Joe Biden's Approval Rating Falls to All-Time Low After SOTU


GraceRandolph

Recommended Posts

President Joe Biden's average approval rating is currently at its lowest of his entire time in office despite a positive reaction to his recent State of the Union address.

Biden's approval rating currently stands at 37.4 percent, the lowest since he recorded an average of 37.6 percent in December 2023, according to poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight's national average calculations.

Biden's disapproval rating is at 56.5 percent, giving the president a net disapproval score of 19.2 points‚ÄĒboth of which are record markers of disapproval for the president.

The average ratings come amid long-standing concerns Biden has faced about his struggling poll numbers and a lack of enthusiasm for the 81-year-old's reelection bid. On Tuesday night, both Biden and Donald Trump were confirmed as the Democratic and Republican nominees for the 2024 election respectively, setting up a rematch of the 2020 race.

The White House has been contacted for comment via email.

Biden's low approval rating comes close on the heels of recent polls suggesting that potential voters were encouraged by the president's State of the Union address on March 7.

During the speech, Biden hit out at Trumpfor trying to win the November election by running on a campaign of "hate, anger, revenge, retribution" while also slamming the "insurrectionists" who "stormed this very Capitol and placed a dagger to the throat of American democracy" during the January 6 attack.

Biden listed his accomplishments in office, including stating the U.S. economy rose from being "on the brink" in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to one which is now "literally the envy of the world."

Heath Brown, an associate professor of public policy at the City University of New York, said Biden gave "one hell of a speech"on March 7.

"President Biden literally said 'hell' more often than I could count. He was a bulldog in this SOTU. He was combative, funny, and aggressive. It also was the most pro-union speech I've ever heard from a U.S. president," Brown previously told Newsweek.

"This clearly was the official launch of his reelection campaign, and a good one at that."

Biden voters are the new silent majority. Too embarrassing to publicly support but best believe when people enter the voting booths in November and they see Donald Trump or Joe Biden, people are voting for Biden.

That's every election. Voter turnout in 2020 was only like 66%. Again people say a lot of things on social media and do something differently when the time comes. These were the same talking points we heard in 2022 when there was supposed to be a red wave.

Trump support has increased drastically among the ignorant.

The 2016 Election was the only Election that Trump truly won and that was 8 years ago.

 

2018 Midterms: Republicans got washed

2020 Election: Republicans got washed

2022 Midterms: Republicans got washed

2024 Election (with Abortion Rights on the ballot and Trump facing several lawsuits): ???????

 

I'm not saying he CAN'T win, but I also don't think people understand how many people are still going to vote for Biden despite his flaws.

Your narrative is a bit off

 

2018: Democrats made gains but they actually underperformed compared to expectations.  They actually lost two senate seats and only had a 20 seat majority in the house.  
 

2020: this was one of the most razor thin victories in American history. Biden won by like 10,000 votes in a handful of key states.  What is important is any decline whatsoever from this year means Biden loses. 
 

2022:  DEMOCRATS LOST.  They lost the house.  A repeat of this year and they will certainly lose the presidency.

This hot take might've missed some crucial nuances…

The fact of the matter is that Roe is dead and Dems have no longterm solution to fix it or the court.

Only 66%? That was a record high. :rip:

If people feel less motivated to vote, that's a troubling statistic that shouldn't be ignored so carelessly.

After banning TikTok and waking up seeing porn hub is banned in my state I’m no longer voting Biden. We need to come to consensus on a third candidate QUICK and mass support that person while we still have social media.

It doesn't matter how many people will vote for Biden, though. The US isn't based on the popular vote.

 

All that matters is him getting the majority in a handful of swing states. And he had razor-thin victories in most of these states.

Humor me, let’s say Bernie had won the primary in 2020 and the presidency and had the 50/50 senate split with Manchin and sinema and then also lost the house in 2022. What would have played out differently than what we have now? He would have faced the same challenges Biden has. Democrats have several variations of bills for abortion rights. With sinema and manchin gone we have a real shot at carving out the filibuster finally. Granted we keep the senate.

With Manchin gone, you have no path to getting over 50 Democrats in the Senate ever again. There are also multiple vulnerable Democrats like Tester, Baldwin, and Sherrod Brown who, if/when they lose their seats, they're never flipping back (particularly in Montana and Ohio). And then Jon Ossoff is going to be washed when he's up against Brian Kemp in 2026.

 

That said, there's other centrists besides them who would stand in the way of filibuster reform if it came down to it; they were just happy to hide their opinions behind Manchin and Sinema because they know it wouldn't play well for them in a potential primary challenge. There's always a rotating villain waiting in the wings.
