Six in 10 voters would rather have another President than President Biden if the 2024 presidential election happened today. That makes his current reelection prospects gloomier than they ever were for his most recent predecessors, Donald Trump and Barack Obama. The data was presented by a Fox News national survey published Sunday.

At the end of Biden's first year in office, economic anxiety is higher than a year ago, and many feel the pandemic is not at all under control. His job rating in both these areas is down in recent months, and over half of voters disapprove of Biden's performance overall.

The President's job approval has been awful since October, and that is still the same: 47% approve and 52% disapprove.

Overall, 54% approved of Biden at his 100-day mark in April. The 7-point decline can be attributed almost solely to a drop among Democrats (from 95% in April to 85% today). Approval among Republicans and Independents has changed by only a point or two over the same period.

Approval of Biden reached as high as 56% (June) and fell as low as 44% (November).

Biden's current job ratings are nearly identical to former President Donald Trump's at this point in his presidency, as 45% approved and 53% disapproved in January 2018.

Vice President Kamala Harris' job rating is a bit lower than Biden's: 43% approve, 54% disapprove. Seventy-eight percent of Democrats and 11% of Republicans approve.

Biden's ratings are also negative on top issues. A record 52% disapprove of his handling of the pandemic, up from 34% in early 2021. Even larger numbers disapprove of foreign policy (54%), the economy (58%), and border security (59%).

Seventy-three percent of voters say economic conditions are only fair or poor, up from 66% last December.

Even more, 85%, are worried about inflation, and that sentiment is bipartisan: 81% of Democrats and 91% of Republicans are concerned. Voters don't agree on what's causing inflation. By 48-42%, more blame government policies than the pandemic. Democrats (66%) point to the pandemic, while Republicans (73%) cite federal policies.

Republicans (80%) are also more likely than Democrats (56%) to think inflation is clinging around for another year or more. In total, more than two-thirds feel that way (69%).

The percentage saying the pandemic is "not at all" under control jumped 13 points since last month, from 28 to 41%. Nearly three-quarters (72%) remain concerned about coronavirus.

About two-thirds believe vaccines and masks are useful in the fight against COVID-19, while just over half say the same about frequent testing and vaccine mandates. Democrats are at least twice as likely as Republicans to think masks, mandates, and vaccines work. The gap is most narrow on vaccines: 86% of Democrats say it is effective vs. 51% of Republicans.
