How unpopular is President Joe Biden? Less than a year into his presidency, Republicans have their largest early advantage in midterm voting preferences in almost forty years, the Daily Caller reported.
According to ABC News, Democrats are now trailing Republicans by 10 points in a generic congressional ballot. Just 41% approve of Biden, a new low, while 53% disapprove. A mere 35% of independents approve of Biden.
Biden approval still falling
Voters are wary of Biden’s agenda, with 59% saying they are fearful he will do too much to expand the size of government. Thirty-one percent say Biden hasn’t kept his campaign promises, and only 35% say Biden has accomplished anything significant.
The dismal results are not terribly surprising. Biden and his ghouls have dismissed the worst inflation in decades, a supply chain crisis, and a southern border crisis that Biden has actively fomented.
It’s almost as if Americans don’t like it when their president ignores their problems — and even tries to make them worse.
Sixty-two percent of Americans think Democrats are out of touch, while 58% feel the same way about Republicans.
While 70% of Americans say the economy is poor, the majority of Americans who feel this way favor Republicans by a 63%–28% margin.
A smaller group of voters who believe the economy is doing well are in a partisan cul-de-sac that favors Democrats. Shocking.
Independents shifting to GOP
As Democrats retreat into delusion, independents are shifting to the GOP. They now support Republicans by a margin of 50%—32%, a stark reversal since the 2018 midterms, when they voted for Democrats by a 12 point margin.
The poll, taken from Nov. 7 to Nov. 10, comes on the heels of brutal election losses for the Democrats in Virginia. The survey is also in keeping with other polls showing that the electorate is swinging to the Republican party and President Donald Trump, who according to recent polls would defeat Biden in a 2024 rematch, Boston Herald reported.
The ABC poll found that 55% disapprove of Biden’s job on the economy. That is six points more than Trump’s highest disapproval rating on the issue.
Biden is also unpopular in eight states where the closest Senate races are expected, with just 33% in approval. These states include Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — all swing states Bien ostensibly won last year.
