In recent poll results, President Biden’s disapproval rating has reached the highest point of his presidency, marking a significant shift in public sentiment. The survey, conducted by NBC News, sheds light on critical aspects of Biden’s popularity and the potential challenges he faces in the upcoming 2024 election.
Biden’s Approval Plummeting
According to the survey, 56 percent of respondents disapproved of the president’s performance, while only 41 percent approved.
These numbers reveal a notable decline in support for Biden among critical voting blocs, raising concerns within his camp.
One striking trend in the poll is the dwindling support for President Biden among specific demographics.
Among voters aged 18-24, his approval rating stands at 46 percent.
Losing Youth and Latino Votes
Similarly, Latino voters express a 43 percent approval rate, while independent voters, who often play a decisive role in general elections, show a mere 36 percent approval rating for the current administration.
The latest NBC News poll, released on Sunday, echoes a constant theme in recent surveys: a growing number of voters harbor reservations about both President Biden and his potential 2024 rival, former President Trump.
Trump Surges Ahead
Despite facing multiple state and federal criminal indictments, Trump has surged ahead in the GOP primary race, leading by an impressive 43-point margin over a crowded field of contenders.
Trump commands 59 percent support among national Republican primary voters, while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis lags far behind at just 16 percent.
The poll reveals a shift among Republicans, with 58 percent now believing that Trump should continue to lead the party, compared to 49 percent in June.
Age Concerns Not Going Away
Public perception of age remains a significant concern for both Biden and Trump.
A substantial 74 percent of respondents express concerns about President Biden’s age, worrying about his mental and physical capacity to serve as president.
Similarly, 44 percent harbor similar concerns about 77-year-old Trump.
Amidst these concerns, the poll reveals that 1 in 5 voters troubled by Biden’s age would still cast their ballots for him over Trump.
In a hypothetical 2024 match-up, the poll shows Biden and Trump in a dead heat at 46 percent among registered voters.
This marks a significant shift from June when Biden held a 4 percent lead over Trump in the same poll.
In a separate poll by The Washington Post and ABC News, Trump garnered the support of 53 percent of respondents aged 18 to 35, while Biden received backing from only 38 percent.
Young Voters Pivotal
This suggests a further decline in Biden’s popularity among young voters, a group that played a pivotal role in his 2020 victory.
The Biden-Harris campaign has placed a strong emphasis on youth turnout to secure success in 2024.
This poll also indicates that Biden’s lead among ethnic minorities has narrowed to just nine percent, while Trump has made gains in this demographic.
Kamala Harris Does College Tour
To engage young voters, Vice President Kamala Harris has embarked on a tour of U.S. college campuses.
Her speeches focus on Republican challenges to abortion rights and their opposition to canceling student loan debt.
However, the campaign faces ongoing doubts regarding President Biden’s mental and physical fitness, fueled by recent verbal slip-ups and gaffes.
These poll results underscore the shifting political landscape and the challenges facing both President Biden and his potential opponents as the 2024 presidential election draws nearer.
