Well, it just keeps getting worse for Uncle Joe as new presidential ratings and other polls have come out. Things also continue to look good for Donald Trump.
According to McLaughlin polling data, 59% of likely voters polled say the country is on the wrong track versus 38% who say it’s on the wrong track.
As for their presidential ratings for Biden, in August 54% approved, 45% disapproved now 47% approve, 52% disapprove in September.
By 11 points, 49%-38%, voters said the Afghan debacle made them think Biden is not competent enough to be president.
Now, on to good news for Donald Trump from McLaughlin & Associates, reported by Dick Morris.
When voters were asked if they agree or disagree that they used to dislike Trump’s aggressive confrontational style but see how weak Biden was in his Afghanistan handling, maybe Trump wasn’t so bad: 52% agreed with that statement.
56% agreed when they were asked if it takes a tough man to be president and when they see how weak Biden is, it makes them appreciate Trump’s toughness is needed.
The last statement was along the lines of, “Say what you will about Trump, we had lower inflation, less illegal immigration, gas prices were lower and lower crime until the murder of George Floyd.” 60% agreed to 40%.
Also, they found that Trump is the runaway favorite in a hypothetical GOP 2024 primary election with 59% of the vote. Mike Pence got 10% and DeSantis received 8%.
When likely Republican voters asked if they would vote for Trump in 2024 in the general election, 86% said yes.
These are huge numbers and spell trouble for Democrats in 2022 and 2024. Things are lining up for the return of Donald Trump, which I talk about here.
What do other presidential ratings say?
The Real Clear Politics presidential ratings has Joe at 45.4% approval and 49.5% disapproval. This is way down from 55.5% approval and 36.0% disapproval after the first week of his failed presidency.
FiveThirtyEight has Biden at 45.9% approval and 48.6% disapproval. This also has crashed from 53.0% approval and 36% disapproval during the first week of the installed presidency.
At Civiqs, he is at 42% approval and 50% disapproval among 100,000 people surveyed.
Breaking it down by party, 5% of Republicans approve, 84% of Democrats and where it really counts, only 30% of Independents approve of Mr. Joe.
According to a recent article by the New York Post citing a Qunnipiac poll, has Biden at 42% approval.
On foreign policy, 59% disapprove and 34% approve, a sharp decline from last month, when 42 percent approved and 44 percent disapproved.
When it comes to the economy, 52 % disapprove and 42% approve.
He is also underwater on the handling of the virus now with 48% approval and 49% disapproval.
None of this is surprising as inflation has risen 5.3% on an annual basis, Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan and 208,000 illegals were apprehended at the border in August, four times the amount of the same time last year.
I think the average American is waking up to the fact that Joe Biden is a failure and miss the good old days of Donald Trump, which I knew would just be a matter of time.
