In addition to being underwater in 48 states, Biden’s approval sunk to a new low of 29 percent on Saturday, marking his worst approval since becoming president. On Monday, the record-low approval was met by his highest disapproval at 58 percent.
The president is also struggling with independent respondents, which make up an increasingly influential voter bloc, especially in recent years. Only 18 percent of independent respondents say they approve of Biden, while 68 percent disapprove, with 14 percent having no opinion.
Biden’s low job approval numbers have been exacerbated by many crises during his roughly 18 months in office.
During his presidency, the country has seen a supply chain crisis, a baby formula shortage, the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, and record-high inflation. On Wednesday, inflation was recorded as being at an annual rate of 9.1 percent in June, which was higher than the 8.8 percent that was initially expected.
Additionally, his marquee legislative proposal, the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act (BBB), has been dead in the water for some time. The country also recently saw a slew of record-high gas prices last month, with the average gas price reaching above $5.00 per gallon.
“Huge increases in the price of gasoline in June, which hit new all-time highs several times during the month, started to sap household and business spending on other items,” Breitbart News’s John Carney wrote on Wednesday.
The CIVIQS rolling job approval average had 224,492 responses tracked between January 20 and July 12. The CIVIQS tracking model captures the shifts in attitude of various groups over time across all 50 states and Washington, D.C. These changes can happen either rapidly or over time.
