Joe Biden’s already tumultuous week just got even worse.
A brand new Zogby poll reveals that only 36.4% of likely U.S. voters believe that Biden has done an “excellent” or “good job” as president.
“Voters can’t help but wonder why the Biden administration keeps sweeping these issues under the rug and declaring them transitory. Democratic leaders cannot even come to a consensus within their own ranks. Without the passage of the ‘Build Back Better Act,’ or a solid infrastructure bill, and the potential default of the U.S. debt on the horizon, is it any surprise Biden’s presidency is sinking like the Titanic? Biden’s failure to reach vaccination goals and his executive vaccine mandates have also not helped his cause,” Zogby reported.
Our latest polling shows President Biden with a 36% positive job performance rating (excellent-15% and good-21% combined), while his negative rating is 61% (fair-19% and poor-42% combined).
Biden is only receiving decent marks from his political base’s most ardent supporters: Democrats (68% positive/30% negative), Liberals (69% positive/30% negative), urban voters (52% positive/46% negative) and African Americans (56% positive/41% negative) were the only groups to give him a majority positive rating.
He is getting hammered by all age groups, including younger voters aged 18-29 (34% positive/63% negative), women (32% positive/65% negative), suburban voters (32% positive/65% negative), Hispanics (41% positive/59% negative), Independents (24% positive/71% negative), suburban women (29% positive/67% negative), and urban women (43% positive/53% negative).
Biden’s job approval has been trending downward for weeks, due in part to his perceived mishandling of several issues.Advertisement
Last week in a report titled, “This poll should terrify Democrats ahead of 2022,” CNN Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza discussed Biden’s precipitous fall in the polls:
It’s the rare poll that makes an entire party sit up and take notice. The new Iowa poll is one of those polls.
Just 31% of Iowans approved of how Joe Biden is handling his duties as president while a whopping 62% disapprove. Biden’s disapproval number is below the lowest ever measured by ace pollster J. Ann Selzer for former presidents Donald Trump (35%) and Barack Obama (36%).
Biden’s approval on pulling American troops out of Afghanistan stands at a meager 22%. Approval for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is now just 36% among Iowans.
“This is a bad poll for Joe Biden, and it’s playing out in everything that he touches right now,” Selzer told the Des Moines Register.
In addition, the president is taking hits for his perceived lack of mental capacity, according to a Fox News survey from this month. That survey found just 49 percent of respondents believe that Biden has the mental capacity to be president.
“While 49 percent said yes, 48 percent said no. When respondents were asked weeks before, between September 7-10, 49 percent said yes, and only 45 percent said no, handing Biden three more points of less confidence in his mental soundness on Sunday,” Breitbart News reported, citing the survey.
Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, the former White House physician who served three presidents, has increasingly raised questions about Biden’s mental fitness.
“I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now,” Jackson said during an interview in July, predicting that the president will likely have to be removed from office via the 25th Amendment.
Biden is also underwater with Hispanics in Texas, according to the eye-opening results of a recent survey released earlier this month.
A recently published survey by the Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas-Tyler found that among Hispanics, only 35 percent approve of Biden’s job performance compared to 54 percent who disapprove. And the figures are nearly identical when it comes to how Texas Hispanics feel about Biden’s virtual open-border policies.
Just 29 percent approve of his handling of the border situation, while 47 percent disapprove.
