A new poll from Yahoo News and YouGov has found that disapproval for Joe Biden has hit a new high and also that more Americans would now vote for Trump.
This is especially interesting when you consider that it’s a very real possibility that we could see a rematch between Biden and Trump in 2024.
More and more people are realizing that the country wouldn’t be in its current state if Trump was still president now.
Yahoo News reports:
Poll: Biden disapproval hits new high as more Americans say they would vote for Trump
As inflation keeps rising and recession fears loom, a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows that Joe Biden is currently in the worst shape of his presidency.
The survey of 1,541 U.S. adults, which was conducted from June 10-13, found that if another presidential election were held today, more registered voters say they would cast ballots for Donald Trump (44%) than for Biden (42%) — even though the House Jan. 6 committee has spent the last week linking Trump to what it called a “seditious conspiracy” to overturn the 2020 election and laying the groundwork for possible criminal prosecution.
Since Biden took office, no previous Yahoo News/YouGov poll has shown him trailing Trump (though Biden’s most recent leads have been within the margin of error, like this one is for Trump). One year ago, Biden led Trump by 9 percentage points. In 2020, Biden won the White House by more than 7 million votes.
Yet Biden’s job approval rating has been atrophying for much of the last year, and the new survey shows that it has never been weaker. A full 56% of Americans now disapprove of the president’s performance — the highest share to date — while just 39% approve. Three weeks ago, those numbers were 53% and 42%, respectively…
Among all Americans, Trump (43%) now has a higher personal favorability rating than Biden (40%) as well. Meanwhile, nearly two-thirds of independents (64%) have an unfavorable opinion of Biden, and just 28% say they would vote for him over Trump.
Joe Biden is a disaster as president.
"Since Biden took office, no previous Yahoo News/YouGov poll has shown him trailing Trump . . . One year ago, Biden led Trump by 9 percentage points."
Now, Trump leads 44-42. Within the margin of error. But still. https://t.co/BD0hWj3Vcc

Who knows if Biden will even run again?
