Thirty-two percent of respondents said they do not approve of Biden's job performance since he was inaugurated on Jan. 20. A 58% majority expressed approval for new president's job performance. 

Biden, a Democrat, won the 2020 election against then-President Trump by about 5 percentage points of the total votes cast nationwide, emerging with 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump's 232. 

The survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted by Rasmussen using a mixed-mode approach from Jan. 21-23, 2021.
