According to the latest Fox News national survey, President Joe Biden’s approval rating has remained low, with only 44% of people approving of his job performance and 56% disapproving.
Despite several policy rollouts, the president’s approval has remained stagnant, with Republican pollster Daron Shaw attributing the poor rating to the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle and the onset of hyperinflation.
The president’s approval rating is especially low among several key voting groups, including women, voters aged 45 and older, suburban voters, rural voters, and Democrats. Independents have improved from Biden’s low of 26% last August, with a current approval rating of 35%. Unfortunately for the president, a majority of voters disapprove of his handling of national security, foreign policy, border security, and the economy.
While the president has implemented policies that have received broad support from voters, such as the executive order requiring criminal background checks on gun buyers and the Willow Project, more work needs to be done to improve his approval rating. It will be interesting to see how this rating affects the outcome of the midterms.
