Biden’s Approval Rating Way Down As He Wrestles With Immigration, The Economy, And More

A recent poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research has revealed that only 33 percent of American adults approve of President Biden’s handling of the economy.

Furthermore, only 24 percent believe that the national economic conditions are in good shape under his leadership.

The release of these lackluster approval numbers comes as President Biden returned from the G7 summit in Hiroshima, Japan, where the focus was primarily on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine rather than the pressing domestic issues quietly unsettling American voters.

Biden faces ‘solid headwinds’ while voters clamor for impeachment

Some voters have gone so far as to suggest that President Biden, at the age of 80, should face impeachment proceedings due to the perceived mishandling of his office, as reported by Breitbart News.

The poll results indicate that President Biden is facing solid headwinds even before he embarks on his campaign to seek reelection.

Biden’s approval ratings sink in the face of economic challenges and policy concerns

The approval of his handling of the economy remains low during high inflation, a challenging housing market, and concerns about a potential U.S. government debt default.

The public sentiment is also pessimistic regarding Biden’s efforts on gun policy and immigration, with only 31 percent expressing approval of his performance in these crucial areas.

Overall, 40 percent of respondents stated their approval of President Biden’s job performance, consistent with his approval rating over the past year and a half.

Democrats remain lukewarm but optimistic about the economy

What is particularly concerning for Biden is that he underperforms on the economy, even among his fellow Democrats.

While 61 percent of Democrats approve of his overall job performance, only 75 percent approve of his handling of the economy.

Despite Democrats’ lukewarm enthusiasm about the economy under Biden’s watch, they are still more likely than Republicans to believe that the country is headed in the right direction (36 percent versus seven percent) and to rate the economy as good (41 percent versus seven percent).
