Roughly 150 days into his presidency, President Biden's approval rating is 56 percent among voters, with 43 percent disapproving, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. That's an improvement from 54 percent in April and May polls from Fox News. Voters are especially pleased with Biden's pandemic response, the poll found, approving his handling of COVID-19 64 percent to 34 percent; his numbers were underwater on handling China, though, 39 percent to 54 percent.

What's "bonkers" about the poll, The Washington Post's David Weigel writes, is that Biden's numbers went up even with "voters agreeing with every Biden criticism. (Inflation! Taxes! Deficit!)"
