Joe Biden’s radical policies since taking office are causing more voters to question what he is doing. There are political polls for almost any question people want to ask about the president’s performance and Biden is struggling to please the nation.
Part of what makes a presidential candidate appealing to any voter is how well they perceive the candidate will perform while in office. Biden has more images of him mumbling and stumbling in public while his policies have produced high inflation, a border crisis, and mishandling of foreign affairs.
Those performance results don’t appear to be endearing Biden to the American electorate. A new poll is showing Biden underwater with voters when it comes to their expectations of him getting the job done. The Reagan National Defense Survey shows Americans’ confidence in the president has hit its lowest point during his tenure.
From Fox News:
According to the survey, just 36% of American adults said they had either a “great deal” or “some” confidence in the presidency, while 17% said they had “a little,” and 47% said “not much at all.”
Biden’s inability to inspire the American people has been in a downward spiral. Biden’s favorability has dropped considerably since polling in Feb. 2021, the first look after his inauguration. His January numbers that year showed him at a high of 53%.
This follows a pattern following the first time the survey was taken during former President Donald Trump’s time in office in Nov. 2018. Trump delivered a 44% polling of “great deal” or “some” confidence in the presidency. Data showing people not having much confidence at all has been level since Trump’s term.
Trump has surged ahead of Biden in the view of voters. This latest survey showed Trump at a 47% favorable rating and 50% unfavorable rating. That’s a huge advantage over Biden who holds a 38% favorable view and a 59% unfavorable view.
Trump is also maintaining his stronghold over GOP candidates heading into the 2024 presidential election. The poll shows 63% of likely Republican voters said they wanted to see Trump as the party’s nominee. The rest of the field is picking up the crumbs with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 10%, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley at 8%, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy at 4% and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 1%. All other candidates couldn’t breech the 1% mark.
Trump’s sway with voters also showed with him besting Biden in a head-to-head matchup with Trump getting 42% support and Biden at 36%. Of those surveyed, 9% said they would support another candidate and 9% said they would not vote.
- Joe Biden is losing more ground against Trump in this latest survey.
- Voters don’t have confidence in Biden to take on another term.
- Trump has moved ahead of Biden and leads all GOP candidates.
