Record Low Approval Rating for Biden Reached

After months of struggling to recover from his approval rating drop following the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Joe Biden has reached a new low, just under five months before Americans head to the polls. At 37.4%, his approval rating is the lowest it has ever been. This decline in popularity comes amid concerns over support from nonwhite voters and criticism from progressives regarding the White House’s response to the conflict in Gaza.

In contrast, former President Donald Trump’s favorability rating has seen a slight increase since leaving office. Trump currently holds a 41.6% favorability rating. However, Trump faces a challenging future as he became the first former president to be convicted of a felony.

The lack of widespread popularity for either Biden or Trump may highlight the intensely partisan nature of today’s politics. Both candidates lack strong approval ratings, with historical comparisons showing they may be the least popular candidates in decades. Biden’s lower popularity puts him at risk of losing the election in November, particularly given historical trends regarding presidential approval ratings and reelection outcomes.

To change this narrative, Biden will be looking to increase his campaign efforts and participate in an early debate against his opponent. The debate, scheduled for June 27 and hosted by CNN, could provide an opportunity for Biden to connect with voters and improve his overall standing before the election.

Trump’s conviction may also play a role in how voters perceive him leading up to the election. As he faces legal consequences for his actions while in office, many are questioning whether he is fit to hold public office again.

Overall, the lack of widespread support for either candidate may indicate that Americans are becoming increasingly disillusioned with politics and politicians as a whole.
