More Americans are disapproving of President Joe Biden's job performance, with polls revealing that independents are increasingly stating that they are against Biden's job performance, a voter group that Biden won over in the election.
According to RealClearPolitics average, just 43.4 percent of Americans approve of Biden's job performance, with his rating taking a dive following the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, and continuing to free fall since then.
Biden has taken a sharp decrease in popularity amongst independent voters. In the 2020 election, Biden emerged with a 13 point lead amongst independent voters, a group that former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lost by 4 points in 2016, according to CNN.
According to a Trafalgar Group poll conducted between Oct. 4 and 6, 59.5 percent of those categorized as no party or other said they disapprove of Biden's job performance.
A Politico poll states that 43 percent in respondents who identified as independents approve of Biden's job performance.
According to an Investor's Business Daily poll, "Independents now disapprove of Biden's job performance by 45%-32%, a modest improvement over September's 50%-33% disapproval."
According to "polls that meet CNN's standards for reporting, Biden's net approval rating (approve-disapprove) among independents in polls completed in September and October stands at -16 points. Not surprisingly, his net approval rating is significantly higher among Democrats (+79 points) and lower among Republicans (-84 points)."
"That alone makes Biden less popular at this stage of his presidency than any president in the past 40 years except for Donald Trump," wrote the Washington Post in regards to Biden's overall job performance poll numbers.
