Biden’s approval ratings have fallen to their lowest levels in nearly two years

US President Joe Biden’s public approval rating fell this month to its lowest level in nearly two years, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed, a warning sign for his reelection efforts.

The poll, which was conducted over four days and concluded on Monday (20), showed that only 36% of Americans approved of Biden’s performance as president, down from 38% in April. This was a return to the lowest approval rating of his presidency, last seen in July 2022.

While this month’s decline was within the poll’s 3 percentage point margin of error, it may not bode well for Biden when he faces Republican Donald Trump in the November 5 presidential election.

Biden, a Democrat, has been widely tied with Trump in national polls asking voters how they would vote. But Trump achieved a slight lead over Biden in several opinion polls in states seen as the most important in determining the winner of the electoral college in the US presidential election.

The poll showed Biden’s weaknesses in addition to some strengths. The state of the economy was considered the main issue, with 23% of participants choosing it as the most important problem facing the country. About 21% considered political extremism to be the main issue, and 13% chose immigration.

About 40% of respondents said that Trump, who held the presidency from 2017 to 2021, had better policies for the American economy, compared to 30% who chose Biden, while the rest said they did not know or did not answer the question. .
