Biden poll numberS worse than Trump
The latest Quinnipiac Poll has more bad news for President Biden and Democrats. The President’s favorable rating has hit an all-time low of 33 percent. That actually puts him lower than some recent polling on former President Trump.
This has been a consistent decline in poll numbers over the course of the past few months. This despite increased efforts by Democrats — and much of the media — to shore up Biden’s job performance numbers. Biden has taken on a more aggressive and more extreme approach in his frequent scripted public statements. Democrats and the left-leaning media has unleashed a massive hyperbolic – and seemingly desperate – fearmongering campaign suggesting that any Republican victories will bring about the end of the American democratic Republic.
Their proclaimed threat to America comes in the past and future. The two major issues are the Capitol Hill Riot and the efficacy of the next two elections – both of which have been exaggerated into an attempted coup that would inexplicably take place if Republicans were elected in a free and fair election. Whoa! Ponder that one for a moment. If Republicans get elected, it is a coup. Democrats argue that there is no such thing as vote fraud. It is a minor problem – UNLESS, of course, Republicans win.
Apparently, the Democrats’ issues are being trumped (no pun intended) by issues closer to home for the American people. Inflation is the big one. But right behind is the shortage of goods – the supply chain problem – crime, the Pandemic, open borders, and a range of foreign policy failures.
But I digress. Back to the poll numbers.
There is no good news for Biden. Among the critically important independent voters, Biden’s numbers have crashed. Disapproval among these important “swing voters,” Biden has 57 percent disapproval – and only a 25 percent approval rating. Even Democrat analysts and strategists have to see that as disastrous.
Biden has even lost support among Democrat voters. In November, Biden held an 87 percent approval rating among democrat voters. That has now dropped 12 points to 75 percent.
With less than 300 days to the Midterm Elections, there is little time to turn those numbers around. And even less time when you consider that the vast majority of voters will have made up their mind by Labor Day – informally the kickoff of the intense election season. Even the so-called “undecideds” will already have a serious lean in one direction by that time. That leaves only 235 days to convince the voters.
Dramatic events can swing the political pendulum – as the Great Recession did in 2008 — but those trajectory-changing events are rare. Even passing Biden’s Build Back Better legislation is not enough. And the news-consuming dog-and-pony-show that the Democrats call the Pelosi’s Select Committee’s “insurrection investigation” is not working.
In politics, one should not become too confident, but America is getting closer and closer to the inevitability of a Republic resurgence in 2022 – perhaps bigger than 2014.
So, there ‘tis.
