Joe Biden’s disapproval rating is still going up, in fact it just hit a new high.
Biden’s handling of the economy is one of the main factors driving voter disapproval and unfortunately for Biden things are probably going to get worse.
There are no indications that inflation is going to stop rising in 2022.
Biden disapproval hits new high as voters give him bad grades on economy, new CNBC/Change poll says
President Joe Biden’s disapproval rating hit a new high in December as more voters signaled their unhappiness with his administration’s supervision of the economy and the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fifty-six percent of voters now say they disapprove of the job Biden is doing, the worst such reading of his presidency as he approaches the end of his first year in office, according to new CNBC/Change Research poll. Prior polls in the series showed Biden’s disapproval rating at 54% in early September and 49% in April.
Biden’s approval rating is now at 44%, down from 46% in September and 51% in April.
The latest sign of trouble for Biden comes as his administration looks to tackle a wide range of economic and political problems ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, which will decide the balance of power in Congress.
The White House is scrambling to quell fears about price acceleration and inflation, resurrect the president’s Build Back Better climate-and-family legislation, and rejuvenate the country’s public health response as the omicron variant drives a new spike in Covid cases.
The numbers are pretty brutal.
Devastating numbers for Biden per a new CNBC poll:
– 72% disapprove of his handling "of the price of everyday goods" (inflation)
-60% disapproval on the economy
-55% disapproval on COVID (he was once in the 60s in *approval* in the same poll)https://t.co/4urmeo0Sk4

This is going to hurt Democrats in the November midterms too.
