The number of Americans who approve of the President currently sits at 39 percent and the number that disapprove at 54 percent, according to Real Clear Politics.

Monday was the last time Biden’s approval rating was above 40 percent, according to the average, when it was just 0.3 points above the margin.

The RCP average includes polls from Economist/YouGov, Rasmussen Reports, Politico/Morning Consult, IBD/TIPP, Reuters/Ipsos, Monmouth, Insider Advantage and Harvard-Harris.

The poll-of-polls also found that when it comes to the direction of the country just 27.6 percent of respondents believe it is going in the right direction.

However, a staggering 65.1 percent believe it is on the wrong track.

Out of the five topics participants were surveyed on, Biden’s administration’s handling of the Covid crisis is the only one in which the President received an approval rating above 40 percent.

The RCP average found 43.6 percent of participants approved of the President’s handling of the pandemic.

Whereas, 52 percent disapproved of Mr Biden’s decisions.

This devastating blow to the President comes after a recent survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports and the National Pulse revealed 54 percent of likely US voters think Mr Biden will go down as one of the “worst” President in the country’s history.
