President Joe Biden isn’t benefiting domestically from Russia’s invasion, despite an outpouring of public support for Ukraine from across the political spectrum.
One week of the war in Ukraine has left Biden’s polling essentially unchanged. The latest poll from Morning Consult and Politico showed 53% of respondents disapproved of Biden’s job performance the week prior to Russia’s invasion (Feb. 19-21), with 45% approving. Following the invasion, Biden’s approval rating fell to 41%, while his disapproval rating rose to 56%.
