President Joe Biden just got another dose of bad news that is likely not being well received in the White House.
Biden’s approval among voters long has been underwater. His support from the GOP has remained in single digits forever, and even among independents, it’s down 4% in the latest Gallup poll.

But now his support among members of his own Democrat Party is at an historic low.
A report in the Washington Examiner reveals only 75% of Democrats approve of Biden’s job performance.
The poll, done Oct. 2-23, came mostly after thousands of armed Hamas terrorists invaded Israel, leaving 1,400 dead and more than 200 civilians and soldiers held hostage in Gaza, according to the Israeli military. The evidence shows the terrorists drugged themselves and had written instructions to commit not just murder, but atrocities, such as burning whole families alive.
Factions of the Democrat Party have been demanding the president do more to help Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, despite his request already for $100 million in humanitarian assistance.
That assistance has raised concerns that the money will go directly to the terrorists in Hamas, as they make up the recognized government in Gaza.
Other Democrats are unhappy Biden has not demanded a temporary ceasefire to help Palestinian civilians.
Biden’s previously approval rating among his own party was 86%.
A report at the Post Millennial noted Biden’s approval rating overall was only 37%, “one of his lowest approval ratings in his presidency.”
Only 35% of independents approve of Biden’s job performance, a loss of 4 points from September, the report said.
Approval from Republicans remained at 5%, while 59% affirmed he’s doing a “poor job.”
The plunge also comes as multiple congressional committees are investigating possible Biden family corruption, including recent reports that the FBI, over the years, has heard suspicions from dozens of informants about Biden schemes and operations.
