President Joe Biden’s approval rating has plunged in May to its lowest point since he took office, according to a survey commissioned by the Associated Press.

The poll, published by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research, reveals that just 39% of adults in the United States approve of Biden’s performance as president.

Overall, just roughly 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good, both down from approximately 3 in 10 a month earlier. Those drops were concentrated among Democrats, with only 33% within the president’s party saying the nation is headed in a good direction, down from 49% in April.

Biden’s overall approval among Democrats sits at 73% which shows a drop from 82% in the same survey last year. Biden never dropped below 82% approval among Democrats in 2021.

Last year, the same Associated Press poll revealed Biden with an approval rating of 63%, 24 points higher than his approval rating today.

Biden’s handling of the economy, according to the poll, is one of the largest reasons for the underwater polling, with two-thirds of Americans stating they disapprove of the way he has presided over that situation.

Furthermore, just 18% of Americans say that Biden’s policies have helped more than they have hurt the economy, which is down from 24% in March. In the meantime, 51% of Americans say his policies have hurt more than they have aided with 30% saying he hasn’t made a difference one way or the other.

The majority of Americans also disapprove of Biden's handling of several other matters, including the war in Ukraine, the United States' relationship with Russia and immigration.

The AP-NORC poll of 1,172 adults was carried out May 12-16 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.0 percentage points.

Biden's lackluster polling has become a trend since January with many polls revealing that Americans across the political spectrum are dissatisfied over matters varying from record high gas prices and historic inflation to a nationwide baby formula shortage.

Biden's polling numbers have suffered a hit even from constituencies that have historically been reliable for Democrats, a trend evident in a Quinnipiac poll this week revealing that the president's approval rating with Hispanics has dropped to 26%.

The same Quinnipiac poll executed last year put Hispanic support for Biden at 55%.

A Fox News poll earlier this month revealed that Biden's sagging poll numbers are further reflected in projections for how Democrats will fare in the forthcoming midterms.

Americans seem ready to oust the incumbent party in this fall’s elections, with 39% favoring the Democratic candidate in their House district and 46% supporting the Republican, if voting today.
