It’s looking worse and worse for the President.
According to the New York Post, Joe Biden’s job approval rating is 10 points lower than former President Barack Obama’s numbers at the same point in his presidency.
“According to approval ratings averages calculated by RealClearPolitics (RCP), Obama’s approval rating on Oct. 11 during his first year in office sat at 53 percent with a disapproval rating of 40 percent,” the Post reports.
“It has been over 12 years since the two started their time in the White House, and Biden is now sitting at an RCP average approval rating of 43 percent with a disapproval rating of 52.3 percent…The averages calculated by RCP are pulled from a variety of polls including ones done by Fox News, Gallup, Reuters/Ipsos, Rasmussen and Monmouth,” the report adds.
Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, the pandemic, and the chaos at the southern border have many Americans doubting the competency of this administration. Now, many within the Democratic Party are doubting Biden can bounce back.
According to Politico, during a recent focus group of Pennsylvania democrats, “All nine participants…gave Biden C- grades or lower. And their answers circled back to a similar point: The pandemic and the many ways it continues to hinder normal life is souring their views of Biden.”
“The President’s decline is alarming,” insiders are saying.
