President Joe Biden has seen his approval ratings collapse since taking office, and a new poll suggests that things are only getting worse.
According to Breitbart, a survey conducted between March 7 and March 15 by Arizona Public Opinion Pulse and OH Predictive Insights found that the president is “underwater on virtually every major issue” among Arizona voters.
Voters lack confidence in Biden’s handling of COVID and the economy
It found that only 40 percent of voters in the state approve of Biden’s job performance compared with 55 percent who express disapproval, giving him a negative net approval rating of 15 points.
Those results stand in sharp contrast to May of last year when the president enjoyed a positive net approval rating in Arizona of 10 points.
The sharpest declines can be seen in how voters perceive Biden’s handling of the economy and COVID. When it comes to the former, Biden went from having a positive net rating of 11 points to a negative net rating of 22 points.
The numbers regarding COVID are stark as well, with the president falling from a positive net rating of 32 points to a negative rating of 2 points.
On foreign policy, Biden went from having a negative net rating of one point to a negative net rating of 13. What’s more, those figures were gathered before the president committed a series of high-profile gaffes during his trip to Europe last week.
This included an incident in which Biden appeared to tell American troops stationed in Poland that they would soon be heading to Ukraine.
Pollsters say Democrats should be worried about November
While giving another speech in Poland, the president seemed to suggest that America will attempt to oust Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Fox News quoted him as saying, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”
Mike Noble serves as chief of research for OH Predictive Insights, and he said in a statement that the poll results don’t just signal bad news for Biden.
“The survey shows potential warning signs for Arizona Democrats as they gear up for this November’s midterm elections following Biden’s narrow 2020 victory in the state,” Nobel explained in a statement.
“Biden’s record-low approval ratings are encouraging to Arizona Republicans as they look to notch victories in several key races,” he continued, adding, “Majority disapproval of the President always trickles down ticket as the entire party suffers residual damages.”
