A Senate Majority, If You Can Keep It

  A Senate Majority, If You Can Keep It The Democrats' twin victories in the Georgia Senate runoffs gave them a tenuous majority. With the upper chamber balanced at 50-50, Democrats' ability to exert control depends on their ability to hold all of these seats in 2022 (and the vice presidency, which is guaranteed through 2024).

The poll found that 96 percent of Democrats approve of Biden's early job performance, while only 10 percent of Republicans do.

According to Gallup, the gaps in Biden's approval by race and gender are comparable to those of former President Trump, but bigger than those under former Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton.

Biden has an average approval rating of 56 percent over the course of the first two and a half months of his presidency, which is comparable to the averages for Clinton and Bush, according to Gallup. His average approval rating is lower than Obama's was during that same period, and higher than former President Trump's.

Like Trump, Biden has scored only a 10-percent approval from the opposition party during this period, Gallup found.

The poll also found that the gap in approval rating for Biden between college graduates and nongraduates is in the double digits: 64 percent of college graduates approve of Biden's job performance, while 51 percent of nongraduates do.

The job approval rating for the current president is higher among women than among men, Gallup found. Forty-nine percent of men approve of Biden's job performance so far, while 62 percent of women do.

The polls are based on recent findings of combined data Gallup did for each president from their inauguration to the end of March, which covers the first two and half months of their presidency.

Polling results were based off data collected from phone interviews with a sample of 2,937 adults and a sampling error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
