Biden Is Less Popular Than Trump Was at the Height of Russia Investigation [VIDEO]


President Joe Biden’s approval rating has taken a significant hit amid an economic downturn, and he’s now less popular than former President Donald Trump was during the Russia investigation.
Biden lost his majority approval rating in mid-August 2021 as the American withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan gave way to the Taliban’s takeover. He’s continued to see a decline over the last year and the president is struggling significantly to win Americans over as the U.S. faces a 40-year high in inflation, people struggle to buy homes and threats of a recession loom.

After seeing a declining approval rating, Biden’s popularity sank to its lowest point of his presidency, reaching an average of 37.2 percent, according to RealClearPolitics. Biden regularly enjoyed a higher approval rating than his predecessor.

But his most recent rating dropped below Trump’s December 2017 average approval rating of 37.3 percent, an all-time average low for his administration that occurred after his former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. Flynn admitted that he made false statements to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during Trump’s transition.

The first Trump official to face criminal charges, Flynn’s guilty plea was viewed as a major development in special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into whether the Trump team colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.
