Poll: Biden approval hits low, 37.4%

According to the tracker and opinion poll analyzer FiveThirtyEight, the approval rating of Vice President Joe Biden has reached its lowest point ever, which is a dismal 37.4%.

The disapproval rate, on the other hand, is a concerning 56.6 percent, something that is devastating for the candidate on the campaign trail, as Newsman reported.

In addition to the typical Republican derision, progressives have criticized the White House for its response to Israel's handling of the conflict in Gaza in the aftermath of Hamas' strike on October 7, according to Business Insider.

The Fall Off

The polling indicates symptoms of falling support among voters amongst people of color and minority groups.

After the turbulent withdrawal of the United States from Afghanistan, Biden's approval began to decline, and the story of a spiral became more pronounced from there.

Gallup reported that President Biden had a 49% approval rating at the time of the Taliban's quick advance into Kabul, the capital city of Afghanistan, on August 15, 2021.

This occurred just a weekend after the United States military withdrew its personnel from Afghanistan. It had only been seven months since he had taken office as president.

Continued Downturn

It was one month later when his approval rating dropped to 43%, at the start of the downward spiral.

Since he left office in the wake of the Capitol riot, former President Donald Trump's approval rating has increased, which is a stark contrast to the situation Biden finds himself in.

He is facing a potentially frustrating period after becoming the first-ever former president to be convicted of a felony, and according to the weighted average of FiveThirtyEight, Trump has a current approval rating of 41.6%.

Previous Elections

According to a report by Business Insider, Gallup discovered in 2016 that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who had previously served as Secretary of State, were the least popular contenders for the presidency since the company began measuring popularity from 1956.

He had the lowest approval rating in that amount of time in decades, according to Gallup, during the most recent quarter of Biden's presidency, which ended on April 18th.

At this same moment in time, the approval rating of four previous modern presidents was below fifty percent on average. In November, only one candidate, President Barack Obama, was successful in winning reelection with similar figures.

Biden went on to win the election in November of that year, despite the fact that Trump's Gallup average was 46.8% at that time in 2020.
