The survey showed that Americans now disagree with President Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 epidemic, with 48% of respondents saying they approve of the President’s handling of the pandemic, while 50% say they disagree.
The president’s overall job approval rating was also underwater, with 38% of respondents acknowledging that the work was approved by the president.
“Confused with confidence, skeptical of leadership, and challenged on overall strength, President Biden’s approval rating is bumping everywhere as the Trump administration continues its downward slide to an unseen number,” Quinnipiac University voting analyst Tim Malloy said of the numbers.
Dissatisfaction with Biden’s work performance may be problematic for Democrats as the 2022 midterm elections approach, with Quinnipiac pointing out that Republicans lead Democrats in their latest general congressional poll, 47-44.
“While the numbers are not overwhelming, they point to a potentially ominous trend for Democrats because a majority of voters recommend the party to control the House,” Malloy said.
