Gallup just released a poll finding that Joe Biden’s approval for the fifth quarter was only 41.3%.
This was the second-lowest in history.
Past four Presidents’ approvals in Gallup at the same time.
Bush – 79.5%
Obama – 48.8%
Trump – 39.1%
Biden – 41.3%
(This is with the media backing Biden 100%)
During Joe Biden’s fifth quarter in office, which began on January 20 and ended on April 19, an average of 41.3% of U.S. adults approved of the job he was doing as president. The latest average is essentially unchanged from the 41.7% in his fourth quarter but significantly lower than his first three quarterly averages.
This is very bad news for the Democrats’ midterm chances.
The prospects for significant improvement in Biden’s job approval ratings before the fall midterms seem dim not only because of the historical record for second-year presidents, but because his approval ratings have been stuck in the low 40s for eight months. Even if they improve, they would have to do so by at least 10 points to be in the 50% range historically associated with the president’s party avoiding big seat losses.
As things stand, given the strong link between presidential job approval ratings and how the president’s party performs in midterm elections, Biden appears likely to be governing with Republican majorities in one or both houses of Congress next year unless his rating dramatically improves.
