Can he overcome this?

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has sunk to the lowest levels since he entered the Oval Office.

The President’s plunge in approval ratings started in April 2021 and has been on the decline ever since, with the largest dip being in August 2021 after Biden oversaw a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The President’s polling decline received a short-lived reprieve in March of this year, after it appeared he would be taking firm action against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but continued its nosedive shortly after it appeared Biden had no control over the situation and its effect on American people.

Now, Biden’s recent polls have him tied with former President Jimmy Carter’s all-time Gallup bottom and are headed towards Richard Nixon’s resignation-day approval rating.

Although it’s only one poll, Civiqs — an online poll founded in 2018 — puts Biden’s approval rating at 29 percent, with 58 percent disapproving.
Biden’s disapproval is greatest among voters aged 18 to 34, with 60 percent disapproving and only 21 percent approving.

Independent voters also seemed to have turned on Biden, with 67 percent disapproving and 19 percent approving.

Another notable figure is that only 62 percent of Democrats approve of Biden, showing the President is losing the support of liberal voters and media outlets who have begun to question the President’s competency.

This questioning has also fueled fear among Democrat leaders, who are concerned Biden may not be able to win reelection.
