Joe Biden’s poll numbers are plummeting and other Democrats aren’t far behind.
Political analyst A.B. Stoddard is now sounding alarm bells for Democrats with regard to the midterm elections.
Stoddard used to be considered a conservative, but she is a never-Trumper who has drifted to the left over the last few years.
That makes this even better news for Republicans.
She writes at Real Clear Politics:
If Polls Are Right, Dems Are Doomed. If They’re Wrong, It’s Worse.
In less than three months, President Biden’s approval rating has tumbled from a remarkable position in a polarized nation to the lowest of all but two presidents since 1945. Democrats are panicked though refusing to course-correct, hoping the pandemic will retreat, the economy will rebound, and their agenda will pass through Congress and turn out to be popular down the line.
The standing of the party with voters, at this time, isn’t in doubt. It’s awful. Biden’s average job approval rating on July 20 was 52.4% in the RealClearPolitics average before tanking precipitously and taking the party’s fortunes with him as the delta variant surged and American troops withdrew from Afghanistan in a deadly and tragic exit.
RCP currently has him at 43.3%. His approval in Gallup has dropped 13 points since June, six points in this last month. The latest Quinnipiac University poll had Biden’s approval/disapproval at 38/53, down four points in three weeks…
Even if their polling was good, Democrats face fierce headwinds next year: historical trends that favor the party out of power in the midterms in a president’s first term, a fragile four-seat margin in the House and no margin in the Senate, all of which can easily erase their congressional majorities, and redistricting maps that favor the GOP.
In addition, the party is facing new liabilities in voter registration — it has lost registered voters in critical states in considerable numbers.
You may want to read the whole thing.
The point is that Democrats are headed for a political slaughter next fall.
Republicans are already expected to take the House but the Senate seems more in play all the time.
