President Joe Biden’s approval rating is under water, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national poll carried out Sept. 15-16.
According to the poll, while 50% of U.S. adults disapprove of the president’s performance in office, only 44% approve, marking his lowest approval so far. It appears that 46% had been the lowest his approval numbers had been in prior Reuters/Ipsos polls.
“The Reuters/Ipsos poll is conducted online in English throughout the United States. The latest poll gathered responses from 1,005 adults in total including 442 Democrats and 360 Republicans. It has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 4 percentage points,” according to Reuters.
