Joe Biden approval rating slumps for fourth week in a row as riots hit the streets

Mr Biden will perhaps be pleased to know his approval rating has not reached the historic low of his predecessor Donald Trump, who had the lowest ever rating of 33 percent in December 2017, but it is certainly heading in that direction.

His approval rating has remained below 50 percent since August when the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan resulted in outrage across America and the world.

Men are more disapproving, with 58 percent viewing Mr Biden negatively, compared with 57 percent of women.

Democrats are unsurprisingly more likely to view the President favourably, with 73 percent approving of his performance, remaining largely unchanged from the last poll on June 15.
