It’s Poll Time again!
The latest national NBC News poll is out and it shows the vast majority of Americans do NOT like their President’s policy in the Israeli-Hamas conflict….
There are NO American troops in this and Biden STILL is getting a beat down…..
Images of the despair and destruction played daily in the media has had an effect on Americans , who barely remember the violence against the Israeli’s on Oct. 7….(Biden has persuaded the Israeli’s to halt the bombing for some hostage releases)
A conflict in the Ukraine that has dragged on for two years with sometimes weekly announcements of taxpayer money going there is NOT invisible….
Added to Biden’s troubles ARE an America economy that ‘experts’ may say is ok, but American’s do NOT agree due to inflated consumer prices….
Biden & Co. ARE well aware of these poll numbers….
Democrats have continually complained about them….
Joe Biden maybe pretty damn good in navigating American Foreign Affairs in the long run…
But right now?
He’s got a festering problem at home…
And the people back home decide if he keeps his job for a second term….
These are polls a year out from election day….
President Joe Biden’s approval rating has declined to the lowest level of his presidency — 40% — as strong majorities of all voters disapprove of his handling of foreign policy and the Israel-Hamas war, according to the latest national NBC News poll.
What’s more, the poll finds Biden behind former President Donald Trump for the first time in a hypothetical general-election matchup, although the deficit is well within the poll’s margin of error for a contest that’s still more than 11 months away.
The erosion for Biden is most pronounced among Democrats, a majority of whom believe Israel has gone too far in its military action in Gaza, and among voters ages 18 to 34, with a whopping 70% of them disapproving of Biden’s handling of the war.
“I do not support his support of Israel,” said Meg Furey, 40, a Democrat from Austin, Texas.
“Failed promises, student loans, foreign policy in general,” said Democrat Zico Schell, 23, of San Diego, when asked why he disapproves of Biden’s job performance.
“Joe Biden is at a uniquely low point in his presidency, and a significant part of this, especially within the Biden coalition, is due to how Americans are viewing his foreign policy actions,” said Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies.
McInturff said he can’t recall another time when foreign affairs not involving U.S. troops transformed the American political landscape.
“This poll is a stunner, and it’s stunning because of the impact the Israel-Hamas war is having on Biden,” he said.
But Horwitt cautioned that Biden can bring these disaffected Democrats and younger voters back into the fold. “These are people who have a proven track record in voting for Biden and Democrats,” he said.
And, he added, there’s plenty of time — and more potential political surprises to come — between now and Election Day 2024, which could see the political landscape transform again.
“Jury verdicts in Trump’s trials, unforeseen events both foreign and domestic, and the rigors of a campaign all have a funny way of upending what may be true today,” Horwitt said.
According to the poll, 40% of registered voters approve of Biden’s job performance, while 57% disapprove, representing Biden’s all-time low in approval (and all-time high in disapproval) in the poll since becoming president….
