President Joe Biden’s approval rating dropped below 50% for the first time since his inauguration, according to a Wednesday poll from Monmouth University.
Biden exited April with a 54% approval rating and a 41% disapproval. For the month of May, he fell six points to 48% approval and disapproval rose two points to 43%, according to the poll.
Nevertheless, many of Biden’s spending policies remain popular.
For example, the American Rescue Plan maintained a 60% approval rating, and his prospective American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan maintained 68% and 61% approval ratings, respectively.
