AMAC Exclusive – By Neil Banerji

There’s no two ways about it – August has been a downright dismal polling month for President Joe Biden.

Things got off to a rough start for the embattled president with an AP-NORC Center poll of 1,165 U.S. adults fielded from August 10-14. Just 42 percent approved of Biden’s job performance, while 57 percent disapproved – including 39 percent who strongly disapproved. Only 24 percent of respondents said the country was headed in the right direction, while 74 percent said it was headed in the wrong direction.

The AP-NORC poll was also bad news for the White House’s recent “Bidenomics” messaging push. Just 36 percent of respondents approve of the way Biden is handling the economy, while a whopping 63 percent disapprove.

Broken down along partisan lines, 8 percent of Republicans approved of Biden’s handling of the economy, while 65 percent of Democrats said the same. While 65 percent represents a solid majority, that number is unusually low for voters of the incumbent president’s party. Those results suggest that, even among Democrats, there is significant frustration with Biden’s performance.

The “Bidenomics” push has been especially lost among rural and suburban Americans, according to an Ipsos poll released this month. 86 percent of people in rural areas report paying higher grocery prices now than they did last year, while 85 percent of people in suburban areas said the same.

A Quinnipiac poll released on August 16 found similar results to the AP-NORC poll. 39 percent of registered voters surveyed approved of Biden’s job performance, while 55 percent disapproved. While “the economy” was the most frequent answer for what the most important issue is in next year’s election (32 percent) just 3 percent of respondents rated the economy as “excellent,” 25 percent rated it as “good,” 34 percent said “not so good,” and 37 percent said “poor.”

Another survey from Rasmussen Reports released on August 15 found that 37 percent of likely voters rate the economy as “good” or “excellent,” while 47 percent gave it a poor rating. Other polls from Fox News, Gallup, and Harvard-Harris also estimated Biden’s approval rating on the economy to be in the high 30 percent range.

There are also some troubling signs for Biden’s support among Black and Hispanic voters, two blocs the president heavily relied on in 2020 and which he will need to win by big margins in 2024.

According to a New York Times/Siena College poll of 1,329 registered voters released on August 1, Biden’s approval rating among Hispanics is just 41 percent, compared to 50 percent who disapprove. In 2020, Biden won 66 percent of the Hispanic vote nationally.

Although Biden’s net approval rating is still +34 percent with black voters (60 percent approve, 26 percent disapprove) that number is a far cry from the 92 percent of the black vote Biden won in the 2020 election. Some Democrat insiders have also expressed concerns that enthusiasm for Biden among black voters has slipped significantly from three years ago.

Among all non-white voters without a college degree, Biden is up just one point, with 47 percent approving of his job performance and 46 percent disapproving.

These results have caused Biden’s overall numbers in a hypothetical 2024 matchup against former President Donald Trump to continue to sag. While Biden was leading by several points in most polls just a few months ago, he leads by just 1.1 points in the latest Real Clear Politics average. The New York Times/Siena poll found the race to be a dead heat, with 43 percent saying they would support Biden and 43 percent saying they would support Trump.

Even among his own party, Biden is struggling. According to an Emerson College poll released last week, 61 percent of likely Democrat primary voters say they support Biden, while 12 percent prefer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and 4 percent prefer author Marianne Williamson.

Barring any major scandal or health crisis, Biden will likely have little trouble securing the Democratic nomination next year. But 61 percent is an unusually low level of support for an incumbent president. Even amid all the mainstream media attacks, Trump routinely polled at 90 percent or higher in 2020 Republican primary surveys.

The Biden team has repeatedly dismissed these alarming results, insisting that the president and his policies are far more popular than virtually every polling agency would suggest. Confronted with data showing that the White House’s economic message isn’t breaking through with voters, Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted “polls don’t show everything” and doubled down on the claim that Bidenomics “is indeed working.”

But with just over 15 months to go until Election Day 2024, Americans just aren’t buying it, and Biden and his allies can only deny reality for so long.

Polls only matter if we have fair and honest elections. Given that many states have done little to nothing since 2020 to restore some semblance of a more secure voting and ballot counting system, it remains problematic as to whether 2024 will end up any differently than 2020, 2021 or 2022.

There is a reason why Team Biden seems so relaxed and completely unconcerned to date about Biden’s continued slide in the public polls over the last 2 1/2 years. The Executive Branch has been fully weaponized and is actively targeting anyone that is even a remote threat to their grip on power. Lawfare, which is one of the many tactics used by repressive regimes all around the world, is now openly being practiced here in the United States.

The MSM, which is nothing more than the propaganda arm and public relations shield of the DNC, continues to bury any news items that threaten the regime and over-hypes the steady stream of disinformation regularly pushed onto a generally uninformed public. Much in the same way TASS functions in Russia or all the state run news outlets function in China. Marxism functions pretty much the same way wherever it is empowered. Same playbook. Same strategy and tactics.

What this article does not tell you is that despite his negative numbers and voters believing he’s too old, senile, and incompetent, that they’ll still vote for him! They’re voting, not “for Biden” but “Not Republican”.

Ironic that the candidate who claimed he would unite the country has implemented policy after policy that has done the opposite. And, we all must demand term limits in Congress or our country will not survive the growing noose of deficit spending/national debt.

Unless a poll clearly states the number of people answering, the number of democrats asked, the number of republicans asked, and the number of independents asked, it is an irrelevant poll. Don’t bother believing the poll unless see the numbers. If those numbers are not balanced the poll is meaningless.

For the past year and longer the FAKE NEWS has kept Dictator Beijing biden’s Poll Ratings the same when in TRUTH it IS FAR LOWER than we are being told. And WE THE PEOPLE know it.
REAL Poll Ratings would put Dictator Beijing biden at 25% or less favorability.
Dictator Beijing biden’s approval is just like Communist News Network (cnn) it KEEPS DROPPING by protecting his lies.

These polls only prove that a lot of people have their head in the sand. They know that things are bad but they are too weak to make better choices. They drink the rhetoric koolaid and hope the insanity gets better.

Polls don’t matter. As long as there is a D behind their name.Liberal, socialists, baby killers will vote for them even if they’re on life support (Biden, Fetterman for example) Look what happened to the Red Wave in the mid-terms. We have to realize that they’re a lot of them out there.

Something never mentioned in these articles about polling: if the popular vote is tied, the Republican wins the electoral College in a landslide. Remember Hillary WON the popular vote.

Really folks, don’t blame the pitiful brain dead fool in the White House. He has nothing at all to do with the destruction on America except being the fraudulently elected Obama Puppet, not a real President. Put Obama (The great destroyer) on trial for high treason, find him guilty (which he is) and give him the legal punishment for those crimes. Hanging or a firing squad!

“Barring any major scandal”?
Just what constitutes a “major scandal” for the author of this story? Surely the business dealings of Hunter Biden and Joe constitute same!

I guarantee you Joseph R Biden is not neck and neck with Donald J Trump. Biden’s polling remains dismally low with no good news in sight, while Trump almost always performs better than the polls. Not only that, Biden still has 15 months in office. At his average rate of at least one major fuckup per week, there is no telling what Biden could f**k up in that length of time.

Biden has been in politics for almost 50 years. He is a habitual liar, had to drop out of law school and twice out of President race for plagiarism. He never had a unique thought of his own as he’s not too bright but he’s a racist who wrote the eulogy for the grandmaster of the KKK. He has never been anything else but a straw puppet and got paid handsome for it. Or a “useful idiot” as Hilary Clinton would put it. He made millions off the American taxpayer. Democrats always elect someone dumber as the elected President as a form of life insurance. Clinton had Al Gore, Obama had Biden and Biden has Harris. This way it is ensured they stay in their position as the VP that would take his position would be worse.
