President Joe Biden faced poor job approval ratings entering the 2022 midterm elections, prompting concerns from Democrats that the party would face heavy losses.

But Biden's numbers began to tick up leading up to Election Day. According to an NBC News poll conducted from Nov. 3-5, Biden had a 44% approval rating and a 53% disapproval rating days before the election.

The numbers are encouraging considering this point of Biden's term and might suggest that Democrats have better momentum for 2024 than many strategists previously thought. In the midterms, Republicans failed to take control of the Senate, lost key gubernatorial races and have a slim majority in the House.

An Economist/YouGov survey showed a 44% approval rating and a 53% disapproval rating. This is a slight decrease from a late October poll, which showed Biden with 45% approval and 52% disapproval and a larger decrease from an early October poll which showed his approval ratings 4 points higher than the most recent poll.

Politico shared similar numbers in a recent survey report, with Biden at a 43% approval rating and a 54% disapproval rating.

A Nov. 17- 21 poll by right-leaning Rasmussen showed a 44% approval and 54% disapproval rating for Biden -- a two-point increase from a poll conducted in the days leading up to the midterm elections.

But a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted from Nov. 14-15 showed Biden at a dismal 37% approval and a 57% disapproval rating.

According to FiveThirtyEight, Biden's job approval currently stands at 41.4% among registered voters.

Biden is just below other presidents at this point of this term. Donald Trump had a 42.9% approval rating, while Barack Obama was at 45.5%, and Bill Clinton was at 43.8%. George W. Bush had the strongest approval ratings (68%) after the 2002 midterms, as many Americans continued to rally around the White House after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Biden is one of the only sitting presidents who has faced questions about seeking re-election. He turned 80 years old on Sunday and some Democrats have suggested that he not pursue another White House bid in 2024.
