Joe Biden has a negative approval rating in a national poll for the first time.

In poll after poll, the abortion activist has been on the plus side of the approval rating, but a new national poll from Rasmussen has Biden underwater days after a massive international boondoggle in Afghanistan.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapprove. The latest figures include 27% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 45% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18 among the most passionate Americans one way or the other.

All of the most recent national approval rating polls came before the Afghanistan crisis and Reuters had Biden at +8, YouGov at +2, Fox News at +7, Politico at +5, and The Hill at +10, which each of those polls coming in early August.

Among pro-life Americans, Biden is getting consistently low marks as he is hell-bent on forcing Americans to fund abortions and has compiled a radically pro-abortion record.

Earlier this month, Joe Biden’s administration dropped a lawsuit that President Donald Trump had filed on behalf of a pro-life nurse who was forced to participate in an abortion. Members are Congress are irate that Biden abandoned the pro-life nurse and have authored a joint letter condemning him.

Though Biden professes to be a devout Catholic, he openly defies church teachings about the sanctity of human life. After just 100 days in office, he already surpassed President Barack Obama as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history.

Recently, his administration stopped enforcing safety regulations that protect mothers and unborn babies from dangerous abortion drugs. Now abortion drugs are being sold by mail without a woman ever having to see a doctor in person.

Biden’s 2021 budget plan also would expand abortions by eliminating the Hyde Amendment for the first time in more than 40 years. Without the amendment, Americans would be forced to directly fund the killing of unborn babies in abortions through Medicaid and other federal programs. The amendment is credited with saving about 2.4 million unborn babies from abortion.
