No matter how you slice it, Biden's newest poll numbers are just really, REALLY bad
· Feb 18, 2022 ·

Let's admit it: It was really hard to get jazzed up about Joe Biden in the first place.

If you voted for him, it was probably solely because he was a foil to Donald Trump rather than anything having to do with his qualifications.

Biden's mortifying poll numbers really seem to confirm that:

February's Quinnipiac poll shows that just 37% of registered voters approve of Biden's performance in office, while an eye-popping 56% disapprove. Biden's approval rating among Hispanics sits at 36%, with 49% disapproving. He is underwater with women and barely breaking even with college-educated white women.

CNN's most recent poll was even worse. It showed 58% disapproving of how Biden has fared as president, with 41% registering their approval. Among independents, Biden's approval rating was just 36%. Of the respondents who disapproved, 56% couldn't think of a single positive thing to say. The 1 in 4 who approved said much the same thing.

I mean...what can you say about these sorts of results?

It's worth noting that the RealClearPolitcs average of people who "see the country moving in the right direction" is about a 64/28 negative split, with those numbers growing even more in certain polls:

Some individual surveys are worse still. An NBC News poll pegged the split at 72% wrong track, 50 points greater than those who picked right track. Gallup's numbers for "satisfaction with the way things are going in U.S." is near a 40-year low.

But least President Trump isn't tweeting out mean stuff, right??

We have that at least, right??

It'll sure be neat to see what the numbers look like in February 2023!
