Another bad poll for Joe.
The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research found that President Biden has hit the lowest approval rating of his presidency: 39%. Only 2 in 10 adults say the country is on the right track or the economy is good —that’s down from about 3 in 10 in April.
But the biggest shock —the fall off in support from Democrats. Just 33% of Dems say the country is headed in the right direction, down from 49% in April.

The findings reflect a widespread sense of exasperation in a country facing a cascade of challenges ranging from inflation, gun violence, and a sudden shortage of baby formula to a persistent pandemic.
“I don’t know how much worse it can get,” said Milan Ramsey, a 29-year-old high school counselor and Democrat in Santa Monica, California, who with her husband had to move into her parents’ house to raise their infant son.
“He hasn’t delivered on any of the promises. I feel like the stimulus checks came out and that was the last win of his administration,” Ramsey said of Biden. “I think he’s tired — and I don’t blame him, I’d be tired too at his age with the career he’s had.”
The percentage of Democrats who say Biden’s policies have done more to help dipped from 45% to 37%, though just 18% say they’ve done more to hurt; 44% say they’ve made no difference.
