How low will Joe Biden’s job approval rating go? According to the newest Quinnipiac University Poll released Thursday, Biden’s approval rating just keeps going lower and lower. Now at a 36% approval number, Biden has set another all-time low since the school started tracking the president’s approval, down a full percent from his 37% approval in October.
Besides Biden’s approval continuing to be in a freefall, Quinnipiac reports that if the 2022 midterm elections were held today, Republicans would win control of the House and Senate. “Americans say 46-38 percent they would want to see the Republican Party win control of the House of Representatives, while 16 percent did not offer an opinion,” the school announced.
While Republicans and Democrats are firmly behind their parties, the highly coveted Independents “say 41-31 percent they would want to see Republicans win” control of the House.
When asked what the most important problem facing the country, the most frequent responses were:
- Division/Polarization: 11%
- The economy: 10%
- Immigration/Border security: 8%
- Inflation/High cost of living: 8%
Biden’s big problem with Americans seems to be on trust:
- cares about average Americans: 47% say yes, while 47% say no
- is honest: 42% say yes, while 51% say no
- has good leadership skills: 37% say yes, while 57% say no
More numbers for Biden to analyze:
• 61% of Americans say the economy is “getting worse” (it was 55% in October)
• 68% of Americans say the cost of food and gasoline has caused them to change spending habits
• 53% say they aren’t finding grocery items they want to buy
• 52% say they’re experiencing delays receiving items they bought
• 45% of Americans think the coronavirus situation is getting better
In October, Biden’s approval ratings in the Gallop poll declined at a pace that hadn’t been seen since World War II.
