A recent Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll of registered voters in the Peach State found that only about one third approved of how President Joe Biden is performing in his job, a noticeable drop compared to a poll conducted in 2021.

The survey — which has a 3.3% margin of error and was carried out Jan. 13-24 by the School of Public and International Affairs Survey Research Center at the University of Georgia — found that 12.9% strongly approved of how Biden is handling his role, 20.8% somewhat approved, 11.2% somewhat disapproved, and a whopping 50.3% strongly disapproved.

That marks a noticeable shift in sentiment against the president compared to a poll conducted April 20 through May 3, 2021, which found that around half of registered voters in the state approved of how the president was handling his job.

The recent poll also reveals a massive shift among a key demographic: Around 36% of black registered voters in the state disapproved of how Biden was handling his job in the recent poll as compared to the roughly 8% who felt that way in the poll conducted in 2021.

While Biden narrowly won Georgia during the 2020 presidential contest, the president’s sagging job approval rating in the Peach State indicates that he may not be an asset to Georgia Democrats during the 2022 midterm election cycle.

U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), who won a special election runoff in the state last year, is up for re-election this year.

And Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate who lost to Republican Brian Kemp during the state’s 2018 gubernatorial contest, has her sights set on the governorship once again.

In a hypothetical rematch, the recent poll found that 48.1% would back Gov. Kemp compared to just 40.8% who would back Abrams.

Former U.S. Sen. David Perdue is one of the people competing in the Republican gubernatorial primary, and in a hypothetical race against Abrams, he would lead with 47.1% vs. 43.2% for Abrams, but Perdue’s 3.9% advantage is considered a statistical tie, according to the survey.
