Biden Approval Rating in AP Poll Nears Low Point
Summary from the AllSides News Team
President Joe Biden's approval rating is at 38%, according to the latest Associated Press-NORC poll.
The Details: Biden's rating in the poll fell from 45% in February. His lowest rating in the poll was 36% last summer. According to the poll, 76% of Democrats approve of the job Biden is doing, compared to just 4% of Republicans.
For Context: The updated rating comes amid fallout from bank failures in the U.S. and Switzerland, continued high inflation, and rising tensions with Russia and China. While AP's poll suggests Biden's approval rating is nearing a low point, others say differently. FiveThirtyEight's (Center bias) approval rating tracker says 43% of people approve of Biden currently; that number has hovered between 42% and 45% since last September. The Reuters (Center bias) approval tracker says Biden's rating rose from 37% in November to 42% this month.
How the Media Covered It: Sources across the spectrum highlighted the AP poll prominently, and framed it in the context of recent bank failures and persistent inflation. Washington Examiner said the number "veers dangerously close" to a low point for Biden. AP highlighted poll respondents who expressed "mixed feelings about Biden."
