Biden is the Least Popular President in 70 Years — Below Even Nixon and Carter, Scathing Poll Finds; Gallup Poll: Biden Worst President in Polling History

Biden is the least popular president in 70 years — below even Nixon and Carter, scathing poll finds:
Joe Biden is the least popular commander in chief at this point of his presidency in the last 70 years, below even Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter, according to a blistering new poll — imperiling his chances of re-election.
Biden, 81, notched a dismal 38.7% job approval rating for the first quarter of 2024, the venerable Gallup Poll found in a survey released Friday, three points lower than that of the one-term George H.W. Bush at the same point in his presidency.
“With about six months remaining before Election Day, Biden stands in a weaker position than any prior incumbent,” the pollsters concluded.
In contrast, former President Donald Trump, who is vying with Biden for a second White House term, had a 46.8% approval rating at this point in his presidency.
Even Nixon and Carter had higher ratings than Biden, with 53.7% and 47.7%, respectively, and Eisenhower had the highest rating at 73.2%, according to the poll.
The results of Gallup’s presidential approval polls, which the organization has compiled since the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower began in 1952, have been strongly predictive of re-election success.
Historically, every incumbent in the past seven decades with an approval rating above 50% has won a second term. Only Barack Obama bucked the trend: his 2012 victory came despite a middling 46% approval six months ahead of that year’s general election.
No first-term president in Gallup’s history has returned to the White House with approval numbers as low as Biden’s — whose results this quarter ranked among the worst of the post-World War II era, in the bottom 12% of all presidential quarters going back to 1945. --->READ MORE HERE
Gallup Poll: Biden Worst President in Polling History:
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump calls President Joe Biden the "worst president in history," and now there is new polling data to back that up.
Biden rates as the least popular president in the 70-year history of the data, according to latest Gallup Poll results released this weekend, trumping the previously lowest-rated presidencies of Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, and Richard Nixon.
"With about six months remaining before Election Day, Biden stands in a weaker position than any prior incumbent, and thus faces a taller task than they did in getting reelected," Gallup's Jeffrey Jones wrote in his Bottom Line analysis.
The poll reviewed the historical 13th quarter approval ratings (first quarter of the first four-year term) of each presidency since 1956, finding Biden's first term average approval rating of 38.7% to be the lowest of all the first terms.
"From a broader historical perspective, Biden's most recent quarterly average ranks 277th out of 314 presidential quarters in Gallup records dating to 1945," Jones added. "That puts it in the bottom 12% of all presidential quarters."
