Skip to comments.Biden Approval Drops to 50%, Lowest for Him to Date
Posted on 07/24/2021 9:07:36 AM PDT by BeauBo
Six-point decline in approval since June...
Before this month, his ratings had not shown meaningful variation during his time in office...
The new rating is from a July 6-21 Gallup poll, which also finds that 45% of U.S. adults disapprove of Biden's performance and 5% do not have an opinion. It comes at a time when U.S. progress in fighting the coronavirus has stalled, with vaccination rates slowing and case levels now rising. The economic recovery continues, with unemployment declining and stock market values near record highs. But consumers are paying higher prices for gas and other goods. Biden has also struggled to deliver on his promise of greater bipartisanship, although negotiations on an infrastructure bill continue in the Senate.
Biden's approval ratings are marked by extreme party polarization, which has become the norm for presidential approval in recent years. Currently, 90% of Democrats, 12% of Republicans and 48% of independents approve of the job Biden is doing. His ratings among Democrats and independents are the lowest to date among those groups. The new poll marks the first time he has less-than majority approval among independents...
The roughly three-percentage-point drop in Biden's average approval rating between his first and second quarters is typical for recent presidents...
Looking ahead, presidential approval ratings have been more likely to decline rather than increase during presidents' third quarters in office. Obama had the largest drop, of nearly 10 points...
Biden's approval rating is showing the first signs of meaningful decline. If the lower ratings persist, it could indicate his "honeymoon" period is over. Because Republicans have been unlikely to support him from the beginning of his presidency, changes in his approval are likely to come from Democrats' and independents' evaluations of him. That is what has occurred now.

Drops to 30% more closer to reality.
Gallup horse crap. He never made anything close to 50%. He is the theft president
50%? Either they’re lying or the USA is screwed.
I call BS the man never got over 20% , ever.
Fake polls... It was never that high in the public.
Maybe within the DNC hierarchy?
Did you see the photos and ratings of the usurper’s town hall on State Run media. It was a high school auditorium about 20% filled, and had the lowest ratings of the night.
But, but, but we are told he is the most popular President ever.
Drops to 30% more closer to reality.
Another “poll” from the guys who admitted they missed everything by miles on Nov 3 2020?
50% my ass.
The 5 and the 0 need to be switched
No kidding - half of America can't be that stupid! If these numbers are accurate, we're doomed.
Xiden is the biggest disaster to hit our Country since The Great Depression, The Civil War, Watergate, 9/11, WWI, WW2, Vietnam, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, Oklahoma City, The Edsel and New Coke, yet he still has a 50% Approval Rating.
Stop the World, I want to get off.
Look at the disapprove
He couldn’t even get 100 people to show up to his speech the other night, only a dozen or so cars showed up to his campaign rallies, heck hardly anyone even showed up when Obama stumped for him in a desperate bid to bet people out to the ra.lies, and we are to believe that he got more votes tha. Any president ever? Bs
It depends on how you frame the question. If they print “Do you approve of Joe Biden?” when the question was really “Do you approve of Joe Biden being deported to Mexico by trebuchet?” then you’re going to get a slightly different impression of the numbers.
I don’t think he’s even on the richter scale. He can’t draw more than half a crowd in friendly territory.
Galluping past the graveyard.
“50%? Either they’re lying or the USA is screwed.”
How about Gallup is oversampling urban Democrats AND the USA is screwed?
We needed Carter to get Reagan. Biden is worse than Carter.
