Leger regularly surveys Americans on President Biden and Vice President Harris’ approval ratings.

  • 42% of Americans approve of the way Joe Biden is handling his job as president.
  • 38% of Americans approve of the way Kamala Harris is handling her job as vice president.


A web survey was conducted among 1,002 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.

The data was collected from October 14 to October 16, 2022.

For comparison purposes, a probability sample of 1,002 respondents would have a margin of error of ±3.1%, 19 times out of 20.

Using 2010 U.S. Census reference variables, the data was weighted according to gender, age, region, race/ethnicity, household size and education level in order to render a representative sample of the general population.
