Fifty-five percent (55%) of voters nationwide now approve of the way President Biden is performing his job. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 34% disapprove and 6% are not sure.
The current totals currently include 32% who Strongly Approve and 32% who Strongly Disapprove.
Overall approval of the president is little changed from the first two months of the Biden Administration. However, the number who Strongly Disapprove has inched up a bit.
Among people who are on-line almost constantly, 69% approve of the president’s performance. Just 25% disapprove. Among the rest of the nation’s voters, opinions of the president are evenly divided: 48% approve and 45% disapprove.
That gap is consistent with data released earlier showing that 42% of those who are online almost constantly are Democrats. Just 27% align with the GOP. Among the rest of the nation’s voters, a modest plurality (36%) are Republicans. This helps explain why many social media platforms appear supportive of political views that are far more progressive than the nation at large.
While the president’s overall ratings are positive, just 36% give Biden good or excellent marks for handling the border situation.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters nationwide believe it is fair to describe the United States as a Melting Pot. Twenty-one percent (21%) disagree. Sixty-five percent (65%) believe it’s a good thing for immigrants and new ethnic groups to assimilate into American culture. Just 16% disagree.
Other recent data showed that 65% of voters believe the U.S. is friendlier towards immigrants than most other nations.
Seventy percent (70%) of voters view immigration and border control as a national security issue. Sixty percent (60%) see the growing number of illegal immigrants to be an invasion of the United States. Fifty-eight percent (58%) believe that drug cartels have more control of the Southern border than the U.S. government.
On a different topic, 71% Favor Ending Supplemental, Pandemic Related, Unemployment Benefits.
Moving forward, we expect to update the president’s job approval rating every month or so.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from June 3-5, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 237 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
