President Biden’s job approval currently sits 10 points lower than that of his former boss, President Barack Obama, at the same point in his presidency in 2009.
According to approval ratings averages calculated by RealClearPolitics (RCP), Obama’s approval rating on Oct. 11 during his first year in office sat at 53 percent with a disapproval rating of 40 percent.
During all of Obama’s eight years as president, Biden worked as his vice president.
It has been over 12 years since the two started their time in the White House, and Biden is now sitting at an RCP average approval rating of 43 percent with a disapproval rating of 52.3 percent.
The averages calculated by RCP are pulled from a variety of polls including ones done by Fox News, Gallup, Reuters/Ipsos, Rasmussen and Monmouth.
Biden’s approval rating has been steadily dropping since he took office in January as his administration has attempted to manage a variety of blunders from the chaotic troop withdrawal from Afghanistan to the record-smashing surge of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border.
