President Joe Biden’s average job approval rating charted by RealClearPolitics (RCP) dropped below 40 percent for the first time in his presidency.
Biden’s RCP average job approval showed the president at a mere 39.8 percent approval, compared to a 54.4 percent disapproval, as of Wednesday morning. This is the first time Biden’s average job approval rating has gone below 40 percent while he has been in office for over a year.
The RCP average equals a net approval of negative 14.6.
The president’s first year in office was plagued with endless bad poll numbers after dealing with the consequences of poor decision-making. Biden dealt with many issues such as a supply chain crisis, record-high inflation, and the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

In fact, last week, former President Donald Trump’s job approval was slightly higher than Biden’s as of February 3 of their second year in office. That was the first time Trump’s historical average job approval was above Biden.
