Joe Biden's approval rating once again approached its all-time low in January, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Only 38% of voters approve the work of the president's work, just 2% above the 36% he obtained in mid-2022, but below the 40% in December. Concern about the situation at the border and the economy are the two big problems that are affecting his management.

47% believe Biden is leading the country in the wrong direction

17% of those surveyed consider that the main problem facing the country is the avalanche of immigrants. This is a 6% increase compared to last month. In fact, it is the main concern of Republicans (36%), even ahead of the economy (29%). It is the main concern for Americans as a whole (22%), three points higher than last month.

Voters from both parties, however, agree that the majority (47%) believe that the country is heading in the wrong direction.
