(PartiallyPolitics.com) – A new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that President Biden’s approval ratings have reached their highest point since June.
According to the new poll, his rating is now at 42 percent, which is an improvement from the 41 percent recorded in February. Last summer his rating was around 36 percent.
The survey also showed that 81 percent of Democrats supported Biden’s student loan forgiveness program, while only 29 percent of Republicans held a similar position. The student loan forgiveness program is currently part of a case that the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for last week.
On the Republican side, 84 percent think that the government needs to make it harder for migrants to cross the southern border and try to seek asylum. Thirty-five percent of Democrats also agree with this position.
When it comes to the two parties, 81 percent of Democrats approve of Biden’s work as President while only 10 percent of Republicans think that Biden is doing a good job as President.
Last month, President Biden took a trip to Ukraine and Poland ahead of the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. However, this decision was quickly criticized as many people on both sides believed that Biden should instead visit East Palestine, Ohio following the Norfolk Southern train derailment early last month which led to a toxic spill in the area.
A different poll in February also showed Biden’s approval rating reaching its highest point in a year after it reached 46 percent. The President’s approval rating went up following his second State of the Union address.
