Biden's Approval Rating slips again this Week
Reuters/Ipsos polling indicates a slip in Biden's approval rating after it has edged up slightly in the previous weeks...
New polling conducted this week has indicated a poor sign for President Biden as his public approval rating has fallen. A two-day national poll conducted by Reuters and Ipsos finds that 38% of Americans in the United States approve of President Biden’s performance.
Last week, President Biden’s approval rating hit 41%. Most of the time during the last few months of his presidency the ratings have been below 40%. With the Democrats expected to lose the House and Senate this midterm election, this spells danger for the general Democratic party as even with control of just the House, Republicans can put blockages on Biden’s planning.
For over a year in total now, Biden’s approval rating has floated under 50% as inflation ravaged homes and the economy remains scarred by the Covid pandemic. In May specifically, Biden’s approval rating hit its lowest at 36%. When asked further, what the biggest issues were in the United States, people listed the economy as their top concern. Republicans added issues such as immigration and crime as their top concern.
Democrats listed that the environment was edging to becoming a top ten issue as well as the end of the national right of abortions.
The polling was conducted with 1,005 adults in the United States made of 449 Democrats and 357 Republicans. The credibility interval was 4%.
