Biden’s Approval Rating Falls Below 40% and He Suffers a Loss to Trump in New NY Times Poll

With the midterm elections just three weeks away and the 2024 presidential race on the horizon, President Joe Biden’s public disapproval appears to be hurting the Democratic Party, and the president has fared even worse than former President Donald Trump in some polls.

A New York Times/Siena College poll found many voters disapprove of Biden’s presidency and plan to vote Republican in November, the Times reported Monday.

The poll gave Biden a net approval of 39 percent and a net disapproval of 58 percent, according to the Times.

Just 18 percent of likely voters strongly agreed with Biden, while almost half — 45 percent — oppose it.

And that apparently benefits the Republican candidates.

“The poll showed that 45 percent of likely voters strongly disapproved of Mr. Biden’s work, and 90 percent of those voters planned to endorse a Republican for Congress this fall,” the Times reported.

With such high levels of disapproval for a Democratic president, concern for the Democratic Party is growing.

“The first midterm election of a presidency has historically been a challenge to the party in power, and Democrats are approaching it with a president who has a 58 percent disapproval rating, including 63 percent of independent voters,” the Times noted.

Meanwhile, respondents in the Times/Siena College poll were also asked about Trump’s favor.

Would Trump defeat Biden in an election campaign?

According to the poll, Trump was 43 percent favorable and 52 percent unfavorable.

Of supporters, 23 percent described themselves as “very positive,” the Times reported. 44 percent of those with a negative opinion said it was “very unfavorable.”

But in a hypothetical presidential race between Biden and Trump in 2024, Trump was also preferred by a percentage point, 45 percent to 44 percent, according to the poll.

Overall, the New York Times/Siena College poll found that American voter sentiment is very negative, disapproving not just of Biden but of the overall direction the country is taking.

Just 24 percent of respondents said the U.S. is “on the right track,” poll data showed.

64 percent of respondents said the country is moving in the wrong direction.

With the economy struggling and an inflationary crisis driving up the cost of living, driving, eating out and more, voters aren’t happy.

The Times/Siena College poll asked respondents what the nation’s top issues are right now, with 26 percent saying “the economy” and another 18 percent saying “inflation or the cost of living.”

All other major issues such as immigration, abortion, guns, foreign policy, education, race issues, political parties and more were in the single digits according to poll data.

“Today the mood in the nation is downright bad,” the Times observed. Biden’s Approval Rating Falls Below 40% and He Suffers a Loss to Trump in New NY Times Poll
