Reuters/Ipsos poll: President Biden’s approval rating has fallen to the lowest level of his presidency so far

News & Politics

President Joe Biden’s approval rating is under water, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national poll carried out Sept. 15-16.

According to the poll, while 50% of U.S. adults disapprove of the president’s performance in office, only 44% approve, marking his lowest approval so far. It appears that 46% had been the lowest his approval numbers had been in prior Reuters/Ipsos polls.

“The Reuters/Ipsos poll is conducted online in English throughout the United States. The latest poll gathered responses from 1,005 adults in total including 442 Democrats and 360 Republicans. It has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 4 percentage points,” according to Reuters.

While Biden’s rating is under water, President Donald Trump was even worse off at the same time in his presidency: “At the same point in Donald Trump’s presidency, about 38% of Americans approved of his performance in office, while 57% disapproved,” according to the outlet.
