Joe Biden has suffered a larger approval rating drop at the start of his term than any president since World War II, according to a new Gallup poll.
Biden’s approval rating dropped from 56% in Q1 to 44.7% in Q3 which represents an 11.3% drop.
This has not been experienced by any president since World War II, Fox News notes.
Biden campaigned on uniting the country, but polling indicates there is a 88% partisan gap in job approval.
This is the highest since Biden took office.
The polling occurred between October 1 through October 19.
Gallup reported, “This 11-point decline is larger than any prior president registered between his first and third quarters, although it is similar to those for the last three Democratic presidents.
Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped ten points, Bill Clinton’s dropped seven points, and Jimmy Carter’s dropped 9 points.
The White House has not yet responded to requests for comment.
More from Fox News:
Biden’s approval rating started to significantly drop over the summer as the nation continues to battle through the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions put in place by elected officials, including Biden who has faced widespread criticism for imposing federal vaccine mandates.
The president’s approval fell even further in September after his chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan that resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. service members and left Americans behind, despite promises from his administration that wouldn’t occur.
Additionally, Democrats in Congress have failed to advance Biden’s infrastructure and spending agenda, further exacerbating his approval rating struggles.
Biden is also severely under water when it comes to how Republicans view him, with only 4% of Republicans polled saying they approve of the job he’s done and 94% disapproving. Conversely, 92% of Democrats approve of the job Biden is doing and 6% disapprove.
