The newest poll, which was conducted by Monmouth University and released on Tuesday, showed that Biden’s current approval rating stands at an abysmal 36% approval.
Biden’s current approval rating marks an all-time low for the president, and is two points lower than May’s 38% approval rating and a whopping 18 points lower than the president’s 54% approval rating when he first entered office in January 2021.
According to the university’s summary of the new polling data, the main issues affecting Biden’s approval ratings are inflation, gas prices, the economy, the cost of living and abortion rights.
“Nearly half of the public names either inflation (33%) or gas prices (15%) as the biggest concern facing their family right now,” the university explained. “The economy in general (9%) and paying everyday bills (6%) are among other financial concerns mentioned.”
“Abortion, which has registered less than 1% on this question in prior Monmouth polls going back to 2015, is currently named by 5% – predominantly among Democrats (9%).”
Monmouth University also broke down Biden’s newest approval rating by party affiliation, finding that while 74% of Democrats still approve of President Biden’s job so far, only 29% of independent voters and 3% of Republican voters approve of his job in office.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, this is just the latest disaster to strike an administration that has already been plagued by numerous problems: including not just rising inflation and gas prices and a staggering economy, but also a war in Ukraine, an ongoing baby formula shortage and a slew of personal problems and scandals.
President Biden has also experienced a dramatic exodus of key White House personnel from his administration – including his top WH counsel Dana Remus, his WH press secretary Jen Psaki and more than 20 Black staffers.
The abrupt departure of such core WH personnel comes not only at a time when Biden’s poll numbers and approval ratings continue to nosedive, but also as the president and the rest of the Democratic Party prepare for the upcoming midterm elections in November.
“A lot of things are out of his control and we are frustrated and all Democrats — not just the White House but anyone with a platform — need to do a better of job of reminding Americans of how terrible it would be if Republicans take control,” Adrienne Elrod, a senior aide from Biden’s transition team, said last month.
