Biden’s approval rating surges as Trump plummets to 7-year low

President Joe Biden’s job approval rating is rising, while former President Donald Trump’s rating has hit its lowest level since 2015, a new poll says.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found more registered voters still disapproved of Biden than supported, with 43 percent agreeing and 49 percent disapproving. However, the rating represented a clear upward trend for the current president, who had 36 percent approval and 55 percent disapproval in an edition of the same poll released Nov. 22.

Trump, who announced last month that he was running for president for the third time, had a significantly lower approval rating. Just 31 percent of registered voters viewed the former president positively, while 59 percent disapproved – his worst rating since July 2015.

Support for Trump declined, especially among Republican and independent voters. Although 70 percent of GOP voters had a positive opinion of Trump, 20 percent viewed him negatively in his worst Quinnipiac performance since March 2016. Independents gave Trump his worst rating since the poll began in May 2015, with 25 percent agreeing and 62 percent disagreeing.

“Is it a wave of doubt or a rising tidal wave of rejection?” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said in a statement. “The number of post-election announcements by former President Trump is headed in the wrong direction. You’d have to go back at least six years to find less support for him from Republican, Independent, and American voters overall.”

The prospect of Trump becoming the next GOP presidential nominee has recently been in doubt as some Republicans sought to distance themselves from the former president amid speculation of a possible challenge from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Trump’s campaign in early 2024 was also plagued by a number of the former president’s controversial moments, including his call for the “cancellation” of the Constitution and his decision to have dinner with white nationalist Nick Fuentes and embattled rapper Kanye West, who recently killed the Nazi leader Adolf praised Hitler.

The former president, who announced a “major announcement” for Thursday, is trailing DeSantis in some recent Republican primaries, though the governor has not announced his candidacy.

Meanwhile, multiple polls have shown that Biden’s approval ratings, while still negative, are rising after a better-than-expected performance for Democrats in this year’s midterms. A CNN poll released last week showed the president was rated 46 percent in favor and 54 percent against, up from a 41 percent to 59 percent split in October.

However, Wednesday’s Quinnipiac poll found that a majority of Americans would prefer to avoid a Biden-Trump rematch in 2024. A 70 percent majority of voters said they did not want Trump to be the GOP nominee, while 64 percent said they did not want Biden to be the Democratic nominee.

The Quinnipiac poll results are based on a national poll of 1,456 registered voters December 8-12. The survey has an error rate of 2.6 percent.
