Recent opinion polls on Joe Biden’s presidency show that the Democratic Party’s chances of winning a majority in both houses of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections are tough.

US President Joe Biden has yet to complete a year in office, but the approval rating for his presidency in opinion polls is rapidly declining.

And in the NPR/PBS NewsHour/Maris poll, the percentage of those who “approved” of Biden’s presidency dropped 6 percentage points in one month from 49 percent to 43 percent.

The most surprising detail in the same survey was the 7% increase in the rate of those who “rejected” the Biden presidency.

Accordingly, while the percentage of those who did not approve of Biden’s presidency was 43 percent in the previous month, this percentage rose to 51 percent.

41 percent ‘totally disapproval’ of Biden’s actions

There is more bad news for Democrats in the poll about presidential approval rates, which are the biggest indicators of the midterm elections.

While 41 percent of respondents said they “strongly disagree” with Biden’s work, only 19 percent “strongly agree”.

While many experts interpret these rates as “disastrous for Democrats” in the midterm elections scheduled for November 2022.

The main reasons for this are the increase in inflation, the failure to meet expectations in employment, and the defeat that occurred during the withdrawal process from Afghanistan.

And according to the polling guide of the famous Gallup research institution in the United States, the parties of US presidents with an approval rate of less than 50 percent lost 37 seats in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

Presidential parties with 50 percent approval faced an average loss of 14 seats.

While Trump’s approval rating was around 40 percent during former President Donald Trump’s tenure in the 2018 midterm elections.

The Republican Party lost 40 seats in the House of Representatives and lost a majority of the House to the Democrats.

In the United States midterm elections, all seats in the House of Representatives and two-thirds of the Senate are open for elections.
