More than four months into his term, President Joe Biden continues to see strong job approval ratings and low disapproval ratings.

The most recent Gallup poll showed Biden with 54% approval ratings and 40% disapproval ratings. A Reuters/Ipsos poll was even more favorable to Biden, with 56% approval ratings and 39% disapproval ratings.

The ratings can be viewed as particularly positive considering contrasting and politically partisan opinions about the nation reopening. In late April, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed a majority of Americans support Biden's economic measures, which include tax hikes on the rich and a raise to the minimum wage.

Among the 12 issues cited in the latest Reuters/Ipsos survey, Americans pointed to "Economy, Unemployment and Jobs" as the most important problem facing the country, at 20%. Biden has insisted that the economy is on track, despite many states with Republican leadership opting out of federally funded pandemic programs that provide benefits to the unemployed.

Inequality/discrimination was the second-most important problem, at 10%. In his first day in office, Biden signed an executive order on "Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government."

Foreign policy has been a top issue in recent days with unrest in Gaza. According to a recent Hill-HarrisX poll, 56% of registered voters approved of Biden's handling of the recent outbreak of violence between Israel and Palestine.

The right-leaning Rasmussen Reports has also pointed to solid overall approval ratings for Biden but also with high disapproval ratings. The Rasmussen polls show Biden consistently above 50% approval, though disapproval ratings were at least 46%.
