    I think this can be expected for a few reasons.

    1. Ratings are more critical the longer an obstacle is present for an administration. COVID relief, as the article pointed out, is going well. However, there are still shortages in a variety of areas. This might cause prices to go up (no one likes that). Additionally, since some states are still using COVID relief in addition to unemployment, services are slower in restaurants and entertainment due to a lack of workers (no one likes that either, especially in the summertime).
    2. Ratings tend to flex and get more critical as time goes on. The honeymoon phase for Biden will be coming to a close soon and people will begin to hold him more accountable.
    3. Party polarization will cap the approval ratings at a rather mediocre score. I would be surprised if it ever surpassed and maintained anything above 55%.

    In South Africa we had a President who had grade 4, could not read and write, nor count.
    He managed to keep his power with socialist grants, Media control, and community support by false propaganda.
    His name was Jacob Zuma.
    A total idiot, and...
    South Africa was the clown of the world with him in charge.

    But boy, oh boy!
    Even us are now laughing at your president, your vice president, and your media that continiously pushes to paint Biden as Rambo, when it seems as if he was not yet potty trained!

    I cant believe that the USA would not feel ashamed of what they have become.
    Even the Aussies laugh at the USA now!

    Whichever poll you use Bidens approval rating is still higher than Trump ever achieved

    The irony is that much of the drop appears to be his handling of the covid issue, and yet he is clearly trying to do the right thing in promoting vaccinations. Most of the anti-vaccers are right-leaning, not left, so they're the real problem that's killing people-- literally.

    Biden's approval rating with our allies is over 70%, whereas Trump's approval rating at the end of his administration was a whopping 17%.

    This pattern isn't unheard of (in fact, it is pretty common). The president can do the right thing and still take the heaviest criticism despite it not being their fault.

    I don't pay much attention to approval ratings. We're still 16 months away from the midterm elections. A lot can happen between now and then.

    The 2016 election should serve to remind us how misleading approval ratings and polls are. :D

    Yes, I agree.
    They were all S*** scared of the USA and Trump, they feared the USA for the rightious and power they projected, getting the Islamic terrorist governments, Palestinian terrorists, North Corean dictators, Russian expansion, Chinese theft on Personal intellectual propperty, Chinese threats to Hong Kong, European misuse of the UN and Nato, and the threat to African dictator countries loosing financial help, gettin US companies back to the USA to stop child slavery in China, Assisting Japan against Chinese and N Corean threats, Assisting Israel against Islamic attacks, pushing UAE to stop support for Yemen, Iran, Iraq conflict, stopping ISIS, pushing Venezuella for their Communist opression, stopping Mexican Drug Cartels, etc, etc...

    Hell mate, with Biden comming in office, every corrupt, communist, socialist, dictator and counties hating the USA on their humanitarian preventative measures on them, were overjoyed!

    Yes, Even China sighed a breath of relief when you guys allowed a puppet of Peking to rule you guys!

    It is more than 70% approval rate for Biden pal.
    The other 30% are just shaking their heads when the leader of the free world makes an a** of the USA!

    I did not know about that ... was before my "googling time". America should have learned from it, and not make such a mistake in 2021

    Last month or two quite a few of these YouTubes were shared. Bit hard to call these "fake news", and when it's for real then America does make a fool of itself trying to hide it (I have not even seen it on RF, which is strange ... seems to me very important to diagnose such a 'problem' as soon as possible, him being the president of the US; at least make him do a test). But it won't take too long before they have to admit this if it's true.

    But maybe it is fake news, and they copy/pasted all kind of fragments, but does not seem that way to me. Below YouTube you can see for yourself

    Watching this YouTube shows a Biden who seems to have lost it to me (incoherent); I can't make anything better of it (auto starts at 01:23 ... just a minute)

    Well, the Aussies have always laughed at us. And why not? We're the kings and queens of comedy. We keep the world in stitches.

    I don't think too much of Biden one way or the other. I tended to think of him as a mediocre career politician who's in the position he's in only because he was considered the "lesser of two evils." All the other candidates sucked even worse, which is pretty sad when you think about it.

    Most of the smarter, intellectual, better-qualified Americans are too smart to even go into politics. Why should they? Americans don't really like politicians who are intellectuals. That was one of the main criticisms against Adlai Stevenson in '52 and '56. He was an intellectual. Heaven forbid that we should actually have an intellectual in high office.

    Sad thing is, what Americans really want is some kind of used car salesman - but someone they can trust. Someone who's down home, folksy, patriotic, just a regular person. When they're on the campaign trail, they make a point of showing them bowling or at a barbeque or playing football - just like a regular American.

    In fact, bowling seems to be a big thing for politicians. Anyone who doesn't bowl can't possibly be a real American.

    Your article talks about how approval ratings at this point in a president's term tend to dip a bit, generally:

    No, this is realy brainwash at its best.
    1. Right leaning people are anti vaccinators? Perhaps you should ask why? Let me inform you as to the fact that the Right leaning Americans are not against the vaccine, they actually want to know why Faucci is lying through his teath about vaccinations, masks etc. Have you ever seen Faucci speak about natural immunity? Vitamin D3?

    No, because it does not fit in with the narative of the Dems that Biden is this big hero that saved millions of people due to vaccines.
    Did you forget how Biden made Trump out as a Racist when Trump stopped visitors from China, then Europe, then the rest of the world?
    Did you forget it was Trump that got everyone to lock down to stop the infection rates, it was Trump who fought to get vaccines in the first instance, with Biden and the Dems critisizing Trump every step of the way?

    Did you forget how Biden took credit for the hork Trump did to get the vaccines so quick? And how he already had the mobilisation to get everyone vaccinated on the ground, long before Biden woke up on what was going on around him?

    No pal, Biden can not even get himself to be exposed to the Media to answer simple questions.
    Trump had the guts, the intellect, and the know how.

    Anyhow, If you believe Biden is such a great statesman, I can understand that you are one of realy, realy scared people, hoping Biden is not so bad as the world sees him to be.
    If I was a Democrat, I would also like to hide my head in the ground, hoping no one will realise that I am one of millions of those who made a mistake

    This post is nothing short of propaganda in it's own right.
