Biden’s Approval Rating in Free Fall, New Poll Shows

Many Americans are infuriated with Joe Biden, and rightfully so.

Biden recently announced his administration is forcing private employees to receive the coronavirus vaccine via a shot in the arm.

This “new federal vaccine requirement” impacts as many as 100 million Americans.

Biden also insulted the American people by saying they’re stupid if they choose not to receive the vaccine.

“You’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were,” Biden said to those who were unvaccinated in July of 2021.

Following Biden’s disastrous handling of the U.S. troop withdrawal, the catastrophe at the southern border, and the surge in coronavirus cases, polls show how the American people feel about his job performance.

Biden’s approval rating has been in decline since May.

More Americans disapprove of Biden (49 percent) than at any other point in his presidency, according to a YouGov survey.

The survey was conducted between Sept. 4th through the 7th.

It also found that only 39 percent of American adults approve of his job performance. Just one week, this number dropped by six points.

YouGov explains, “Twice before, during the pullout from Afghanistan, as many people disapproved as approved, but this is the first time in his first-year presidency that Biden’s ratings are negative.”

“The drop in Biden’s approval rating is most severe among Democrats. Around nine in ten of them had approved of Biden’s performance for nearly all of his first year in office. This week, Biden’s approval rating among Democrats dropped nine points to 77% from 86% last week.”

A new poll conducted by Emerson College shows Donald Trump would defeat Joe Biden in a 2024 rematch.

Emerson College conducted the poll during and immediately after the final U.S. service members left Afghanistan. Trump is favored by 47% of respondents while only 46% chose Biden.

Biden’s overall approval rating dropped from 49% in February to 46%. Against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the Emerson Poll shows Biden is stronger with a 48% to 36% edge.

However, the poll indicates that Trump and Biden are the preferred candidates for their respective party in 2024. 67% of Republicans said they would vote for Trump in the GOP primary, the poll shows.

Director of Emerson College Polling, Spencer Kimball, said, “Historically, this data reminds me of 1912 when Teddy Roosevelt failed to win the Republican nomination from then-President Taft and created a third party dooming the Republican chances against Woodrow Wilson.”

Another recent survey found that 69 percent of polled Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S.’s military presence in Afghanistan.

NBC News and the Wall Street Journal show only 46% of Independents approve of Biden, which is down from 61% in April. In just over three months, Biden managed to nosedive by 15 percentage points.

A new poll finds the majority of likely voters do not think President Joe Biden will even finish his term.

A majority also say Vice President Kamala Harris is unfit to replace him. Rasmussen Reports explained, “Most voters believe it’s likely that President Joe Biden won’t finish out his term of office, and don’t think Vice President Kamala Harris is ready to step up to replace him.”

This trend is also being seen when Americans are asked how Biden is handling specific issues.

For the first time, a greater share of Americans disapprove (45%) of Biden’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic than approve (42%). This week, just 40% approve of the president’s handling of jobs and the economy, while 47% disapprove. In previous weeks, more usually have approved than have disapproved.

Only 16% of American adults now think the economy is improving, while nearly three times as many, 44%, say it is getting worse. Another 27% say the economy is about the same. At the beginning of the Biden presidency, just as great a share of Americans as today said the economy was worsening (44% in the Jan. 30-Feb. 2 poll), but that changed quickly. In May and for part of June, more people said the economy was improving than worsening. No longer. (YouGovAmerica)
