A new national poll shows that President Joe Biden's approval rating has dropped during his first month in the White House.
A Monmouth University was released showing Biden holding a 51% approval rating, that three points down from America's approval just one month ago.
What really hurts the president is his growing disapproval rating of 42%, up from 30% in late January. This rise comes from people's newly formed opinion of Biden.
Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murry pointed out, "It's probably not a surprise that Biden's honeymoon period closed quickly."

From Fox News:
An average of all of the latest national polls that measured Biden’s approval rating – compiled by Real Clear Politics – put’s the president’s numbers at 55% approval and 40% disapproval.
Ninety-one percent of Democrats questioned in the Monmouth survey approve of Biden’s performance – basically unchanged since January. Eight in 10 Republicans disapprove, a jump of 10 points from a month ago. Independents are divided – with 43% approving and 48% disapproving. That’s a switch from January, when Biden held a 47%-30% approval/disapproval rating with independents.
The Monmouth survey also points to a drop in approval for Congress.
Three in 10 surveyed give approve of the job Congress is doing, down from 35% a month ago. Disapproval jumped from 51% in January to 59% now. But Monmouth notes that the January "results were a historical high in eight years of national polling by Monmouth. While the current ratings have declined, they remain on the higher end of the range across which they have fluctuated since 2013."
According to the poll, more than 6 out of 10 Americans support the massive $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill being considered by Congress.
