Poll: President Biden and Democrats Are Losing Their Voting Base From 2020

President Joe Biden is losing among his most loyal supporters and it is not only going to affect his political health. A recent poll showed his support with black and Latino voters has experienced a sharp decline.

The survey, conducted by McLaughlin & Associates, shows that issues like inflation, immigration, and foreign policy are having an even more pernicious impact on Biden’s approval ratings and are also hurting the Democratic Party as a whole.

“Most distressing for Democrats is that Joe Biden’s ratings are eroding in his political base creating a path for Republicans to maximize their base, win the center and attract Democratic voters,” the report said (note: link opens a .pdf).

John McLaughlin told the Washington Examiner that Biden is losing big among those who voted for him in 2020. “Biden only gets 82% of his 2020 vote, only 84% among Democrats,” he explained. He continued:

“25% of Biden 2020 voters disapprove of his job and Biden’s disapproval is 27% among liberals, 19% among Democrats, 25% among African Americans, 40% among urban voters, 57% among women, 61% among suburban voters, 61% among Hispanics.”

The pollster ominously predicted that “[t]he 2020 Biden coalition is totally destroyed.”

The survey also revealed that 37% of blacks and 62% of Hispanics believed the United States is headed in the wrong direction.

This could be why Democrats have started focusing their messaging strategy on Roe v. Wade, according to McLaughlin, who speculated that they have to deflect from President Biden’s incompetence in office.

“Republicans are on offense in these elections. The base is motivated, and I really believe Republicans are going to beat the Democrats this year among Hispanics and gain a large chunk of black voters,” he said.

“That’s why the Democrats and their media allies are trying to do everything to distract from Biden’s failures on the economy, inflation, crime, national security, and the border. Democrat candidates aren’t even looking for Biden’s endorsement in Democrat primaries,” he continued.

This is not the first poll showing that Biden is quickly losing support among the Democrats’ most loyal voting blocs. The Wall Street Journal published a study in which researchers found that more black and Hispanic voters are willing to give a Republican candidate a chance in the upcoming congressional elections.

The survey also found Republicans making gains among minority groups. By 9 percentage points, Hispanic voters in the new poll said they would back a Republican candidate for Congress over a Democrat. The two parties had been tied among Hispanic voters in the Journal’s survey in November.

Democratic margins also eroded among Black voters, who favored a Democrat for Congress by 35 percentage points in the new survey, down from 56 points in November. Support for a Republican candidate rose to 27% among Black voters, up from 12% in November.

When the Supreme Court draft opinion suggesting that Roe v. Wade will be overturned was leaked to the public, Democrats and their comrades in the activist media pounced. They seized on the issue to try to convince the public to give them another chance in November. The strategy makes sense considering they previously did not have much of anything on which to run. Indeed, it isn’t only Biden’s performance that has been a complete disaster. Democrats in Congress have accomplished very little while controlling both chambers of Congress and at this point, there is no way they can hope to turn things around.

Abortion is currently the only issue Democrats have in their pocket. They are trying to make the best of it, but it is becoming increasingly clear that it will not be enough to salvage their political fate. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to recognize that Americans – even those who are pro-choice – are far more worried about their bank accounts than they are about being able to kill babies.

The Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling on Roe v. Wade by the end of June. At that time, the abortion debate will be ignited once again, but will likely fizzle out as America’s economic woes persist under this administration. Unless something extraordinary happens, the Democrats’ political fate is sealed. The question is: Will Republicans be wise enough to do what it takes to keep the support of those who are fleeing the Democratic Party?
