Support For Joe Biden Among Women Drops In Light Of Tara Reade Allegations

Joe Biden is losing support among a key voting bloc for Democrats. Women.

The more women voters hear about the Tara Reade allegations against Joe Biden, the less they want to vote for him.

Is it any surprise that Democrats and the media keep trying to leave this story behind?

Siren Alert: Biden’s Support Among Women Drops as Tara Reade Allegations – and His Response – Take Their Toll

A funny* thing happens once the mainstream media is shamed into getting off their liberally-biased rumps in order to report on a legitimate national news story:

More people are finally alerted to the issue, and begin researching it to draw their own conclusions.

That has certainly been the case on the issue of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden.

Up until recently, polling data didn’t show any hit against Biden’s polling numbers after Reade told podcaster Katie Halper in late March about the alleged attack. After that, it took the New York Times almost 3 weeks to file their first report on Reade’s claim that Biden raped her in 1993…

Now that voters are hearing and reading more about the story, they are formulating opinions on the issue. So far, it looks like the Biden campaign’s strategy is backfiring.

This is the key finding from the Morning Consult poll:

A new Morning Consult poll found the former vice president’s net favorability — the share who view him favorably minus the share who view him unfavorably — has dropped 5 percentage points among registered voters since an April 20-26 poll conducted in the week before Biden forcefully denied Reade’s accusation on television amid heightened media coverage of the story. According to the new polling, conducted May 4-10 among 27,754 registered voters, 48 percent of voters view Biden unfavorably, compared with 43 percent who have positive views of the former vice president. Both polls had a 1-point margin of error.

The slide resulted in Biden’s net favorability among women falling underwater for the first time since the nadir of his primary campaign in February, with 46 percent viewing him unfavorably and 44 viewing him favorably. Taken together, it marks a 6-point drop in net favorability among women since the April 20-26 poll, driven by women ages 30 to 65 — the voting bloc that strategists on either side of the aisle credit with fueling Democratic victories in 2018 House races.

This is a nightmare for the Biden campaign.
