Pro-abortion Biden’s slide continues downward

As we written many times, pro-abortion President Joe Biden’s job performance is under water by a whopping 15 points, topping out at 41%-42%.  But Gallup’s recent poll also shows vulnerability on other items as well.

Jeffrey M. Jones writes

Americans are less likely now than they were in 2020 to believe a number of positive personal qualities and characteristics apply to President Joe Biden. The biggest decline has come in the percentage believing Biden is able to manage government effectively, but his scores are down at least six percentage points on each characteristic. Over the same period, public impressions of Donald Trump haven’t changed to a statically significant degree.

Let’s break out some of the numbers. For example,

Independents are least likely to think Biden can manage government effectively and is a strong and decisive leader. Those traits also rank low for Biden among Democrats and Republicans, though his lowest score among Democrats is for displaying good judgment in a crisis.

What about comparing their numbers in 2020 versus 2024? Jones writes

The 2024 election will differ from the 2020 Trump-Biden contest in one important way: Voters today have significantly less-positive views of Biden overall and of his personal qualities now than four years ago. That might put Biden and Trump on a more level playing field than was the case in 2020.

And we can’t ignore Biden’s rapidly diminishing support among Hispanics. Writing for Axios, Russell Contreras explains

Biden’s advantage over Trump among all Latinos has fallen from 29 points after Biden’s first year in office (53-24) to just 9 points (41-32), amid frustrations over inflation and crime.


Biden’s lead shrinks even further — to 3 points — among Latinos who said they plan to vote in November.

And “Trump is winning Latino men outright, with Biden drawing only 40%,” according to Aaron Zitner.

Finally, Zitner explores a recent Wall Street Journal survey with these remarkable findings:

The Journal poll finds Biden drawing only 37% of men in the seven swing states on a ballot that includes only him and Trump, about the same as the 38% the Journal found in a poll of voters nationwide in February. Those are far weaker showings than the 46% of men Biden won in the 2020 election, as measured by AP VoteCast, a big survey of the electorate that year.


At the same time, Biden’s hold among women is also weakening to about 50% support, down 4 percentage points between the 2020 and February polls. But it is the men who are showing the greater shift away from Biden.


In 2020, Biden won 55% of women and 46% of men—a gap of nine points. In the Journal’s national and swing-state polls, that gap is now at 13 points, due mostly to his deteriorating support among men.

More fascinating results tomorrow.
