Joe Biden’s Approval Drops to 50%, Lowest for Him to Date: Gallup Poll
Poll marks the first time he has less-than majority approval among independents
Democrat Joe Biden's job approval rating has dropped from 56% in June to just 50%, according to reports.
Before July, Biden's ratings haven't shown any significant variation since he entered office.
The current figures mark the "lowest measured for him to date," a new Gallup poll revealed.
“Currently, 90% of Democrats, 12% of Republicans, and 48% of independents approve of the job Biden is doing."
"His ratings among Democrats and independents are the lowest to date among those groups."
"The new poll marks the first time he has less-than majority approval among independents,” Gallup said.
“The new rating is from a July 6-21 Gallup poll, which also finds that 45% of U.S. adults disapprove of Biden‘s performance and 5% do not have an opinion,” the pollster noted.
The poll analysis said that changing circumstances around the nation also play a role.
Despite positive developments in the economy and the stock market, consumers are paying higher prices.
The analysis concluded:
“Biden‘s approval rating is showing the first signs of meaningful decline. If the lower ratings persist, it could indicate his ‘honeymoon’ period is over."
"Because Republicans have been unlikely to support him from the beginning of his presidency, changes in his approval are likely to come from Democrats’ and independents’ evaluations of him. That is what has occurred now, with both groups slightly less positive toward Biden than they have been to this point."
Neon Nettle reported last week that Donald Trump is more popular with American voters than Democrat Biden; according to a recent Rasmussen poll
Those who have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Biden amounted to 51 percent, compared to 52 percent of voters having a favorable opinion of Trump.
More people have an unfavorable view of Biden (48 percent) than Trump (46 percent).
But former President Barrack Obama is more popular with voters than Trump and Biden.
“Comparing voter opinions of Biden and his two predecessors across demographic categories, the current president, suffers from more intense disapproval by Republicans and doesn’t have the kind of strong support from black voters that benefitted Obama," the poll report said.
