For the last post of the day, I’ll briefly look at Gallup’s latest numbers on pro-abortion President Joe Biden.

The headline to Gallup’s Nov. 1-21 survey is “Poor Marks for Biden: Middle East, Economy, Foreign Affairs.” The headline for the New York Post’s take on that poll is “Biden falls to record-low 27% approval among independents — an 8-point drop from October.”

By and large Gallup’s Megan Brenan reports the same dismal numbers.

The polls “marks the third time Biden’s overall job approval rating has been at 37%,” Brenan writes. “Biden’s current rating on the economy is just one percentage point higher than his lowest in 2022, while his foreign affairs rating is the lowest by six points.”

In what may well be the most significant finding, she adds, “Meanwhile, Biden’s approval rating from political independents has dropped eight points over the past month to a record-low 27% for that group, while he continues to earn minimal approval, just 5%, from Republicans.”

Writing for the New York Post, Victor Nava zones in on Biden’s faltering support among Independents. By the way, “some 49% of Americans consider themselves to be political independents, according to the pollster

Nava quotes from a Yahoo News poll, “also released earlier this month, determined that just 22% of independents think Biden is competent and 69% are concerned about his health and mental acuity.”

Brenan finishes her story with a strong warning for President Biden:

“With less than a year to go until the presidential election, Biden continues to receive tepid ratings from the American public. His overall job approval rating is still at his personal low and is in historically dangerous territory for an incumbent seeking reelection.”
