Joe Biden is doing such an awful job as president that he is now underwater in blue New Jersey, according to a new poll.
New Jersey has close to a million more Democrats than Republicans, so a Democrat has to work very hard to fall to such lows in the state.
This is another major warning for Democrats ahead of the next two major elections.
The New Jersey Globe reports:
Biden underwater in New Jersey, new Monmouth poll shows
President Joe Biden has upside-down job approval ratings in New Jersey, a state he won by sixteen percentage points in 2020, a new Monmouth University Poll shows.
The poll puts Biden’s job approvals at 45%-50% seven months before the mid-term elections, where one Democratic congressman is in trouble and up to three more incumbents face real challenges.
Biden is at 37%-54% among independents and Democrats give him job approvals of 79%-19%.
Republicans intensely disapprove of Biden (7%-92%), perhaps a signal that GOP voters might overperform in November, as they did in the closer-than-expected 2021 gubernatorial race in a state with more than a million more Democrats than Republicans.
“New Jersey is fundamentally a blue state,” said Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. “The fact that Biden is doing so poorly here suggests he has lost enthusiasm among core constituencies in his own base.”
This is seriously bad news for Biden and Democrats.

Joe Biden earned these numbers through a year of terrible policy decisions.
