The New York Times has not updated its official presidential approval rating page since May, Fox News reported Wednesday.
The Media Research Center first drew attention to the publication’s shortcoming last week, noting that the “live” page titled “President Biden’s Approval Rating and the Latest Poll Numbers: Updates” has not been refreshed since May 10, 2021.
The stale story still has an Associated Press/NORC poll showing Biden’s approval rating at 63 percent — though his most recent numbers are not nearly as charitable, to say the least.
Following Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan, compounded with rising crime, surrender to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, inflation, and the ongoing border crisis, RealClearPolitics has the president at an average 45.3 percent approval, “a nearly 18-point drop from the last poll the Times last highlighted.”
“The president saw his disapproval surpassing his approval numbers average for the first time on August 20,” according to the report.
