Americans across the country have become less pleased with Biden’s work as president in recent weeks. While Biden was already experiencing a downward shift in his approval ratings it seems his chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan coupled with his border crisis has sent his approval ratings into a free-fall. In Iowa, a new poll conducted by the Des Moines Register-Mediacom nearly two-thirds of Iowans disapproves of Biden’s job as president.
The Hill reports:
Sixty-two percent of those surveyed say they disapprove of the job Biden is doing in the White House, compared to only 31 percent who give the president positive marks. Another 7 percent say they’re unsure about his job performance.
An earlier Des Moines Register-Mediacom Iowa poll conducted in June showed Biden’s approval hovering at 43 percent, with a slight majority — 52 percent — disapproving. The last time the poll showed Biden’s approval above water was in March.
Biden’s current 31 percent approval rating among Iowans is lower than former President Trump’s worst score in the state. In December 2017, Trump’s approval in the Iowa poll dropped to 35 percent.
Despite voting twice for former President Obama in 2008 and 2012, Iowa went for Trump in both 2016 and 2020.
President Biden has faced declining approval ratings across the country spelling trouble for him as Trump continues to hint at another presidential campaign in 2024.
