How low can he go?
President Biden’s approval rating has fallen to just 30%, his lowest mark yet, in a new national poll.
The Civiqs Poll’s daily tracking survey of registered voters found less than a third of Americans approve of Biden’s performance at work – and a whopping 57% disapprove.
“Joe Biden’s presidency is sinking a thousand holes in the boat,” said GOP consultant Ryan Girdusky.
The poll, released on Friday, found Biden deep under water with voters of all ages, education levels and both genders. Each of these groups posted approval ratings below 40%, with the youngest voters, aged 18 to 34, among the most dissatisfied at a dismal 21%.
In only two of 50 states, Hawaii and Vermont, do Biden supporters outnumber his detractors.
Democrats and black voters are the two groups still in the president’s corner, according to the survey — and not many.
Only 56% of African Americans — the Dems’ most loyal voting bloc — signaled approval, and Democrats overall hit 64%, a new low.
Even more maddeningly, Biden’s 30% overall approval was far below the 39% Civiqs recorded in 2017 as the lowest number ever for President Donald Trump – and not even remotely shouting from the ratings. 44% approval that Trump garnered at the same time of his presidency. .
The survey came at the end of a dismal week for Biden, as the specter of recession loomed, gasoline prices remained near record highs, parents continued to rush for infant formula and a July 4 mass shooting has clouded the gun control debate.
His administration has been on fire from all sides for failing to secure the supply of monkeypox vaccine and admitting that Border Patrol agents did not whip migrants, as alleged Biden.
After weeks of heavy criticism from Democratic leftists for his flaccid response to the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade, Biden sought to relieve growing pressure within his party on Friday by signing an executive order intended to help women to have an abortion.
Calling the decision “an exercise in raw political power” and a “giant step backwards,” Biden tried to display a tough and furious determination.
But he fumbled his performance on the podium, drawing widespread mockery for an apparent ‘Ron Burgundy moment’ when he blurted out a bit of showmanship – ‘Repeat the line’ – while reading a speech straight from of a teleprompter, just like the infamous Will Ferrell character.
“Whoever controls the teleprompter is the real president!” tweeted Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.
The RealClear Politics polling average, which compiles the results of multiple polls, pegs Biden’s approval at 38% — but that, too, is at an all-time low for the president.
Democratic consultant Chris Coffey, CEO of Tusk Strategies, said the party had no reason to despair.
“Bill Clinton was in his thirties before he was easily re-elected,” Coffey noted. “Day-to-day polls mean less than having the conviction and doing what you think is right and letting the American people see and hear that.”
But Girdusky predicted nothing but trouble for the Dems in the upcoming midterm elections.
“Unlike Trump, who was often seen as his own worst enemy, Biden seems thoughtless and sits by while the country burns,” Girdusky said. “Democrats don’t have anything left to capitalize on for midterms except the abortion decision…but that won’t be enough.”
