Biden Approval Rating Nears Lowest Point in Presidency ,

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dipped slightly since a month ago, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The poll shows that there have been modest fluctuations in support for Biden over the past several months. The president’s approval rating stands at 38%, which is nearing the lowest point of his presidency. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the poll results, what they mean, and what factors might be contributing to the slip in Biden’s approval rating.

Understanding the Poll Results

The poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research surveyed 1,081 adults from March 16-20, 2023. The margin of error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.0 percentage points. The poll shows that Biden’s approval rating has slipped from 45% in February to 38% in March. His ratings hit their lowest point of his presidency last July, at 36%, as the full weight of rising gasoline, food and other costs began to hit U.S. households.

Interviews with poll respondents suggest the public has mixed feelings about Biden. When it comes to the president, people generally do not swing between the extremes of absolute loyalty and aggressive loathing that have been a feature of this era’s divided politics. Democrats under the age of 45 feel less positive about Biden, causing a drag on his approval ratings. Just 54% approve of the president’s economic leadership, compared to 72% of Democrats older than 45. Similarly, just 66% of Democrats under 45 approve of Biden overall, compared to 85% of older Democrats.

Factors Contributing to the Slip in Biden’s Approval Rating

There are a number of factors that could be contributing to the slip in Biden’s approval rating. For one, his handling of the nation’s economic fortunes has been a weak point at least since late 2021 when the inflation that the administration had suggested was transitory became a bigger pain point for businesses and families. Just 31% approve of Biden’s stewardship of the national economy, about where it’s been over the course of the last year.

Additionally, recent bank failures have put the economy on a knife’s edge, and the debt limit showdown with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., could put the U.S. government at risk of defaulting. The economy feels as though it could be on a knife’s edge after the recent bank failures, as well as the debt limit showdown.

What Biden is Doing to Boost the Economy

Despite the mixed feelings about Biden’s handling of the economy, he has taken ambitious steps to boost the U.S. economy. His $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package from 2021, infrastructure investments, support for computer chip plants and taxes on corporations and the wealthy to help fund health care and a shift away from fossil fuels are just some of the ways he has attempted to boost the economy. However, these efforts involve multiyear investments that have yet to provide much optimism to a public dealing with annual inflation at 6%.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dipped slightly since a month ago, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The slip in his approval rating could be due to a number of factors, including his handling of the economy and recent bank failures. However, despite mixed feelings about Biden’s handling of the economy, he has taken ambitious steps to boost the U.S. economy. As the country continues to navigate through these challenging times, it remains to be seen how Biden’s approval rating will be affected in the future.
