Poll shows lowest support for Biden among Democrats since taking office

A new poll released by Civiqs shows that President Joe Biden’s popularity continues to nosedive, with just one thirst of registered voters saying that they have a favorable opinion of him.

However, Republicans and independent voters aren’t the only ones Biden is struggling with. In what may seem like a stab in the back, even some Democrats say they have lost patience with him. 

Lowest support

According to the survey, only 69% of Democratic voters say they approve of how Biden has handled his job as president. Meanwhile, 13% disapprove and another 18% indicated that they neither approve nor disapprove.

As Breitbart noted in a piece published on Tuesday, this represents the lowest approval figure that Biden has seen among members of his own party so far. The figure also stands in stark contrast to how his predecessor performed.

A similar poll conducted by Civiqs found that former President Donald Trump typically received a close to 90% approval rating from Republicans, with the number only dropping to 85% at its lowest point.

Losing critical support

The recent survey also found that Biden has lost a significant amount of support among demographic groups that have traditionally been seen as a key component of the Democratic Party’s base.

It showed that 45% of Hispanic voters have a negative view of his presidency compared with 41% who voice approval. That’s a far cry from January of 2021 when his approval rating with them stood at 64%.

What’s more, many African American voters also appear to have soured on Biden, with approval among that group declining from 85% to 59%.

Nor is that the president’s only source of bad news, as Breitbart pointed out that a McLaughlin and Associates poll from April had Biden trailing Trump by seven points in a hypothetical rematch.

Trump wins

Survey also had Trump beating Vice President Kamala Harris, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) by double digits.

For his part, Trump has yet to make a definitive statement regarding his plans for 2024. However, the former president has recently been holding campaign-style rallies across the country.
