The latest survey, conducted between January 1- March 31, showed a slight improvement from the fourth quarter of 2022 when Biden’s approval rating was negative in 42 states, it added. Biden’s support remains strong in such states as California, Hawaii, Maryland, and Vermont, where most people are traditionally voting for Democrats. However, at least 7 in 10 voters disapproved of his job performance in West Virginia, North Dakota, and Wyoming.
