Biden’s approval rating plummets even further
29% of voters approve of the US president’s performance, according to a Civiqs daily tracking survey
US President Joe Biden’s approval rating fell below 30% to its lowest figure yet, according to new poll results released on Saturday.
The daily tracking survey conducted by Civiqs, an online polling and analytics company, showed 29% of registered US voters approve of how Joe Biden handles his job, 58% disapproving and 13% still unsure.
The poll also found that more than half of Americans across all age brackets as well as groups based on education and gender largely disapprove of Biden’s performance. At the same time, while 66% of white Americans do not support the incumbent, he remains popular with the black or African-American population, with 55% within that group saying they approve of Biden’s actions.
The American leader has low appeal in nearly every state, with the notable exceptions of Hawaii and Vermont. Biden’s home state of Delaware also has a low opinion of his job, with 54% disapproving of his performance.
Besides African Americans, another group that appreciates Biden’s efforts is his fellow Democrats, with 63% approval. In contrast, an overwhelming majority of Republicans (97%) rejected Biden.
The new figures come after a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll conducted in late June found that only 29% of Americans want Joe Biden to run for re-election. At the same time, the survey also put his overall approval rating at 38%.
Support for the president is plummeting, as Americans worry about soaring inflation, record gasoline prices and a looming recession. The Civiqs poll also followed a turbulent week that saw a mass shooting on July 4 which claimed the lives of seven people.
