President Biden Has Had A Very Good Month
Biden’s approval with all adults is 46% and with registered voters, it’s 49%. The last time he was at 46% was in March of 2022. He hasn’t been at 49% since the Afghanistan withdrawal in August 2021.
- By a 50%-45% margin, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say their best chance to win in 2024 is with Biden on the ticket. That’s a big change from November when just 38% thought they’d have the best chance with Biden and 54% said someone else.
- Biden has an 83%/13% favorable/unfavorable rating with Democratic and Democratic leaners, significantly higher than Vice President Kamala Harris (63%/21%) or Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg (63%/12%). Harris struggles particularly with Democratic-leaning independents.
At first, it might seem odd that President Biden’s numbers are improving now, but the month of February has been very good for the President, and we’ll discuss why below.
