“Don’t worry Joe, Jen Rubin still loves you.” But an increasing number of Americans are getting sick of the Biden administration.
Eight months after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, his job approval rating has fallen six percentage points to 43%, the lowest of his presidency. For the first time, a majority, 53%, now disapproves of Biden’s performance.
The pain is exactly where it’s likely to hurt the most.
Independents have shown the greatest variation in their opinions of how Biden is doing. Biden’s current 37% approval rating among independents is his lowest to date and 24 points below his personal high of 61%. Two-thirds of Biden’s slide among independents since he took office has occurred in the past three months.
Most of the country doesn’t identify as Democrat or Republican. Independents turning on the guy in the White House can easily become fatal.
Independents are the likeliest to give a new guy a chance, but they’re not especially loyal.
A 37% approval rating among independents is bad news. And the news is likely to keep getting worse.
