The approval ratings of President Joe Biden "overall and on his handling of major issues, have all fallen, dramatically in some cases," according to the latest Economist/YouGov poll, which was released Wednesday.
Just 39% approve of Biden's overall job performance and a near majority (49%) disapprove; the 10-point negative rating is the first time Biden has been underwater during his eight-month presidency, according to the poll results.
The collapse in the overall approval rating represents a six-point drop in just one week, and Democrats were even more inclined to drop their approval in a nine-point swing, from 86% down to 77%.
