54% percent of respondents disapproved of Biden’s performance, with 43% saying that they “strongly” disapproved. By contrast, just 18% said they strongly approved of the 46th president.
Among registered voters, 35 percent approved of Biden’s job performance, while 55 percent disapproved, according to the poll.
57 percent disapproved of Biden’s handling of the economy, 54 percent disapproved of his handling of foreign policy and 55 percent disapproved of his handling of the pandemic.
The poll was released one day after the annual inflation rate reached 8.5%, its highest level since December 1981.
Disapproval of the president cuts across gender and racial lines, with 63% of white men and 56% of white women saying they don’t like the job Biden is doing. Biden is also under water among both white adults (59-31 disapproval) and Hispanic adults (54-26 disapproval).
