It's time to say goodbye to the honeymoon.
According to RealClearPolitics' polling average, President Biden's approval of his job has changed for the first time since his presidency. This is despite the chaotic U.S. withdrawal form Afghanistan. More Americans are now disapproving than supporting his performance in office, which was a result of the Obama presidency.
This measure, which incorporates the results from recent national surveys, put Biden at 48.6 per cent disapproval, almost a full percentage point higher than the 47.8percent of Americans who said that they still approve of him performance.
This week's Reuters/Ipsos poll was included in the negative polling average. The result showed that Biden's approval rating plummeted by 7 points following the quick takeover of the Taliban.
Biden enjoyed a 20 point approval advantage in his early days as president. However, that support has slowly declined, with independents growing disillusioned with his administration as inflation rose and the coronavirus epidemic persisted.
