A new poll reveals President Biden’s lowest approval rating yet, as Congress remains at an impasse at the sweeping spend plans that will define his presidency and the threat of debt default loom.   

Just 38% approve of Biden’s job as president, and 53% disapprove, according to a poll from Quinnipiac University. Three weeks ago, the same poll found that 42% approved and 50% disapproved.  

Thirty-two percent of Independents approve of Biden while 60% disapprove. Four percent of Republicans approve, 94% disapprove. Still, 80% of Democrats approve of the president’s job overall and 10% disapprove.

Biden received his lowest marks on immigration, where only 25% approve and 67% disapprove, and also received low marks on his ‘first love,’ foreign policy, where only 34% approved and 58% disapproved. 

Of his job as commander-in-chief, 37% approved, 58% disapproved, according to the poll.  

Roughly three in 10 Americans (28%) agreed with Biden’s decision to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan, while 50% think the US should have withdrawn some troops but not all troops and 15% think the US should not have withdrawn any troops from Afghanistan.

Quinnipiac poll from October 1-4

Quinnipiac poll from October 1-4 

Biden scored his highest marks on his Covid-19 response, where 48% approve and 50% disapprove. 

On the economy and taxes, Biden scored 39% and 37% approval respectively.

Only 5% of Americans say they are very satisfied with the way things are going today, while 23 percent say they are somewhat satisfied. 

The university polled 1,326 US adults from October 1-4. 

Public opinion soured for the president after his frenzied withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 Americans dead in the aftermath. Biden also caught heat for skyrocketing numbers of migrants at the southern border that have led to overcrowded facilities. 

The Department of Homeland Security is preparing for as many as 400,000 to arrive at the southern border, nearly double the 21-year high seen in July.

Meanwhile, Democrats are scrambling for a way to raise the nation’s debt limit without help from Republicans , after they’ve had to push aside Biden’s $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation plan. 

Progressives will not allow the House to pass another $1.1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill until the Senate passes the $3.5T plan, but moderate Democrats Joe Manchin, W. Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, Ariz., have said they will not support a number that high. 

The president, knowing the fate of the two spending bills will come to define his presidency,  is trying to negotiate a path between the two factions of his party and has conceded the overall price tag will have to come down.

The poll also reflects a notable decline in public opinion of the president’s character.  Only 49% now believe the president cares about average Americans, when in April that number was 58%.
