Lowest presidential endorsement for Joe Biden: Reuters poll
President Joe Biden’s approval continued to falter on Friday as he received the lowest numbers from a Reuters/Ipsos poll amid growing criticism focused on his response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and the failed withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The voteThe survey, which was conducted nationally this week and collected more responses from Democrats than Republicans, revealed that only 44 percent of adults in the United States approve of Biden’s performance in office.
The poll indicated that the president’s popularity has been slowly declining since mid-August when he failed to withdraw from Afghanistan, which led to the killing of 13 US soldiers and the collapse of the Afghan government.
Biden’s response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic has also fallen below 50 percent for the first time in his presidency. Only about 48 percent approved of Biden’s policies on the Chinese coronavirus, compared to 46 percent who disapproved of the policies.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online between September 15-16 through the United States.
There were 1,005 adults questioned that sided with Democrats, with 442 Democrats and 360 Republicans. The poll’s error rate was four percentage points.
