President Joe Biden's first term passed the three-month point last week and will hit the 100th-day mark this week. We're now at the point where the Biden presidency is well underway, and the American public has a track record to judge him by.
Biden sports the steadiest approval rating on record for a president through nearly 100 days in office.
What makes Biden unique is that his approval rating at the beginning of his presidency was a very similar 53%.
In fact, if you were to average the polls on any given day, you'll see that Biden's approval rating has never gone higher than 55% or even reached as low as 52% during the more than three months he's been in office.
The median difference between the highest average approval rating a president had and lowest during their first 100 days in office has been 9. 5 points.
The president with the narrowest range before Biden, Lyndon Baines Johnson, had a range of 4 points between their lowest and highest average approval rating.
If you were to construct a confidence interval in which 95% of all of Biden's approval ratings would fall, it's been within about a point of his average.
Biden's had an average approval rating of 96% among Democrats over the first few months of his presidency.
