A Quick Breakdown of Why Biden’s Approval Ratings Are So Bad


A new ABC News/Ipsos poll has shed light on exactly why President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are so terrible.


Get woke, go broke?


The poll, conducted on Dec. 10 and 11., found that on every issue surveyed but one, Biden failed to reach 50% approval.


The public’s disillusionment with how Biden is handling a host of crises – rising crime, inflation, immigration – helps explain why the president’s overall job approval ratings are seriously underwater.

  • 53% of respondents approved of the president’s response to the pandemic.
  • Biden’s approval numbers slipped in a number of areas since Ipsos last polled the public on the issues.
  • The president’s approval rating on economic recovery was 13 points higher in July.

His approval rating on crime and gun violence also dipped.


On the heels of shock electoral upsets in Virginia and elsewhere, even liberals are raising the alarm about the Democrats’ messaging crisis and warning it could cost the party big in upcoming elections.

  • “A national Democratic Party that talks up progressive policies at the expense of bipartisan ideas, and that dwells on Donald Trump at the expense of forward-looking ideas, is at risk of becoming a marginal Democratic Party appealing only to the left,” The New York Times editorial board wrote last month.
