More than half — 57% — of registered voters say they disapprove of the way President Joe Biden has handled the presidency, a record low, in the latest NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ poll released Monday.

And 40% say they “strongly disapprove” of the way Biden has handled his role. The 57% figure marks a 4-point increase since last month.

Biden’s approval rating has also dipped in other polls. A Rasmussen Reports poll published last week found that 58% of voters disapprove of the job Biden is doing, while a CBS News poll showed his disapproval mark at 56%.

The NewsNation poll, conducted May 18-19, among 1,009 nationwide registered voters, also found:

  • Out of inflation, unemployment, crime, and COVID-19, roughly 64% of Americans said inflation was the “bigger problem facing the United States today.”
  • Around 14% said the same about crime and the coronavirus pandemic, respectively; another 6% said the same about unemployment.
  • 48% of voters said they did not have “very much” trust in Congress, while roughly 20% said they have no trust at all.
  • 43% said they would vote for a Republican candidate should the election in the U.S. Congress in their district be held today, compared with 41% who said they would vote for a Democratic candidate.
  • 43% said they think Russia is a bigger threat to the United States today, followed by China at 28%.
