President Joe Biden's approval rating has dropped, prompting speculation about the future of his presidency.

It was shocking, but even more puzzling. A consensus of commentators, pundits, pollsters, handicappers, and election forecasters (myself included) had predicted that President Joe Biden would start his presidency with high approval ratings. But now, just a few months into his tenure, his approval rating has dropped significantly.

According to Real Clear Politics' (RCP) average of polls, as of June 2021, Biden's approval rating stands at 53.6%, while his disapproval rating is at 42.2%. While these numbers might not seem alarming, they are a sharp decline from just a few months ago when his approval rating was over 60%.

The drop in Biden's approval rating has led to speculation about the future of his presidency. Some analysts have suggested that his declining popularity could hurt his ability to pass key pieces of legislation, such as his infrastructure plan. Others have argued that it could make it more difficult for the White House to maintain control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections.

Former President Donald Trump discounted low-polling competitors for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination like former NJ Gov. Chris Christie, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, and former Vice President Mike Pence, but he did not dismiss the idea of another presidential run himself.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Friday said President Joe Biden is 'doing fine' after 'briefly' falling on stage at a military base during a speech marking the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said he would like to see Presidents Trump and Biden explain their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and how they plan to move the country forward.

The drop in Biden's approval rating is also reflected in the latest RCP poll averages for Congress. As of June 2021, the RCP average for Congress stands at 28.3% approval and 61.8% disapproval. This suggests that voters are not happy with the performance of both the White House and Congress.

The most recent liberal ABC News/Washington Post poll showed President Joe Biden's approval rating at 36 percent - the lowest in history for a president at this point in his presidency.

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) in an interview on 'Firing Line' with Margaret Hoover said former President Donald Trump is the 'most powerful Republican in the country,' but he stopped short of endorsing him for another presidential run.

While there are many factors that could be contributing to Biden's declining approval rating, one thing is clear: the White House will have to work hard to regain the confidence of the American people. This could involve a renewed focus on key issues such as the economy, healthcare, and climate change, as well as a concerted effort to communicate the administration's plans and goals more effectively.

In the end, only time will tell how Biden's declining approval rating will impact his presidency. But one thing is clear: the White House will have to work hard to regain the trust and support of the American people if it hopes to achieve its ambitious agenda in the years ahead.
