This week, President Joe Biden received additional bad news as he continues to deal with a succession of escalating foreign and domestic situations.
“President Joe Biden’s job performance rating has mostly held steady for more than a year and currently stands at 44% approve vs. 56% disapprove in the latest Fox News national survey. That’s net negative by 12 points. The last time that he received positive marks was September 2021, and that was by 1 point (50%-49%),” Fox News reported.
“Approval of the president hovers at a low point among several key voting groups, including women (43% now vs. 42% low), voters ages 45+ (41% vs. 39% low), suburban voters (41% vs. 39% low), rural voters (31% vs. 30% low) and Democrats (81% vs. 78% low) – Democratic men in particular (79% vs. 78% low). He’s at a low mark of 41% approval among suburban women,” the report added.
A majority of respondents disapprove of Biden’s performance on these key issues, according to the poll: 53% on national security, 54% on foreign policy, 60% on border security, and 64% on the economy.
“Biden’s numbers cratered in the fall of 2021 after the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle and the onset of hyperinflation,” said Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll with Democrat Chris Anderson. “Since then, his approval has barely moved, despite a midterm election, economic ups and downs, and several legislative policy rollouts.”
According to a new poll conducted by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, President Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 38%, down from 45% in February and 41% in January. This brings his approval rating perilously near to its lowest point during his presidency, when only 36 percent of people approved of his job performance in July 2021, as rising prices for gasoline, groceries, and other goods impacted the nation.
According to the poll, the economy is the most significant factor in the Biden administration’s low approval rating. Fewer than one-quarter of the population believes that the national economy is thriving or that the country is on the correct track. The Biden administration is also focusing on matters such as national security and healthcare.
Unsurprisingly, a majority of Republicans disapproved of Biden’s job performance, including his management of the economy, whereas Democrats were more favorable. According to the survey, 63 percent of Democrats approved of his economic management, and 76 percent approved of his presidency.
The Washington Examiner noted, citing a poll, that these numbers are declining among Democrats under the age of 45, possibly due to Biden’s failure to accomplish his environmental protection promises, such as his approval of the Willow project in Alaska.
As concerns about a potential recession increase, particularly following the failure of Silicon Valley Bank, the Biden administration struggles to maintain stability, while the president mulls over when to disclose his plans for the 2024 presidential election. If Biden ultimately decides to run for re-election, as is widely predicted, the economy is expected to play a significant role in determining the outcome of the election, the outlet noted.
