More than half of American voters agreed that President Joe Biden is not competent to lead the nation, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday.
“President Joe Biden receives a negative 38 – 53 percent job approval rating, the lowest score he’s received from the American people on his job performance since taking office, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN–uh–pea–
ack) University national poll of adults released today,” a press release concerning the poll stated.
“In Quinnipiac’s last national poll released 3 weeks ago, he
received a negative 42 – 50 percent job approval rating.
Today, Republicans (94 – 4 percent) and independents (60 – 32 percent) disapprove of the job Biden is doing, while Democrats approve 80 – 10 percent,” it added.

“Battered on trust, doubted on leadership, and challenged on overall competency, President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues its downward slide to a number not seen since the tough scrutiny of the Trump administration,” Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy said in the press release.
The survey’s results come following a difficult month for Biden. In addition to a failed military exit from Afghanistan, the president has struggled to respond to the border crisis and the nation’s growing economic issues that include sharp inflation.
The president’s vaccine mandate announcement has also angered many Americans. Biden announced last month that federal employees and companies with 100 or more employees must vaccinate all workers.
The poll of 1,326 U.S. adults nationwide were surveyed from October 1st – 4th with a margin of error of +/– 2.7
