President Biden has been under heavy fire recently.

His presidency started off to a shaky start, and it has been evolving into a full-blown rollercoaster ride ever since. From optical tricks to frame him as a senile old man to the progressive messages coming out of the White House, let's look at why Biden's approval ratings are facing the all-time lows.

In perspective

The only person more unpopular than Joe Biden is still Donald Trump in recent history. But Biden is more popular only by a thin thread. Historically, only a few presidents dipped into this level of unpopularity. Presidents like Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan, and Gerald Ford plummeted to average approval ratings below the line of 40%.

These presidents are among the handful of American presidents who suffered higher disapproval than approval ratings during their time in office.

What are approval ratings?

The presidential approval rating signals the American people's general state of support for their current president. The percentage number we're using in this article is the average of hundreds of polls conducted by posters and polling agencies.

These include pollsters like Trafalgar Group, Ipsos, Rasmussen Reports/Pulse Opinion Research, Yougov, etc. For the entire list, please visit Project Five Thirty Eight.

Can Biden's approval ratings go any lower?

President Biden is (enjoying) a 42.3% approval rating, with a disapproval rating climbing up to 51.9%.

More people disapprove of the president's actions than ever before. The inflation rate, monetary tightening, supply chain issues, and frequent political gaffes create roadblocks to Biden's popularity.

The polls also single the state of the Democratic party and general support among their constituents. With the midterm elections around the corner, these numbers signal potential trouble for Democrats.
