Losing control of even one of the two chambers would signal paralysis in efforts to advance Mr. Biden’s agenda for the rest of his term. If, as is estimated, the Republicans win the majority in the House, they may also initiate various politically bloody investigations.

The US president took office amid the novel coronavirus pandemic and his term has been marked by the impact of the global health crisis on the US economy and skyrocketing inflation.

Mr. Biden’s approval rating remains below 50% as of August 2021 and this year has approached, though not reached, the popularity levels of his predecessor, Republican Donald Trump, who had slumped to 33% in December 2017.

The rolling national poll was conducted online, in the English language, among a representative sample of 1,003 adults, of whom 448 said they supported the Democrats and 383 supported the Republicans. The margin of statistical error is ±4%.
