Joe Biden's approval rating simply hasn't moved in six months

This, indeed, has been the story of the Biden presidency from a popularity standpoint. At every point at which I’ve checked in to see how Biden is doing from a historical perspective, nothing seems to shake his approval ratings.

Right now, Biden’s average approval rating rests at around 53%, no matter how you calculate said average. Over the course of Biden’s first six months in office, his approval rating has never risen above 55% or fallen below 51% in an average of polls. It was 53% in April and 54% in May.

To give you an idea of what a narrow lane Biden’s approval rating is in, you only need to look at history.

Prior to Biden, the average range for post-World War II presidents in their first six months in office was 14 points. Biden’s range is less than a third of that.
