(PresidentialHill.com)- Biden’s net approval rating dropped seven points in one week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday.
Only 38% approved of Biden this week, while 58% disapproved, for a net approval rating of -20. Last week, 41% approved of Biden, and 54% disapproved, with a net approval rating of -13.
The poll sampled 1,005 Americans with a four-point margin of error. Those tested included 449 Democrats and 357 Republicans.
Reuters noted the survey is an ominous indication for Biden’s Democratic Party’s chances in the Nov. 8 midterm elections despite a spate of Democratic legislative successes that Biden’s allies think would help them defend their narrow congressional majorities in November.”
The establishment media has been inflating Democrats’ expectations of keeping the House and Senate, but Biden’s polling, a barometer for midterm elections, runs contrary to the media’s narrative. Reuters predicted that Democrats would lose the House of Representatives in November and likely the Senate.
To regain the Senate, Republicans must keep seats in Wisconsin, Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and one more state. Other Senate elections in Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia are unsettled.
The poll also indicated that Joe Biden’s recession is the top problem for Republicans and Democrats. Throughout Biden’s administration, the nation’s economy has been devastated by 40-year-high inflation and record-high gas prices. Biden’s idea to tackle the situation is to spend large amounts of money to avert global warming.
A poll revealed that one in eight Democrats cited the environment as the top problem, and one in 10 cited the elimination of national abortion rights. Immigration and crime were the second biggest concerns for one in 10 Republicans.
Crime and illegal immigration have risen under Joe Biden. One year after Biden granted Vice President Kamala Harris the responsibility of halting illegal immigration, over 221,300 illegal migrants crossed the U.S.-Mexico border. RNC researchers find that this is a new high for the Biden administration and the worst month since the Department of Homeland Security was created in 2002. The number is the third highest on record.
Crime is also a huge concern for Americans. According to Fox News, crime in seven of the nation’s largest cities has risen by 5% to 40% since 2021. The analyzed cities included were Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
