Just a brief update on the latest Quinnipiac poll. You may recall alarms bells sounded when they announced on January 12 that President Biden’s job approval numbers had hit an all-time low: 33% approval, 53% disapproval!

So…was that an outlier? True, President Biden’s numbers were in the low 40s but never 30s.  

And he has crept up—but only two points: 35% of Americans approve of the way President Biden is handling his job as president, compared to 55% who disapprove. 

“That’s a net -20 among all respondents, and a net -19 among registered voters,” Ed Morrissey reports. “His aggregated average at RealClearPolitics shows a net -12 today, including the Q-poll results here, so Quinnipiac tends toward the outlier position still, but not by a lot.”

President Biden is “underwater” on every major category.

And, if you want something that (from the Democrat point of view) really is scary, consider this.

Like most Democrats, Biden enjoys an enormous advantage among Black Americans and the religiously “unaffiliated.” News coming out today from the Pew Research Center, regarding a January survey taken by Pew

has revealed a sharp decline in the number of black Protestants who approve of President Joe Biden’s job performance. Whereas 92% approved of Biden’s performance in March 2021, that number plummeted to 65% in January. The survey, which polled more than 5,000 respondents, also revealed lessening support from Catholics and Evangelicals. In an analysis released last week, Pew’s Justin Nortey noted that “there have been sizable declines in positive ratings from black Protestants and the religiously unaffiliated — two groups that are among the Democratic Party’s most loyal constituencies.”

Those are sobering statistics!
