The Facts

  • President Joe Biden's approval rating has dropped to a record low of 33%, as per a new Quinnipiac University poll.

  • 94% of Republicans, 56% of independents, 54% of Hispanics and 25% of African Americans polled disapproved of Biden.

The Spin

Republican narrative

This is great news for the Republicans and what stands out is the near-even split by Hispanics between the GOP and Democrats. This highlights the overall lack of trust in Biden and erodes a previously-safe block of democrat voters.

Democratic narrative

Biden is getting good marks for his handling of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, but the economy - jolted by the ever-changing pandemic - makes these numbers admittedly tough. With the fall elections just on the horizon, now's the time for the Democrats to rally passion among voters.
