Sinking numbers show Biden approval rating dip to historic new low

Joe Biden achieved a first for his presidency but it is not likely something he will be celebrating.

According to an average of recent national surveys, Biden’s approval rating continued its nosedive and fell below 40% for the first time since he took office.

As his administration continues to try to put out fires on multiple fronts and grapples with issues like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the disaster at the southern border, and the Russian threat on the Ukraine border, the president is bleeding support and, instead, stoking frustration with Americans.

An average of all the most recent national polls compiled by Real Clear Politics showed Biden’s approval at 39% and his disapproval at 54%.

The sinking numbers showed the extent of dissatisfaction the nation is feeling with the president’s handling of the economy, immigration and foreign policy as well as the handling of the coronavirus.

The Real Clear Politics numbers are based on an average of polls including Economist/YouGov, Rasmussen Reports, Politico/Morning Consult, IBD/TIPP, Reuters/Ipsos, Monmouth, Insider Advantage and Harvard-Harris.

The only area surveyed in which BIden came in with more than a 40% rating was in his response to the pandemic, with 43.6% of those surveyed approving and 52% disapproving.

On the economy, Biden scored 38.3% approval with a 56.3% disapproval rating and on foreign policy, 37.2% of those polled approve of Biden’s job while 53% disapprove. The RCP average also found that, in the area of immigration, 33.3% of respondents approve of the job Biden is doing while 56% disapprove.

The latest dismal ratings for the Biden presidency sparked much head-shaking on social media where many users wondered just who the 39% are who still approve of the job he is doing.
