A recent poll has shown that President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped due to the recent issues hounding against his administration.
Based on the latest data gathered by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, Biden has a 50 percent approval rating while 49 percent disapprove.
The approval rating is down from 54 percent in August and 59 percent in July.
Among the issues affecting the approval rating of Biden in September are the harried and deadly evacuation from Afghanistan, mounted border patrol agents charging at Haitian refugees, the unshakable threat of the coronavirus with its delta variant, and the legislative drama of Biden trying to negotiate his economic, infrastructure and tax policies through Congress.
Pollsters noted that since July, Biden’s approval rating has dipped slightly among Democrats (from 92% to 85%) and among independents who don’t lean toward either party (from 62% to 38%). Just 11% of Republicans approve of the president, which is similar to July.
The approval also dipped somewhat among both white Americans (49% to 42%) and Black Americans (86% to 64%).
