Joe Biden Less Popular Than Last 4 Presidents Who Failed to Win Second Term:
President Joe Biden's current approval rating is lower than that of the last four presidents who failed to win a second term, according to polling data.
Biden's popularity among voters has been a major talking point in the 2024 campaign. His approval rating percentage has steadily been in the low 40s for most of his presidency. It was at its highest when Biden first took office in January 2021 at 53.1 percent and at its lowest in July 2022 at 38.2 percent, according to poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight.
A recent poll conducted by the American Research Group from December 17-20 found that 37 percent of Americans approve of Biden's handling of his presidency, while 57 percent disapprove. The poll surveyed 1,100 adults living in the continental U.S. and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
However, when looking at an aggregation of the current polls, Biden's approval rating is a bit higher at 39.3 percent.
Looking at how Biden's popularity fares compared to past incumbents who lost their reelection campaigns, he has a lower approval rating than Donald Trump, George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford at the same point in their presidencies. --->READ MORE HERE

Sen. Kennedy says Biden is ‘as popular as herpes’ in Louisiana:
Sen. John Kennedy ripped President Biden for saying the media causes his flop in the polls, when his policies are what make him anathema in his state.
Mr. Kennedy, Louisiana Republican, told Fox News Thursday that members of the media “have tried to help” Mr. Biden.
“But in Louisiana, President Biden is about as popular as herpes. Why is that? Two reasons. Number one, the people of Louisiana are not stupid. Number two, they think the Biden administration is. They think that its stupidity runs from the river to the sea,” he said.
He pointed to Mr. Biden’s policy that “dissolved the southern border” as one example of his unpopularity.
“Our problems at the southern border are man-made,” he said. “And that man’s name is Joe Biden.”
The senator said that without border security, no supplemental appropriations bill will be passed in the Senate. --->READ MORE HERE
