POLL POSITION: Biden Battling Brutal Approval Numbers Heading Into State of the Union

Can stumbling Joe Biden recover?

According to a Fox News report, President Biden is facing dismal approval ratings from multiple polling sources and media outlets heading into Thursday night’s State of the Union address.

Immigration, the economy, and Biden’s mental and physical health are hot-button issues for voters.

“The numbers don’t lie. Americans know that the state of the union is weaker because of Joe Biden,” RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel told Fox News Digital.

“Biden and Democrats are underwater on key issues that Americans care about the most, from the economy to crime, from the open border to protecting our standing on the world stage,” McDaniel continued. “Voters do not want Biden to ‘finish the job,’ which is why this will be his last State of the Union address.”

From Fox News:

Biden will address an American electorate that overwhelmingly sees him as failing to meet their expectations. A February Fox News poll found that 42% of voters approved of his job handling while 58% disapproved. His recent numbers slightly dipped from the same time last year when 44% approved of his job performance while 55% disapproved.

Recent polls have shown that voters are more optimistic about the economy, but that sentiment is not benefiting Biden, the Wall Street Journal reported. Others have demonstrated that voters believe the economy was better under former President Trump than Biden as the two head for a rematch in the November general election.

Biden’s problems heading into his State of the Union address also extend to immigration — an issue that has plagued him for some time. Migrant encounters at the southern border reached a record monthly high of 302,000 in December. During fiscal 2023, the U.S. saw 2.4 million migrant encounters at the border, which was also an all-time high.

“The amount of media and social media scrutiny that the address will blast at Biden will likely exceed the power of a billion suns,” Politico senior media writer Jack Shafer wrote on Thursday. “His every handshake coming down the aisle, his every step taken, his every word spoken, will be magnified a hundred times over by the press, his political opposition and voters as they take his measure.”

Even MSNBC is sounding the alarm over Biden’s falling poll numbers. Analyst Steve Kornacki said this week that it seems Trump is picking up voters from Biden — not the other way around.

President Biden was recently confronted about his falling poll numbers — but he thinks he’s doing okay.
