Support for Biden erodes among Democrats in New Reuters Poll

Support for President Biden has eroded among Democrats in a new Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Per Reuters, the report finds “a growing number of Americans disapprove of Biden’s leadership on the economy, gun violence and taxation, with the biggest decline coming within Biden’s Democratic Party.”

48% of those who responded said they approve of how Biden is handling the economy compared to 52% who said they approve in the same survey in April.

In addition, the number of Americans who disapproved of Biden’s economic record rose 4 points to 43%.

Reuters also reported:

Just 35% of the country thinks the U.S. economy is headed in the right direction, and 44% say they are “very concerned” that prices will keep rising, according to the Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Among Democrats, 78% said they approved of Biden’s economic agenda, down 7 points from April, while the number of Democrats who disapproved of his economic plan rose 6 points to 15%. That includes an 11-point drop in approval among Democrats under 40 years old, an 8-point drop in approval among minority Democrats and Democrats without a college degree.
