In a video uploaded online earlier this week, President Joe Biden declared his intention to run for reelection. However, a survey conducted just days afterwards should cause him to reconsider.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Biden’s approval rating is at its lowest point during his administration, at a pitiful 37 percent, down from his previous low of 38 percent.
“Biden’s job approval has been in the low 40% range for most of the past 19 months, apart from the current reading and a 38% score last July,” the polling firm said in a press release.
According to Fox News Digital, 59 percent of adults voiced their dissatisfaction.
After originally reaching a peak of 57 percent when he first started office in January 2021, Biden’s approval rating has hovered in the low 40s for the past 19 months. According to the most recent poll, he has a lower average approval rating (39.7 percent) than outgoing President Donald Trump, who had a rating of 41.6 percent for the same time period.
“When split by political party affiliation, 83% of Democrats, 31% of independents and 4% of Republicans said they approved of Biden’s job performance. Gallup noted that the 31% approval from independents ties his lowest score from the group, and is down nine percentage points from February,” the report continued.
According to the study, the American public’s deteriorating opinion of the economy is related to President Biden’s job approval rating. Only 16 percent of those surveyed thought the economy was excellent or good, while 37 percent thought it was “only fair,” and 47 percent said it was poor, up from the 43 percent who said the same thing in March.
Gallup added the following:
Only Ronald Reagan in early 1983 had a lower ninth-quarter average among elected post-World War II presidents. Reagan’s low ratings came during a period when the unemployment rate exceeded 10% after the 1981-1982 economic recession.
Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump had slightly better approval ratings than Biden and Reagan; both were just above 40%. Four presidents, including George H.W. Bush, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy and George W. Bush, averaged better than 60% approval during their ninth quarters in office.
Citing the survey’s results, Fox News Digital added that “Just 19% say the economy is getting better, but 75% say it is getting worse.”
On the day that Biden declared his intention to seek re-election as president, a survey was taken. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer, and Marianne Williamson, a self-help author, spiritual leader, and 2020 presidential candidate, are Biden’s main rivals.
But according to other surveys, the majority of his own party members do not want him to run for office again.
Two-thirds of respondents to a CNN poll conducted by SSRS in March said they did not want Biden to run for office again. Furthermore, according to the poll, Biden’s approval rating may have dropped after Democrats outperformed expectations in the 2022 elections. The poll, however, was primarily completed before to the news of the indictment of former President Donald Trump, so it doesn’t represent any changes in public opinion as a result of that development, according to the Daily Wire.
At the time, Biden had a 42 percent approval rating and a 57 percent disapproval rating. In January, he had a 45 percent favor rating and a 55 percent disapproval rating.
The study also revealed that when it comes to Americans who think Biden should be re-elected, his approval ratings are substantially lower. Only 32% of Americans think he deserves a second term in office, while 67% disagree. Nevertheless, among registered voters, Biden’s numbers are a little better, with 36% saying he deserves another term and 61% disagreeing.
Additionally, a majority of Democrats and independents who lean Democratic oppose Biden’s bid for reelection. According to the study, 44% of this group preferred Biden as the Democratic Party’s contender for the 2024 presidential election, while 54% believed that someone else ought to be given the chance, according to the Daily Wire, which reported the poll’s findings.
