President Joe Biden’s dismal approval ratings continue to plague him and his party.

In several swing states Democrats must have in order to keep control of the Senate, Biden’s approval rating is, on average, 15 points underwater, Breitbart News reported Saturday, noting the figure is “a key midterm election bellwether metric Democrats fear come November 8.”

According to Civiqs, Biden has a negative approval rating in the following swing states: Arizona (-18), Georgia (-20), Nevada (-17), New Hampshire (-1), Ohio (-24), Pennsylvania (-13), and Wisconsin (-13). Not included in the calculation are Biden’s approval ratings in Florida (-15), Colorado (-8), or Alaska (-21).

The sour numbers are one reason Biden has largely remained off the campaign trail. Biden has only traveled to 46 cities and held 11 fundraisers during the 2022 midterm cycle, according to Air Force One logs. Those numbers are contrasted with former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, who campaigned far more for their respective parties in the 2018 and 2010 midterms.

Biden’s own policies have neutralized the president’s popularity and, hence, the ability to help drive campaign fundraising and local media attention, impacting Democrat candidates’ chances of keeping the Senate.

White House director of political strategy and outreach Emmy Ruiz told Axios on Thursday that Biden is still working hard to help Dem candidates defeat Republicans, though he hasn’t campaigned nearly as much as former presidents.

“The president has made historic investments in the different [Democratic fundraising] committees … to make sure we keep the Senate and House,” she said.
