This Is Biden’s Latest Approval Rating in Every State

This Is Biden’s Latest Approval Rating in Every State

Over the course of Joe Biden’s presidency, his overall approval rating hasn’t been too much to brag about. It’s had its ups and downs, but overall, the trend – as it is with most Presidents – has been downward. But even though the Presidential approval rating that’s reported in the news reflects the national average, it’s actually calculated state-by-state. And with the presidential election approaching fast, it’s important to know which states support Biden the least, and in which states his approval rating is on the rise.

Shortly after Joe Biden was inaugurated, in March 2021, his approval rating peaked at 59 percent, with 35 percent disapproving. The figure has essentially swapped since then: As of July 2024, it stands at 37 percent approving, with 57 percent disapproving, the worst it’s been in his presidency.

The approval rating is calculated by a handful of organizations, who collect representative samples of the population by randomly polling people, generally by conducting phone conversations, online surveys, or mail-in questionnaires. The question asked is pretty simple: Do you approve, disapprove, or have no opinion about Joe Biden’s performance? The results are then calculated, tallied, interpreted, and reported to the media.

The state-level information is derived from a quarterly compilation of responses gathered through Morning Consult‘s ongoing daily U.S. survey of registered voters. The margin of error for registered voters differs from state to state, ranging from a maximum of about 6 percentage points in less populated states like Wyoming to a minimum of around 1 percentage point in highly populated states such as California.
