Joe Biden's job approval rating is 40%, a step down from the 44% measured in August but still above his term-low 38% from July. In all other months in 2022, his approval rating has been in the 40% to 42% range.



The Oct. 3-20 survey finds 56% of Americans disapproving of Biden's performance, unchanged from September and midway between his highest (59% in July) and lowest (53% in August) disapproval scores this year.

Biden's approval ratings continue to be starkly different by political party, with 85% of Democrats and 4% of Republicans approving. The 81-point gap in party ratings matches the average for Biden's presidency to date, and is the same level of polarization measured in Donald Trump's job approval ratings, on average.

Thirty-nine percent of political independents approve of the job Biden is doing, which is slightly above the 36% average approval rating among independents from January to September.

Biden Seventh-Quarter Approval Average Fairly Typical

Biden averaged a 42% job approval rating during his seventh quarter in office, which spanned July 20 through Oct. 19. That average is similar to what most other elected presidents dating back to Jimmy Carter received during their seventh quarters in office. The major exceptions were George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, who had significantly higher ratings tied to the U.S. response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait and the 9/11 terrorist attacks, respectively.

Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Trump all averaged 41% or 42% approval during their seventh quarter, while Barack Obama's 45% average during that time was slightly higher.

I guess Biden should have started a war...........
In my opinion if he had stayed away from the Jim Crow 2.0/Jim Eagle/Ultra Super Duper Maga rhetoric he'd be polling better.

Stay with what got him elected in the first place....good old Joe. Let his surrogates in the party do the dirty work.

40% is about where America has been the past decade or so.....Tribalism is on the increase.....America is one phuqued up nation.....As Iowa races to become the next Mississippi, the USA races to become the next Soviet Union. All "we the people" wanna do is point fingers and bitch at "the other guys".....Solutions would require thinking, compromise and effort....America doesn't want any of that stuff......"we" might become successful if we did!

Joes approval ratings were in the high 50's last summer.

Plunged to 40 because of the economy, Afghanistan and I'd argue his administrations messaging.....in particular his messaging. Going after basically half the country ain't good for a President (see Trump).

Like I said...leave the attacks to your surrogates.

They plunged because he has been in office a year longer.......Dems do a piss poor job of "messaging" but they always have....its part of their beauty.....Anyone who believes Biden is responsible for today's economy is a moron....this thing has been coming at us for years and trying to emerge from Covid provided the "ooomph" needed for a full blown inflation.....Biden/Dems were in the WH at the wrong time......Honestly binsfield, the frustration here for me is that the GOP is not even offering a solution.....because theyb understand there is no comfortable solution to be had. Those who choose to deal with today's economy/inflation effectively are looking at short terms in office.

Damn. Interesting to see Reagan and Clinton that low early. Everyone knows damn well a resurgence of Biden into a good president isn’t in the cards though.

Why not?
contrary to MAGAt trash talk, Biden has dogs a lot of Presidential stuff in his fist 18 months. But then a lot of folks (such as you) wouldn’t know it if you fell unto it.
Biden's biggest fault to date is tge timing of his Presidency. Biden has had to undo a lot of shit done by his traitorous predecessor.

He’s clearly not all there mentally. It’s just extremely unlikely. Possible? Sure, but wouldn’t bet on it.

They’ve been out of the news since getting kicked out of the White House.

President Joe Biden’s younger dog Major this week was involved in his second biting incident of the month, the White House said Tuesday.
