Joe Biden’s approval numbers are historically low compared to other presidents, including former President Donald Trump, according to FiveThirtyEight.
Biden’s term in office has been marked by a series of self-inflicted disasters and failures, including his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, the ongoing COVID pandemic that he promised to end, out of control inflation, high gas prices, the border crisis, executive overreach, his increasingly authoritarian behavior, intentionally divisive policies, his declining mental state, and now the looming threat of a recession.
