His approval among independent voters has also taken a significant dip in the past few months, dropping from 44 percent approval in May to 35 percent approval in October.
The most recent survey, taken October 12-14, 2021, among 508 likely voters, has a margin of error of +/- 4.35 percent.
The consistent dip in Biden’s approval ratings coincide with his announcement of coercive vaccine mandates, as well as his administration’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
This week, the State Department admitted that it was in contact with 363 Americans stranded in Afghanistan — a number far greater than the 100 Secretary of State Antony Blinken insisted on in September.
