Biden Is Furious That He's Below Trump in Polls but It Just Got Even Worse

As we noted earlier, Joe Biden is in a quandary as to how to change his sliding numbers. He’s frustrated even that his numbers are worse than those of President Donald Trump. As NBC noted, “He’s now lower than Trump, and he’s really twisted about it,” another person close to the White House said. He also thinks Democrats aren’t defending him enough.


Biden is supposedly upset that his people are undercutting him, but his people respond, “We don’t say anything that the president doesn’t want us to say.” In other words, what Biden is saying now — or what NBC is spreading out there to try to make him look better — just doesn’t add up.

That’s the problem when it comes to Biden; that’s why the polls are continuing to crash: because no one believes that Joe Biden knows what he is doing and they believe all the issues that we are having to deal with can be laid right in the lap of his confusion.

It isn’t getting any better for him.

The Civiqs poll just hit the basement on Biden: 34 percent.

Back in December, the poll was bad at 37 percent and only five states had Joe Biden overwater in approval.


Now, only three states have him above water in approval, with just Hawaii at majority approval level. He’s underwater even in California at 42/46.

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air notes how the numbers have changed since April in those critical states for the midterms. Note, Biden has even slipped in Delaware, his home state.

Arizona: 32/59, was 35/57
Colorado: 36/52, was 40/51
Connecticut: 38/50, was 42/48
Delaware(!): 35/53, was 38/54
Georgia: 31/58, was 33/57
Minnesota: 39/52, was 41/50
Ohio: 29/61, was 31/60
Oregon: 41/47, was 41/48
Nevada: 33/58, was 35/57
Virginia: 34/55, was 37/53
Washington state: 42/48, was 44/47


He’s still seen favorably by black voters overwhelmingly (75/17) and barely by Hispanic voters (48/45), but that’s it. Majorities in every age demo see Biden unfavorably on a personal basis. So do college and non-college voters except for post-grads, who still rank him slightly unfavorably too (46/48). A plurality of women (44/49) see Biden unfavorably, a death knell for Democrats in the midterms and in 2024 if Biden runs again. And again, only five states give Biden a favorable ranking, one of which — New York — is only 47/46 on Biden personally.


No wonder he and other Democrats are throwing tantrums when they look at the numbers. That’s a message for disaster and I’m not even sure he’s hit the bottom yet. As Joe has shown us, he always seems to find a way to go lower. That’s why I think the prediction from Cook Political Report of a pick-up in the House of 20-35 seats is very conservative and I’m inclined to think it’s going to be much higher, given all these other numbers. It’s not a wave, but a tsunami coming.
