Biden’s job approval rating fell to 38% since he was elected president a little more than 17 months ago, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls on Wednesday. 57.5% disapprove, resulting in a 19.5-point split.
Polling data for President Joe Biden reached a new low.
Tom Bevan, co-founder and president of RealClearPolitics, tweeted that “Biden approval at a new low in RCP Average, disapproval at a new high,”

Biden’s economic stats are also dismal at a time when the economy is suffering from rising inflation and high gas prices. According to the RCP average, 33.4% of respondents approved of his job performance in that area, while 62% disapproved.
Although the statistics on how Biden handled foreign affairs, immigration, and the COVID-19 epidemic are not quite as awful, the general consensus on the country’s path is bleak.
According to the average, 72.5% think the nation is moving in the wrong way, while only 20.3% think it is.
Tonight @77WABCradio: Pride in #America sadly hits a new record low in the polls… WHO or WHAT do you blame for this decline in our country? PLUS, #soccer star #meganrapinoe, who knelt during #anthem, is now receiving prestigious #MedalofFreedom from #Biden! Taking YOUR Calls!

How popular is Biden overall compared to former President Donald Trump, who was his immediate predecessor? In December 2017, Trump’s approval ratings fell to a low of 37%, while his disapproval ratings rose to 58.1%.
Right after the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, the Republican experienced a roughly equal dip in his average ratings at the end of his presidency.
