New Quinnipiac poll: Republicans +8 on the generic ballot.— Josh Kraushaar (@HotlineJosh) November 18, 2021
Biden job approval rating now down to 36%. https://t.co/NKY3bKOKG4
I’m continuing to cover horserace politics even though I have no intention of voting in the 2022 midterms. The reason that I do it is because obviously the one thing these people care about is their own grip on power in Washington, the sentiments of voters are real and perceptions that one party is the on the way down or on the way up drives narratives. It is also kind of amusing watching the Democrats self destruct like this. Spending trillions of dollars has gotten Joe Biden to a 36% approval rating.
If memory serves, Quinnipiac is normally a terrible poll for Republicans that is usually way off in favor of the Democrats. It is an “optimistic case for the Democrats” poll like Rasmussen is an “optimistic case for the Republicans” poll. Even Quinnipiac has an R+8 electorate.
“With Election Day in the rearview mirror and both political parties setting their sights on the 2022 midterm elections, a plurality of Americans say that if the election were held today, they would want to see the Republican Party win control of both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University national poll of adults released today.
Americans say 46 – 38 percent they would want to see the Republican Party win control of the House of Representatives, while 16 percent did not offer an opinion.
Republicans and Democrats overwhelmingly back their own parties. Independents say 41 – 31 percent they would want to see Republicans win control of the U.S. House of Representatives, while 28 percent did not offer an opinion.
Americans say 46 – 40 percent they would want to see the Republican Party win control of the U.S. Senate, while 15 percent did not offer an opinion. Independents say 44 – 34 percent that they would want to see the Republican Party win control of the U.S. Senate, and 22 percent did not offer an opinion. …”
It is worth noting this poll was taken entirely after the House finally passed the bipartisan infrastructure bill or BIF. Joe Biden has sunk even further instead of getting a bounce.
Joe Biden has a 36% job approval rating.
He has the support of 29% of Independents. 52% of Whites with a college degree support Joe Biden while only 23% of Whites without a college degree support Joe Biden. Education polarization has gotten worse.
23% of White men support Joe Biden.
33% of White women support Joe Biden.
Joe Biden is also underwater with “Latinx” voters.
11% of White men strongly approve of Joe Biden’s job performance. This includes Richard Spencer.
The Democrats are perceived as having moved too far to the Left: 52% of the public, 54% of Independents, 55% of White voters with college degrees and 63% of White voters without college degrees agree.
The Democrats have moved too far to the Left for pretty much everyone except blacks.
Note: The woke black professional doesn’t see it though.
