A new NBC News poll shows President Joe Biden's approval rating continues to drop. Now 54% of those surveyed say they disapprove of Biden's performance while 42% say they approve.
That number has totally flipped around from six months ago when he had 53% approval and 39% disapproval.
"What people voted for was stability and calm," Democratic pollster Peter Hart told NBC News. "And what they got was instability and chaos."
"Democrats face a country whose opinion of President Biden has turned sharply to the negative since April," said Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, who conducted the survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies.
"The promise of the Biden presidency — knowledge, competence and stability in tough times — have all been called into question," Horwitt continued.
The numbers have plummeted on specific issues as well. A whopping 71 percent of respondents said the country is on the wrong track.
Also, people's opinion of Biden's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has dropped 18 points since April. On economic issues, the president is down 12 points as the cost of living soars higher and higher.
"When you see a wrong track of 71 percent, it is a flashing red light," McInturff, the GOP pollster told NBC. "These folks are telling us that this is not going well."
