Biden’s low approval rating of 36% on Monday’s Civiqs poll, done of a sampled 179,724 respondents from January 20 to March 20, clearly demonstrates the dire circumstances faced by Democrats this fall in the ballot-down battleground states. This poll shows a minimum of a 22 -point loss with Georgia a 26-point loss over just a few short months.
The impact on these races is likely to be significant.
Do you think Biden cares? Not really, it would appear, as he wanders around seemingly oblivious to the impact he is having on the world stage, the US, and his own party.
Like Nero who played his fiddle while Rome burned, similarly while Ukraine burns, US borders are basically open, gas prices soar and his own party’s approval ratings follow his poor results – Biden takes a bike ride. The world sees it, the nation sees it and now his party is going to really feel it at the polls this fall.
This latest poll has independents with a shocking 24 percent approval of Biden versus a 66 percent disapproval. As these voters seemingly drag his polling numbers into the depths of no return, Biden still is forging ahead with his abstract / hard to follow thinking and confusing statements that the White House staff continues to clean up.
Effectively, while Biden sleeps on, Republicans hope to defeat Democrats in November counting on his lack of support among independents in the battleground states. Here are some possible examples in Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and Michigan.
Currently, Georgias’ races are polling poorly for the president. Biden’s ratings have tanked at only 32 percent of Georgians approving of Biden with 58 percent disapproving. This poor showing in the polls in Georgia may greatly impact the races for governor as well as the senate.
Radical Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams will likely be feeling the impact in her race against Gov. Brian Kemp (R) or former Senator David Purdue and Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) will also be feeling these poor numbers in his race against Republican challenger Herschel Walker.
In Arizona, where Trump lost by a narrow margin, Biden’s approval rating is only 35 percent, with 55 percent in disapproval of his presidency. These poor polling numbers are sure to affect Sen. Mark Kelly’s (D-AZ) reelection bid against likely challenger, Republican Blake Masters.
Nevada polls only 35 percent approval of Biden, while a strong 58 percent disapproved. This provides Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) with a tough challenge in defending her seat against likely challenger Republican Adam Laxalt, who is supported by Trump.
Lastly, Biden’s ratings in Michigan are also terrible with only 35 percent approval versus 57 disapproval. The key gubernatorial race of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) will also be a struggle as she defends herself against many Republican challengers. The frontrunner James Craig is among them.
So, like a cartoon that has the supporting characters dodging bullets while the main character walks about in zombie fashion, unaware of the fall out around him, the fall races should wind up being a combination of entertaining and scary. There will likely be some real cliff-hangers to be seen. Hopefully, America will be watching closely.
