President Joe Biden’s Approval Rating Drops 10 Percentage Points From Last Spring According To The Latest Umass Poll

A new UMass Poll shows President Joe Biden’s approval rating declining as he approaches a year in office, with 53% of respondents disapproving of his performance and 41% approving. This is a drop from the 51% approval in a UMass Poll taken in April 2021, two months into his term. “The honeymoon is officially over – as the nation inches closer to marking a year of the Biden presidency, a minority of voters approve of the job that Joe Biden has done as president,” says Tatishe Nteta, Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the poll.
