Biden’s job approval numbers fall to low again in his presidency
Just nine months after starting his presidency, Joe Biden is suffering from his lowest number of job approvals to date.
According to the latest Economist / YouGov released on Wednesday, Biden’s job approval rating has dropped to just 39%.
Biden has seen a steady decline in the number of approvals since his botched pullout from Afghanistan.

A handful of different issues are causing Biden’s job approval numbers tank.
As groundbreaking COVID cases continue among those vaccinated and Americans expect mask and vaccine warrants at their child’s work or school, a recent Gallup poll showed that a large number of Americans, 42%, don’t see the Biden administration as having a path to tackling the virus.
Another important factor is the economy. August employment report indicates that only 235,000 jobs were added to the economy, well below the estimated 720,000 – and despite the number of vacancies hovering around 10 million.
But by far, the disastrous withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan was the driving force behind the implosion of job approval.
The @NY Times hasn’t updated his “live” tracking of Joe Biden’s approval ratings for almost 4 months.
It couldn’t be due to Biden’s rapid drop in approval ratings, could it? https://t.co/Lh8Ccai7TA

A look at the swing neighborhoods
Joe Biden’s approval numbers are dropping in many swing constituencies he won in the 2020 presidential election. The biggest change can be seen in Michigan’s 8th District, where approval for Biden’s job has fallen to 42%.
The numbers are down three to seven points in 7th from Florida, 11th from Michigan, 2nd from Virginia and 8th from Washington. Joe Biden carried all of these districts in 2020, and currently all of them are represented by Democrats.
And in what could be a glimpse of things to come for Democrats, Biden is down eight points in Iowa’s 3rd District, a district represented by a Democrat, but one that Donald Trump wore in 2020.
This is what REGRET looks like. Biden poll #s crater in the basement in the midst of its many national and international crises. The first step in putting the brakes on this disastrous administration is to take over the House and Senate midway through next year. https://t.co/tTRoGa3SsA

Will Biden work in 2024?
A recent Emerson College poll found that if the 2024 presidential election took place today, Donald Trump would be ahead of Joe Biden by 47% to 46%. That is, provided that both run in 2024.
Donald Trump has hinted that it is 2024. Many other possible GOP candidates do not have or will not say if they are considering a race until Trump makes an announcement.
Joe Biden will be 79 in a few weeks, already making him the oldest president. The state of the country at that time and any possible health concerns could be Biden’s decision-makers.
Democrats are already worried about the 2022 midterms. By 2024, the last thing they might need is Joe Biden running for reelection.
Some ABC experts seemed shocked to see recent polls showing Joe Biden’s approval ratings plummeting. https://t.co/PvZRpzuu46
