President Joe Biden supposedly received the most votes ever in a presidential election, but a new poll is not good for him at all.

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll, Biden has a 50 percent approval and 47 percent disapproval following his first month in office. T

By comparison, the same poll found that former President Donald Trump’s first-month approval rating was at 52 percent.

According to the Washington Examiner, during Trump’s presidency, 44 percent of similar poll respondents believed the country was heading in the right direction while 50 percent believed the opposite.

Under Biden, though, just 37 percent of respondents believe the country is heading the right way while a whopping 57 percent believe the country is heading the wrong way.

“Thirty-four percent (34%) of voters strongly approved of Biden’s job performance in February, while 39% strongly disapproved,” Rasmussen found, according to the Examiner.

“This gives him his first full-month Presidential Approval Index rating of -5. When Trump first took office in January 2017, he earned a full-month Approval Index rating of -4 after his first full month. During his final full month in office, his Approval Index rating was -8.”

Rasmussen also reported:

As part of the overall rating of a president, Rasmussen also compiles an approval index, the difference between strong approvals and strong disapprovals. In his first month, Biden scored a minus-five, slightly worse than Trump in his first full month at a minus-four.

Here’s how Rasmussen explained it: “Thirty-four percent (34%) of voters strongly approved of Biden’s job performance in February, while 39% strongly disapproved.

This gives him his first full-month Presidential Approval Index rating of -5. When Trump first took office in January 2017, he earned a full-month Approval Index rating of -4 after his first full month. During his final full month in office, his Approval Index rating was -8.”

“Rasmussen, sometimes under fire because Trump often cited their results while president, made a point to note that unlike most media surveys that typically favor Biden, it uses a model nearly identical to the partisan breakdown in 2020 election exit polls,” the report added.

“The New York Times and CNN 2020 exit polls indicated the vote was composed of Democrats 37%, Republicans 36% and independents 27%. Rasmussen’s model of 10,000 likely voters was weighted 38% Democrats, 36% Republican and 27% independents,” the report stated.
