If Biden could read, it would behoove him to read the writing on the wall. A recent poll by 10 points in an ABC/WaPo poll. The poll shows President Trump leading the feeble Joe Biden 52-42. The margin of error is 3.5%. The survey was taken between September 15-20 of 1,006 U.S. adults, including 890 registered voters. With each new poll President Trump is gaining with 14 months to go before the election. Of course the ones who paid for the poll say that this is an outlier and not based on reality.
That turns out to be not true as NBC has also released a 1poll showing that Trump is tied with Biden at 46-46. The NBC News poll of 1000 registered voters (margin of error 3.1 percent) has the race tied at 46-46. But, that poll shows the same trend as the ABC/WaPo poll in that Biden has l0st support, whereas Trump picked up support. There is a very good reason for the shift in the numbers.
Biden has been an occupant in the White House for three years now and people are able to compare the Trump presidency against Biden’s caliphate. Biden has a major problem coming us inasmuch as voter’s attitude towards him, they would blame Biden and the Democrats for a government shut down. Their biggest asset is the same as it has been for over a decade, a RINO Speaker of the House who backs down on every liberal demand. Kevin McCarthy has to go along with the rest of the GOP leaders in the House.
President Joe Biden’s job approval rating is 19 points underwater, his ratings for handling the economy and immigration are at career lows. A record number of Americans say they’ve become worse off under his presidency, three-quarters say he’s too old for another term and Donald Trump is looking better in retrospect — all severe challenges for Biden in his reelection campaign ahead.
Forty-four percent of Americans in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’ve gotten worse off financially under Biden’s presidency, the most for any president in ABC/Post polls since 1986. Just 37% approve of his job performance, while 56% disapprove. Still fewer approve of Biden’s performance on the economy, 30%.
On handling immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border, Biden’s rating is even lower, with 23% approval. In terms of intensity of sentiment, 20% strongly approve of his work overall, while 45% strongly disapprove. And the 74% who say he’s too old for a second term is up 6 percentage points since May. Views that Trump is too old also are up, but to 50% in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates.
Such is down-on-Biden sentiment that if a government shutdown occurs at month’s end, 40% say they’d chiefly blame him and the Democrats in Congress, versus 33% who’d pin it on the Republicans in Congress — even given the GOP infighting behind the budget impasse.
Trump, for his part, has improved in retrospect. When he reluctantly left office in January 2021, 38% approved of his work as president, essentially the same as Biden’s rating now. But currently, looking back, 48% say they approve of Trump’s performance when he was in office — matching his peak as president. Essentially as many — 49% — now disapprove, down from 60% when he left the White House.
…Head-to-head in a hypothetical November 2024 matchup, Trump has 51% support while Biden has 42% — numerically up 3 points for Trump and down 2 points for Biden from an ABC/Post poll in February, shifts that are not statistically significant.
