How Far Has Biden’s Ratings Tanked?
This week, President Joe Biden’s approval rating hit a new low of 40 percent, amidst gas price woes, inflation, and the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, marking a warning sign for Democrats ahead of the fast approaching 2022 midterm elections.
In a poll conducted by Reuters/Ipsos, it found that just 40 percent approve of Biden’s job performance, and that 54 percent disapprove.
77 percent of Democrats said that they approve of his Biden’s performance, while only 10 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of independents responded as such.
The poll, conducted over two days, March 21 and 22, fell three points from the week prior, which reportedly follows a similar trajectory his predecessor, Donald Trump, took, hitting 40 percent in mid-March in his second year in office.
