Biden’s approval rating drops to a new low of 33% on concerns about his handling of COVID, economy: poll shows. If President Joe Biden was out to prove he could become the worst President of the United States, then he’s obviously on track. No President since world war two has done worse than Joe Biden.
The poll, conducted from Jan. 7 through Jan. 10 and released Wednesday, found that 33% of all 1,313 adults surveyed approve of Biden’s job performance, while 53% disapprove. Ten percent did not offer an opinion. The poll has a margin of error of 2.7 percentage points. When isolating just registered voters, Biden’s approval rating improves slightly to 35%.
Biden’s dismal numbers come as inflation has soared to a 39-year high and COVID-19 cases, which were on the decline last summer, have spiked to an all-time high amid the rise of the highly contagious omicron variant. Biden, who is nearing his first full year in office, campaigned on getting the pandemic under control and reviving the economy.
The poll found wavering support among Biden’s own party, with 75% of Democrats approving of Biden’s job performance and 14% of Democrats disapproving. More than half of political independents, 57%, said they disapprove of Biden’s job performance, while just 25%in of that crucial voting bloc said they approve. Biden is getting virtually no crossover support from Republicans, with 95% saying they disapprove of his job and 2% approving.
Speaking on Watters World over at Fox, Kellyann Conway, a former adviser to former President Donald Trump said Voters see the President as a product of Washington’s establishment with 47 years of experience in his belt, yet doing terribly.
KELLYANNE CONWAY: Gallup today came out with a poll that showed since June, Joe Biden’s approval rating among Independents has cratered by 21 points. Think about that. Just three or four months, it’s gone down 21 points. …
Independents call themselves independent because they’re paying attention to politics, not because they’re not. They refuse to declare allegiance to either party. They declare independence from both parties, and they don’t like Washington.
They don’t like politicians to begin with. And they look at Joe Biden now, and they don’t see someone who’s able to leverage 47 years in Washington. They see someone who is a product of 47 years in Washington.
And the Democrats don’t have a messaging problem, they don’t have a messenger problem. They have a fact problem. They’re trying to foist on the rest of us trillions of dollars in spending that, according to the polls, people don’t want.
Gallup’s latest polling conducted from October 1 to 19 shows the president’s approval rating among voters who don’t identify with either major political party has plummeted by double digits since June. Only about a third (34 percent) of independents said they approve of Biden—a drop of 21 percentage points since the same survey was carried out four months back.
Furthermore, Biden’s approval among independents has dropped 9 points since August. Since February, when Gallup first queried voters on their approval or disapproval of Biden’s presidency, his support has been nearly cut in half among independents. It stood at 61 percent at the outset of his presidency and has since dipped precipitously to just 34 percent in October.
Meanwhile, Biden’s overall approval rating among all voters stands at 42 percent. That’s also a double-digit (14 percent) decline since June when it stood at 56 percent. In February, 56 percent of Americans approved of Biden.
Even among Democrats Biden’s approval has slumped significantly, dipping from 98 percent at the outset of his presidency to 92 percent now. The Trump hate that led to voting rigging that allowed Biden in the White House is beginning to clear and this is letting people see the man for who he is.
Although Biden started out his presidency with significant public support and popularity, a series of crises have plagued the administration. The president’s handling of those crises and leadership of the country appears to have frustrated many voters.
