Washington, March 8 – According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, U.S. President Joe Biden’s public approval rating rose to 42%, its highest level since June, as inflation has eased in the United States and job growth has remained strong.
Since Biden took office in 2021, his approval ratings had been declining until May-July of last year when they dipped to 36%. However, since then his approval has started to rise steadily.
Interestingly, Rasmussen and Morning Consult have Biden sitting at 48 and 46 percent, respectively.
Per FiveThirtyEight.com, Biden’s mean approval rating among top pollsters is 43.4 percent. Former President Trump’s was 41.8 percent at this time in his presidency while Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush registered mean tallies of 48 and 55 percent, respectively.
If you’re a Democrat, you’d like to see Biden hit at least 48/49 percent by election time.
