JOE Manchin is known as an American politician and businessman who is currently serving as the senior United States senator from West Virginia.
As his term is coming to a close, many are wondering what the people have said about his term, which started back in 2010.
What is Joe Manchin’s approval rating?
In September 2021, it was reported that Manchin, 74, suffered another decline in approval ratings after he rejected Joe Biden’s Infrastructure Bill that has been causing strain within the Democratic Party.
While it remains unclear what Manchin’s October approval rate is, it was reported in September that he has a 42 percent approval in West Virginia with a 37 percent disapproval rate.
The year prior, Manchin had a 44 percent approval rating with a 44 percent disapproval rating while 12 percent remained unsure, according to a WV MetroNews West Virginia Poll.
Is Joe Manchin up for reelection?

What did Joe Manchin say about the Infrastructure Bill?
In October 2021, Manchin was seen objecting the bill, stating that he “just can’t do it” when asked about the provision.
“To expand social programs when you have trust funds that aren’t solvent, they’re going insolvent. I can’t explain that. It doesn’t make sense to me,” Manchin said via CNN.
“I want to work with everyone as long as we can start paying for things. That’s all. I can’t put this burden on my grandchildren. I’ve got 10 grandchildren … I just can’t do it.”
At this time, it remains unclear if the bill will get passed as Democrats scramble to get his support.

As of 2021, Senator Joe Manchin has an estimated net worth of $5million, according to Ballotpedia.
He reportedly makes $174,000 annually from his job in the government.
When the Senator is not working, he can typically be found aboard his $250,000 boat with his wife Gayle Connelly Manchin, whom he has been married to since 1967.
