Poll: Biden approval rating hits new low

The approval rating of the US president hit a new low of 39 percent in the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll as the White House faces crises on multiple fronts.

Iran PressAmerica: The polling comes as the White House struggles on several domestic and foreign issues.

Inflation is causing economic concern nationwide, reaching the highest level in decades, in part fueled by the coronavirus pandemic. And while coronavirus cases are dropping in some states, they remain high, and hospital systems across the country are struggling under the crush of COVID-19-related admissions.

According to the poll, 18 percent of registered voters said they strongly approve of the job he’s doing, while 21 percent say they somewhat approve. Meanwhile, 53 percent said they somewhat or strongly disapprove of his job performance, the Hill reported.

That number is six points down from his approval rating in November, when he was at 45 percent, while his disapproval rating ticked up from 51 percent two months ago. His 39 percent approval rating is the lowest since the poll first started gauging it in March.
