Biden Approval Rating Among Democrats Dipping

Depending upon the poll, Biden’s approval rating is anywhere from about 48 percent to 55 percent.

We know these polls are not an exact science, so we look at consistent trends rather than actual numbers to get a better feel for what they represent.

If Biden’s people are looking at the polls since he took office, they will notice an alarming trend… that Democrats are starting to drift.

Buyer’s Remorse

When Biden was awarded the presidency, I was very adamant that I believed moderate Democrats and Republicans that voted for Biden because of Trump’s personality would have buyer’s remorse.

It has taken all of five months for that to happen.

Honestly, Joe Biden had nowhere to go but down after he took office because his approval ratings were absurdly high when he moved into the White House.

If memory serves, he had an approval rating on the pandemic of over 60 percent… on his first day in office!

Like Trump, Biden was heavily dependent upon his own party for his approval rating, but that has been sliding backward over the last few months.

This is clearly not an outlier or a one-month trend, as we have seen this slide beginning in late March and early April.

When Biden first took office, he had, in some polls, a 98 percent approval rating among Democrats.

That slid down to 95 percent in April, not necessarily a concern because that is about typical for an approval rating within the party.

However, in the most recent poll, Joe Biden has slipped down to 86 percent within his party, which is extremely low.

Biden is also slipping on the economy, dropping four points, down to 48 percent.

He has also dropped eight points for combating gun violence, another key issue on his agenda.

The only real area where Biden has not taken a hit is concerning the handling of the pandemic, something he has actually had very little to do with since taking office.

Vaccine manufacturing and distribution were well underway when he came into office, so he is benefitting significantly from Operation Warp Speed.

Something that could be a major problem that is simmering is the unemployment rate among black Americans.

When Trump took over office in January 2017, he inherited a 7.4 percent unemployment rate, which had declined to 5.6 just prior to the pandemic. Today, the unemployment rate for black Americans is at 9.1 percent, down only .1 percent since January 2021.

Biden will get some leeway on this while benefits are still available, but when they run out, if these people cannot find work, it will give Republicans significant ammo to use against him.

Were it not for the perception that Joe Biden actually did something regarding the pandemic, his approval rating would be well under 50 percent right now.

Joe may not know it, but he is hanging on by a single thread and if there happens to be a surge in COVID again this fall and winter, that thread will break.
