Ahead of the crucial midterm elections, the approval rating for President Joe Biden is the highest it’s been in nine months, according to a new poll from an unlikely source: Fox News.
Conducted jointly under the direction of Beacon Research and Shaw & Company Research, the Fox findings show Joe’s approval rating now stands at 46 percent, while 53 percent of respondents disapproved of him. Though still showing the President in a negative light with Fox New‘s target audience, his approval rating is the highest it’s been since January, when it stood at 47 percent.
Disapproval of the Democratic President from the right-wing Fox audience was 52 percent in the earlier poll, which was also conducted under the joint direction of Beacon Research—a Democratic pollster—and Shaw & Company Research—a Republican pollster. But Fox News viewers also seem to be aware of the Republicans’ plans to make their retirements more difficult.

The most recent figures suggest President Biden’s standing with traditionally conservative or independent voters is on the upswing as Democrats are hoping to keep control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Democrats facing tough races in battlegrounds states like Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Georgia are also hoping to see a boost as more election-denying candidates are seeing their poll numbers drop.
Why does Fox News poll show Democrats ahead? Because Dems are putting #PeopleOverPolitics and focused on lower costs, better-paying jobs and safer communities.

Ultimately, poll numbers are meaningless unless they translate into votes on November 8th, and President Biden made a West Coast sweep over the weekend to give Democrats in California and Oregon facing tough challenges an extra boost in the final weeks of their campaigns.
