PBS/Marist Poll Puts Brandon at Lowest Level of Approval Yet


As President Joe Biden heads into the end of the year, he's facing a sour reality: The number of Americans who approve of his performance has hit a new low. Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job he has been doing as president, according to a new PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll. Support among independents alone dropped eight points in a week.

Overall, more than half -- 55 percent -- of Americans disapprove of Biden's performance, including 44 percent who strongly disapprove. His disapproval ratings have jumped 20 points since he took office, reaching a record high this month. The number who strongly disapprove jumped 6 points since a Marist poll conducted just one week earlier.

Everyone hates Brandon:

isapproval of the president stretches across most demographic groups, with his level of disapproval topping 50 percent among white and non-white voters, people living in cities and in rural America, and voters in every age range except those over 74 years old.

Biden still garners strong support among Democrats, with 87 percent approving of his job performance. But even among blue voters, his disapproval rating has jumped 7 points since he took office. Republicans are similarly entrenched: 95 percent disapprove of the job Biden is doing.

But the worst news for Biden is among indepdents, or, as I now call them, "Republicans:"

Perhaps the most alarming drop for the White House and Democrats heading into the midterm election year is Biden's support among independents. Two-thirds of independent voters disapprove of Biden, including half who strongly disapprove. Both numbers are up at least 30 points since he took office. Just 29 percent of independents approve of his job performance.

Brandon's only source of loyal support is Suburban Women, who supported him at 59% in 2020 and still approve of him at 57% now.

Karen is stubborn and dumb and wants another chardonnay.

Update: A subsample of 224 Hispanics shows even worse news for Biden.

Big caveat: the smaller the sample, the bigger the margin of error. A sample size of four hundred and change is usually the smallest poll people will run, and that has an MOE of about 5%.

A sample of 224 would have a larger MOE, around 7%.

That big, big caveat noted, Brandon isn't doing well with Hispanics.

Again, note you can't put any stock in this specific number.

A new national PBS / Marist poll finds Joe Biden’s approval rating is significantly LOWER with Hispanics than it is with whites.

Approve: 33%
Disapprove: 65%
Net: -32

Approve: 40%
Disapprove: 56%
Net: -16

And for those asking…

Hispanic n = 224 (sizable for a sub-sample)

Hispanic MoE = 7%

538 rates Marist with an A. If you look at their 2020 polling in FL, PA, and NC, they certainly skewed Dem. Their AZ poll was correct.

Make of that what you will. pic.twitter.com/3HdeDdh8Jv
