As Biden’s Approval Rating Plummets, Trump Wins in Rematch Per New Poll!
With the addlebrained Joe Biden’s approval rating plunging to an abysmal 37%, a new Wall Street Journal Poll finds that right now, in a one-on-one general election matchup, Trump beats Biden by 4 percentage points among registered voters surveyed across the country by 47 percent to 43 percent.
In worse news for Biden, the poll found that any third-party candidate thrown into the mix would only serve to seal the deal for Trump. When five third-party and independent candidates were included in the survey, Trump’s lead widened to 6 percentage points, with 37 percent to Biden’s 31 percent. Among these other candidates, which shared a total 17 percent of the vote, independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had nearly half of their combined support, at 8 percent.
The poll also suggested a general dissatisfaction among voters with Biden — only 23 percent of respondents said his policies had helped them personally, while 53 percent said they had been hurt by his policies. Only 37 percent approved of Biden’s job performance, while 61 percent expressed unfavorable views of the president. These are some of the worst numbers in history for a sitting president striving for reelection.
Biden has faced widespread questions about his age — he is 81, the oldest president in U.S. history — and repeated calls to step down after his first term.
The poll of 1,500 registered voters was conducted from Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 by cellphone, landline, and text-to-web. The margin of error was plus-or-minus 2.5 percentage points.
