s job approval rating at an all-time low of just 29%.

Although those results are considered to be something of an outlier, other surveys also put Biden’s approval rating below 40%.

Polls carried out by Insider Advantage and Rasmussen Reports both gave the president a 37% rating while a Reuters/Ipsos survey put the figure at 36%.

Meanwhile, FiveThirtyEight’s polling aggregator shows Biden’s average approval rating as being 38.4%, nearly four percentage points lower than former President Donald Trump was at this juncture in his presidency.

Democrat approval down to 65%

What is perhaps most alarming for Biden is that his low approval rating isn’t just due to dissatisfaction among Republicans and independent voters, as many in his own party have also lost patience with him.

That’s evident from an earlier Rasmussen poll, which showed that his approval rating among Democrats stood at just 65%.

Biden’s low approval ratings come as many Americans are struggling with escalating inflation. According to a website run by the American Automobile Association (AAA), a gallon of regular gasoline currently costs over $1.50 more than it did a year ago.
