Just two weeks before the United States midterm elections, Joe Biden’s approval rating fell as the national polls showed only 39% that approved his job, the lowest point in his presidency.
Because of his unpopularity as of late, from that point of view, the Republicans would win the midterm election on November 8, taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives and also the Senate.
Biden took office in January 2021, in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. His term was marked by the economic scars of the global health crisis, including soaring inflation. In May and June this year, Biden’s approval rating drifted to as low as 36%.
In the poll, one third of respondents picked the economy as the biggest problem in the country, a much larger share than the one in 10 who picked crime, and only one in 20 pointed to the end of national abortion rights.
The poll, conducted online, gathered responses from 1,005 adults, including Democrats by 447 and Republicans by 369.
