There is a lot of buyer’s remorse in America today. Joe Biden is the anti-Midas. Everything he touches turns to horse manure. He has had his favorability drop since assuming office, but his handling of Afghanistan has really sunk people’s opinion of him. In the latest Rasmussen poll it shows that if the election for president were held today, Trump would win 43-37. Six points is a significant lead over Biden, but the news gets even worse for Democrats.
The survey comes at a key point in Biden’s presidency. He is now under fire for bungling America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, increasing inflation, and spiraling crime.
Several other surveys out this week have shown his approval rating underwater, a place Trump floated for much of his presidency.
Today, Axios headlined, “Biden’s average approval rating drops below 50% for first time.” It cited poll trackers from FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics.
The site added, “This marks a precipitous decline from the FiveThirtyEight peak of 55.1% in March and the RCP peak of 55.7% in April.”

- Just 37 percent of voters say they would vote for Biden today;
- 13 percent of Democrats say they would vote for Trump today;
- Moderate voters support for Biden has plummeted 13 points, while Trump has gained;
- 11 percent of 18-39 year olds regret their 2020 vote;
- 14 percent of Black Americans regret their 2020 vote;
- 9 percent of Democrats regret their 2020 vote;
- 12 percent of Moderates regret their 2020 vote.
This is also bad news for Democrats. They will go into the 2022 midterm elections clinging to Joe Biden’s coattails. Of course, they could disavow allegiance to him, but the party will pay for that if they do. It’s a lose/lose situation and it could be especially damaging to Democratic Senators, who are already skating on thin ice.
Having 13% of Democrats who were polled saying they would vote for Trump if the election were held today would be a hard row to hoe. To make matters worse is inflation.
The biggest catalyst that moves the vote is pocketbook issues and as inflation eats away at people’s paychecks, they will naturally take it out on the party that controls both houses of Congress and the White House.
