Nancy Pelosi sighed in disbelief when she saw these brand new poll numbers
Democrats and Republicans are gearing up for the 2022 midterm elections.
Both parties believed they have a path to victory in front of them.
But then Nancy Pelosi sighed in disbelief when she saw these brand new poll numbers.
The surest predictor of the midterm elections for the President’s party is the President’s job approval rating.
In 2018 Donald Trump’s job approval rating was 45 percent and Republicans got 45 percent of the vote.
Joe Biden started his presidency with decent poll numbers for this polarized era.
But as Spring turned to Summer and Joe Biden’s honeymoon faded, so did his poll numbers.
Americans took stock of the border crisis, the inflation crisis, and the jobs crisis and soured on Biden’s performance in office.
The evidence of that comes in the form of the latest Monmouth poll which shows Biden’s approval rating dropped eight points in a month to where fewer than 50 percent of Americans hold a favorable impression of Biden’s performance.
A national poll shows President Joe Biden’s approval rating has gone backwards since April, plummeting to below 50 percent for the first time since he took office with disillusioned Democrats leading the way down.
The numbers show Biden’s approval rating stands at 48 percent, compared with 54 percent just two months ago. Forty-three percent currently disapprove of the job he’s doing, compared with 41 percent in April.
“Biden’s rating is still in net positive territory, but it seems to have taken a dip with the growing uncertainty that his signature spending plans will be enacted,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, which conducted the poll.
Presidents don’t usually get more popular as time goes on before the midterms.
Biden’s job approval will likely hover in the high 40s or sink farther.
And that is bad news for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Democrats considering Republicans only need to flip five seats in the U.S. House to win back the majority.
