Biden approval reaches 44% in latest Gallup poll
During that survey window, the president signed the Inflation Reduction Act
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
President Joe Biden's approval rating reached a 12-month high of 44% in an August Gallup survey, up from his 38% rating in the same poll in July.
Despite the improvement, 53% disapproved of his performance, keeping Biden significantly under water with voters.
Biden last scored above that figure in August of last year when he earned a 49% approval rating, according to The Hill. Public support for him gradually eroded after the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in that month.
The Gallup survey, released Thursday, was conducted between Aug. 1 and 23, concluding days prior to his announcement of student loan debt cancellation.
During that survey window, the president signed the Inflation Reduction Act, a $740 billion spending package that included a number of Democratic agenda items such as electric vehicle subsidies and tax reforms. It further funded the hiring of 87,000 additional IRS agents, earning scorn from Republicans.
