Donald Trump is currently beating Joe Biden — at least in terms of popularity among eligible U.S. voters.
President Joe Biden’s favorability rating has fallen to 46%, while Trump’s rating now stands two points higher at 48%, according to a new Harvard/Harris poll.
In contrast to Biden, Barack Obama’s approval ratings at the same point in his term stood at 61%.
The news comes as president Biden’s approval rating in a Gallup poll hit a record low of 43%. For the first time, the majority of Americans–53%–disapprove of Joe Biden.
In fact, Biden’s ratings dropped immediately following the chaos in Kabul, including the terror attack that claimed the lives of 13 U.S. servicemen. And, in recent days, his numbers have grown even more challenging as a result of the border crisis.
Many voters have even begun making their disdain for Joe Biden known publically, as “F* Joe Biden” chants erupt across the country.
Faltering approval ratings could hurt the president’s sweeping plans on taxes, welfare and the “green” economy. Democrats may aim to distance themselves from Biden ahead of the 2022 midterms, making his policy initiatives increasingly difficult.
