( – In a recent Gallup poll, one U.S. official emerged with the highest approval rating, demonstrating his significant standing in the public eye.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts achieved a 48% job performance approval rating, surpassing other prominent leaders.

Following Roberts, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries secured the second-highest approval rating at 46%.

Not far behind, Secretary of State Antony Blinken received a 45% approval rating, while Attorney General Merrick Garland was close with a 44% rating, indicating a generally positive perception of their job performance.

Despite his top ranking, it’s notable that Chief Justice Roberts also has a substantial disapproval rating of 46%, reflecting a divided opinion among the public.

President Joe Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell found themselves at the lower end of the approval spectrum, with Biden holding a 39% approval rating and McConnell at 27%.

These figures suggest challenges in public perception for both leaders.

The poll also highlights a downward trend in popularity for several officials compared to December 2021.

For instance, Chief Justice Roberts had a 60% approval rating in December 2021, which has since declined.

This drop coincides with significant Supreme Court decisions, including the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Similarly, McConnell’s approval has decreased from 34% to 27%, and Biden’s has slipped from 43% to 39% over the same period.

Interestingly, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s approval rating experienced the most significant decline, dropping by ten points since 2021.

In contrast, newer figures in their leadership roles, such as Hakeem Jeffries and House Speaker Mike Johnson, have maintained stable approval ratings. Johnson’s approval rating currently stands at 40%, indicating a steady start to his term in office.
