President Joe Biden became the first Democrat in over 20 years to win the state of Georgia in a presidential election.

However, just over a year into his time in office, voters in Georgia appear to have soured on the president.

According to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) poll released on Thursday, Biden’s approval rating has dropped to 34%, which is down from 51% in May.

Biden carried the state by 11,779 votes.

His approval rating is lower than Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-Ga.). Roughly forty-three percent of voters say they “strongly” or “somewhat” approve of Ossoff’s job performance, while 35% disapprove.

Additionally, about 44% of voters “strongly” or “somewhat” approve of Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D-Ga.) job performance, while about 35% disapprove.

About a third of Georgia voters say their financial situation is better than a year ago, while 42% say it is worse.

The AJC reported, “And a slight majority of Georgians say that the economic problems ‘are the result of government policies and won’t change until we change the political leadership.’ Roughly 36% of Georgians, on the other hand, blame the pandemic for the problems and are optimistic it will improve.”

As Axios notes, “Biden risks serving as a drag on his party in key Senate and gubernatorial contests.”

Do you think Biden will be a drag on the party in Georgia?

Warnock is running for reelection in November, and FiveThirtyEight ranks his race as a “toss-up.”

According to the poll, Republican Senate hopeful Herschel Walker is statistically tied with Warnock.

Additionally, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) is up for reelection and facing the prospect of a re-match against Stacey Abrams.

The AJC poll found Kemp leading Abrams in a hypothetical match-up. Meanwhile, the poll found that former Sen. David Perdue (R) and Abrams were statistically tied in a hypothetical match-up.

The poll was conducted Jan. 13-24 and surveyed 872 registered voters.
