- President Joe Biden’s approval rating hit a record low of 37% in an April 2023 Gallup survey.
- Biden’s 37% approval rating is down 20 points over the last two years since he held a 57% approval rating in April 2021.
- Biden’s record-low approval rating brings the average approval rating for his ninth presidential quarter down to the second-lowest of any president post-World War II.
- Just 31% of independents approve of Biden’s job performance, a key demographic he will have to persuade if he hopes to secure a second term in the White House.
President Joe Biden’s recent announcement of his reelection campaign was met with disappointing news from the latest Gallup survey. Biden’s approval rating hit a record low of 37%, with 59% disapproving of his job performance.
This represents a significant drop from his 57% approval rating in April 2021, down by 20 points in just two years.
This record-low approval rating brings the average approval rating for Biden’s ninth presidential quarter down to the second-lowest of any president post-World War II.
The only president with a lower ninth-quarter average was Ronald Reagan in 1983, after dealing with a recession in the early 1980s that saw an unemployment rate above 10%.
The Gallup poll also found that just 31% of independents approve of Biden’s job performance, a crucial demographic he will need to persuade if he hopes to secure a second term in the White House.
Biden’s 31% approval rating among independents ties his lowest for that group and is down nine percent since February.
What does this mean for President Biden’s reelection campaign? It indicates that he has a lot of work to do if he hopes to secure another term in the White House. Winning back the support of independents and improving his overall approval rating will be critical. If he fails to do so, it could spell trouble for his chances of being reelected.
President Biden’s record-low approval rating comes as no surprise to those of us who have been paying attention to his disastrous policies and failed leadership. It’s clear that the American people are waking up to the fact that Biden is not the leader they thought he would be.
From his handling of the border crisis to his disastrous energy policies, Biden has shown time and time again that he is not up to the task of leading this country. His approval rating among independents, a crucial demographic, is at an all-time low, and it’s not hard to see why.
Biden’s radical agenda has alienated many Americans, including those in the middle who are looking for a leader who will put their interests first. Instead, Biden has prioritized the interests of his far-left base, pushing policies that are harmful to American workers and families.
It’s clear that Biden’s reelection campaign is in trouble. If he hopes to win back the support of independents and improve his approval rating, he needs to take a hard look at his policies and make some significant changes. The American people deserve better than what they have seen from Biden so far, and it’s time for him to step up and deliver. Otherwise, he will find himself out of a job come 2024.
