Recent polling provides not a single ray of light for Joe Biden or Democrats, despite efforts to show him strong in defending freedom in Ukraine. Eight hundred likely voters were quizzed by a poll conducted jointly by Susquehanna Polling & Research and The Federalist the last week of April and their responses revealed:
• 54 percent disapproved of the job Biden is doing as President while just 39 percent approved;
• On immigration, 52 percent disapproved of the job he is doing while just 34 percent approved;
• On how he is addressing high gas prices 56 percent disapproved while 38 percent disapproved;
• On how he is responding to inflation, 61 percent disapproved while 33 percent approved; and
• On how he is handling rising crime, 54 percent disapproved while 37 percent disapproved.
Biden’s continuing poor showing is affecting how those polled say they will vote in November, with 49 percent of them telling the pollsters they would vote Republican and just 39 percent voting Democrat.
The economy remains at or near the top of most voters’ concerns, according to the poll. When asked, “In comparison to six months ago, has the economy gotten better, gotten worse, or has it remained about the same?” two out of three (66 percent) said it has gotten worse while just 14 percent said things have gotten better. For the others, the economy remains about the same.
When it came to the Democrat/progressive agenda concerning transgender athletic competitions, 69 percent of those polled by Susquehanna responded that “it’s not fair to force female athletes to compete against male athletes.”
When quizzed about Elon Musk’s pending purchase of Twitter, three out of five supported him, while 28 percent didn’t (and 12 percent simply weren’t sure).
When asked about Florida’s new Parental Rights in Education law that prohibits teachers from indoctrinating their students in grades K-3 about “sexual orientation” or “gender identity,” 70 percent supported it while fewer than one in four (23 percent) opposed it.
Finally, when asked about how well the news media is covering the news — “Do you trust the corporate news media to tell the truth when covering the news stories, or do they misrepresent the facts to push a political agenda?” — nearly three out of four indicated a lack of trust. They responded that the media “misrepresent the facts to push a political agenda.”
These results are reflected and confirmed by other polling organizations. Reuters, for instance, just reported that “Biden’s approval rating is near the lowest level of his presidency … [that it] has been below 50% since August and last month sunk to 40%, the lowest level of his 15-month-old presidency.”
Even left-leaning FiveThirtyEight has bad news for Biden. It reported today that 52.3 percent of those polled disapprove of his job performance, compared to 42 percent who approve. And when that group asked whom voters wanted in Congress if an election were held today, 45.2 percent said Republicans while 42.8 percent said Democrats.
There has scarcely been a ray of light for Biden or Democrats as they continue to inflict their anti-American progressive agenda onto an increasingly unhappy and disgruntled American citizenry.
