A majority of independent voters disapprove of President Joe Biden, a Civiqs survey released this week showed.

Overall, Biden’s approval rating is completely underwater, as 55 percent disapprove and 34 percent approve, giving the president a net approval of -19 percent:

Predictably, most Democrats, 72 percent, approve of Biden’s job performance, compared to 12 percent who disapprove. The vast majority of Republicans, 96 percent, disapprove, but the metrics outside of the traditional partisan split are, perhaps, more interesting.

Sixty-five percent of independent voters, a key demographic, disapprove of Biden’s job performance. Just over one-fifth of independents, 22 percent, approve. That leaves Biden with a net approval of -43 percent among independent voters. 

Further, a majority of independent voters in nearly every single state disapprove of Biden’s job performance with an exception of Vermont, where 47 percent disapprove. However, that still stands as a plurality. 

Biden’s disapproval among independent voters in key swing states is as follows:

Arizona: 65 percent
Florida: 64 percent
Georgia: 60 percent
Michigan: 65 percent
North Carolina: 62 percent
Ohio: 70 percent
Pennsylvania: 62 percent
Wisconsin: 65 percent

Biden’s continually sinking approval ratings comes as rampant inflation continues to plague the country. All the while, Americans continue to wake up to record-breaking gas prices day by day, with the latest increase landing at $4.819 — a five cent increase overnight.
