Biden’s approval ratings hit a historic low for a president at this stage of his presidency

According to a new Gallup poll, President Biden’s approval rating is the lowest ever for a president at this stage of his four-year term.

Biden averaged 38.7% approval during his 13th quarter in office, which began on 20 January and ended on 19 April. Not one of the other nine residents elected to their first term since Dwight Eisenhower had a lower 13th quarter approval rating.

Donald Trump and Barack Obama, Biden’s two predecessors in office, averaged 46.8% and 45.9% approval during the same period in their presidencies. The previous lowest rating belonged to George H.W. Bush in 1992, who still managed more than 40% (41.8%).

Presidents with less than 50% approval at this stage in their presidency tend not to get re-elected. Barack Obama is the sole exception.

Nixon, Reagan, Clinton and George W. Bush all managed to achieve over 50% approval during their 13th quarter. Eisenhower still has the record for highest average 13th quarter rating, with a whopping 73.2%.

Biden’s approval rating has hovered around 40% since his fourth quarter as president, falling from a high of around 56% in his first quarter.

As Gallup notes, Biden’s electoral prospects look worse with each passing day.

“With about six months remaining before Election Day, Biden stands in a weaker position than any prior incumbent, and thus faces a taller task than they did in getting reelected.”
