  • Three weeks from the U.S. midterm elections, President Joe Biden’s approval rating stayed close to the lowest level of his presidency as Americans worried about inflation, a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll completed on Tuesday found.
  • The two-day national poll found that 40% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance, unchanged from a week earlier.
  • Biden’s unpopularity is helping drive the view that Republicans will win control of the U.S. House of Representatives on Nov. 8, though experts say Democrats have a better chance of keeping the Senate.
