Less than nine full months into his term, Joe Biden is in trouble…big trouble if one goes by the polls, and the trend is heading downhill as critics repeatedly say he is “under water.”
As described by Fox News, Biden’s “standing among Americans keeps sinking.” The remark was in a report about a new Quinnipiac University survey conducted in September showing the president with an approval rating of 38 percent, while the disapproval rating is at 53 percent.
According to a Quinnipiac news release, it is the lowest score he has received on his job performance since taking office.
But that might not be entirely accurate, because of the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking poll, which has been trending against Biden for weeks. Wednesday’s poll found the Delaware Democrat with a 43 percent approval rating among likely voters against a 56 percent disapproval rating, including 47 percent who strongly disapprove of his job performance. Only 22 percent strongly approve, leaving the president with a Presidential Approval Index rating of -25.
This isn’t just a survey of gun owners. Indeed, the Quinnipiac survey results don’t mention guns at all, so the findings cannot be dismissed on such a toxic issue.

A Quinnipiac poll released last month showed Biden with a 50-42 percent negative job approval rating. The university noted the partisan breakdown at 94-4 percent (Republicans), 60-32 percent (Independents) and 80-10 percent (Democrats).
Things can only get worse for Biden following the release of new economic data showing inflation at its highest rate in 13 years, according to Fox News. Social media reportedly erupted at the disclosure, and people are “pinning the blame squarely on the Biden White House.”
