Biden's "approval" numbers are spiraling down the drain with all demographic groups.....

The Tradition

(CNN) The summer of 2022 is a season of deepening and widespread discontent, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. The survey finds the public's outlook on the state of the country the worst it's been since 2009, while its view on the economy is the worst since 2011. And nearly 7 in 10 say President Joe Biden hasn't paid enough attention to the nation's most pressing problems.

Biden's approval rating in the poll stands at 38%, with 62% disapproving. His approval ratings for handling the economy (30%) and inflation (25%) are notably lower. Rising costs are a primary economic pressure for most Americans: 75% call inflation and the cost of living the most important economic problem facing their family. Last summer, that figure stood at 43%.

With midterm elections approaching, the poll finds no indication that Biden's standing with the public is improving -- and among some critical constituencies, it is worsening. Among Democrats, for example, Biden's approval numbers have softened by 13 points since the spring (from 86% in a late April through early May poll to 73% now), while his numbers among independents and Republicans have held about even. Biden's approval rating among Democrats for handling the economy is also on the decline (62% approve, down from 71% this spring). And on inflation, it is barely above water (51% of Democrats approve, 47% disapprove).

Among people of color, 45% now approve of Biden's overall performance, down from 54% in the spring. That decline includes a 6-point dip among Black adults and a 9-point decline among Hispanic adults. Biden's approval ratings for handling the economy and inflation now break negative among Black adults, who have been among the President's strongest backers (47% approve and 52% disapprove on the economy, while 34% approve and 65% disapprove on inflation).

Few Americans who approve of Biden's overall performance say they do so strongly. Overall, just 12% strongly approve of the way Biden is handling the presidency compared with 43% who say they strongly disapprove of his work. Only 28% of Democrats strongly approve, while among Republicans, strong disapproval is nearly universal at 84%.

The public's perceptions of the economy and of how things are going in the country overall are deeply negative and worsening. Since the spring, the share saying things are going badly for the country has climbed 11 points to 79%, the highest since February 2009, and shy of the all-time worst reached in November 2008 by just four points. That shift comes largely among Democrats. Just 38% of Democrats now say things are going well in the country, down from 61% this spring. Likewise, there's been a steep drop among people of color, from 41% saying things were going well in the spring to 27% now.

Only 18% of Americans describe the nation's economy as in good shape, while 82% say economic conditions are poor. About 4 in 10 (41%) describe the economy as "very poor," up 11 points since the spring and nearly doubled since December. As some economists warn of a looming recession, most Americans think the country is already there. The poll finds 64% of Americans feel the economy is currently in a recession, higher than the shares who said so just ahead of the Great Recession (46% felt that way in October 2007) and a recession that began in 2001 (44% said the country was already in a recession in February '01). Majorities across parties say the country is already in a recession, including 56% of Democrats, 63% of independents and 76% of Republicans.

Asked to name the biggest economic problem facing their family today, 75% call out an issue related to the cost of living or inflation, including 38% who mentioned inflation and rising costs generally, 29% who mention gas prices, and 18% who mention the cost of food. All of those figures have increased sharply since last summer. One poll participant said, "Prices on everything just keeps getting higher and higher. is it going to stop?" Another said, "I work 40+ hours and can barely afford to survive. With the price of gas and price of food so high, I don't see how anyone can have extra money to do anything other than work." And a third participant said, "Inflation causes so much pain with everything we buy and everything we do."

While the public's attention has shifted sharply to inflation, few think the President's focus has followed. In the poll, 68% say Biden has not paid enough attention to the country's most important problems, up from 58% who said so last November. That outpaces the previous high in CNN polling saying a President's attention has been misplaced (59% saying Donald Trump hadn't paid attention to the most important problems in late summer 2017).

On this question too, Biden is losing ground among his core support groups. Among Democrats, 57% say he has the right priorities, down nearly 20 points from 75% last fall. Among people of color, just 35% say he has the right priorities, and among those younger than 35, only 23% say the President has the right focus.

The poll finds Biden's approval ratings for handling immigration (39%) and the situation in Ukraine (46%) outperforming those for economic issues, but majorities disapprove on both issues.

The survey also suggests both the President's and vice president's personal favorability has taken a hit. A year and a half ago, just before their inauguration, 59% held a favorable opinion of Biden and 51% had a favorable view of Kamala Harris. Now, those figures stand at 36% and 32% respectively. Meanwhile, the public's view of first lady Jill Biden is mixed: 34% have a favorable opinion, 29% unfavorable and 37% are unsure how they feel about her.

The new CNN Poll was conducted by SSRS June 13 through July 13 among a random national sample of 1,459 adults initially reached by mail, and is the third survey CNN has conducted using this methodology. Surveys were either conducted online or by telephone with a live interviewer. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

Many Democratic candidates don’t want him campaigning for them or endorsing him. They are trying to distance themselves to have a chance. More and more want to figure out how to get him not to run in 2024 as well (if he is even mentally able by then which is extremely doubtful).

It seems the vast majority of the nation is saying no thanks to this admin’s bizarre insistence on putting weird social issues at the forefront. He has lost all demographics now, all races, all ages, the independents, many democrats. Lower approval rating than Trump ever had, who would have thought. Hopefully better days ahead!

Weird social issues at the forefront? You mean according to Breitbart or The Daily Wire? And Trump had a 34% approval rating. Easily lower than Biden in any poll. Try getting your news from different sites than the same ones you jerk off too.

Popularity numbers don't mean squat if you try to translate them to an election.

Because an election is a CHOICE between two individuals. Trump's numbers were in the toilet for much of his term. What did it end up...53/47 or 52/48 in the raw vote in 2020?

Biden would kill Trunp again if they faced each other.

Hopefully we see two other options.

BTW: OP is dumb.

Two current state governors are standing by to enter
the 2024 Presidential election. The governor of Illinois
and the governor of California are licking their chops
to enter the Democrat primaries.

A legit Democrat primary would be worth the price of admission.

It must have been worse than Trump at this point in his presidency. It was a mainstream report, I think Biden is 36%. Never follow Breitbart or Daily wire. According to CNN it gets worse and worse for Joe. Even Hillary says he needs to drop the trans stuff. People aren’t interested in the stuff his admin is focused on.

People aren't interested in infrastructure and reproductive freedom?

And lets get real, it's the Rs pushing the trans stuff. Just like with CRT, it's a made up issue to get people like you shouting their fists at the sky.

The abortion issue definitely will help the Dems, it will make it much closer than it was going to be. The BBB is horrible, thankfully that didn’t get passed. And no, the Dems mainly care about the insignificant alphabet soup nonsense.

It's made up? Those issues don't exist?

Also, a bit of advice for you. The majority of Americans wont tell you this straight up, but most Americans don't give two shits about restrictions being placed on abortion. It doesn't affect them.

Abortion is the 4th most important issue according to polling. It crushes CRT and transphobia.

Maybe, we had voter fraud in many States that Trump supposedly won.

Likely massive undercounting of votes for Joe Biden.

Did I do that right, connis?
Most audits showed more votes for Biden. You could be onto something.

So what this tells us is that Biden is the most popular of the three branches of government by a considerable margin.
Dammit. You mean there was a popularity contest and I didn’t get to vote?

Is that how we’re running our country now?

74 million people voted for Trump. THAT says a lot and none of it is remotely good.

The election is over. Biden is our duly elected President.
The next vote in November will hopefully be the first step in limiting his and his handlers power.
And God willing in 2024 74 million and several million more will have turned the page and will vote for one of two new candidates for President.

Now, does that make your head explode?
One can only hope.

Tell that to the cultists across the land desecrating it. State Legislators passing bullshit election laws based off the Big Lie. The GOP is ALL in. Get with reality.

Your last line is hysterically funny, coming from you.
And election law reform is a pushback against the leftists who know they can’t win without cheating. America can’t wait to vote in November and remind you that the far left crap you’re trying to force on us is not what the majority wants.

Chis, Biden cannot win again. Kamala is totally up unelectable. Petey has 0 chance. You see this don’t you? Maybe Biden would beat Trump again (hopefully he can’t run) but that is about the only candidate he would have a chance against. Very few Dems want Biden to run again.
