3 Days After Announcing His 2024 Candidacy, Biden Gets Rocked by the Worst Poll of His Presidency

Published on

Gallup released its most recent survey results regarding President Joe Biden’s job approval rating, and the results were not favorable for the incumbent.

The fact that the poll was released three days after the official announcement of his reelection campaign can only have exacerbated the White House’s predicament.

According to Gallup, “Biden’s decision to seek a second term comes at the weakest point in his presidency,” with an overall approval rating of just 37%.

Even though this is the lowest approval rating Gallup has recorded for Biden since the beginning of his presidency, it is not the worst news for a politician seeking a second term.

The president’s approval rating among independent voters was at its lowest level since his inauguration, at 31%.

Granted, the telephone poll surveyed 1,013 randomly selected adults who were neither likely nor registered voters, so the sample likely skews older. Thus, the statistics may not correspond closely to actual ballots. The sampling error claimed by Gallop was plus or minus 4 points.

However, the trajectory of the number is not encouraging for the Biden campaign, as his approval rating has declined by five points since February and three points since March.

“Only Ronald Reagan in early 1983 had a lower ninth-quarter average among elected post-World War II presidents,” Gallup said, adding that Reagan was confronting a recession and unemployment of over 10 percent at the time.

Both Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump were in their forties at this juncture in their respective administrations; neither was reelected.

Gallup suggested that Biden’s declining numbers were likely related to Americans’ worsening view of the economy in recent months. Only 19 percent of those surveyed believed the economy was improving, while 75 percent believed it was worsening.

“His support has mainly been stuck in the low 40% range since the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan,” the pollster wrote. “Now it has fallen below the 40% mark for just the second time in his presidency, as Americans’ confidence in the economy slips further.”

Gallup noted that high petroleum prices and inflation rates, higher interest rates, and announced cutbacks have all contributed to the perception of a weak economy despite the relatively low unemployment rate.
