President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped 17 points in the area of immigration, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll — a massive reversal in public opinion that is likely to hurt his re-election chances.
The latest poll, conducted Aug. 28-30 among nearly 2,000 registered voters, showed Biden with only 36 percent support and 55 percent opposition immigration. The percentage dropped 17 points from 43 percent support and 46 percent opposition in April.
The drop came alongside cuts in Biden’s support along with other areas as well, especially in American attitudes toward the president’s evacuation of Afghanistan.
The study is not alone in observing Biden’s approval rating drop in key areas. A Rasmussen Reports survey showed a drop as well, though some recovery has already occurred.

Overall, the daily presidential tracking poll showed 46 percent approve of Biden’s job performance, while 52 disapprove.
COVID-19, an area of early strength with Biden, has also fallen according to a WAPO poll. The latest ranking showed a drop of 10 percent.

Across the board, Biden’s ratings have dropped in recent days. His one glimmer of hope is that he may have hit his lowest point and may move up in the future.
