Biden Disapproval Rating At New Low
The latest survey from NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ reveals that 56% of American citizens express either mild or strong disapproval of President Biden’s performance in office. On the flip side, 44% of those surveyed express some degree of approval.
When scrutinized by political affiliation, the figures reveal stark differences: 85% of Democrats show approval for Biden, whereas only 40% of independents and a mere 10% of Republicans feel the same.
Age also plays a role in how Biden is viewed. Young adults between the ages of 18 and 34 award him the highest approval rating at 48%. Middle-aged Americans, those between 35 and 55, give him a slightly lower mark of 45%. Interestingly, those over the age of 55—often considered a key voting demographic—only offer a 42% approval rating.
Ethnicity adds another layer to these figures. African American voters show the most robust support for Biden with a 61% approval rating. Hispanic and Asian American voters both show a similar level of approval, at 55%. However, among white voters, Biden’s approval sits at just 42%.
This new data emerges at a time when the 2024 presidential race is heating up, with indications pointing toward a possible showdown between Biden and former President Trump. The poll numbers are adding fuel to discussions around Biden’s age, which many see as a significant concern. Additionally, Biden now faces internal party challenges; Rep. Dean Phillips from Minnesota has thrown his hat into the ring for the Democratic presidential nomination, becoming the third, and perhaps most high-profile, Democrat to do so.
