Poll: Women, Suburbanites, Middle-class Deserting Biden

If an election were held today, a substantial number of those who voted President Joe Biden in November wouldn’t do so now, a new I&I/TIPP Poll shows. This comes after a spate of recent polls from TIPP and others suggesting Biden’s political support is in a freefall as Americans question his leadership on issues ranging from COVID-19 to the chaos on the U.S.’ southern border to the recent botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The I&I/TIPP Poll asked Americans: “If the presidential election were held today, and the following were the candidates, for whom would you vote?”

Respondents were given the following choices: “Donald Trump, the Republican,” “Joe Biden, the Democrat,” “Other,” “Not sure,” and “Prefer not to answer.”

Just 46% of those who voted in the November 2020 election said they’d vote for Biden today, more than five full percentage points below his official total 51.3% share in the 2020 presidential election. That doesn’t mean voters are wishing they’d instead picked Trump, who in recent weeks has hinted at a possible re-run in 2024. The poll found 42% said they’d pick Trump now, down from his actual 2020 election total of 46.9%.

Some 7% of those responding said they would vote for someone “other” than the two candidates, while 4% said they were unsure whom they would vote for.

These data come from the I&I/TIPP poll, conducted each month by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, I&I’s polling partner. The poll of 1,305 adults was taken online from Sept. 1 through Sept. 3, and is part of a broad new public opinion collaboration between Issues & Insights and TIPP. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 points. The analysis for this story is based 1,002 Americans who voted in 2020 and revealed their 2020 vote.

Also interesting is where Biden lost the most support – among women, suburbanites, moderates, and the middle-class. In other words, the key groups that helped put him in the White House.

The poll found that only 49% of women said they’d vote for Biden today, down from 57% who said they did so in November. Among suburbanites, 41% would vote for Biden now, down from 48% who’d actually cast their ballot for him.

Biden’s support among moderates went from 56% to 47%. Among those making between $50,000 and $75,000, it fell from 54% to 44%.

Biden has lost support from Democrats as well, with 88% saying they’d vote him now, compared with 93% who said they did so in November. But support for Trump among Republicans has declined as well. The poll found that 86% of Republicans said they’d vote for Trump today, down from 93% who did so.

POLL: Fauci’s Credibility Craters

COVID-19 czar Dr. Anthony Fauci’s credibility is down to an all-time low after he raised doubts about families gathering for Christmas.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 54% of likely voters agreed that he has lost “all credibility.”

Just 36% disagreed when asked, “Do you agree or disagree with this statement: ‘Fauci has lost all credibility with the American people. We aren’t waiting for his permission to celebrate Christmas together.”

The poll also revealed that after 18 months in the public eye as the government’s coronavirus expert, his approval is underwater. Rasmussen found that 45% have an unfavorable view of the doctor, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, while 41% have a favorable view.

Interestingly, there was a close split among voters over his initial comments that it is too soon to tell if Christmas will be normal.

Some 44% agreed with Fauci’s comments while 48% disagreed. After making them, he later clarified that he didn’t mean to suggest that vaccinated people couldn’t gather for the holiday.

Fauci, one of the most sought-after TV interviews, was recently featured in a documentary and continues to be a heavy news presence.

Biden’s Approval 10 Points Lower Than Obama’s At Same Point In Presidency

President Biden’s job approval currently sits 10 points lower than that of his former boss, President Barack Obama, at the same point in his presidency in 2009.

According to approval ratings averages calculated by RealClearPolitics (RCP), Obama’s approval rating on Oct. 11 during his first year in office sat at 53 percent with a disapproval rating of 40 percent. 

During all of Obama’s eight years as president, Biden worked as his vice president. 

It has been over 12 years since the two started their time in the White House, and Biden is now sitting at an RCP average approval rating of 43 percent with a disapproval rating of 52.3 percent.

The averages calculated by RCP are pulled from a variety of polls including ones done by Fox News, Gallup, Reuters/Ipsos, Rasmussen and Monmouth.

Biden’s approval rating has been steadily dropping since he took office in January as his administration has attempted to manage a variety of blunders from the chaotic troop withdrawal from Afghanistan to the record-smashing surge of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border

Rasmussen: Growing Number of Voters Say Cheating Tainted the 2020 Election

Biden 2020 win ‘tainted,’ 56% say it was a cheater’s paradise

Rasmussen: Growing Number of Voters Say Cheating Tainted the 2020 Election

A growing number of likely voters believe that cheating tainted President Joe Biden’s 2020 win over former President Donald Trump, and even more feel that a key Democratic election reform scheme will increase fraud.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 56% of respondents said, “It’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 41% who say it’s ‘very likely.’”

That is a significant increase from April, when 51% said “Biden’s election was tainted by cheating.”

The change comes as Trump has continued to raise election integrity charges and as Democrats have tried to force through liberal election reforms and shut down GOP state voting reforms.

In the new survey, voters told Rasmussen that they are not sold on efforts by Biden and congressional Democrats to expand COVID-era voting by mail, believing it will “lead to more cheating in elections.”

The results are a rejection of sorts of key features in House and Senate election reform bills supported by Biden and given to Vice President Kamala Harris to sell nationally.

By a 65%-28% margin, likely voters told the polling outfit that they believe more mail-in voting options will boost cheating. That included a majority, 51%, who said it is “very likely” cheating will expand.

The survey is the latest to suggest that partisans remain divided on the issue, though 95% agree with the vague goal of ending election cheating.
