President Joe Biden not only trails his predecessor in polls in key battleground states and nationally, but now he has clocked the lowest approval rating of almost every president for the last 80 years.
As Breitbart recently reported, the latest Real Clear Politics polling data show that as of Nov. 25, Biden’s average approval rating at this point in his presidency was 40.6%.
On the other hand, his average disapproval rating was 55.5%, putting Biden 14.9 points underwater to this moment.
That made his approval rating the lowest among the past three presidents at this stage of their respective presidencies.
It seems unthinkable, given all that’s happened over the past four years, but Trump scored a 43.7% approval rating as of November 25, 2019. This meant Trump was only 8.5 points underwater with poll respondents at the time.
That actually put him slightly ahead of former President Barack Obama, who registered a 43.4% approval score as of Nov. 25, 2011.
Former President George W. Bush was relatively popular within this group. His approval rating as of Nov. 25, 2003, was 51.5%, according to Real Clear Politics.
The news is even worse for Biden from the other polling gurus at FiveThirtyEight.com.
As of this point in their respective presidencies, their data pegged Biden’s average approval rating at just 38.9%, compared to 40.7% for Trump.
But FiveThirtyEight goes deeper than most, which makes Biden’s situation even more dismal.
The pollster tracks job approval ratings back to President Harry Truman’s first term, which occurred in 1945.
The only president more unpopular than Biden as of day 1,037 in his first term was another Democrat, former President Jimmy Carter. His approval rating at that time was 36.6%.
