Biden humiliated as approval rating sinks to new low – the same as Donald Trump

The results match the two Presidents following a poll taken on Monday by Investor’s Business Daily (IBD)/TIPP. The 46th President now sees his rating stand at 44.4 percent, down a concerning 4.8 percent over the last month.

Mr Biden and his Democratic party face challenging mid-term elections coming up in November.

The Republicans are hoping a resurgent flow of support for former President Donald Trump will spur on results and see the Reds win the House of Representatives and the Senate, disrupting Mr Biden’s power in the process.

Mr Biden’s 44.4 percent approval rating in the IBD/TIPP poll excludes respondents who were unsure or declined to state an opinion about their approval of the job the President is doing.

The poll was conducted among 1,355 US adults in early February.

At the same time in November 2018, Mr Trump stood at 42.6 percent in the polls.

The similarity in the polls could spell tough times for Mr Biden, as the former President lost control of the House of Representatives, seeing Nancy Pelosi return to her role.

The swing in balance led to the house starting impeachment proceedings against Mr Trump in 2019 and in 2021.

Some Republicans are hopeful a change in balance this time round could lead to measures being taken to impeach Mr Biden.

Mr Biden’s approval has been in negative territory since August 30—the day before the final withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan—and there is little to indicate it will improve in the near future.

Recently, Mr Biden has taken a tougher approach in his rhetoric over the ongoing tension between Russia and Ukraine.

The President has warned Russia will face dire consequences should it invade Ukraine, including economic sanctions, and the threat of shutting down the NordStream II pipeline.

Mr Biden has also agreed to send extra US troops to Eastern Europe as a sign of unity and security towards its NATO allies.

At home, the President has however achieved some success.

His securing of a $2tn rescue package to help the US emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as seeing some 6 million jobs created will stand him in good stead.

Traditionally, Presidential ratings in the US increase with a hot war according to Professor Scott Lucas from the University of Birmingham.

For many citizens in the US, Ukraine, as it stands, offers little incentive to back any President.

In a direct attack on the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, CNN reported Mr Biden should be thankful he is not doing as bad as the PM.

The report claims Mr Johnson’s ratings are as low as Richard Nixon’s when he became entangled in the Watergate scandal.

Mr Johnson, according to the American media news outlet right now has a popularity rating of about 24 percent among Britons, across different polling sources.

While Mr Biden isn’t as popular as he once was within his own party, he is unlikely to face any serious challenge if he decided to run for another term for President.
