Just one-third of Americans approve of the job President Biden is doing, a new low for the president, in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.
The poll showed Biden’s approval rating had dipped slightly from November, when his approval rating was at 36 percent. It continued a troubling trend for Biden, whose approval rating has steadily declined in each Quinnipiac poll released over the last several months.
And it follows a broader trend of underwater polling numbers for Biden as he grapples with a series of difficult issues to tackle, such as rising prices, a persistent coronavirus pandemic and disagreements within his own party that have stalled progress on his Build Back Better agenda.
Wednesday’s tough poll numbers are attributed largely to poor marks from independent voters, 57 percent of whom said they disapproved of Biden’s job performance compared to 25 percent who approved.
Biden also saw his approval among Democrats dip from 87 percent in November to 75 percent in the latest poll.
