First lady Jill Biden’s approval has fallen to its lowest point since her husband President Joe Biden took office, according to a new poll.

The most recent CNN/SSRS poll, released Monday, showed the first lady’s favorability among U.S. adults dropped 24 points in one year.

The poll, which has tracked Jill Biden’s favorability each year since 2020, pegged her approval rating at 34% — down from 58% in 2021 and 46% in 2020. The percentage who hold an unfavorable view of her has held steady around 29%.

The new ratings follow the first lady’s apology for comments she made during an appearance in San Antonio in which she suggested that members of the Hispanic community are as unique as “breakfast tacos.”

The favorability ratings of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris also took a significant hit. The poll suggests Biden’s favorability dropped from 59% last year to a current 36%. Harris’s favorability dropped to 32% from 51%.

Likewise, the latest CNBC All-America Economic Survey, conducted earlier this month and released on Monday, showed Biden’s economic approval rating at 30%, marking a drop below the lowest levels experienced by former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama.
