Biden and his team stated that messaging was the issue, and they would have Joe Biden talk to more people. Biden had allegedly complained that his people were undercutting him by trying to walk back when he gaffed or said something that wasn’t true; he didn’t want them to do that anymore.
What has this resulted in for them?
Real Clear Politics reports that he has already recorded his lowest average number in polls at 38% approval, just a week before.
Biden now has his lowest ever polling number. Just 30 percent of his poll numbers were approved and 57 per cent disapproval in the Civiqs survey.

Not only hasn’t Roe V. Wade angst helped to turn his numbers up — his numbers have gotten even worse since the case was overturned.

Biden Job Approval
Get 30% approval

What’s hurting him badly is that he’s at 21 percent approval with white people, as well as with people between the ages of 18-34. Biden’s approval rating is 19%, while disapproval ratings are 67 percent. Yikes. You can see how dispopular he has become in Pennsylvania and Georgia. These are two states that will likely have difficult Senate races. That’s going to hurt the Democrats badly. But he’s underwater in every state, except Hawaii and Vermont. The only thing that is stopping him from dropping into the 20s is that he’s at 38 percent with the 65+ segment. However, all numbers continue to fall so we can expect this number to also drop.
Civiqs has shown that Biden ranks lower in this poll now than President Donald Trump. Biden’s current level is lower than Trump’s on the day that he resigned, even though Trump has been attacked by the media over the Jan.6 riot. Trump’s 40 percent was then. Biden now has ten percent less than this.
It’s not just the Civiqs poll. Biden also has his lowest Rasmussen Poll number with only 37 percent approval and 61 percent disapproval. Again, he is now lower than Trump’s lowest number (38 percent approval). That’s gotta sting for Biden, who reportedly has been upset that he’s now coming in lower than Trump. And Trump’s numbers were influenced by very negative media despite having very successful policies.
Both polls show that Joe Biden is also very concerned about the Democratic approval numbers. In the Rasmussen poll, it had been in the low 70s, now it’s just 65 percent–another record low. In the Civiqs poll, it’s 63 percent, also his lowest point. That’s a 28-point drop from what he started with when he came in on his first day, with 91 percent approval from Democrats. An 80-year-old is considered healthy. Living in the 60s can be dangerous.
No wonder Democrats running for office such as Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) and Ohio gubernatorial candidate Nan Whaley are having “scheduling conflicts.” Appearing with Biden is like jumping in a pool with an anchor around your neck, and no candidate wants to do that right now in a tough race.
