Biden approval rating drops to record low 43% in Gallup polling

President Biden’s approval rating after eight months in office has dipped to 43%, according to a new Gallup poll, the lowest level of support the firm has recorded for the first-term president.

Gallup’s poll, conducted from Sept. 1 to 17, also marked the first time a majority disapproved of Biden’s job performance, with 53% of U.S. adults indicating they had a negative view of his presidency.

Biden’s approval rating has remained high among Democrats, though it reached its lowest this month at 90%, with only 6% of Republicans this month giving Biden high marks.
