(AP) — President Joe Biden’s popularity has slumped — with half of Americans now approving and half disapproving of his leadership. That’s according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
Support for the president who pledged to bring the country together and restore competence in government has declined after a slew of challenges in recent weeks at home and abroad.
Fifty percent now say they approve of Biden, while 49% disapprove. Fifty-four percent approved in August, and 59% did in July. Since July, Biden’s approval rating has dipped slightly among Democrats and among independents who don’t lean toward either party.
