New Poll Finds Biden Approval Rating High With Split By Gender, Race & Education
Through several Gallup polls in the early months of President Joe Biden‘s administration, approval of the president appears to be split along gender, race and educational lines.
While Biden enjoys near unanimous support from Democrats, 96% according to Gallup’s most recent data, 62% of women and 49% of men approve of Biden. Also, 64% of college graduates approve of Biden while only 51% of non-college grads approve. While 89% of black Americans and 73% of Hispanic Americans approve of Biden, only 45% of white Americans do.
Gallup also found that Biden’s support is centralized in urban areas with 73% of people in big cities approving of the president, while only 36% of rural area residents approve.
Gallup noted that “the size of those gaps in his initial approval ratings is larger than for recent presidents,” later suggesting that the polarization may be due to former President Donald Trump‘s harsh rhetoric on and off the campaign trail.
