Biden Approval Rating Moves Lower As Gas Prices Rise

US

President Joe Biden has seen his approval rating dip following a month of steadily increasing retail gasoline prices.

  • In remarks at the White House earlier today Biden noted that rising gas prices were boosting Republicans in polls but said he believed that the measures his administration has taken to reduce gas prices will be reflected in polling in coming week.
  • Biden: "The back and forth. Them ahead, us ahead. Polls have been all over the place. I think we're going to see one more shift back to our side in the closing days. Let me tell you why I think that. We are starting to see some of the good news on the economy. Gas prices are down sharply in 46 of 50 states because of what I've been doing. We're moving in the right direction and there's more to come."
  • Biden's approval currently sits at 42.4% on RealClearPolitics, down from 43.4% last week.
