President Joe Biden’s approval rating just hit a new low, Breitbart reports.
This particular approval rating comes from Rasmussen Reports. According to the pollster’s index history of Biden’s approval ratings, on September 27, 2021, Biden achieved an approval rating of only 40 percent.
Biden has been flirting with such an approval rating for some time now, hitting 42 percent, for example, on September 24th. But, this is the first time the pollster has him as low as 40 percent.
On the flip side of the coin, 58 percent of participants disapprove of Biden’s job performance. Of this 58 percent, 50 percent disapprove “strongly.” And, of the 40 percent of participants that approve of Biden’s job performance, only 21 percent said that they “strongly approve.”
Biden’s overall numbers
Not only is this 40 percent Biden’s lowest approval rating with Rasmussen, but it is also one of the lowest approval ratings that he, as president, has received on any poll.
Real Clear Politics currently has Biden’s approval rating at 45.4 percent. This figure is the average of all of the recent job performance polls, including Rassmussen’s.
Some other poor polls results that are included in the average are ones from Quinnipiac, which has Biden’s approval at only 44 percent, Reuters, which also has it at 44 percent, and Gallup, which has it at 43 percent. Biden’s best recent poll comes from Fox News, which has his approval at 50 percent.
Overall, Real Clear Politics has Biden’s net approval at -5.2 percent. This is the difference between Biden’s average approval, 45.4 percent, and his average disapproval, 50.6 percent.
The downward trend
Biden’s poll numbers have been trending downwards now for months. The tumble particularly picked up pace after the botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Reports indicate that there are still U.S. citizens trapped in Afghanistan.
Biden also has been losing support in what has been one of his strongest areas, the coronavirus. The polls would suggest that many Americans, particularly Black Americans, are not happy with Biden’s latest coronavirus vaccine mandate.
On top of this, there is the southern border crisis, which continues, and there are the massive spending proposals that Biden and the Democrats are currently trying to push through Congress despite the flailing American economy.
Biden has tried to blame as much of this as he could on former President Donald Trump. And, Biden insists that he will have the country back on track by the end of 2021. Given that we are about to enter October and there are no signs that any of these problems are getting better, we doubt this.
