Biden’s new approval rating is due to an increase in support from independents and Republicans. Approval from independents increased from 48 to 55 percent while Republican support increased from 6 to 12 percent. Meanwhile, Republican support for Trump has decreased by 6 points, according to The Hill.
The poll was taken while the president has refused to concede the election and legally challenged election results in multiple states, noted The Charlotte Observer. (RELATED: Media Censoring Negative Biden News May Have Cost Trump The Election, Swing State Poll Shows)
