Biden’s rating tumbles, but it’s still in OK range
US President Joe Biden has the lowest rating since he took office as head of the White House. It is noted that in July, the level of support for Biden from Americans fell from 56 to 50%.
This is according to the results of its own sociological research, the American Institute for the Study of Public Opinion named after Gallup reports. In particular, according to a study conducted in the period from July 6 to July 21, at least 45% of respondents are dissatisfied with the actions of the US president.
According to sociologists, the level of support for Biden began to fall after the actions to combat the COVID-19 epidemic slowed down sharply.
At the same time, Biden’s rating is also declining in the conditions of an extremely strong political split in society, which has been observed in the United States over the past few years. At the moment, the actions of the US president are approved by 90% of the surveyed supporters of the Democratic Party and 12% of Americans who support the Republican Party.
At the same time, 48% of respondents who are not supporters of any of the US political parties also support Biden’s policy.
Over the past three months, Biden’s support rating has remained at 53%, while the average after he took office was 56%.
However, Biden’s rating is higher than his predecessors for the same period, in particular, higher than Bill Clinton (44%) and Donald Trump (38.8%), but lower than Barack Obama (62%).
According to sociologists, a 3-6% decline in Biden’s rating during this period is typical for all recent American presidents. However, according to experts, in the second half of this year, the rating of support for Biden by voters will continue to fall.
In particular, Biden’s rating will continue to depend on support from supporters of the Democratic Party and those who do not support any party.
