Joe Biden’s approval rating has begun to tank amid unpopular policies and spending bills, according to a poll published last week.
Monmouth University’s poll found that Biden’s approval rating dipped below 50 percent for the first time since January. The survey was conducted via phone surveys among 810 Americans between June 9 and June 14.
The research concluded that Biden currently holds a 48% approval rating which is six points lower than his April approval rating. His support from Democrats and Independents has also take a nosedive of 10 to 11 points.
Biden, “gets a positive rating from 86% of Democrats (down from 95%), 36% of independents (down from 47%), and 19% of Republicans (up from 11%). Prior Biden approval levels registered 51% in March and 54% in January,” Monmouth University stated.
At least 47 percent of Americans have expressed “serious” concerns over the probability of increased inflation, while 24 percent of respondents expressed “mild” concerns, the survey revealed.
What could be driving Biden’s steep decline in approval rating is Americans “concern” that his “plans could lead to inflation.” His biggest spending policies include the Covid stimulus package, infrastructure proposal, and various bids to expand healthcare, education, and other services.
Unsurprisingly, the percentage of Americans who believe the country is headed in the “right direction” also tanked from 46 percent in April to just 37 percent in June. Over the same period of time, the number of Americans who believe the country is going on the “wrong track,” increased from 50 percent to 59 percent.
Monmouth University’s poll comes amid Biden’s questionable cognitive abilities that were exacerbated on the world stage during his attendance at the G7 Summit as well as his meeting with Russian leader Putin. Meanwhile, domestically, Biden has also failed to take charge of the border crisis, despite reports that illegal immigration spiked 674 percent from last May according to Breitbart.
