The approval ratings of US President Joe Biden remain challenging. According to a recent poll by The Hill, Biden's approval rating stands at 39.1%, with a disapproval rating of 57.8%. RealClearPolling reports similar numbers, with a slight variation depending on the pollster. Gallup indicates that Biden's approval rating has dropped to 38%, near his all-time low.

Despite the recent debate, Biden hasn't seen a significant change in his numbers. Pew Research Center notes that his approval rating among Democrats is around 65%, but only 6% among Republicans. Overall, Biden faces a tough landscape with a 35% approval rating and a 62% disapproval.

Biden versus Trump is hardly a choice

On the other hand, former President Donald Trump's approval ratings also show interesting trends. In the wake of the debate, Trump has managed to maintain his base's support. The Quinnipiac University poll reveals that Trump's approval is around 45%, with a disapproval rating of 52%. Gallup's latest data shows Trump holding steady with an approval rating of around 41%, reflecting stable support from his base.

Trump's numbers are bolstered by strong support from his base, particularly among Republicans. However, like Biden, he faces significant disapproval from the general electorate.

So, what does this mean for the upcoming election? Both candidates are struggling with low approval ratings, and the recent debate hasn't significantly shifted public opinion. Biden's numbers reflect a divided Democratic base and strong opposition from Republicans, while Trump's ratings show solid Republican backing but overall disapproval from a broader audience.

As we move closer to the election, these approval ratings will be crucial in shaping the strategies of both campaigns. Stay tuned for more updates and in-depth analysis on the road to 2024.
