A new poll indicates that President Biden’s popularity is already dropping after being sworn into the White House a little over a month ago. A recent poll conducted by Monmouth University indicates Biden’s overall approval rating has already dropped 3 points. However, the sharpest uptick comes from Biden’s disapproval rating- already up 12 points.
In late January, Biden’s disapproval rating stood at 30% but has now spiked to 42%.
Fox News reports:
Biden holds a 51% approval rating in a Monmouth University survey released on Wednesday. That’s down slightly from the 54% of Americans who gave the new president a thumbs-up in late January, days after his inauguration.
More noticeable is rise in Biden’s disapproval rating – from 30% in late January to 42% now. The rise comes as more people form an opinion of Biden – with those saying they had “no opinion” of the president plunging from 16% soon after his inauguration to 8% now.
“It’s probably not a surprise that Biden’s honeymoon period has closed quickly,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray highlighted. But Murray noted that the president maintains a net positive rating in the new poll, which was conducted Feb. 25–March 1.
