President Joe Biden’s approval rating is underwater on every key issue listed in the latest The Economist/YouGov survey.
The survey, taken September 17-20, 2022, among 1,500 U.S. adult citizens, found Biden’s overall approval underwater by seven percent, as a majority, 51 percent, find him unfavorable, compared to 44 percent who view him favorably. The gap grows even more when respondents were asked if they approve or disapprove of the way Biden is handling his job as president — 51 percent disapproving and 42 percent approving.
It does not end there, however. The survey also asked respondents to rate the president on a variety of issues, but on every single issue listed in the poll, Biden’s approval rating is completely underwater. For instance, he has a net negative approval on jobs and the economy, as 41 percent approve, compared to 48 percent who disapprove.
His net approval on immigration is even worse. He is underwater by 20 percentage points, as 53 percent disapprove, and 33 percent approve.
This trend continues on every other issue listed.
