Quinnipiac Poll Delivers Bad News For Biden: Approval Rating Sinks To 36 Percent
Apparently, his approval rating has now dropped to 36 percent. Do we have someone in office who could potentially see their approval ratings hit an all-time low, as in hitting the twenties? That would be amazing.
Especially since it is Biden.
The numbers are so low that Democratic poll analyst Tim Malloy has already started to issue warnings to the Democratic Party ahead of the elections we have coming up in the 2022 midterms.
“An ominous double whammy for the Democrats with midterms less than a year out,” Malloy explained. “The Senate and the House will be up for grabs and voters want the GOP to win the jump ball.”
An 8-point edge that Republican had in the poll is outside of the established margin of error and 46 percent of adults that were polled stated that they want to see the Republicans regain control of the government.
Biden has similarly poor numbers on his approval rating. The president is negative-17 on his approval, as a majority disapprove. The partisan breakdown is not as noteworthy as a majority of independent voters disapprove of the job Biden has done, while less than one-third approve.
- Republicans – 94% disapprove, 4% approve.
- Democrats – 87% approve, 7% disapprove.
- Independents – 56% disapprove, 29% approve.
Biden is failing on the issues as well:
- Economy – 59% disapprove, 34% approve.
- Foreign policy – 55% disapprove, 33% approve.
- Coronavirus – 50% disapprove, 45% approve.
- Climate change – 48% disapprove, 41% approve.
Once upon a time, Biden considered himself the unifier in chief, but the response to this poll is saying the exact opposite. Many voters have come out and stated that the number one issue they are concerned about right now is political division.
- Division/Polarization: 11%.
- The economy: 10%.
- Immigration/Border security: 8%.
- Inflation/High cost of living: 8%.
And it seems that adults are also not big on the president’s personality traits either. The vast majority, 51 percent say he’s dishonest while another 57 percent don’t think he has good leadership skills.
“Is the Biden administration’s signature legislation enough to start righting the ship? $3 trillion to fortify the country’s infrastructure backbone and shore up the future of American families through social programs still gets hearty support from Americans,” Malloy weighed in on the poll’s results. “But from the character issues to the broad swath of national and international concerns, that ship continues to take on water.”
“Quinnipiac surveyed 1,378 U.S. adults Nov. 11-15, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points,” the report finished.
