In the Nov. 16-18 poll, 45 percent of voters surveyed said they disapprove of how Biden is handling his job, down from 47 percent in an Oct. 20-23 poll.

Meanwhile, eleven percent of respondents to the most recent poll say they neither approve nor disapprove of Biden's performance, while 22 percent strongly approve and 35 percent strongly disapprove.

On key issues facing the country, Biden's job approval tends to be low.

Poll respondents largely disapprove of how Biden is handling the economy, with 45 percent strongly disapproving. This comes as inflation has hit its highest levels in 30 years and prices on gas and goods have soared. Only 39 percent said they approve of how Biden has handled the economy during the ongoing crisis.

Biden's highest approval is for his handling of the pandemic, at 47 percent. Biden has implemented tough measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus, including mandating that all companies with 100 or more employees vaccinate their workers or test them weekly.

On foreign affairs, Biden's approval rating is 44 percent as the U.S. manages crises across the world, from a civil war in Ethiopia to increased tensions with China. That's up from 35 percent in the last October poll.

Just 34 percent of voters polled approve of Biden's handling of immigration. His administration has grappled with a record surge of migrants at the border this year. His immigration approval is up two points from the last poll, which found it to be 32 percent.

Vice President Harris has a job approval rating of 40 percent, with 43 percent of poll respondents disapproving.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online in the U.S. among 2,787 registered voters. The sampling margin of error in this poll is plus or minus 1.85 percentage points. Results were weighted for a variety of factors, including age, gender, race and ethnicity, political party, education and region.
