WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – The U.S. President Joe Biden’s approval rating dropped to 36% this week, his lowest point since his presidency. This was due to rising inflation in America, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll that was completed Tuesday.

A two-day nationwide poll revealed that 59% disapprove of Biden’s job performance. Biden’s overall approval dropped six percentage points to 42% from last week.

Biden’s approval ratings have fallen below 50% in August. This raises alarms about the possibility that Biden’s Democratic Party could lose control of at most one of Congress chambers during the Nov. 8 Midterm Election.

Biden’s approval rating in his party dropped to 72%, compared with 76% during the week before. This is a clear sign that Democrats are losing enthusiasm. His job is favored by only 10% of Republicans.

Although Biden’s approval rating overall is low, it still exceeds that of Donald Trump who had a 33% approval rating in December 2017.

Biden’s year has been plagued by an increase in U.S. Consumer Prices. Russia’s invasion and occupation of Ukraine have driven fuel prices up, while global supply chains are still being hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Reuters/Ipsos online poll can be accessed in English from anywhere within the United States. A total of 1,005 adult respondents were surveyed, which included 456 Democrats (and 358 Republicans). It is four percentage point credible interval, which is a gauge of precision.
