Associated Press poll: 55% disapprove of Biden’s performance as president

WASHINGTON ( Associated Press) — President Joe Biden is facing frequent but critical assessments of his leadership and the national economy after his party fared better than expected in the midterm elections.

A new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 43% of adults approve of Biden’s job as president, but 55% disapprove. This is similar to October, weeks before the November 8 election, which most Americans viewed as crucial to the future of the country.

Only about a quarter say the country is headed in the right direction or that the economy is in good shape. Both numbers have been largely negative during the year as inflation rose, and were more positive for Biden’s first year in office.

Mishana Connelly, a 44-year-old woman from Indiana, said she tries to be optimistic about next year but thinks things are going from bad to worse because “our president is incompetent” and the White House is in a mental state. are not fit. Conley, who works as a dietitian at a nursing home, said she was dismayed by the expenses.

She doesn’t blame Biden for inflation, but feels “he’s not doing anything to change it,” said Conley, who voted for former President Donald Trump.

Polls show that a majority of Democrats and Republicans think things are going wrong in the country, perhaps for different reasons.

But Democrats have shown renewed confidence in Biden, boosting his overall approval rating after a summer slump. Still, the 43% who support him in new polling is down somewhat from 48% a year ago and down from 60% nearly two years ago, a month after he took office.

77% of Democrats and only 10% of Republicans supported Biden.

While many Americans don’t entirely blame Biden for rising inflation, this year’s Associated Press-NORC polling showed that Biden was consistently beaten for the way he handled the economy.


The survey of 1,124 adults was conducted Dec. 1-5 using NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel and a sample drawn from a representative of the US population. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
