Bidens approval rating hits new low: poll – New York Post
President Biden’s approval rating has plunged to a fresh low, largely driven by discontent among his own base — as Republicans head into the 2022 midterms with historically high chances, according to a new poll released Sunday.
Almost three-quarters of respondents (70 percent) said the economy is in bad shape, including 38 percent who characterize the state of the nation’s economy as “poor.”
Biden’s overall approval of his handling of the economy sits at just 39 percent — and half of those surveyed blame the president directly for soaring inflation, according to the poll.
Meanwhile, Republicans hold their largest lead in midterm election vote preferences in ABC News/Washington Post polls dating back 40 years.
If voters headed to the polls today, 51 percent of registered voters said they would back the Republican running in their congressional district, while just 41 percent would choose the Democratic candidate.
The poll of 1,001 US residents, including 882 registered voters, was conducted from Nov. 7 through Nov. 10 via landline and cell phones.
