Biden Sinks: Lowest in Modern History

Joe Biden

( – President Joe Biden has sunk to an unbelievable new low as he has recorded the lowest 13th-quarter approval ratings among modern presidents as he approaches an electoral season in which he seeks reelection.

A new Gallup poll released at the end of last week demonstrates that Biden’s job approval score averaged 38.7% between January 20 and April 19.

This figure is notably lower than the 13th-quarter approval ratings of any of the last nine presidents who were in their first terms, i.e., over the past seven decades, The Daily Caller reports.

Gallup’s data illustrates that the previous record low at this critical juncture in a presidential reelection year was held by former Republican President George H.W. Bush, who had an approval rating of 41%. Bush Sr. did not secure a second term in office.

Further exposing the significance of Biden’s ratings, the analysis compares him to other past presidents since Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.

Notably, former Republican President Donald Trump and former Democratic President Barack Obama had the next lowest ratings, with 46.8% and 45.9%, respectively, at the same point in their presidencies.

The analysis also pointed out that former Democrat President Jimmy Carter was the only other president who had a sub-50% approval rating at this stage of his presidency, recording a 47.7% support level. Like Bush Sr., Carter was unsuccessful in his bid for reelection.

Conversely, Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush all maintained approval ratings between 51% and 55% during their respective 13th quarters and were subsequently reelected.

Eisenhower stood out with a remarkably high approval rating of 73.2% as he easily secured a second term.

The current political landscape heading into the 2024 elections shows Biden trailing slightly behind Trump.

According to the RealClearPolitics average for a potential 2024 head-to-head rematch, Biden has not led Trump since mid-September 2023, and currently lags by a mere 0.3 points.

Additionally, Trump is ahead of Biden in key battleground states including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, and Wisconsin.
