According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, US Vice President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to a new low this week, matching the numbers achieved by his predecessor Donald Trump at the same stage in his presidency. Biden’s approval ratings are now at their lowest point in his presidency.
According to the study, 54 percent of respondents disapprove of Mr. Biden’s performance as president, with only 40 percent approving of his performance.
The poll was conducted online between March 21 and 22 and received responses from a total of 1,005 respondents, including 432 Democrats and 366 Republicans, who took part in it.
Mr. Trump’s approval rating was at 40% in mid-March of his second year in office, which was also a low point for him.
Later, in December 2017, the former president’s approval rating dropped to a record low of 33%.
According to the results of the Reuters/Ipsos poll, respondents said the economy was their top concern, followed by war and international conflicts.
The polls are being conducted at a time when Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last month has called attention to Mr. Biden’s management of international issues, as well as soaring inflation in the United States and surging gas costs.
77 percent of self-identified Democrats expressed support for the president’s job performance, compared to only 10 percent of self-identified Republicans and 27 percent of independents who expressed approval for the president’s job performance.
Earlier this week, a poll conducted by Yahoo News/YouGov indicated that 41 percent of those who responded approved of Mr. Biden’s job performance, while 53 percent were dissatisfied with his management of the presidential office.
Another poll conducted by The Wall Street Journal last week revealed that over half of those polled believed Mr. Biden would not run for re-election in 2024, according to results.
The president’s declining support ratings come at a time when Democrats are struggling to maintain control of the House of Representatives ahead of the November elections.

Both the House of Representatives and the Senate are controlled by the party, which has a razor-thin majority.
Mr. Biden’s popularity began to wane in mid-August of last year, as the number of Covid-19 deaths in the country began to grow and the United States came under fire for its haphazard military pullout from Afghanistan, among other factors.
