Biden Disapproval Reaches New High

A recent poll indicated that President Joe Biden’s disapproval rating reached near record highs. The survey result also came after a series of polls showed former President Donald Trump with a significant lead over his successor, including the same poll with a 5% margin and major gains among some demographic groups.

The latest New York Times/Siena poll showed the president with just 17% of voters saying that they “strongly approve” of Biden’s tenure. A total of 61% of Americans disapproved of Biden’s time in the White House, including 47% who “strongly disapprove.”

Other elements within the poll may spell bad news for Biden’s election campaign. Only about 25% of Americans believe that the country is on the right track.

Furthermore, when asked whether or not Biden’s policies have helped or harmed them, far more Americans said that they harmed them.

The public is also closer to Trump’s position on the border. Among voters, 50% agreed with restricting the ability of migrants to apply for asylum, while 43% said that they would be against such a plan.

Americans also overwhelmingly described the economy as either poor or fair. Only 26% of the public said that the economy was going “good” or “excellent.”

The same poll also showed Trump with a substantial lead in a head-to-head matchup with Biden. Trump led with 48%, compared to Biden’s 43%.

Within the responses were a number of results that could be bad news for the Biden campaign. Despite the fact that Biden won female voters by a large margin in 2020, he is about tied with the former president for the demographic.

Trump has also made major inroads with younger voters. He now leads Latino voters, who voted for Biden in 2020.

The former president has also almost closed the gap among non-White voters with no college education. Trump also holds a substantial lead among voters when asked about whether they were enthusiastic about him or Biden.

Overall, Trump now leads in most national and statewide polls. He has also won every matchup against former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) in the GOP presidential primary.
