End of the week look at how President Biden is faring with the public

Published on

As is customary at the end of each week, this final brief post will examine the manner in which President Joe Biden, who is pro-abortion, is perceived by the American public. (A preview of the forthcoming analysis indicates that the president’s job approval ratings have remained largely unchanged, although there are some indications of a potential decline.)
The latest figures from various polling agencies indicate a range of job approval ratings, from a low of 38% to a high of 46%. However, the figure of 46% from Rasmussen Reports is 4 points higher than the highest rating from any other agency. The most recent poll, conducted by the Associated Press and NORC, indicates that 42% of respondents approve of the job that President Joe Biden is doing.

Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey quips

Forty-two? How did Biden get to 42% approval rating?. One might inquire as to the ease with which this can be accomplished. The answer is that it is relatively straightforward to do so in a poll where the sample consists of 44% Democrats and 36% Republicans, including leaners.

If, as James Carville said in 1992, “It’s the economy, stupid,” how is the president doing in this critical measure of voter satisfaction? A dismal 36% approval rating was reported by Josh Boak and Emily Swanson.

One additional noteworthy finding from the AP/NORC poll survey is as follows:

The poll shows that 23% of Americans say they have a great deal of confidence in Biden’s ability to effectively manage the White House, 31% have some confidence and 45% have hardly any. Despite the fact that Biden has achieved several of his major policy goals, just 16% say they have high confidence in his ability to do that, while 38% say they have some confidence and 44% hardly any.

It is not a secret that the Democratic Party is counting on the numbers for former President Trump to remain low.

However, the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberle A. Strassel posits that this is a tenuous foundation upon which to rely.

Look at Mr. Biden in isolation. Democrats are by every measure putting forward their weakest presidential nominee in decades, one who makes even the hapless Jimmy Carter of 1980 look competent. ….

But he is more than four score years old, and it’s increasingly difficult to tiptoe around the president’s disturbing decline. The long vacations, the early nights, the confusion, the mumbling, the bizarre statements. A June poll found that 71% of likely voters, including nearly half of Democrats, think Mr. Biden is too old to be president. The pace at which he’s getting worse has also been striking, raising the question of a Nominee Biden’s performance a year from now. God save the queen, man.

Have a great weekend.
