They told us Joe was on a comeback and that the Democrats have the momentum to win the midterms. Well, not so fast.
Just a few days after the media and Democrats spent a whole weekend telling us Joe is back and on top new polls numbers came out, and they are terrible.
After two weeks on vacation, Biden’s approval rating continues to fall, according to a Reuters/Iposo poll.
The national poll found that only 38% of Americans approve of the job Biden is doing after it “spiked” to 41% a week ago. So to be clear, Biden’s approval rating dropped after he announced his student loan scam.
While Biden’s approval rating hit 41% last week, it has been mostly below 40% since mid-June despite a string of Democratic legislative victories that Biden’s allies hope will help them defend their narrow congressional majorities in November.
Biden’s overall approval rating has been below 50% for over a year as Americans have grappled with high rates of inflation and an economy scarred by the COVID-19 health crisis. Biden’s lowest ratings of 36% – in four weekly polls in May, June and July – rivaled the lows of his predecessor, Donald Trump.
It gets gleefully worse for the president; Trump is kicking his butt.
