Biden’s Approval Rating Soars After State Of The Union Address



President Joe Biden

President Joe Biden’s approval rating jumped to 47 percent after State of the Union address, a poll released Friday shows.

The survey, conducted by NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist National Poll found that 47 percent of Americans approve of the job he is doing as president, which is a jump from the 39 percent approval rating he had in the same poll last month.

“This is an unusual bounce,” Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, said in a statement, according to The Hill. “It gets him back to where he was pre-Afghanistan.”

The poll also found Biden’s approval rating is on the upswing on issues like Ukraine and COVID-19. Fifty-five percent of Americans approve of how he is handling the coronavirus pandemic, up from 47 percent in February.

Fifty-two percent approve of how he is handling the situation with Russia and Ukraine, up from 34 percent in February when tensions were simmering but Russia had not yet launched its invasion.

An overwhelming majority of Americans surveyed — 83 percent — also supported the United States’ and other allies’ economic sanctions against Russia.

“Biden’s leadership on Ukraine has resonated over the last week with Americans. He has forged a consensus in the U.S. on his policy toward Ukraine. Americans are even willing to sacrifice higher energy prices in support of the Ukrainian people,” Miringoff said.

As noted by The Hill, the increasing approval numbers are welcome news for Biden ahead of the midterm election.

The NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll was conducted March 1 and March 2 with 1,322 adults, The Hill reported.
