President Biden job disapproval numbers hits all time high

By Dave Andrusko

President Biden’s job disapprovals hit an all-time high in a new CNBC poll . Thomas Franck explains:

Fifty-six percent of voters now say they disapprove of the job Biden is doing, the worst such reading of his presidency as he approaches the end of his first year in office, according to new CNBC/Change Research polls. Prior polls in the series showed Biden’s disapproval rating at 54% in early September and 49% in April.

Biden’s approval rating is now at 44%, down from 46% in September and 51% in April. …

Results from a CNBC/Change Research poll show 60% of respondents said they disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy as he nears the conclusion of his first year in office. 

A 55% majority of survey respondents also signaled disapproval of his leadership during the pandemic, an area in which he previously excelled.

Bad as those numbers are, Biden scores worse on personal favorability: 38/56.

Ed Morrissey writes, “Even worse for Biden, there isn’t a policy area in which he doesn’t get majority disapproval. In several areas, as you’ll see, Biden gets majorities who strongly disapprove of his performance.”

He adds, “Biden fully owns every aspect of his collapse, and so do Democrats. The generic congressional poll result is a dead heat at 43-up, a very bad result for Democrats. Even when pressing the undecided to make a choice, Democrats still only lead 45/44 on a question they need to lead by at least five points just to remain competitive.”

The picture these numbers paint for the elections this fall are grim. 

“While the president’s party typically loses seats in Congress during a first-term election, present polling about Biden and Democrats suggest they could face a rout in November,” Franck writes.
