Democrats have been doing a slow slide down in the polls. Rather than actively supporting Biden for his accomplishments, they criticize him for what he has not yet landed. That is a very good way to lose the election, invite the former president back into the White House, and end democracy. Life under a dictator is no fun. But wait, there is hope in the latest polls.
The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) overturned Roe v. Wade and stole women’s right to control their own bodies. Under the United Nation’s (UN) definition, forced birthing is a war crime. Both American women and men did not like that.
The Monmouth University Poll showed what happened when the vote was not specific, just generic. Republicans led registered voters 48 percent to 46 percent, which was in the margin of error. This was a typical poll question:
‘If the elections for Congress were held today, would you vote for the Democratic or Republican Party?’
Five-Thirty-Eight averages recent polls and came out with nearly the same, with a one-point lead. But look at the difference in the Democrats’ move with 50 percent going to the Republicans and 43 percent to Democrats in May, which was a seven-point difference. Talk about significant.
President Biden has reached an all-time low. In fact, no other president has reached 38 percent “at this point in their first term was President Harry Truman in 1946,” according to CNN:
‘Biden, who is at the low point of his presidency, has an approval rating of 38% by comparison. The only president with such a low approval rating at this point in their first term was Harry Truman in 1946. Truman’s Democratic Party lost both the House and the Senate in the midterms.’
After SCOTUS killed Roe v. Wade with an uber-conservative vote, Democrats moved three points ahead.
Last week’s Pew Research Center Poll indicated that “57 percent of Americans disapproved of the decision:”
‘And while abortion is not the most important issue on voters’ minds, it’s clearly more important than it has been in any recent election. In May, Gallup found that 27% of Americans said they would only vote for a candidate who shared their views on abortion. This was higher than Gallup has measured in any midterm or presidential election year going back to at least 1992.’
The Gallup Poll was taken prior to the Supreme Court’s decision to “overturn Roe.” But Democratic voters still believed the economy was President Biden’s biggest fault. Of course, there has been little he could do. That has always been Congress’ problem to solve:
‘It would be tough for Democrats to hang on to such a small edge when the economy is such an important issue to voters, who see it as weak. (It’s a major reason why President Joe Biden‘s approval rating is so low.)’
But an analysis by CNN’s Harry Enten showed that Dems can keep the Senate. So what Americans need to do would be bring in two additional Senate seats and keep the current ones. That would take care of Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who frequently vote against their own president and with the Republicans.
That would be first. Second, Dems need to fight like hell to keep the House. Then, President Biden’s agenda would race the polls to the top.
