(GALLUP) Biden’s 3rd year approval average 2nd worst in history at under 40%

The following is from Gallup News.

  • Only Jimmy Carter had a lower third-year average
  • Current job approval rating for Biden is 41%
  • 78-point Democratic-Republican gap in Year 3 ties for fifth largest

During President Joe Biden’s third full year in office, spanning Jan. 20, 2023, to Jan. 19, 2024, an average of 39.8% of Americans approved of his job performance.

Among prior presidents in the Gallup polling era who were elected to their first term, only Jimmy Carter fared worse in his third year.

Carter averaged 37.4% approval in a year in which gas prices soared, inflation reached double digits and Iranian militants took U.S. citizens hostage.

Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon also had sub-50% third-year averages. Dwight Eisenhower’s 72.1% is the highest for a third-year president.

Biden’s third-year average was lower than both his first-year (48.9%) and second-year(41.0%) averages. Though better than his third-year average, his first- and second-year ratings also ranked as the second lowest for recent presidents, ahead of only Trump in both years.

Biden registered new personal lows of 37% job approval in AprilOctober and November2023 surveys.

Gallup’s latest job approval rating for Biden, from a Jan. 2-22 survey, is 41%, while 54% disapprove of how he is performing his job. Since September 2021, after the troubled withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, Biden’s approval rating has ranged from the high 30s to low 40s.

Before that, during the first six months of his presidency, he enjoyed majority-level approval ratings. (Continued…)
