After a brief bump, Joe is back in the basement.
According to a recent Gallup survey, President Biden is back at just 40% job approval; down 2% from September and 4% from August. Joe is still up from his term-low 38% back in July, however.
The Oct. 3-20 survey finds 56% of Americans disapproving of Biden’s performance, unchanged from September and midway between his highest (59% in July) and lowest (53% in August) disapproval scores this year.
Biden’s approval ratings continue to be starkly different by political party, with 85% of Democrats and 4% of Republicans approving. The 81-point gap in party ratings matches the average for Biden’s presidency to date, and is the same level of polarization measured in Donald Trump’s job approval ratings, on average.
Thirty-nine percent of political independents approve of the job Biden is doing, which is slightly above the 36% average approval rating among independents from January to September.
