(Big League Politics) – President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have reached a new all-time low, with Americans souring on the establishment Democrat President as his administration fails to recover from a series of crises.
Biden’s approval rating was gauged at 43% in a new Gallup poll. 53% of Americans disapprove of Biden, a figure that would likely ensure Biden’s Democratic Party would badly lose any election that occurred today.
In a peculiar twist, Kamala Harris is far more popular than Biden, with approvals and disapprovals of 49% each.
Biden’s approvals are down six points since August and 13 points since June, with the President quickly losing support. The Biden administration has been beset with controversy throughout the summer, with the nation’s southern border open to a tidal wave of record-setting illegal immigration, COVID-19 continuing to spread in spite of President Biden’s signature campaign promise to halt the disease, and the death of 13 American service members in a mission to transport asylum seekers from the Kabul Airport in Afghanistan to the United States.
The Democrat’s approval ratings have taken a hit the hardest among independents, whose approval of Biden has declined from 61% to 37%.
While Biden’s approval rating is approximately the same as Donald Trump’s during the same point in his presidency, there’s reason to believe Biden is more unpopular than Trump ever was. Polling from corporate media routinely underestimated Trump’s support in the 2016 and 2020, with Donald Trump supporters uninclined to speak to mainstream media pollsters they don’t trust.
