As President Biden prepares to deliver his first State of the Union address Tuesday night, a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows that a combination of Republican rancor and Democratic disappointment has left his approval rating languishing near an all-time low after a tumultuous first year in office.⁠

The survey of 1,532 U.S. adults, which was conducted online from Feb. 24 to 27, found that just 41 percent of them now approve of how Biden is handling his job — a number that has hovered between 38 and 42 percent since December — while a majority (53 percent) disapprove.⁠

More than 6 in 10 Americans, meanwhile, say Biden has not kept most of his promises.⁠

Biden’s approval rating peaked last April at 54 percent, amid falling COVID-19 numbers and rising economic growth. But since then it has steadily deteriorated, as two new coronavirus variants sapped early pandemic optimism; a messy military exit from Afghanistan raised questions about Biden’s leadership; an ambitious Democratic agenda stalled in Congress; and climbing inflation hit Americans in the pocketbook.⁠

Today, less than 40 percent of the public approves of Biden’s handling of nearly every major issue: race (39 percent); schools (38 percent); climate change (38 percent); the economy (36 percent); foreign policy (36 percent); crime (33 percent); and immigration (33 percent). The only issue on which the president clears 40 percent is COVID-19 — and even there, more Americans disapprove (47 percent) than approve (44 percent).⁠

Americans were split last April, after Biden’s first 100 days in office, about whether the president had kept “all” or “most” of his promises (42 percent) or just “some” or “none” (40 percent). Now far fewer say he has kept all or most of his promises (21 percent); far more say he has kept some or none (61 percent).⁠

  1. Of course he didn’t. The GOP has got into the way by blocking most of his legislative agenda.

  2. It is the damn GOP’s fault, they have blocked everything he wanted to do! His number’s are still better than Trump’s!

  3. Does the poll tell Americans that at every turn the gop party stomp everything he tries to do for Americans

  4. All of these media outlets are republican based so naturally the numbers will be skewed and propaganda pushing false narratives will be at a max

  5. So the better alternative, according to many, is someone who spray tans himself orange?🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  6. Kinda difficult to keep most of those promises when your OWN party is standing in the way and would rather hold onto a jim crow era rule instead of remove it 😒

  7. Firefighter – in – Chief…he’s way better than the laizze faire, orange alternative.

  8. EVERY SAINT HAS A PAST, EVERY SINNER HAS A FUTURE! 🔥🔥🔥 says #EMMAWATSON ⚡ watch vdo in my feed ❤️❤️
