Biden’s approval rating dips ahead of U.S. midterms
November 8, 2022 - Joe Biden’s public approval rating is near the lowest of his presidency, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, as his Democratic party braces for losses at the U.S. midterm elections.
Biden's unpopularity is helping drive the view that Republicans will win control of the U.S. House of Representatives and possibly the U.S. Senate as well on Tuesday, according to Reuters.
Taking office in January 2021 in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Biden’s term has been marked by the economic scars of the global health crisis, including soaring inflation. This year, his approval rating drifted as low as 36% in May and June. Reuters said.
