When it comes to the economy, President Joe Biden’s approval rating is just 34 percent, a new poll finds.

The rating comes as inflation remains elevated, driving up the costs of many kinds of goods and services for Americans, particularly food and energy costs. Biden has touted unemployment rates, which have remained relatively low.

Gallup released the polling data last week showing that Biden’s overall approval rating sits at 42 percent, much lower than the 57 percent approval rating he held upon taking office.

Biden’s work on the pandemic is seen in a better light, with a 53 percent approval rating.

“Biden’s approval ratings for his handling of the seven issues are politically polarized, much like his overall job rating,” Gallup said. “Solid majorities of Democrats approve of the job Biden is doing overall and on all of the issues measured, ranging from 62 percent on immigration to 85 percent on the coronavirus.”

Biden also received poor marks on his relationship with China and immigration, with 32 percent and 33 percent approval ratings, respectively.

Gallup argues Biden’s approval rating figures are too low for Biden to win re-election.

“Although Biden has not formally announced that he will seek reelection, he is expected to do so and would likely need higher approval ratings to win another term,” Gallup said.
