US President Joe Biden's job approval rating has fallen sharply in the past two months, according to a new survey conducted by the Pew Research Center last week on a little more than 10,000 American adults.
According to the survey, only 44% approve of Biden's handling of his job in contrast to 53% that disapprove.
A July survey concluded virtually the opposite: that 55% approved of the president's performance at his job and 43% disapproved.
Earlier this year, Pew reported that most of the American public had faith in Biden's handling of the coronavirus and its health impacts, as well as his policies on foreign relations and the economy.
In addition, two-thirds of Americans favor his policies on a tax increase of large businesses and high-income households, while 61% said that taxes should be raised on those who have a household income of over $400,000.
Another conclusion of the survey is a similar decline in public approval by both Democrats and Republicans. Approval from Democrats has dropped 13% from 88% to 75% since July, while among Republicans it has dropped by almost half (12%) from 17% to 9%.
Furthermore, most Americans remain pessimistic regarding the future of the US economy, saying that conditions will either worsen or will change little.
The survey also reported that most Americans are displeased with the Biden administration's handling of Afghanistan, with less than a quarter (24%) stating that the administration handled the situation well.
Also, more than half of American adults, around 56%, favor letting thousands of Afghan refugees into the US.
