Americans’ approval of the job being done by President Biden this week plunged to a minus 18, with only 27% strongly approving while 45% strongly disapprove.

The numbers crunched by Rasmussen Reports showed that only 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of his performance. Fifty-four percent don’t.

The results give Biden a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18, the report said.

The results come from telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night, and are reported on a three-day rolling average basis.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Paul Bedard in his Washington Secrets pointed out it was Biden’s “lowest point yet.”

He also noted a separate John Zogby Strategies survey showed Biden with a 52% approval, but Rasmussen’s survey included “a bad sign for the White House: that 45% of likely voters said that they ‘strongly disapprove’ of Biden, equal to his total approval, which includes 27% who strongly approve of Biden.”

Party differences were stark with 77% of Democrats approving of Biden and 72% of Republicans disapproving.

But by a two-to-one margin, Americans see the nation going the “wrong direction” under Biden. It was 63% who report that view, to only 33% who claim it’s going in the right direction.

Bedard noted the “few days of terrible news about Biden’s handling of the fall of Afghanistan, more reports of building inflation, and spiking crime.”
