The approval rating for US President Joe Biden among Democrats is at historic lows. In fact, according to what emerges from a poll conducted by Gallup, Biden has lost eleven points in a month with the 2024 US presidential elections one year away. Which means that 75 percent of Democratic respondents approve of the job that Biden is doing as president . Among independents, only 35 percent said they appreciated the American president’s work. The consensus of the Republicans remained unchanged, confirming itself at 5 percent.
The Gallup poll, released two weeks after Hamas’ attack on Israel, reveals that Biden has also seen his overall approval rating drop to 37%.
