Biden’s approval rating has been steadily dropping due to a variety of factors.
Biden’s approval rating began to drop in August when he led the deadly Afghanistan withdrawal that left hundreds if not thousands of American citizens stranded behind enemy lines.
Biden’s 40-year-high inflation and record-high gas prices have also been a factor in the president’s diminishing approval rating.
Polling shows the economy has been the most important issue for voters for 43 straight weeks.
In recent months, Biden has also come under fire for his cognitive state.
A majority of voters believe Biden is unfit to be president and doubt his mental ability.
Sixty-two percent say he is not fit to be president because he is too old.
Fifty-nine percent are worried about Biden's mental and physical fitness.
