Biden Job Approval Remains Low Ahead Of Re-Election Announcement


President Biden is expected to announce his re-election bid tomorrow as he struggles with low approval and persistent doubt over his age and suitability for the role.

  • WaPo: “Two people involved in the reelection effort said they expect Julie Chávez Rodriguez, the director of the White House office of intergovernmental affairs, to manage the campaign, although people with knowledge of the discussions cautioned on Saturday that there had been no final decision yet.”
  • According to RealClearPolitics, Biden is experiencing a downturn in approval as voters express concern about the economy and gridlocked debt ceiling talks.
  • A recent NBC poll has found that the percentage of voters who "strongly approve" (15%) of Biden's performance has dropped to the lowest level of his presidency.
