Biden approval slips again, Congress fares even worse: Poll

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Joe Biden's approval numbers continuing to slip through his first year in office, stuck in the upper 30s.

Respondents gave Biden a negative 37% job approval rating, with 52% disapproving and 12% not offering an opinion. That's down a single percentage point from his 38% to 53% approval rating on Oct. 6.

Additionally, 38% said they hold an overall "favorable opinion" of Biden, down significantly from May, when he was still fresh in office, with 49% rating him favorably.

Biden's numbers may be sinking like a ship, but members of Congress are faring even worse.

Per the Quinnipiac poll, respondents gave congressional Democrats a negative 30% approval rating to 60% disapproval. For congressional Republicans, it was 23% to 65%.

A look at what respondents chose as their top issues may provide insight as to why the approval numbers sit where they do. Quinnipiac determined the economy to be the most urgent issue facing the country today, selected by 19% of respondents. That was followed by COVID-19 (16%) and immigration (14%).

There was a sharp partisan contrast as to which issues are the most important. Republicans selected immigration (28%), the economy (24%), and the national debt (10%) as most important. Democrats chose COVID-19 (28%), healthcare (14%), and climate change (13%), leaving no overlap between the two parties.

When you have someone who can't answer questions and gave us our worst military debacle since Vietnam, it's not hard to figure out why his poll numbers have crashed. Maybe it's time they let some adults start to run things, we need a new election.

My guess is that Biden will have weak polling number during his term due to the fact that the Dem party is split on some major issues and GOPers will generally not support him, period.  

Progressives and GOPers are likely to disapprove of Biden and many moderates and independents will if Biden can't get Congress to pass what is viewed as compromised legislation.

He will have weak polling because he looks dazed, confused, and inept. He's not going to get any sharper.

Glad you understand what is happening.

The Democratic Party has too many members who see only their particular issues as important and are unwilling to compromise on them.

It does represent a broad spectrum of Americans - far more than the narrow minded, right wing extremist, Trump cult party.

Of course I am biased, but I do not see Pres. Biden as dazed, confused or inept.  Especially compared to his immediate predecessor. 

He has weak polling because the Democratic Party is the most representative party in America.  It has people from the left, the center and even some fairly conservative.

Why do you persist in accusing Pres. Biden of the "worst military disaster since Vietnam?"

Why do you never state to what you are specifically referring by that statement.  

There are other polls besides Quinnipiac.

Regardless, he is still polling better than your man-child, Donnie Boy Trump did.

He likes to throw untruths out there to get a rise out of people.  Like Biden is responsible for people being vaccine hesitant.  I think he enjoys being told over a hundred times how illogical and untrue that is.

Because he gave us our worst military debacle since Vietnam, it's that simple. He handed over a country to terrorists and allowed them to dictate our withdrawal >>> even the images look the same.

PS Many of the White House were on vacation, the height of incompetence.

What exactly was the debacle?  Are you speaking about the withdrawal?  The one committed to by Trump and planned and performed by US military?  The one caused by the failure of the Afghan government, military and people to do their duty?

You know that these approval ratings are based mostly on just perceptions.    Clearly the perception by the MSM,  even pro-Biden CNN was that the US exit from Afgan was a debacle.    

I'm trying to get MM to say whether or not the withdrawal, the Trump agreement to leave the country or the war itself was the "debacle."   Of course, my opinion is that while Biden said when we would leave based on the Trump agreement and his own feelings about time to leave, the US military and State Department agreed that they could effectuate an orderly withdrawal.  They then planned it and carried it out. 

What neither the US military, DOS or the Biden administration could really foresee is the total collapse of the Afghan government, military and police forces so quickly.  Also the wholesale abandonment of their country by Afghans.  Some suspected it, but doubt anyone believed how bad it would become.  So, you can't really blame Biden alone for the "debacle."  But MM will never understand that because he does not want to.

You're trying to discuss substance with MM?     Ok,  I'll stay out of that.

As for Biden's approval rating, the failure of Dems to get their agenda enacted, inflation, economic fall-out from COVID, etc. will probably hurt them more than the withdrawal from Afghanistan in the long run.
