Joe Biden and the Democrat Party are again dealing with a disastrous poll on their handling of several key issues facing the country.
The poll, conducted by NBC News and ABC News, was highlighted by NBC News host Chuck Todd on Sunday, who called it “scary” for Democrats.
The poll found that Biden’s approval rating is at 42%, which is 12 points in the negative.
Additionally, the poll revealed that 42% of Americans “strongly disapprove” of the job that Biden is doing.
Below are some other key findings from the NBC News report:
- “What’s more, the survey finds that 7 in 10 adults, including almost half of Democrats, believe the nation is headed in the wrong direction, as well as nearly 60 percent who view Biden’s stewardship of the economy negatively just nine months into his presidency.”
- “… the GOP enjoys a significant enthusiasm advantage at this point in the election cycle, with 69 percent of Republicans expressing a high level of interest about the midterms (on a 1-to-10 scale), versus 58 percent of Democrats who hold the same level of interest.”
- “When asked which party better handles particular issues, Republicans hold double-digit advantages on border security (by 27 points), inflation (24 points), crime (22 points), national security (21 points), the economy (18 points) and being effective and getting things done (13 points).”
During a segment on his show, Todd highlighted the poll and how bad it is for Democrats heading into the crucial 2022 midterm elections.
“We have a brand new NBC News poll out this morning still with some scary news for the Democrats. The overarching message is that Americans have lost their optimism for the country,” Todd said.
“At least they have right now. Just 22% of adults say we’re headed in the right direction. A shocking 71% say we’re on the wrong track and that includes a near majority of Democrats who are saying that. President Biden’s approval rating stands at a dismal 4% versus 54% who disapprove,” he added.
“Two months ago President Biden was in positive territory. What’s pulling down the president’s numbers? Look at this set of numbers, just 37% say he has the ability to handle a crisis versus a majority who say he does not. 37% also say he’s competent and effective as president. 50% disagree with that description. What’s more, Republicans, believe it or not, have double-digit leads in dealing with border security, inflation,” Todd continued.
According to a Morning Consult/Politico poll, 16% of Democrats think that the results of the 2020 presidential election should be overturned.
Overall, the October poll found that 35 percent of voters polled agreed that President Donald Trump was the rightful winner of the November election.
60 percent of Republicans surveyed indicated that the election results should definitely or probably be overturned, compared to a much smaller 30 percent that said that they should probably not or definitely not be overturned. 10 percent of respondents were undecided.
16 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of independents said that the election results should be overturned.
More than 94 percent of Democrats supported Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2020. According to Morning Consult/Politico, 83 percent of Democrats support Biden nearly one year after last year’s presidential election, a sharp decrease in support.
Biden’s averaged approval ratings have dropped a stunning eleven points over his first year in office.
No president in modern history has been that abysmal.
A recent poll from the Trafalgar Group reveals that Biden’s approval rating has dropped below 40 percent, which is a new low.
The poll shows Biden’s approval hovers at 39.2 percent, compared to the president’s disapproval spiking to 58.4 percent, with more than 54.8 percent of the respondents saying they “strongly disapprove” of him.
Looking at the approval rating by party, just 32.2 percent of the independent respondents said they approve of the president, along with only 11.1 percent of Republicans.
Biden’s job approval has been trending downward for weeks, due in part to his mishandling of several issues.
Biden is also underwater with Hispanics in Texas, according to the eye-opening results of a recent survey released earlier this month.
