The following is an excerpt from Gallup News.
President Joe Biden’s latest job approval rating is 40%, his sixth consecutive reading in the 40% to 42% range.
Biden is also underwater in ratings of his handling of four issues -- the environment (43% of Americans approve), energy policy (38%), foreign affairs (38%) and the economy (32%).
Americans’ ratings of Biden’s handling of his overall job, foreign affairs and the economy were measured last month and are not significantly different in the latest poll, which was conducted March 1-23.
Biden’s overall job approval rating has not exceeded 44% since August 2021, during his first year in office.
His ratings on the economy and foreign affairs, which are included periodically, were at the majority level only at the start of his term.
This is the third time Gallup has gauged opinions of Biden’s handling of the environment and energy policy.
During that poll’s field period, the Senate and House passed, and Biden signed, the Inflation Reduction Act that his administration billed as “the most significant climate legislation in U.S. history.”
Since then, Biden’s rating on the environment has dropped seven percentage points, while on energy policy, it is down five points.
Biden has consistently had overall job approval ratings of 78% or higher among Democrats, including the latest, 87%, while his ratings among Republicans have been below 8% since August 2021, including 3% in the current poll.
Independents’ evaluations of Biden have varied more -- 61% approved of Biden at the beginning of his presidency, and a majority did so through June 2021. Since September 2021, independents’ rating has been at or below 40%, including the current 35%.
