According to a recent New York Times poll, Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen below 40 percent, giving Donald Trump an advantage.
The public’s disapproval of President Joe Biden is reportedly hurting the Democratic Party, and the President has scored even lower in favorability than former President Donald Trump in some polls.
Three weeks remain until the midterm elections, and the race for the presidency in 2024 is already on the horizon. According to a survey conducted by the New York Times and Siena College and published by the Times on Monday, many people disapprove of Biden’s administration and how the President is handling the economy. Many of the people who were surveyed stated that they intended to vote Republican in November.
According to the Times, the results of the polls indicated that Biden had a net approval of only 39 percent and net disapproval of 58 percent. This is important as the Democrats look to maintain control of the House.
Only 18 percent of voters likely to cast ballots gave Biden his high approval, while 45 percent gave him their strong disapproval.
And it would appear that this is in favor of Republican candidates.
In a survey conducted by the Times, 45% of potential voters strongly disapproved of the job Mr. Biden was doing, and 90% pledged to support a Republican for Congress this fall. There are rising concerns for the Democratic Party due to the high disapproval ratings received by the current Democratic President.
According to the New York Times, the first midterm election of a presidency has been historically challenging for the party in power. Democrats are approaching this election “shackled with a president with a disapproval rating of 58 percent, including 63 percent of independent voters.
In the meanwhile, the survey conducted by the Times and Siena College also inquired about respondents’ opinions on Trump.
According to the survey, however, if Trump and Biden were to compete for the presidency in 2024, Trump would win by one percentage point, receiving 45 percent of the vote to Biden’s 44 percent, making Trump the clear favorite.
The study found that the general sentiment of American voters is quite pessimistic, and they disapprove not only of Joe Biden but also of the country’s overall course. Part of the disapproval mostly accounts for inflation, the deficit, the war in Ukraine, and more. The survey results indicated that only 24 percent of respondents believed that the United States was now on the “correct track.”
It has become clear that the nation is heading in the wrong direction. This conclusion has been confirmed by 64 percent of respondents, and voters are dissatisfied because the cost of living, driving, and eating, among other things, has increased due to serious economic concerns and an inflation crisis.
In the survey, respondents were asked what they believed to be the most critical problems confronting the country. Twenty-six percent of those polled replied “the economy,” and another 18 percent said “inflation or the cost of living.”
According to the statistics from the polls, every other significant topic, including immigration, abortion, firearms, foreign policy, education, racial issues, and political parties, scored in the single digits.
According to the Times, Today, the nation’s mood is considerably “Sour.”
