The Afghanistan crisis, the border crisis, Covid-19 controversies, rising consumer prices, questions about his mental acuity-- yet President Biden still ranks slightly higher than President Trump did at the same point in their presidencies.
That's according to the Daily Presidential Tracking Poll by Rasmussen Reports.
President Biden hit the 44% mark on Friday compared to President Trump's 42%.
Meantime, in 2017 at this point in his presidency, Donald Trump was garnering headlines for being a target in Mueller's "Trump-Russia" probe that ended up fizzling out, moving to end the "Dreamers" Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal immigrant program, and ongoing media accusations of racism.
Trump hit a high point his first year in office year on Jan. 26, 2017, with 56% approval compared to Biden's 48% at the same point.
