Recent surveys indicate that the American electorate disapproves of President Joe Biden, and the Biden administration has been forced to take note of the staggering numbers.
Thus, Democrats are under pressure.
Gallup, one of the country’s leading polling organizations, said that Biden’s third-quarter approval rating of 38% was the lowest ever for a president.
According to statistics cited by The Daily Wire, the president’s current popularity rating is the lowest of his administration, and his average approval rating for the first 15 months of his term is the lowest of any president in the polling firm’s 74-year history.
“Biden’s honeymoon time ended a year ago when his approval rating dipped to 50 percent in the wake of an increase in U.S. coronavirus infections.
Since then, the messy U.S. exit from Afghanistan, the greatest inflation in four decades, record-high petrol prices, and ongoing supply chain concerns have reduced his popular support, according to a Gallup press release.
“No president elected to his first term has had a lower average in the sixth quarter than Biden, while Jimmy Carter’s and Donald Trump’s ratings were only marginally higher, at 42 percent.
Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Ronald Reagan also averaged below majority approval, according to the press release.
While Biden’s popularity rating is 38 percent, his disapproval rating is 59 percent, according to Gallup.
In addition, respondents had considerably more unfavorable than positive emotions about Biden, with 45 percent strongly disapproving of the job he is doing compared to only 14 percent who mildly disagree.
Similarly, just 13 percent of respondents highly approve of Biden, and 25 percent approve only mildly.
The new Gallup numbers coincide with the president’s plummeting approval ratings in previous recent polls.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Biden’s support has plummeted to 36.8 percent, while FiveThirtyEight’s aggregate polling data indicates that his approval touched a historic low of 37.5 percent.

His rating was negatively affected by recent New York Times/Siena College and Quinnipiac polls, both of which had him at just 33 percent approval.
Several other surveys have put him in the mid-30s.
His approval has since rebounded slightly, however: He currently is at 38.9 percent average approval in RealClearPolitics, while he’s at around 39.9 percent at FiveThirtyEight, though those averages are still considered very low. CONTINUE READING…
