President Joe Biden’s approval rating continues to reach new lows, with polling data showing that the president is now at a measly 40 percent approval rating.
Biden’s poor approval numbers come as gas prices continue to pain Americans’ wallets, and from perceived weakness on the world stage in the face of Russian aggression.
The poll, conducted by Reuters/Ipsos, found that 40 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s performance, with 54 percent saying they disapprove.
Poll respondents said that the economy was their top concern, followed by war and foreign conflicts.
“Americans remain polarized under his presidency. While 77% of self-identified Democrats said they approved of his job performance, only 10% of self-identified Republicans and 27% of independents gave him a positive rating,” reports Reuters.
Last month, an ABC News/Washington Post poll found that Biden’s approval rating was at 37 percent, with a Quinnipiac University poll showing that his approval rating was at just 33 percent.
“The Reuters/Ipsos poll is conducted online in English throughout the United States. The latest poll gathered responses from a total of 1,005 adults, including 432 Democrats and 366 Republicans. It has a credibility interval – a measure of precision – of 4 percentage points.”
The poll was conducted on March 21 and 22.
