The rating fell by 11.3%, according to a study conducted by the sociological service Gallup.
Americans’ approval rating of U.S. President Joe Biden’s activities as head of state has fallen by 11.3% since his inauguration. This follows from the results of a study published on Friday by the Gallup sociological service.
According to the service estimates, this is a record drop in the rating for the first nine months of the presidency among American leaders since the end of World War II. Gallup provides data on the first presidential term among the heads of state elected to this post following the elections results. In this regard, the statistics do not take into account the figures of Harry Truman (was vice president under Franklin Roosevelt and became president in 1945 after his death), Lyndon Johnson (was vice president under John F. Kennedy, became president after his death in 1963) and Gerald Ford (was vice president under Richard Nixon, became president after his resignation in 1974). The previous anti-record belonged to the 44th U.S. President Barack Obama (he held office in 2009-2017); his rating for the first nine months since taking office decreased by 10.1%.
In his first three months as head of state, Biden’s average approval rating was 56%. In July, it began to decline rapidly amid the deterioration of the coronavirus situation and the process of withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan.
