Marist National Poll: Biden Job Approval Rating, March 31, 2022

Biden Job Approval Rating Down to 39%, Democratic Base Fractured

President Joe Biden’s post-State of the Union job approval rating bounce has come back down. 39% of Americans approve of the job President Biden is doing in office, down from 47% immediately following his address. Biden’s current job approval rating is identical to the score he received in February and matches his lowest since taking office. A majority of Americans (54%) currently disapprove of the president’s job performance. The decline in Biden’s approval rating is due largely to his Democratic base. More than one in five Democrats (21%) now say they disapprove of how Biden is doing, more than twice the proportion of Democrats (9%) who had this view in early March after the State of the Union.
