Just six months into their administration, both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s approval ratings are plummeting.
Biden took the hardest fall, according to a Monmouth University poll released this week, consistently losing points with the public each month he’s been in office. While the Democrat entered his tenure at the White House with a net approval rating of +24, his popularity with Americans quickly slipped to just +4 as inflation rises and illegal border crossings skyrocket.
A recent Rasmussen Reports poll also indicated that at least 52 percent of likely voters disapproved of Biden’s track record as president. And while 26 percent of those same voters said they “strongly approve” of the progressive direction the president has chosen to take during his time in office, 42 percent say they strongly disapprove of the Biden presidency.
Harris also took a hit in the polls over the last six months after she failed to adequately respond to Biden’s border crisis despite her position as border lead. In a Morning Consult-Politico poll released last week, 47 percent of registered voters attested that they had an unfavorable view of Harris while approximately 45 percent claimed they had an unfavorable view of Biden.
An Economist-YouGov poll conducted just a week later showed Harris’s unfavorability rating was up to 48 percent.
