President Biden’s approval rating craters to disastrous new low in latest national poll

Reported by CARLOS GARCIA | January 12, 2022


President Joe Biden’s approval rating among Americans polled in the newest Quinnipiac poll cratered to a new low as high inflation continued to hamper the economy. Only a third of Americans, or 33%, said that they approve of the job Biden is doing as president. Another 53% said they disapprove of the president.

“A rocky start for President Biden gets him low grades on his year one report card,” said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst for Quinnipiac University.

Americans were also fearful that internal strife was continuing to damage the country.

When asked what was a greater threat to the United States, far more Americans said that political instability was a greater threat than those posed by other countries, 76% to 19%, respectively. Among those, a greater percentage of Democrats said instability was a danger, while a smaller percentage of Republicans said the same, 83% to 66% respectively.

“A fear of the enemy within, not a foreign threat, punctuates a grim assessment by Americans of a democracy in peril and a future of deepening political divisions,” added Malloy.

The poll also found that a majority of Americans, 61%, support the investigation into the rioting at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, while only 33% oppose it. While a slim majority of Americans said that the Jan. 6 attack should not be forgotten, the percentage that said so had fallen from 57% in Aug. 2021, to only 50% currently.

Democrats are fearful that Biden’s unpopularity will worsen their prospects for holding onto power in the U.S. Congress in the midterm elections. While some have defended him by claiming that the media has been unfair to him, others have accused Biden of not supporting far left causes enough.

On Tuesday, critics of the president pounced on the news that Stacey Abrams had skipped Biden’s important speech in Georgia about the importance of passing a Democrat-backed bill bolstering voter access. Abrams said it was simply a scheduling mistake, but even mainstream journalists opined that Biden’s unpopularity was more likely the reason for the snub.

Compared To 4 Years Ago Against Hillary Clinton – President Trump In Swing States Is Actually Ahead Against Biden

Reported By Adam Casalino | October 19, 2020

Compared To 4 Years Ago Against Hillary Clinton – President Trump In Swing States Is Actually Ahead Against Biden

If you believe the national polls, you’d think that Trump has no chance against Joe Biden. This, despite the fact that Trump has delivered for four years—while Biden hides in his basement.

But let’s not forget that the media was predicting essentially a landslide victory for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And people who are actually tracking the numbers are showing that Trump is actually doing better than he was four years ago in swing states:

Tracking information from RCP reveals that, despite the liberal bias, Trump is actually polling better against Biden than he did against Clinton. He’s +0.8% ahead.

In swing states, Biden’s lead is actually smaller than Clinton’s. Clinton went on to lose many key swing states, giving Trump a solid victory.

Does this suggest Trump will win by larger margins this election?

The Trafalgar Group, who was just about the only polling group who got 2016 election right (even the electoral vote) is giving Trump another victory:

This is Cahaly’s breakdown: He believes Trump will win North Carolina and Florida and discounts Biden’s chances in Georgia because the Republican-base vote is too big there (the same is true in Texas)…

Overall, Cahaly sees another Trump win. “If it all happened right now,” he maintains, “my best guess would be an Electoral College victory in the high to 270s, low 280s.”

The Trafalgar Group appears to be addressing the many problems with MSM polling. They are going after people the other pollsters ignore. And they keep their questions short.

Evidence suggests conservatives don’t like answering polls and many people answer pollsters the way they think they want them to—so their answers are accurate with how they will vote.

Trafalgar is predicting a Trump win of 280.

Key Takeaways:

  • Swing state polls reveal that Trump is actually doing better than in 2016.
  • Trafalgar Group is one of few pollsters predicting a Trump victory.
  • They list many factors as to why modern polling is so inaccurate.

Hours Before Biden’s Big Convention Kicks Off – Poll Shows A Double-Digit Swing In Favor Of Trump

Reported By Ben Dutka | August 17, 2020

Hours Before Biden’s Big Convention Kicks Off – Poll Shows A Double-Digit Swing In Favor Of Trump

The Democratic National Convention kicks off this week and Joe Biden enters with a lead over President Donald Trump. According to most polls, Biden has the edge.

But now a new poll is out days after Biden’s VP pick of Kamala Harris and just in time for the big Democratic convention. And it’s shaking up the race, once again. This time, the poll is from CNN, but it’s not what most people expected. In fact, Democrats might be getting pretty nervous.

From Breitbart:

Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead has evaporated in the past two months, a new poll from CNN shows.

Biden leads President Donald Trump by just four points nationally — 50 percent to 46 percent — and by even less across 15 battleground states that will determine who wins the electoral college.

It’s important to remember that CNN’s national poll in early June showed Biden with a 14-point lead over the incumbent. Now it’s down to 4, which represents a double-digit swing in favor of Trump. Additionally, in those 15 battleground states, Biden is only leading by a single percentage point: 49% – 48%. This could mean that voting in key states will come down to the wire.

According to CNN’s polling director Jennifer Agiesta, the new poll marks significant changes in demographics: 

For example, those between the ages of 35 and 64 now “tilt toward Trump,” but they were leaning toward Biden in June.

On top of which, there has been a big shift among Independent voters — in June, Biden held a 52-41% lead, but now Independents are almost split (46% for Biden, 45% for Trump).

Lastly, the poll was conducted between August 12 and August 15, almost immediately after Biden announced Harris as his running mate.

That’s why it seems Harris isn’t helping Biden out of the gate; Agiesta noted that Americans have a “narrowly positive” view of Harris, but that’s apparently not doing Joe any favors right now. 

It’s likely we’ll see more shifts in the polls as the Conventions roll on, of course. It’ll be interesting to see where the two candidates stand after both Democrats and Republicans hold their events…

Key Takeaways:

  • Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden still has a lead over Donald Trump. But it has narrowed significantly.

  • According to a recent CNN poll, the latest survey shows a double-digit swing — Biden’s 14-point lead is down to only 4.

  • The poll was conducted after Biden named Kamala Harris as his running mate. So for now, it seems Harris is having a negative impact on Biden’s popularity.

DEAR CNN: On This Day, In 1980, ‘POLLS’ Said THIS About Carter & Reagan

If you believe the Polls, the Election is over, and we need to get ready for another President Clinton. What does History tell us? Could there be a ‘November Surprise’? Two weeks to go before Election Day, and Polls are saying that Hillary will win the Presidency.

Back in 1980, on October 26, the Polls said that Carter would defeat Reagan.


Polls can be skewed by selecting an unreasonable sample size, by asking lead up questions or by selecting more of a sample population on one side of an issue to achieve a desired result

A good example of the media trying to shape a vote occurred 36 years ago today.

In a Gallup poll released on October 26th in 1980, two weeks before the election, Jimmy Carter was leading Ronald Reagan 47 – 39.

Nah, that never happens.

Poll: Majority See Obama as Divisive Failure


Anger? Rage? Disgust? Disappointment? Hard to read this expression. Like his 2008 and 2012 speeches left it up to the listener what “Hope”, “Change”, etc., meant, so does this expression.

9 Sep 2014, 5:20 AM PDT

Imperial President ObamaA new ABC News poll has nothing but heartache for Democrats and President Obama. By a wide margin of 52-42%, voters see President Obama as a failed president. Americans also see Obama as more of a divider than uniter. Only 38% believe President Obama is uniting the country. A majority of 55% believe he’s dividing the country.

On this question, Obama polls worse than President Bush did at this point in his second term. While the same number, 55%, saw Bush as a divider, 43% saw him as a uniter.

On the issue of immigration, voters are moving against amnesty. Last year 51% supported amnesty compared to 43% who opposed. Today that number has flipped with 50% in opposition and only 46% in favor. Twenty-seven percent of voters are more likely to vote for a candidate in favor of amnesty, 36% are less likely.

On the question of Obama’s handling of immigration, only 31% approve, while a whopping 59% disapprove.

Executive ordersObama’s job approval has sunk in this particular poll to 42% approve, 51% disapprove. Three months ago, the president sat at 46-51%. On his handling of specific issues — the economy, foreign policy, implementation of ObamaCare — the president is underwater on all three by large margins: 42-54%, 38-56%, and 38-56%, respectively. Only 43% see him as a strong leader, while a whopping 55% disagree.

On the all-important generic ballot pertaining to the midterm elections that are less than 60 days away, registered voters prefer Democrats 46-44%. Context is important here. Democrats almost always enjoy an advantage on this poll. In the last poll taken before the Republican midterm sweep of 2010, Democrats enjoyed an even better advantage of 49-44%. On this particular poll, the GOP is actually in better shape today than they were before that historic wave.

When asked to choose which party would do a better job of handling the country’s problems over the next few years, for this first time in almost a decade, the GOP outpolled Democrats, 40-39%. 

Voters now favor the GOP to handle immigration by 39-43% . Just five months ago, Democrats were ahead on immigration by a margin of 40-34%. That’s a 10-point flip in just a few months.You Can Vote it OutArticle collective closing

President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.

According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.72 percent

Mormons were the least approving religious group, with 18 percent of Mormons approving and 78 percent disapproving of the president. Mormons in the past have ranked as the most conservative major religious group in the U.S.

The survey underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval — Obama is more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians.

Those who classify as “Other non-Christian” gave the president a 59 percent approval rating, while Jewish Americans gave Obama a 55 percent approval rating and atheists or those who subscribe to no religion have a 54 percent approval rating.

(Also on POLITICO: Obama on impeachment: ‘Really?’)

Catholics, on the other hand, have only a 44 percent approval rating of Obama, compared with 51 percent disapproval. Protestants and other Christians are more critical, with 37 percent approving and 58 percent disapproving.

Friday’s findings are in line with Gallup results on religious groups’ approval ratings of Obama since the beginning of his presidency — the relative rank of the groups have not changed in the six years Obama has been in office. The president’s approval rating in every group for the past six months has dropped 5-7 points from the average of his entire presidency.

(Also on POLITICO: House GOP cash woes prompt dues crackdown)

Gallup reported that Obama’s overall approval rating for the past six months is 43 percent.

The survey was conducted January-June 2014 with a random sample of 88,801 adults from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The margin for error for the entire sample is plus-or-minus one point — though that number is higher for some of the individual religion samples.
