Biden approval rating craters to ‘lowest for an elected president’ in sixth quarter

President Biden’s approval rating has plummeted to new depths with a Gallup poll finding on Friday that it is the “lowest for an elected president,” with nearly 60 percent of Americans disapproving of his job performance.

Biden is in the sixth quarter of his presidency and his mishandling of one catastrophe after another, along with his radical progressive policies, has earned him the dubious distinction of being one of the worst presidents to ever lead the country.

Gallup compared his approval numbers to data going back to April of 1954 when Dwight Eisenhower was in his first term as president.

President Biden’s job approval rating has fallen below 40 percent for the first time according to Gallup and now sits at a personal low of 38 percent. The president’s average approval rating from April 20 to July 19 was 40 percent. That is lower than former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump, who both polled at 42 percent at the same point during their terms.

“During this time, an average of 40% of Americans approved of the job he was doing as president. No president elected to his first term has had a lower sixth-quarter average than Biden, although Jimmy Carter’s and Donald Trump’s ratings were only slightly better, at 42%. Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Ronald Reagan also averaged below majority approval,” Gallup wrote.

The highest sixth quarter average approval rating Gallup has ever recorded goes to former President George W. Bush who stood at 75 percent from April to July of 2002 following the 9/11 terrorist attack in 2001. It represented a rally in support for Bush after he condemned Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, which eventually led to the U.S. and allies fighting the Gulf War against Iraq in early 1991.

The poll also indicated that Biden’s current disapproval rating is 59 percent among all voters. Among Independent voters, he hit a new low as well at 31 percent. The president tied his record low with Democrats at 78 percent.

Biden’s support among Republicans head-scratchingly ticked up from 3 percent in June to 5 percent in July.

“Biden has faced a number of challenges as president, and Americans have generally graded his work poorly for the past year, with his average approval rating as president now at 46%. Currently, his public support is the lowest it has been to date,” Gallup’s Jeffrey Jones noted.

“Democrats were already facing a tough environment in this fall’s midterms as they seek to retain their narrow majorities in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. Biden’s now weaker approval makes their odds of doing so even steeper,” he predicted.

Biden’s approval rating dropped to 50 percent amid a surge in coronavirus cases last year, the analysis pointed out.

“Since then, his public support has eroded after the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, the highest inflation in four decades, record-high gas prices, and continuing supply chain issues,” Jones noted.

Historically, it would be unlikely for Biden’s approval rating to improve during his seventh quarter. That is very bad news for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections where they are expected to lose spectacularly due to the woke agenda that they keep doubling down on no matter how unpopular it is with American voters.

Gallup polled 1,013 Americans from July 5 to July 26 for this survey. The reported margin of error is +/- 4 points.
