Biden sees dip in support amid new COVID cases

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden's job approval rating has ticked down and Americans are taking a notably less positive view of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

That's according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The survey shows Biden's overall job approval rating dipping from 59% last month to 54%.

The public's assessment of his handling of the pandemic has fallen even further, down from 66% support in July to 54% now.

That coincides with increased COVID-19 cases in the United States and stalled vaccination rates.

The decline in support also comes as other storm clouds gather over Biden's presidency, most notably the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan.
