President Joe Biden has been rated less favorably than Vice President Kamala Harris and Dr. Anthony Fauci in a new Gallup survey of the performance of US federal leaders published on Monday.
Only three figures gained a favorable response from the majority of those polled: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, and Fauci. Roberts scored highest, with 60% approval from respondents, while Powell and Fauci received 53% and 52%, respectively.
Biden fared worse, gaining only 43% approval and 51% disapproval. The president has struggled for weeks in national polls, his rating consistently falling as the country deals with numerous crises, from the highest inflation in decades to the Covid-19 pandemic.
