In December 2021, the Biden administration’s disapproval rating hit a record high, per a report by Harry Wilmerding of the Daily Caller.

According to a poll released by CNBC/Change, voters are frustrated with how the President has managed the economy and his leadership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

56% of poll respondents indicated they disapprove of Biden’s performance as president, which is Biden’s worst rating so far into his presidency.

Previous polls showed Biden’s disapproval rating standing around 54% in September 2021 and 49% in April 2021.

Biden’s approval rating is at 44%, which represents a consistent decline from September’s 46% and April 2021’s 51%, per the CNBC/Change data.

According to the poll results, voters of all demographic backgrounds prioritize the economy above other issues.

Of the 1,895 individuals who responded to the poll’s question, 60% indicated that they disapproved of the Biden administration’s handling of the U.S. economy.

These figures marked a six-point decrease from the results highlighted in September 2021.

Furthermore, about 72% of respondents disapprove of how the Biden administration is handling the price of everyday goods.

In addition, 66% disapproved of the Biden administration’s attempts to reduce the financial burden that inflation has imposed on American households.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) reached its highest level in roughly four decades in November 2021.

In that same month, the U.S. economy added only 210,000 jobs, one of the lowest jobs figures under the Biden administration’s watch.

Regarding COVID-19, 55% of respondents disapproved of the way the Biden administration has handled the pandemic.
