Biden’s approval rating hits record low – Gallup

Biden approval rating enws

Just 37% of Americans said they are happy with the president’s performance, a new poll shows.

US President Joe Biden’s approval rating dipped to a historic low as he announced that he would run for re-election, according to a Gallup poll released on Thursday. Just 37% said they approve of the way Biden has handled the job – the lowest number reported by Gallup since his inauguration in 2021.

“Biden’s job approval has been in the low 40% range for most of the past 19 months, apart from the current reading and a 38% score last July,” Gallup said. “Only Ronald Reagan in early 1983 had a lower ninth-quarter average among elected post-World War II presidents.”

The poll was conducted from April 3-25 and completed the day Biden formally launched his re-election campaign. On Tuesday, the president’s team released their first video ad, with the slogan “Let’s finish the job.”

Biden’s most pressing challenges include the slowdown of economic growth, high inflation, and the energy crisis. According to Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index, 16% of Americans rate the economy as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’, 37% as ‘fair’, and 47% as ‘poor’, while 75% said the economy is getting worse.

Biden’s likely opponent in the general election, former President Donald Trump, declared in November 2022 that he is running for re-election. “We are living in a catastrophe. With your vote on November 5, 2024, we are going to crush Joe Biden… at the ballot box,” Trump told a crowd of supporters on Thursday.

Trump won the presidency in 2016 by beating heavily favored former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but lost to Biden in 2020.

  1. Doesn’t matter. The voting machines are in place, and the bullshit excuses for cancelling the debates are already being floated. On the big night the count inspectors will be kicked out again and the media scumbags and big tech censorship algorithms will all perform their respective functions. If there are any protests, the intelligence agencies will start framing people for terrorism again. Seems to be their main job these days.

    Seriously don’t even bother watching this garbage, it’s about as real (and predictable) as wrestlemania. The people who own us will continue to own us regardless of whichever cheesy actor occupies that pretty old mansion.

    Same goes for the clown show down here.

  2. Biden got about 20 percent of the vote when Democrats cheated and stole the 2020 election. So, whatever his polling really is, it is definitely less than 20 percent now.
