President Biden's approval rating is leveling off at 42 percent, according to Gallup poll released Friday.

The survey, conducted Oct. 1-19, found that 52 percent disapprove of the job Biden is doing as president, while a separate six percent had no opinion.

The poll found Biden's approval rating essentially holding steady after sliding to 43 percent in September, which was the first time Gallup recorded a majority disapproved of Biden's job performance. At that time, Biden was facing bipartisan criticism for his handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Gallup surveyed 832 adults from Oct. 1-19. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points.
