Rasmussen Reports, one of the most reputable pollsters, on Friday, Jan. 22, announced its first job approval rating for new President Joe Biden, which shows the Democrat’s job performance is much lower than his predecessor Donald Trump’s entrance rating four years ago.
According to Rasmussen’s daily Presidential Tracking Poll, 48% of “Likely U.S. Voters” approved of President Biden’s job performance while 45% disapproved.
In a comparison, former President Trump’s first job approval rating was 56% when he entered office in January 2017, while his disapproval rating in this same poll was 44%.
The latest poll indicates that 36% of the voters “Strongly Approve” of the job President Biden is doing, while 38% “Strongly Disapprove.”
When President Trump entered the White House, 38% of the voters strongly approved and 36% strongly disapproved.
President Biden’s entrance rating is even more pathetic than President Trump’s exit approval rating which stood at 51% as Rasmussen reported on Jan. 19.
Biden campaigned for president on a promise to unite Americans of all races, but on the eve of his inauguration, Americans remained pessimistic about racial relations in the United States, according to Rasmussen.
Most voters also disagree with President Biden’s decision on his first day in the White House when he signed an executive order blocking further construction on the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which may kill as many as 11,000 American jobs.
