Kristen Soltis Anderson, Fox News Contributor and pollster joined Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson Show to break down President Biden’s job approval rating as he closes in on his first 100 days in office.
Kristen Soltis Anderson said,
“I think it’s important to put those low 50s numbers in context, because on the one hand, historically speaking, looking back over the last many, many, many presidents, that would be not such a great number to have. Typically, you know, presidents have this first hundred days is something of a honeymoon period where they’re given a bit more of the benefit of the doubt by voters and they tend to have relatively strong marks. But what we’ve seen over the last two decades is a pretty consistent erosion of that norm, where even though when Obama took office, he had some Republicans giving him the benefit of the doubt, it wasn’t very many. When Trump took office, almost no Democrats were giving him the benefit of the doubt. So we’ve seen that pattern continue. So it’s very likely that you’re going to see Joe Biden’s job approval numbers hang around that kind of low 50s range unless the administration does something really catastrophic that would really alienate swing voters. At this point. He hasn’t done so, doesn’t mean he can’t. But at the moment, that’s what’s keeping his numbers above 50 percent.”
