Biden's approval ratings drop lower to 40%: poll
The Democratic president's low and gradual decrease in approval ratings even has his own Democratic party questioning his run for the 2024 presidential election.
US President Joe Biden's approval has gone down to 40% this week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll completed on Tuesday - just five weeks to go before the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
Responses were collected from 1,003 adults, including 448 Democrats and 383 Republicans.
A poll in June from The Morning Consult found that Biden's approval rating fell 20% among voters between the ages of 18 and 34 from January 2021 to June 2022. According to the poll, only 43% of young Democratic voters believe that Biden is respecting the promises that he made during his campaign, compared to 60% of average Democratic voters.
A New York Times/Siena College poll conducted in July showed that around 64% of Democratic voters say they would prefer a new standard-bearer in the 2024 presidential campaign, as voters nationwide have soured on his leadership, giving him a meager 33% job-approval rating.
Even those within his party do not have hopes of extending his term, as a CNN poll reveals that 75% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters want the party to nominate someone in the 2024 election other than President Joe Biden.
