A new poll conducted by Insider Advantage for the Center for American Greatness found that only 40 percent of Americans approve of Joe Biden’s job performance, and 59 percent disapprove.
The survey of 850 likely voters was conducted January 21-23 and has a margin of error of 3.3 percent.
Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll on Monday also showed that 40 percent of Likely U.S. Voters approve of Biden’s job performance, with 59 percent disapproving.
In two other polls this month, Biden’s approval rating has fallen into the thirties.
Earlier this month a Quinnipiac University survey found that only 33 percent of voters approved of Biden’s job performance.
And the Trafalgar Group survey last week gave him a 38.7 percent approval rating.
The Insider Advantage poll in December gave Biden a 41 percent approval rating.
Given the sheer number of self-inflicted disasters and failures of his first year in office, it is amazing that Biden’s approval is as high as the 35-40 percent range. His first year was marked by his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, the worsening COVID pandemic that he promised to end, inflation, high gas prices, the border crisis, his executive overreach, his increasingly authoritarian behavior, intentionally divisive policies, and his declining mental state. Now, increased global instability and the threat of a full blown recession can be added to the list.
When asked if the election were held today, which party would they prefer to have control of Congress, likely voters said Republicans over Democrats 49 percent to 42 percent.
The poll also probed likely voters on their opinion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The largest number of respondents—38 percent—said “the FBI has always been an objective law enforcement agency but in recent years, has appeared to become more politically motivated in its actions.”
Another 22 percent said “it was never an objective law enforcement agency and has always been politically motivated.”
Only 18 percent of respondents had a good opinion of the FBI, saying “it has always been an objective law enforcement and remains so today.”
The rest—22 percent—said they either had no opinion or were undecided.
The answers to a question regarding peoples’ attitudes toward race suggest that Critical Race Theory has become deeply unpopular in America.
Only 6 percent of likely voters said they believe that “African Americans and other non-white persons of color should be given preferential treatment with regard to access to education, jobs, healthcare, and government services.”
An overwhelming 91 percent said “all Americans should be treated equally regardless of their race with regard to education, jobs, healthcare, and government services.”
