Americans are not happy with Joe Biden.
His approval rating hit its lowest of his “presidency” according to a new left-leaning NBC News poll.
Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt said, “Joe Biden is at a uniquely low point in his presidency.”
Joe Biden’s plummeting poll numbers left NBC News hosts stunned as they covered a recent NBC poll revealing Biden’s approval rating at a mere 40% – marking the lowest rating Joe Biden “ever measured in our poll”.
NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Kristen Welker was surprised at Biden’s dismal job approval rating while referencing the latest national NBC News poll.
“According to the poll, 40% of registered voters approve of Biden’s job performance, while 57% disapprove, representing Biden’s all-time low in approval (and all-time high in disapproval) in the poll since becoming president.” NBC News reported.
“And only 34% of all voters approve of Biden’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war, versus 56% who say they disapprove.” NBC reported.
“By party, only half of Democratic voters (51%) say they approve of Biden’s handling of the war, compared with majorities of independents (59%) and Republicans (69%) who say they disapprove.” the outlet said.
“These numbers surprised our own pollsters!” Welker said.

From NBC News:
President Joe Biden’s approval rating has declined to the lowest level of his presidency — 40% — as strong majorities of all voters disapprove of his handling of foreign policy and the Israel-Hamas war, according to the latest national NBC News poll.
What’s more, the poll finds Biden behind former President Donald Trump for the first time in a hypothetical general-election matchup, although the deficit is well within the poll’s margin of error for a contest that’s still more than 11 months away.
The erosion for Biden is most pronounced among Democrats, a majority of whom believe Israel has gone too far in its military action in Gaza, and among voters ages 18 to 34, with a whopping 70% of them disapproving of Biden’s handling of the war.
“Joe Biden is at a uniquely low point in his presidency, and a significant part of this, especially within the Biden coalition, is due to how Americans are viewing his foreign policy actions,” said Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies.
According to the poll, 40% of registered voters approve of Biden’s job performance, while 57% disapprove, representing Biden’s all-time low in approval (and all-time high in disapproval) in the poll since becoming president.
