President Biden is facing a crisis of confidence among the American people, as public approval of his handling of the COVID pandemic, the surge of illegal immigrants at the southern border and gun violence continues to decline, according to a new poll.
Even in areas where he’s still getting relatively high approval ratings, like the coronavirus and infrastructure, his numbers have fallen in the past month, an ABC News/Ipsos poll shows.
Biden’s overall approval/disapproval rating is at 45 percent / 49 percent — showing more Americans disapprove of his performance than approve.
Fifty-seven percent of Americans approve of his handling of the pandemic — his highest numbers in the poll — but that’s down seven points from the end of August and a whopping 15 points from March.
Americans also approve of the president’s handling of infrastructure — 55 percent to 44 percent — but disapproval has jumped by nine points since the end of last month.
