How Biden’s Approval Rating Compares To Trump, Obama And Other Presidents After Nearly 100 Days

Biden Use Obscene Amount Of Taxpayer

Nearly 100 days into his presidency, Joe Biden has maintained a remarkably steady approval rating despite the tenuous state of the economy and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic—marks far better than his predecessor during the same period, but a few ticks below other modern presidents.


Biden’s approval rating hit 60% in an April 9 to April 12 Politico/Morning Consult poll with nearly 2,000 respondents, though his average rating is 53.1% 85 days into his presidency, according to FiveThirtyEight’s running tracker.  

By contrast, Donald Trump’s approval rating never cracked 45.5% during the same period of his presidency, and sat at about 41% on day 85.

While Trump’s popularity sagged several points during his first few months in office, Biden’s has consistently remained between 53% and 55%.  

Of the last six presidents, only Trump (41.2%) had a lower average approval rating than Biden 85 days in office, though George W. Bush and Bill Clinton both clocked in just a tick higher, at 54.2% and 53.4%, respectively. 

Barack Obama’s average approval rating sat at 60.7% on day 85, while George H.W. Bush’s was 59.1% and Ronald Reagan’s 67.6%, the highest of any of the last seven presidents during the same period. 


George W. Bush’s average approval rating jumped to nearly 90% after the Sept. 11 attacks, before gradually plummeting to around 27% before he left office. 


12. That’s about how many points lower Trump’s average approval rating (41.2%) was through 85 days in office than any of the last seven presidents. Trump’s average popularity never topped 50% during his four-year term. 


Presidents typically enjoy a “honeymoon period” during their first 100 days in office. For example, Obama’s average approval rating sat at about 61% 100 days in, but dropped to around 49% by day 365. Historians usually regard a president’s honeymoon period as the time during which they should attempt to push through part of their agenda. In March, Biden signed a $1.9 trillion stimulus package—which passed the Senate with zero Republican support—and is now looking to push through a $2 trillion infrastructure bill sometime this summer. 


This week, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blasted Biden and Democrats for attempting to push through what he called a “far-left” agenda without a commanding majority in Congress. “What I’m concentrating on is the future and what we are confronted with here is a totally left-wing administration, with a slight majority in the House, a 50-50 Senate trying to transform America into something no one voted for last year,” McConnell (R-Ky.) said.


On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) invited Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28. The speech is typically viewed as the first major event in a president’s term.
