A new national survey of 1,500 registered voters found that most respondents said they want the United States to return to President Donald Trump’s policies on several issues, which could explain why the vast majority of voters feel that the economy is heading in the wrong direction.
In addition, the poll also reported that President Joe Biden and Trump’s unfavorability ratings are both 54%.
The poll was sponsored by The Wall Street Journal, ALG Research, and the firm Fabarazio Lee, and conducted between November 16 and November 22.
The Daily Wire reports:
Voters were asked, “Regardless of how you may feel personally about each man, would you rather continue pursuing Joe Biden’s policies and proposals or return to Donald Trump’s policies and proposals?” According to the survey, 46% said they somewhat or strongly wanted to continue Biden’s policies while 48% said that they somewhat or strongly wanted to return to Trump’s policies.
When asked, “Specifically, would you say that the economy is going in the right direction or headed in the wrong direction?” a whopping 61% of voters said it was going in the “wrong direction.”
In terms of favorability rating, Biden eeks out Trump with a 43% favorability rating compared to the former president’s 41%, but both are tied at 54% unfavorable.
Likewise, 57% of voters either somewhat or strongly disapprove of the job that Biden is currently doing as president, while only 50% disapprove of the job that Trump did while he was in office.
The survey is just the latest in a series that serves as bad news for Biden and Democrats.
A shocking new survey released by USA Today in early November found that support for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris has completely cratered.
“A year before the 2022 midterm elections, Republicans hold a clear lead on the congressional ballot as President Joe Biden’s approval rating sinks to a new low of 38%,” the paper reported, adding that Harris’ approval rating is worse: Just 28%.
The paper claimed that with Friday’s passage of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and a better-than-expected jobs report for October, that Biden and Harris, as well as Democrats in general, are “poised” to recover.
But the survey is also likely reflective of the fact that Americans are paying more for virtually everything, the southern border is a mess, there is an ongoing supply chain crisis, and left-wing agendas are permeating public schools.
The USA Today/Suffolk University survey also found:
- Nearly half of those surveyed, 46%, say Biden has done a worse job as president than they expected, including 16% of those who voted for him. Independents, by 7-1 (44%-6%), say he’s done worse, not better, than they expected.
- Nearly two-thirds of Americans, 64%, say they don’t want Biden to run for a second term in 2024. That includes 28% of Democrats. Opposition to Trump running for another term in 2024 stands at 58%, including 24% of Republicans.
- Vice President Kamala Harris’ approval rating is 28% – even worse than Biden’s. The poll shows that 51% disapprove of the job she’s doing. One in 5, 21%, are undecided.
- Americans overwhelmingly support the infrastructure bill Biden is about to sign, but they are split on the more expensive and further-reaching “Build Back Better” act being debated in Congress. Only 1 in 4 say the bill’s provisions would help them and their families.
“If the election were today, those surveyed say, they would vote for their Republican congressional candidate over the Democratic one by 46%-38%, an advantage that would bode well for GOP hopes of gaining a majority in the House and the Senate,” the report noted.
