According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll, Biden’s biggest gains are from his own party. 78% of Democrats said they approved president’s performance – a 9 point gain from a month ago, when he was at 69%. Meanwhile, his approval rating from GOP is 12%, which is similar to previous polling.
The poll, which gathered responses over two days from a total of 1,050 adults, including 445 Democrats and 357 Republicans, revealed a historically low support polling for a US president.
Joe Biden’s approval rating dropped below 50% last year and hit a record-low for his presidency, in May, as it was at 36%. For many Americans, the Joe Biden presidency has been marked by issues including inflation and the economic aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Several events, including those closely related to the legislative field, could be contributing to the rise in Biden´s approval ratings, according to specialized media.
On Sunday, for example, Senate passed a bill promoted by Democrats to crack down on climate change, cut drug prices and to increase some corporate taxes.
On the other hand, domestic economy made 528,000 jobs available in July, and jobless rate scaled down to 3.5%.
All these factors, according to experts, could influence on the Nov. 8 midterm election results.
