The poll showed that only half of Americans approve of Biden's work

The approval rating of U.S. President Joe Biden continues to fall, as evidenced by the results of a survey published by the Associated Press.

According to a study conducted by the NORC Center at the University of Chicago, the popularity of the American leader, who previously "promised to unite the country," has fallen sharply against the background of recent events in the United States and abroad.

It is clarified that only 50% of Americans surveyed rated Biden's work positively, 49% disapprove of it. In August, the share of those who support the course of the president's policy was 54%, in July — 59%.

Since July, Biden's policy approval rating has also declined among Democrats (from 92% to 85%). Among Republicans, 11% approve of the activities of the head of state, these data are similar to the July figures. Among those who do not consider themselves to be either, the rating dropped from 62% to 38%.

The survey also showed that 47% of Americans approve of economic transformations (in March there were 60% of such). Slightly more than half of the respondents, 57%, also approve of the measures taken by the authorities to combat the coronavirus pandemic — in July this number was higher (66%).

Overall, only 34% of Americans say the country is moving in the right direction. The authors of the study attribute the downgrade to the ambiguous actions of the current administration in response to the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, the crisis with Haitian refugees in Texas, and the deterioration of the epidemiological situation with coronavirus in the country.

The leader of the Democratic Party, 78-year-old Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States following the results of the elections held last November. According to sociological research, a third of Americans considered Biden's election victory dishonest.
