President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have taken a hit, with the latest IBD/TIPP Poll revealing a significant drop. The economic landscape, marked by rising interest rates, escalating gas prices, and the reintroduction of student loan payments, seems to be a major factor.
Here’s a snapshot:
📊 Overall Approval: 36% approve of Biden’s performance, while 54% disapprove. This is a sharp decline from September’s figures.
🔵 Democrat’s View: 73% of Democrats still support Biden, but there’s a slight dip from last month.
🟡 Independents’ Stance: 59% disapprove, and only 26% approve, showing a growing discontent among this group.
🔴 Republican Perspective: A whopping 89% disapprove of Biden, a slight increase from the previous month.
💰 Income-Based Analysis: Those earning more than $75,000 showed a significant drop in approval, from 59% in September to 39% now.
🎓 Educational Insights: College grads are now less supportive, with 44% approval, down from 53% in September. The resumption of federal student loan payments might be influencing this.
📈 Economic Policies: A majority (56%) disapprove of Biden’s economic strategies, a significant increase from last month. Despite job additions and wage growth, inflation seems to be overshadowing these positives.
