The Joe Biden presidency is doing a complete 180-degree turn from the lows a month ago to now having some decent approval numbers. Biden’s aggregate approval rating in early July, according to FiveThirtyEight, was at 37.5%. It now sits at 41.6% which is four points higher and eleven percent up from that 37.5% figure. A number of factors are playing into Biden’s strong approval rating, including some legislative successes like the Inflation Reduction Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, and the Honoring Our PACT Act. Biden will likely also get a boost in the coming weeks from his decision to relieve $10,000 of student loan debt for most borrowers with those who received Pell grants qualifying for even more. The president is also likely benefiting in the polls from the comparison to his predecessor, who is under a number of investigations and recently had his home searched by the FBI. If this trend for Biden continues, it could spell disaster for the Republicans entering the midterms and tarnish the red wave they were hoping for.
