The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll is out —and it ain’t great for Joe.
According to Reuters, President Biden is in an all out freefall, with his public approval numbers down for the fourth straight week in a row. Biden is currently sitting at 36% approval —abysmal by any measure.
The president’s approval rating has stayed below 50% since August, a warning sign that his Democratic Party could lose control of at least one chamber of the U.S. Congress in the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
Among his own party, Biden’s approval rating remains largely unchanged since last week – at 73% compared to 74% on June 15. In August, 85% of Democrats approved of Biden’s performance.
But among Republicans, Biden’s rating slipped to 7% compared to 11% on June 15. Only 18% of Americans think the country is headed in the right direction.
Biden’s approval rating is approaching – but has not yet reached – the lowest levels seen by his predecessor, Donald Trump, who had a 33% approval rating in December 2017.
Biden's approval rating fell for a fourth straight week to 36%, matching its lowest level in @IpsosReuters poll, and approaching Trump's low of 33% during his own presidency. @rosehorowitch https://t.co/1qsTuyPrDd
