Democrats cheated in nuclear proportions in 2020. But they will need to drop multiple warheads if they expect to win in the midterms.
At this point, voters don’t even want to admit supporting Biden in any way, fashion or form. Here are three Rasmussen polls, all in different areas.
First up: Republicans versus Democrats in Congress. Below is what Rasmussen reports:
The 2020 midterm elections are now 123 days away, and Republicans have an eight-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 40% would vote for the Democrat. Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another eight percent (8%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
How about consumer confidence. That’s a good indicator of how people think about the administration based on its confidence in the economy. As the saying goes, “It’s the economy stupid!”.
According to Rasmussen, things aren’t looking too good for Biden in the area of consumer confidence:
Economic confidence increased to 78.6 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, nearly 10 points lower than June. The index is now at its lowest point since it began in 2014.
Enthusiasm about the economy surged under former President Donald Trump, reaching as high as 147.8 in January 2020 before tumbling after the coronavirus lockdown threw Americans out of work and closed many businesses. By November 2020, it had recovered to 126.4, but dropped sharply after President Joe Biden was elected. The index fell to 97.8 in February 2021 before beginning a three-month rebound that took the index to 123.7 in May 2021.
Finally, there is the measure of direction of the country. Few people will argue in favor of Biden in this category.
In fact, we know how few, based on this poll from Rasmussen.
Eighteen percent (18%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending June 30, 2022.
This week’s finding drops six points from a week ago, and is a record low.
Three key performance indicators, and three strikes for Biden.
But there is another strike as reported by The New York Times:
Biden is facing an alarming level of doubt from inside his own party, with 64 percent of Democratic voters saying they would prefer a new standard-bearer in the 2024 presidential campaign, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll, as voters nationwide have soured on his leadership, giving him a meager 33 percent job-approval rating.
64 percent of Democrats don’t want the guy who supposedly got 81 million votes? I’m not buying it.
The Times continues,
Widespread concerns about the economy and inflation have helped turn the national mood decidedly dark, both on Mr. Biden and the trajectory of the nation. More than three-quarters of registered voters see the United States moving in the wrong direction, a pervasive sense of pessimism that spans every corner of the country, every age range and racial group, cities, suburbs and rural areas, as well as both political parties. Only 13 percent of American voters said the nation was on the right track — the lowest point in Times polling since the depths of the financial crisis more than a decade ago.
Understand that Rasmussen reported 16 percent. Now we get another poll that shows that only 13 percent of the people believe the country is on the right track. Of course the sane among us wonder what lunatics represent the 13 percent of Americans who see the country on the right track.
But the news gets worse, as we get reports of Democrat abandonment.
For Mr. Biden, that bleak national outlook has pushed his job approval rating to a perilously low point. Republican opposition is predictably overwhelming, but more than two-thirds of independents also now disapprove of the president’s performance, and nearly half disapprove strongly. Among fellow Democrats his approval rating stands at 70 percent, a relatively low figure for a president, especially heading into the 2022 midterms when Mr. Biden needs to rally Democrats to the polls to maintain control of Congress.
In a sign of deep vulnerability and of unease among what is supposed to be his political base, only 26 percent of Democratic voters said the party should renominate him in 2024.
As I examine these polls, I’m reminded of Biden’s poll numbers once he was the only Democrat candidate in the 2020 campaign.
I recall that Biden didn’t get more than 82 percent in any state, and this with no opponent. In Georgia, I believe Biden only got 57 percent of the vote, though he ran unopposed. So none of these polls tell America anything new.
Conservatives knew that Biden would be a train wreck. That is why I said that America would never elect a braindead moron like Biden as president, and I stand by this. The only way Biden could be elected as president of the United States is through massive cheating.
