President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped to a near low for his presidency, according to a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
The survey shows that Biden’s approval rating has dipped to 38 percent, down from 45 percent in February and 41 percent in January.
The poll cited economic concerns as the most significant factor in Biden’s declining approval rating, with only 25 percent of people believing that the national economy is doing well or on the right track.
Other issues, such as national security and healthcare, are also being emphasized. While a majority of Republicans did not approve of Biden’s job performance, 63 percent of Democrats approved of his handling of the economy, and 76 percent approved of his presidency overall.
However, the poll also indicates that approval figures are declining among Democrats under the age of 45, possibly due to Biden’s failure to fulfill his environmental protection pledges.
As concerns about a potential recession grow, the Biden administration is grappling to maintain stability.
The outlet noted that if Biden decides to seek another term, which is widely anticipated, the economy is expected to be a significant factor in determining the election’s outcome.
