Biden's public approval rating up three points to 45%

From this week...

U.S. President Joe Biden's public approval rating rose this week to 45%, boosted by stronger support from within his Democratic Party, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll completed on Tuesday. The two-day national poll found that 50% of Americans disapprove of Biden's job performance as the country struggles with high inflation and Russia's invasion of Ukraine has pushed geopolitical concerns to the fore. Biden's approval rating has been below 50% since August and last month sunk to the lowest levels of his presidency. But his rating rose in recent days by three percentage points, up from 42% in a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted March 28-29. Further increases, if sustained, could assuage the rising concern in the Democratic Party it could lose its narrow congressional majorities in the Nov. 8 midterm elections, which would torpedo Biden's legislative agenda. In a positive sign for Democratic enthusiasm, Biden's approval rating within his own party rose to 82% from 75% the prior week. Only 15% of Republicans approve of his job in office. The Reuters/Ipsos poll is conducted online in English throughout the United States. The latest poll gathered responses from a total of 1,005 adults, including 443 Democrats and 381 Republicans. It has a credibility interval - a measure of precision - of four percentage points.

So, his numbers are improving. He's getting blamed for things he has no control over, of course, which is why his numbers are low to begin with - the pandemic, inflation which is happening worldwide, and supply chain issues, some of which are now being caused by Texas' rogue governor.

Finally. I have been on the Joe bandwagon since day one. He's doing the very best he can given the almost insurmountable odds.

by Anonymousreply 2April 15, 2022 10:03 PM

What the hell is Biden doing wrong? Nothing. I think he's doing a flat-out amazing job. And factoring in so many things in crisis, Joe Biden is an outstanding president.

What the fuck do people want? Always remember the alternative. And no fucking way can we go back to the criminal Trump or the Repigs in general at all!!

Cheers for President Biden!

Inspired by a thread asking what JB could do to raise his poll numbers, I'm guessing he'll make an unannounced visit to Europe this Easter weekend, maybe even meet Ukraine's President Zelenskyy for a photo op. Afterwards he'll meet with U.S. service members at one of the US bases, probably in Germany. Both he Jill could go.

Anyone else think so?

by Anonymousreply 4April 15, 2022 10:10 PM

These popularity polls are beyond meaningless, no matter who the President is.

First off, all the people who voted against a president are going to say he or she is doing a terrible job.

Secondly, all that matters is what happens on Election Day.

by Anonymousreply 5April 15, 2022 10:14 PM

538's average of the major polling organizations show Biden's approval at 41.6%

by Anonymousreply 6April 15, 2022 10:22 PM

r5 they're a good marker as to how well the President is doing in creating perception. I see a lot of attacks against Biden for no reason, blaming him for things he has no control over, and it's not getting a lot of pushback from the usual left wing pundits because they have never been enthusiastic about Biden. So their messaging wins the day. Biden's doing a lot of good things, but the amount of pure bile and lying coming from other parties with their own agendas is crowding the conversation.

by Anonymousreply 7April 15, 2022 10:25 PM

Bump, because I'm tired of the trolls spamming the site with negative Biden posts.

by Anonymousreply 8April 16, 2022 5:51 AM

R8 so am I.

by Anonymousreply 9April 16, 2022 10:18 AM

To be honest, Russian propagandists and trolls are a bit busy these days, you know, having to explain to us why they are shelling cities, killing civilians, etc.

by Anonymousreply 10April 16, 2022 10:59 AM

R8 That may be in direct response to the people whose political opinions don’t extend beyond “the GOP sucks”. Okay sure but what about the guy in charge? He’s not exactly doing a bang up job.

And aside from the fact that gas prices and inflation are tied to decisions Biden has made, many of you blame COVID on Trump as if he can control what a virus does. Biden has WAY more control over our economic problems than Trump ever had over COVID.

by Anonymousreply 11April 16, 2022 11:01 AM

R11 you are simply wrong.

Please explain how the worldwide inflation is directly tied to Biden. It is not just happening in the US. Only myopic people with no sense of international commerce think that.

Please explain how Biden has done anything but improve the situation Trump left us in in regards to COVID, and the amount of grifting and thievery that Trump enabled with his initial flailing attempts to address the Covid crisis, when ignoring it didn't work. Trump turned Covid into a political issue, which led to thousands of unnecessary deaths (and still is).

Please explain how Biden is to blame for the red state governors doing everything they could to make Covid worse and the economy worse, up to including the current tactic the Texas governor is undertaking, to slow trade down coming into the US.

Biden is doing an excellent job, with shit coming at the US from all fronts. We knew whoever got the job after Trump would be cleaning up all sorts of shit - that would be more than enough! and then you add the pandemic in and the geopolitical instability with Russia thinking they would take advantage of the situation by taking over Ukraine, he has done an astounding job navigating this. What he has done, often quietly, through diplomacy, will be studied for decades to come as an exemplary example of how to deal with a clusterfuck of biblical proportions.

by Anonymousreply 12April 16, 2022 4:04 PM

Bump, because I want attention! Me, me, me! But really, I'm curious whether anyone else thinks similarly to my post at r4.

Really, doesn't anyone want to take odds on that happening?

by Anonymousreply 13April 16, 2022 9:19 PM

No, the WH press room has said unequivocally that he's not going to take a train through active war zone Ukraine to meet with the PM in a secret area in the capitol because that would be foolish, but we will find out soon enough if he spends Easter with the troops.

by Anonymousreply 14April 17, 2022 1:33 AM

R12 your comment is so hyper partisan that you sound like a maga Trump supporter. I voted for Biden and I can't even take your comment seriously.

by Anonymousreply 15April 17, 2022 1:48 AM

R15 it's not hyper-partisan if it's true. I'm not here to point out every thing he could have done better. If you chose to read it as "he's made no mistakes" that's your own projection.

And I think it's interesting that you chose to critique my comment over the "Biden is useless yet responsible for all bad things" post above. You're a Democrat, I'm sure - we always attack our own.

by Anonymousreply 16April 17, 2022 2:38 AM

R7 and r 16 are the same person. He probably thinks Biden can do no wrong and he walks on water. It doesn't matter to him how fucked up things are right now. You could tell he is privileged and can afford to pay more for necessities. The privileged Biden voter in a nut shell.

by Anonymousreply 17April 17, 2022 10:02 AM

R17 yes, I made both posts, I wasn't pretending otherwise.

You can go fuck yourself. Stop blaming Biden for shit that isn't his fault, and please don't even START with the pretending that Republicans are the party of the "working man" or the "oppressed". You are so very full of shit.

by Anonymousreply 18April 17, 2022 10:12 AM

R17 you are also R15 and your cover is blown. You clearly aren't a Democrat.

by Anonymousreply 19April 17, 2022 10:15 AM

R19 neither are you sane you have blown your cover for been a left leaning nutjob. You are the left version of the maga idiots.

by Anonymousreply 20April 17, 2022 1:18 PM

R20 yeah, exactly as I thought. You couldn't even hold it together for more than a few posts.

Probably a bump from Millennials who were enrolled in the now-defunct Corinthian "college" and got their student loans erased.

by Anonymousreply 23June 13, 2022 5:03 PM

i don't think we'll see a president with approval ratings that sustain over 50% anymore.

40% on either side will never budge across partisan lines. And the rest are too fickle to commit to anything for too long.

(^.^) yes it's up like the price of gas, cars, rents and the national debt. Unfortunately stocks are way down!

None of this matters.

Jerome Powell is actually our president, anyway.

by Anonymousreply 30June 13, 2022 8:03 PM

When I was in school they said 38 was less than 39 which was less than 40, but that's a Euro-centric view of things we must go beyond.

Can we please stop bumping this? People get excited only to find out the numbers are hitting new lows.

Lots can change between now and 2024 people might grow to like Biden more

In that case, people, bump the shit out of this everyday. Every damn day.

538 now has his polling average at 39.7%

Not good.

by Anonymousreply 35June 13, 2022 11:40 PM

My prediction is that shortly after the midterms Obama will tell Biden politely but firmly not to run again, with the unspoken threat that Obama will endorse somebody else if he does.

by Anonymousreply 36June 13, 2022 11:46 PM

New record low approval

RCP 39.6

At the same point

Trump 41.1

Obama 57.2

by Anonymousreply 37June 22, 2022 10:35 PM

Today 538's average of polls has Biden's approval even lower at 39.3%

by Anonymousreply 38June 22, 2022 11:05 PM

I wouldn't be too concerned until the number hits 35%.
