According to a poll released Thursday, US President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped to an all-time low of 36%.

The result is comparable to last month’s Quinnipiac University poll, with a one-point drop since October. Disapproval increased by one point to 53%.

According to the poll, Biden has the lowest approval ratings on record for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, the economy, and foreign policy.

Respondents were split 47 percent to 47 percent on whether the president cares about ordinary Americans, but a majority, 51 percent, said he is dishonest, and 57 percent said he lacks leadership skills.

Nonetheless, 57 percent support Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure package, which he signed into law this week, and 58 percent support his $2 trillion social spending package, which is currently stalled in Congress.

Biden is facing significant economic headwinds, with 61 percent of people saying the economy is worsening and only 16 percent saying it is improving. This comes as Americans face higher gas prices and annual inflation hovers around 6%.
