WASHINGTON (AA) – Democrats did better-than-expected in the US midterm elections but the approval of US President Joe Biden’s job performance remains low, according to a poll on Thursday
Biden’s approval rating stands at 43% in the AP-NORC survey, unchanged from October.
Approximately 55% of voters said they disapprove of the way Biden has handled his presidency, now in its second year.
Only 25% of respondents see the economic situation in the country as “good” while 75% say it is “poor.”
A boost in Biden’s approval was not seen despite the president leading Democrats to one of the most successful midterm showings in modern history.
Following the Nov. 8 elections and a runoff in the state of Georgia, Democrats hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate but lost control of the House of Representatives.
Republicans hold a narrow eight-seat majority in that chamber — 221-213.
