Joe Biden has become the least popular modern US president at this period in a term of office, according to a new poll.

The new Gallup poll as reported by RT on Friday shows Biden’s approval rating hit a new low, dropping for the first time to 38 percent.

Biden's latest approval rating is down three points from the previous month and 12 points from July 2021.

Fifty-nine percent believe Biden's performance has been poor with 45 percent of those who were interviews in the survey "strongly disapproving" the Democratic president's performance.

However, on the other side of the spectrum Senate Republicans have been skeptical about whether Donald Trump can win the GOP nomination in 2024, or even run for another term in the White House.

One Republican senator, who requested to remain anonymous as reported by The Hill, said the “cascade” of embarrassing details about Trump’s conduct in the weeks before Jan. 6, 2021, and during the attack on the US Capitol will seriously damage his political viability ahead of the 2024 election.

“I don’t think he’ll run again and that’s a good thing, because of the whole cascade of events,” the senator noted.

Most respondents to a Yahoo/YouGov survey conducted earlier this month said neither Trump nor Biden should seek re-election in 2024.

The survey showed most Americans have lost hope in a brighter future with 46 percent saying the next generation will be “worse off” and only 25 percent saying it will be “better off.”

Similarly, 37 percent of respondents in the survey believed America’s best days were “behind us" and just 31 percent showed faith that the best was “still to come”.
