Biden’s approval rating drops again – to 33%: poll

President Biden’s job approval rating fell to 33% in the latest Quinnipiac University poll, a huge 17 percentage point drop from February and an indication of deep dissatisfaction among U.S. voters with the response from his administration to rising inflation and a resurgence of COVID-19.

More than half of American adults (53%) disapprove of the president’s job, while 13% told the pollster they couldn’t give an opinion.

While Biden achieved his high 50% approval rating in the Feb. 17 edition of the poll, that number has not exceeded 40% since mid-September.

At the same time, the president’s disapproval rate in the survey rose 17 percentage points from its low of 36% on February 3.

Three-quarters of Democrats said they approved of Biden, while only 25% of Independents and 2% of Republicans said the same.

The survey found that 49% of Americans believe the president is doing more to divide the country, while only 42% said he is working to unite it.

Biden also received insufficient marks for his handling of the economy (34% approval, 57% disapproval), pandemic (39% approval, 55% approval) and foreign policy (35% d ‘approval, 54% disapproval).

As Biden’s first anniversary approaches, 50% of Americans say the president is doing about as well as expected, 39% say he’s doing worse than expected, and only 7% say it exceeds expectations.

A plurality (49%) say the president is doing more to divide the country, while only 42% said he is working to unite it, undermining a key theme of Biden’s successful presidential campaign in 2020 .

Most Americans also don’t care how Democrats and Republicans handle their jobs on Capitol Hill, with 62% disapproving of Republicans in Congress and 59% disapproving of Democrats in Congress.

But when asked which party they would want to control the House of Representatives if the midterm elections took place today, Republicans edged Democrats by 43% to 42%.

When asked which party they would like to have a majority in the Senate, 45% chose Republicans, while 41% said Democrats.

Almost 6 in 10 respondents (59%) said they would not want to see former President Donald Trump run for the White House again in 2024, while only 33% said they would.

More than two-thirds of Republicans (69%) say they want Trump to run again, compared with 78% who expressed support for another presidential candidacy in October.

The poll questioned 1,313 adults between January 7 and 10 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
