Gallup: Biden's 11-point approval rating drop is the worst of any president since WWII 😵
· · Oct 23, 2021 ·

President Joe Biden is on a historic run ... but not the good kind.

Biden started 2021 with a 56% approval rating. He's now down 11 points (44.7%) in the third quarter of 2021 -- the worst drop of any U.S. president since World War II.

"Biden began his term with relatively solid approval ratings, ranging between 54% and 57% from January through June," Jeffrey M. Jones writes at Gallup. "His approval dropped to 50% in July and 49% in August as coronavirus infections surged in the U.S. The chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in late August, which included the deaths of more than a dozen U.S. military personnel in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport, was likely the reason Biden's September job approval rating fell further to 43%."

"His latest rating suggests no improvement in his public support, as Democrats delayed passage of a pair of infrastructure bills due to internal disagreements on their size and scope. The U.S. economy continues to be plagued by supply chain issues, rising inflation and worker shortages, even as economic growth and stock values remain strong and the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level of the pandemic."

There's good and bad news with these ratings. On one hand, it's good that only a minority of Americans approve of Biden's performance as president. But the bad news is that the U.S. doesn't have a president that deserves our approval.

It's still pretty low, but I'd like to know what even those 44.7% of people approve!

Seriously... What on earth has Biden done so far that deserves the approval of Americans? I'm hard-pressed to find anything positive.

44.7% is still too dang high as far as I'm concerned!
