President Joe Biden’s time in the White House has been plagued by a weak economy, slow job growth, skyrocketing inflation, the Ukraine war, an illegal immigration crisis at the southern border, and the disastrous and deadly withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.
As a result, Biden has suffered the consequences as polls show he’s one of the most unpopular presidents in US history.
An NBC News found that 68% of voters say they are concerned that Biden does not have the necessary mental and physical health to be president.
This includes 43% of Democrats, which is twice as high as the same poll in 2020. An ABC News in July found Biden’s approval rating is 38% with 57% disapproving.
Polls show that Biden’s approval rating has been declining since he took office. The economy is the top issue for Americans, and many are unhappy with Biden’s handling of it. It is important to note that polls can be volatile, and Biden’s approval rating could change in the future. However, the current polls suggest that he is facing a difficult political environment.
