Biden’s approval ratings plunge in important heartland battleground: poll



President Biden’s approval ratings in Iowa are taking a hit, with less than a third of residents in the traditional heartland swing state giving the president a thumbs up on the job he’s doing in the White House.

Biden’s approval rating stands at 31%, with disapproval at 62%, according to a Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa poll, which was released on Tuesday.

The last time Biden’s approval ratings were above water in Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll ing in Iowa was in March, early in his presidency, when he stood at 47%-44%.
