A new CNN poll spells big trouble for President Joe Biden.
The poll found 51% of Americans saying the economy is getting worse, and Biden received a 41% approval rating. When his handling of the economy is factored in, Biden receives just a 37% approval rating, according to the poll. His approval rating also drops down to 30% when considering his handling of inflation. Independent voters were less pleased with Biden, giving him a 26% approval rating for his handling of inflation.
The poll was conducted between July 1 and July 31, and 1,279 random adults were reached by mail initially. The surveys were conducted online or via telephone. There is a 3.7% margin of error.

Vice President Kamala Harris received similar ratings to Biden, with 57% of respondents disapproving of her job and 42% approving.
Meanwhile, a New York Times/Siena Poll found 39% of registered voters approve of Biden’s performance, while 54% disapprove.
