Joe Biden Hits Yet Another Record Low Approval Rating
It’s official. Joe Biden has reached another record in his unpopularity. On Wednesday, February 9, 2022, the Democrat’s approval rating dropped into the 30s. Four new polls found him at 41, 40,41 or 38. The Real Clear Politics (RCP) average plummeted to 39.8 (with his disapproval up to 54.4).
By way of comparison, George W. Bush didn’t drop into the 30s until well into his second term, March 2, 2006. How will journalists react to this terrible news?
For these new polls, Ecomoist/YouGov, Rasmussen, Politico/Morning Consult and IBD/TIPP, the network morning and evening newscasts in the last week simply ignored them. The worst numbers came from IBD, finding Biden at just 38 percent. Released two days ago, ABC, CBS and NBC ignored it.
Here’s the RCP average that pushed Biden into the 30s.
Biden’s polling average of 39.8 is now two full points below Donald Trump four years ago. On February 9, 2018, the Republican averaged an approval of 41.8 and a disapproval of 53.8.
It’s not as though the network newscasts are pretending Biden is popular, but they certainly are trying to avoid the crushingly bad numbers. On last Friday’s Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt cheered better-than-expected jobs numbers: “President Biden taking a victory lap, as new jobs report blows past expectations despite Omicron.” On ABC’s World News Tonight, anchor David Muir touted, “President Biden welcoming the news saying, quote, ‘America is back to work.’”
Yet, on Wednesday, with the glut of new, bad polling, ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today didn’t mention Biden’s name once, let alone the new numbers.
Last week, Biden became officially less popular than Trump, dropping below him in the RCP average from this time in their respective presidencies.
