Biden's approval rating continues declining setting new record
US President Joe Biden's approval rating hits a new low, the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll shows.
US President Joe Biden's approval rating reached a new low in the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, as the White House faces crises on multiple fronts.
Quoting US-based newspaper The Hill, to which the poll was sent exclusively, “Biden’s approval rating fell to 39% in the poll," adding that "18% of registered voters said they strongly approve of the job he’s doing, while 21% say they somewhat approve." On the other hand, "53% said they somewhat or strongly disapprove of his job performance."
His popularity rating has dropped six points since November, when it was at 45%, while his disapproval rating has risen from 51% two months earlier. His approval rating of 39% is the lowest since the poll began tracking it in March.
The Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll surveyed 1,815 registered voters from January 19 to 20. It is a cooperation between Harvard University's Center for American Political Studies and the Harris Poll.
Half of Americans unsatisfied with Biden: CBS News/YouGov
According to another poll by CBS News/YouGov, half of Americans are frustrated with President Joe Biden and want him to focus more on rising inflation. The poll was conducted from January 12 to January 14, and it polled over 2,000 individuals.
49% reported feeling disappointed, and another 40% said they were "nervous." Of those polled, only 25% reported feeling satisfied and another 25% felt "Calm."
A majority of respondents (65 %) reported that Biden should shift his focus on the economy and rising inflation.
However, 76% of those polled said their attitude would not change if he is able to enact his flagship Build Back Better legislation.
The $1.75 trillion social spending measure is stuck in Congress, with the divided Senate unable to generate enough votes to enact it.
Among other things, the plan would fund universal pre-K, boost the child tax credit, and support climate change efforts.
