Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard recently looked at a slew of new polling – including a very interesting poll from Rasmussen – and concluded that if a presidential election were held today pitting Joe Biden against Donald Trump, Trump would come out on top.

Biden’s approval rating is currently below 50 percent. Needless to say, this is not good news for the president.

On Trump’s end, his support among women and black Americans is up even further than his relative gains in the 2020 election.

Biden ‘Bungling America’s Withdrawal From Afghanistan, Increasing Inflation, And Spiraling Crime’

Bedard notes that according to a recent Rasmussen poll, “By a six-point margin, 43%-37%, likely voters would pick Trump over Biden ‘if the next presidential election were held today.”

“The details of the survey, which samples more Democrats than Republicans, showed that Trump would win more women and blacks than he did in 2020 when he lost to Biden, 46.8%-51.3%,” Bedard observes.

He adds, “A sizable 14% would choose ‘some other candidate,’ though none were named.”

Bedard says that for Biden, the “bungling America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, increasing inflation, and spiraling crime,” this kind of news about his decreasing support could not come at a worse time in his presidency.

Not to mention the ongoing, largely-ignored crisis on the southern border.

Multiple outlets have showed Biden’s approval at less than a majority.

An Axios headline on Wednesday blared, “Biden’s average approval rating drops below 50% for first time.” The Axios story used polls from FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics as sources.

A Lot Can Happen In Three Years, But Biden Could Be Vulnerable In 2024

Axios reported, “This marks a precipitous decline from the FiveThirtyEight peak of 55.1% in March and the RCP peak of 55.7% in April.”

Polling seems to indicate that although Joe Biden came out as president in 2020, it has been a weak White House run thus far and though a lot could happen before 2024, he could be open to a real challenge in the next presidential election.
