Besides being underwater in 48 states, Biden’s 30% approval rating as of Saturday marks his worst approval rating since becoming president. On Monday, record approval was met by its highest disapproval at 58%.

Biden has been plagued by poor job endorsement numbers and continued failures during his tenure.

His job approval was 31% on Friday, down from 32% and 33% in June and 34% in May. Similarly, nearly a month ago, the June 8 Quinnipiac poll also found Biden’s jobs approval rating at 33%.

The president is also underwater with independent vouching, which is an increasingly influential voting bloc, especially in recent years. Only 18% of independent respondents say they approve of Biden, while 68% disapprove, with 13% having no opinion.

Biden’s low number of job endorsements has been exacerbated by numerous tantrums during his roughly 18 months in office.

During his presidency, the country experienced a supply chain crisis, record inflation, a shortage of infant formula and the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Moreover, its flagship legislative proposal, the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act (BBB), has been dead in the water for some time. The country also recently saw a string of record high gas prices last month, with the average gas price hitting over $5.00 a gallon.

The CIVIQS rolling job approval average recorded 220,951 responses between January 20 and July 3. The CIVIQS tracking model captures changes in attitudes of diverse groups over time in all 50 states and Washington, DC. These changes can happen quickly or over time.
