Biden is Least Popular President In Decades At This Point of Presidency

( – A new Gallup poll has shown that President Joe Biden is the least popular president at this stage of his term in several decades.

The poll found that Biden’s approval rating of 38.7% in his term’s 13th quarter was lower than that of any president since Dwight D. Eisenhower. Though leftist commentators and scholars have branded former President Trump the worst president in the country’s history, George H. W. Bush came closer to Biden’s low popularity with an approval rating of 41.8% in 1992. At this stage of his presidency, Trump had an approval rating of 46.8%.

The damning poll shows Biden to be even less popular than Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. With concerns mounting about Biden’s mental health and viability as a Democratic presidential candidate, in addition to the Biden administration’s economic policies and handling of the migration crisis, the latest poll may be a strong indicator of how challenging the November election could be for the incumbent 81-year-old president.

Former President Barack Obama secured a second term in 2012 despite an approval rating of 46%, but all incumbent presidents in the last 70 years with an approval rating above 50% managed to win another term. Biden’s low approval rating, one of the worst since WW2, is at a level that has failed to secure a sitting president a second term throughout the Gallup Poll’s history.

According to a poll published earlier in April, 29% of Americans do not think either Biden or Trump would be a good president. Despite Biden’s low approval rating, the 2024 presidential election is still looking to be a reasonably tight race between the two leading party candidates. According to national polls, Trump still only has a 0.3% lead over Biden.

Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has been gaining support among young voters and ethnic minorities who feel similarly disillusioned with both parties. The percentage of party voters who think that Trump or Biden would be a good candidate remains the same at 71%, according to polls, but these smaller sampled groups are not indicative of nationwide popularity levels.
