President Joe Biden is facing the worst job approval rating of his tenure in Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research polling.
A recently conducted survey of adults found that that 39% approve of how Biden his handling his role, while a whopping 60% disapprove. The poll indicates that 12% strongly approve, 26% somewhat approve, 1% lean in the direction of approving, 39% strongly disapprove, 21% somewhat disapprove, and 1% lean in the direction of disapproving.
An AP-NORC poll conducted in April found that 45% approved versus 54% who disapproved. A poll in March found that 43% approved compared to 56% who disapproved.
Biden continues to face dismal rankings on his handling of the economy. Just 33% approve of how Biden is dealing with the economy, while a massive 67% disapprove, according to the recent survey. The April poll similarly found 33% approval versus 66% disapproval.
Biden has long been underwater on his job approval numbers in various polls.

The recent AP-NORC poll found that 56% think that high fuel prices are more the result of issues beyond the president’s control, while 44% think the high prices are more due to the president’s policies — a poll in March found almost the same numbers, with 55% indicating that the high prices were more due to conditions beyond Biden’s control and 44% indicating that the prices were more due to Biden’s policies.
“I feel like the stimulus checks came out and that was the last win of his administration,” Democrat Milan Ramsey said about the president, according to the Associated Press. “I think he’s tired — and I don’t blame him, I’d be tired too at his age with the career he’s had.”
