The  job approval of US President Joe Biden as well as congress has dropped as the country sees a spike in the number of cases despite vaccination of the majority of people.

Biden’s approval dropped to 52 percent, 10 points down from where he was in June.

“Overall the country has come down from its mood highs as the Delta variant is putting a crimp in America’s plan to party now and go back to work after Labor Day,” said.  Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey.
The number of those optimistic about the role of the US in the coronavirus pandemic has also dropped to 46 percent after peaking at 53 percent in June.

Most voters surveyed, 53 percent, reportedly said they  believe that the US economy is strong, while 47 percent said it is weak.

US authorities have warned that the worst is yet to co in the Covid-19 pandemic.

Biden’s figures are still much higher than those of former President Donald Trump, who never reached a 50-recent score during his tenure.
