President Joe Biden's approval rating has taken another hit and now sits at the lowest of his presidency.
According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 45% of likely voters approve of the job Biden is doing.
Some 54% disapprove of Biden, a rise that is starting to parallel the often poor polling of former President Donald Trump.
In a separate John Zogby Strategies survey, also new today, Biden is above water, with a 52% approval rating and the backing of nearly 9 in 10 Democrats.
Rasmussen's survey included a bad sign for the White House: that 45% of likely voters said that they "strongly disapprove" of Biden, equal to his total approval, which includes 27% who strongly approve of Biden.
Partisanship, as usual, is a heavy weight in the daily survey. While 77% of Democrats approve, 82% of Republicans disapprove.
And when asked about the direction of the nation under Biden, 63% said the nation is heading in the wrong direction, 33% said it is heading in the right direction.
The survey follows a few days of terrible news about Biden's handling of the fall of Afghanistan, more reports of building inflation, and spiking crime in the nation.
The Zogby poll asked about the situation in Afghanistan and found that more support his decision than not. It found that 49% support Biden's action to leave the country, while 37% opposed it.
Yet pollster John Zogby found that those polled feel conflicted over the departure, writing in his analysis, "When presented with arguments for and against withdrawal, adults split almost evenly between leaving Afghanistan vs. the U.S. honoring its commitment to the Afghan people."
His survey also found, similar to Rasmussen, that a sizable majority, 58% to 37%, feel that the country is on the wrong track.
