It turns out the ‘most popular’ president in US history isn’t so popular.
Joe Biden’s approval dropped to 37 percent in a WaPo-ABC poll.
Only 37 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance, with 55 percent disapproving.
This is a left-leaning poll so the numbers are actually much worse for Joe Biden.
JUST IN: A career-low 37% of Americans approve of Pres. Biden’s job performance, with 55% disapproving.
That includes just 30% approval among political independents and 10% from Republicans. https://t.co/iPBivNIKhB pic.twitter.com/uxWnC7a21u

ABC News reported:
Economic discontent is hurting President Joe Biden and his party’s midterm election prospects, with six in 10 Americans reporting inflation hardships, three-quarters saying the economy’s in bad shape and a nearly 20-point lead for the Republican Party in trust to handle it.
Biden has other problems, with underwater ratings for his handling of the invasion of Ukraine, a split on the pandemic and weak scores on personal attributes including leadership, handling a crisis and mental sharpness.
But 40-year-high inflation leads his headaches: Americans are twice as likely to say they’re worse off than better off under his presidency, by 35-17%
The result: A career-low 37% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance overall, with 55% disapproving. That includes just 30% approval among political independents and 10% from Republicans. Even in his own party, nearly a quarter of Democrats either disapprove of Biden (19%) or are withholding judgment (4%).
The media still hasn’t explained how Joe Biden, who supposedly got 81 million votes in the 2020 election, has such abysmal poll numbers just over one year later.
