Chart of the Day: Deep Dive into Biden Polling Data – Good News for the 2022 Midterms?

With the midterm elections a few months away, it is helpful to take stock of what the polling data shows where the current president (and his political party), Joe Biden, is sitting regarding approval ratings with the voters. The following shows various polling from several polling groups.

In the latest survey from Civiqs, Biden’s approval ratings have reached a new low. His approval rating is a mere 33%. Biden is nearly 23 points spread underwater relative to his disapproval numbers – a new low. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

Among the last 11 national polls aggregated by Real Clear Politics, President Joe Biden’s job approval has dipped into the 30s in seven of them. On average, Biden is nearly 16 points spread underwater, with his average approval falling below 39%. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

Quinnipiac’s recent Biden polling was devastating for Biden last week. It mirrored what many other Biden polling has been reporting.

  • Americans give President Joe Biden a negative 33 vs. 55 percent job approval rating, with 12 percent not offering an opinion.
  • This is a Biden 22 points spread underwater.
  • Biden’s 33 percent job approval among Americans ties the low that he received in Quinnipiac University national polls on April 13, 2022, and January 12, 2022.

Quinnipiac polling of Americans also asked about President Biden’s handling of …

  • the response to the coronavirus: 47 percent approve, while 46 percent disapprove.
  • the response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine: 42 percent approve, while 50 percent disapprove.
  • gun violence: 32 percent approve, while 59 percent disapprove.
  • the economy: 28 percent approve, while 64 percent disapprove.

Gallup’s latest data, from a May 2-22 survey, finds 41% of Americans approving of the job President Joe Biden is doing (though Gallup’s latest poll is a month old now), 18% approving of the job Congress is doing, 16% satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S., and a 32-percentage-point deficit in positive (14%) versus negative (46%) ratings of current economic conditions. Each of those metrics is at least 10 points lower than the historical average at the time of past midterm elections, and most are on pace to be the worst of such readings. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

What is interesting about Gallup’s polling of Biden indicates that U.S. satisfaction and economic conditions are the lowest of any president since President Ford back in 1974.

A more recent  ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted from June 3 to June 4, 2022, delivered devastating news for Biden and Democrats. Overall on the economy, Biden managed 37% and given there is still a whole Summer to go until the midterms, that figure is expected to slump even further.

The issues that are most important to voters are:

  1. Economy- 51 %
  2. Inflation – 51 %
  3. Gas prices- 48 %
  4. Gun violence – 43 %
  5. Abortion – 41%
  6. Crime -36 %
  7. Immigration- 32 %
  8. Global Warming – 25 %
  9. Ukrainian war- 22 %
  10. Chinese coronavirus- 20 %

Biden’s approval ratings on most of these crises are well under 50 percent:

  1. Economy- 37 %
  2. Inflation- 28 %
  3. Gas prices- 27 %
  4. Gun violence- 37 %
  5. Abortion -41 %
  6. Crime -38 %
  7. Immigration- 37 %
  8. Global warming- 43 %
  9. Ukrainian war- 46 %
  10. Chinese coronavirus- 56 %

These type of numbers present as a significant drag on Democrat candidates nationwide.

In light of this Biden polling data, how has Trump been doing for the midterms?

Trump endorsed candidates were 100-7 in Republican primary races from the recent May 24’s elections in Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, and the Texas runoff, as well as Dr. Mehmet Oz’s victory in Pennsylvania’s Republican Senate primary win on June 3 after David McCormick, conceded the race.

The 45th president was perfect in picking candidates in Alabama, Texas, and Arkansas but ran into trouble in Georgia, where four who earned his nod fell short of winning their nominations. Learn more here. Here is more Trump analysis on his endorsed candidates.

Despite Axios’s attempt to spin negatively a few Trump-endorsed candidates that have lost, even their graphic below clearly shows that Trump is running strong – learn more here.

Meanwhile, what is the Biden Democratic party focused on? A January 6th show trial against Trump. A new survey taken in the middle of the January 6 hearings shows that 39% of likely U.S. voters will not tune in to any of the televised hearings, and another 22% said they would only watch “some” of the coverage. Hence, the majority of voters are not interested in the January 6th hearings. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

J6 Hearing Likely ViewersAll this polling data should be good news for conservatives in the coming 2022 midterm elections. However, as we saw in 2020, October surprises and election integrity issues can make what should be a sure win into something else. Democrats see this polling data as well – it’s no wonder their attacks on Trump are so pertinacious.

Keeping vigilant will be imperative.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
