According to recent Gallup polling, President Biden’s approval ratings remain low, with only 38% approving of his overall job performance and majorities disapproving on key issues.

His approval average for his first three years is the second worst for post-WWII presidents.

“Americans’ approval of President Joe Biden’s job performance has edged down three percentage points to 38%, just one point shy of his all-time low and well below the 50% threshold that has typically led to reelection for incumbents,” Gallup reported.

“Biden’s approval rating has not risen above 44% since August 2021, and his 39.8% average rating for his third year in office was the second worst among post-World War II presidents elected to their first term.”

Only 40% approve of his handling of Ukraine while majorities disapprove of his handling of the economy (61%), immigration (67%), and the Israel-Hamas conflict (62%).

“Democrats’ latest overall job rating of Biden is steady at 82% — higher than they give him for any specific issue. However, the 82% overall approval is far from the nearly unanimous approval he earned from his party during his first 11 months in office, but it is unchanged compared with November, even as his issue ratings are mostly down,” Gallup wrote.

His approval on immigration, at 28%, is his lowest rating.

While Democrats remain relatively steady in their approval of Biden at 82%, this is down from earlier unanimous support and lower than for any specific issue.

The polling underscores challenges for Biden as he faces reelection with dissatisfaction among Americans on the economy, border security, and other priorities.
