Poll: Biden’s Approval Rating Takes a Significant Tumble as His Agenda Sputters

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped as efforts to pass his multitrillion-dollar spending plans have stalled in Congress.

Biden holds a 48 percent approval rating and a 43 percent disapproval rating, according to the latest Monmouth University Poll.

This is down from his 54 percent approval and 41 percent disapproval rating in April.

When separated by political party, the president has an approval rating of 86 percent among Democrats, 36 percent among independents and 19 percent among Republicans.

“Biden’s rating is still in net positive territory, but it seems to have taken a dip with the growing uncertainty that his signature spending plans will be enacted,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said in a statement.

Despite their big price tags, Biden’s spending plans remain popular with a majority of the American public, according to the poll.

These plans include the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus plan, his $2.3 trillion infrastructure proposal and his $1.8 trillion “American Families Plan” plan to expand access to health care, college, paid leave and other services.

Biden’s infrastructure proposal has been in negotiations over the past month, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

The proposal would dedicate $110 billion to bridges and roads, $65 billion to expand access to broadband and $8.5 billion to public transit, according to the report.
