(TheProudRepublic.com) – In a quite logical though long overdue development, President Joe Biden has scored the lowest approval rating in his presidency so far, as only about a third of American voters now hold a favorable view of his performance in the White House.
Biden’s popularity has reached a record low, as revealed by the results from the latest Monmouth University poll released on Monday.
This development is causing concern among Democrats, given that Biden, at 81, is currently the party’s likely nominee for the 2024 presidential election.
The poll has found that only 34% of respondents approve of Biden, while a significant 61% disapprove of his performance.
This downward trend in Biden’s approval rating is the lowest recorded by this pollster.
In July, his approval was at 44%. By September, it had fallen to 38%. As of December, it stands at just 34%.
Even among Democratic voters, there’s been a notable 14-point drop in approval over five months: 88% in July, 80% in September, and now down to 74% in December.
The Monmouth University poll surveyed 803 Americans between November 30 and December 4, with a margin of error of 4.8 percentage points.
This Monmouth poll is part of a series of unfavorable poll results for the president.
A Fox News poll indicates 54% of Democratic primary voters would prefer someone other than Biden.
A Morning Consult poll shows Trump leading Biden in six out of seven critical swing states.
According to Pew Research, Biden’s approval has plummeted to just 33%, the lowest since his inauguration.
A CNN Poll reflects Biden’s approval at the lowest point of his presidency.
During an encounter on Sunday in Wilmington, Delaware, when a reporter queried Biden about his trailing behind former President Donald Trump in a potential 2024 matchup, Biden retorted, “You’re reading the wrong polls.”
Biden’s reference to other polls is unclear. However, polls showing Biden either tied or slightly ahead of Trump include NPR/PBS/Marist, Yahoo News/YouGov, USA Today/Suffolk, and Quinnipiac University.
These polling results seem to be having an impact on President Biden.
According to sources familiar with his private remarks, cited by the Washington Post, Biden expressed dissatisfaction that his economic policies haven’t significantly improved his standing despite economic growth and falling unemployment.
