Majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of immigration, economy

In a recent Gallup poll, a majority of Americans disapprove the way President Biden has handled immigration, the economy, and relations with China or Russia while he is campaigning for re-election to the White House.

Biden’s job approval rating was 42 percent. 53 percent were disapproving, and 5 percent had no opinion.

A little more than a third of respondents approve of his work on immigration and China relations, with 31 and 32 percent respectively.

Only 37 percent of respondents approve his handling of the economy and his relations with Russia.


The economy rating of the president has increased by five points in the last few months as the country is recovering from the stress caused by the debt ceiling. However, it remains lower than the 54 percent it was at the beginning of his tenure.

The Americans are more likely to approve of his handling the Ukraine situation, race relations, and education than his overall score, at 47,46, and 44 percent respectively.

Biden’s approval rating has risen five points from a low of 37% in April. However, it is still lower than the 57% he had at the beginning of his first term in office.

Just 3 percent of Republicans agree with this statement, which highlights the stark partisan divide. 39 percent of independents are satisfied with his performance as president.

Gallup’s survey of 1,014 U.S. adult respondents was conducted between August 2 and 23. The margin of error is plus or minus four percentage points.
