Biden at 490 Days of First Term: Falls to Most Disliked President in Modern History

The president who Democrats got more votes than any in history now has the lowest approval rating of any modern president at this stage of his presidency (including Trump).

Biden’s latest approval numbers have now gone past the president that the Democrats say (and still say) is the “most hated president in history.”

The numbers come for the left-wing FiveThrtyEight blog, which notes that no president going back to Harry Truman has ever measured as low as the 40.9 percent Biden hit on day 490 of his presidency.

Former Presidents Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Gerald Ford had lower average approval ratings at some stage early in their presidencies, but Biden has caught up, and today’s average was the first for which he was below all presidents since Truman, a potentially troubling trend as Democrats ready for the midterm elections.

FiveThirtyEight is not the only polling to find Biden slipping lower every day. A recet Reuters Ipsos poll found Biden at a low 36 percent last week.

Only 10% of Republicans and 28% of independents approve of President Biden, while 72% of Democrats still do. However, among Democrats Biden has seen a 10 point drop from two weeks ago when 82% approved of him, a driving factor for his lower overall approval rating,” the Ipsos analysis said.

According to FiveThirtyEight, the presidents since Truman rate:

  • Joe Biden 40.9%
  • Donald Trump 42.7%
  • Barack Obama 48%
  • George W. Bush 72%
  • Bill Clinton 50.9%
  • George H.W. Bush 65%
  • Ronald Reagan 45%
  • Jimmy Carter 43.1%
  • Gerald Ford 44.2%
  • Richard Nixon 57.1%
  • Lyndon B. Johnson 68.7%
  • John F. Kennedy 74%
  • Dwight Eisenhower 61.3%
  • Harry S. Truman 43.1%
