President Joe Biden is now so unpopular that he has fallen a bit below even Donald Trump’s dismal showing at this point in his presidency.
Real Clear Politics average of presidential approval polls has Biden at 41% approval and 53% disapproval. Trump’s corresponding 2018 approval number edges Biden at 41.4%, with disapproval at 53.9%.
How did it come to this? Biden started out with much higher approval than Trump
But by the start of Trump’s second year, his numbers began slowly to improve; Biden’s have continued to sink.
“Lower than Trump” is hardly the first year result the White House expected. Biden received the most popular votes of anyone elected to the presidency.
