An old Ronald Reagan adage can be used to explain the reason for a red wave sweep in midterms.
The Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the party. The party left me.”
Many Democrat voters felt the same sentiment at the time, feeling that their party had abandoned them for more leftism. This sentiment would sweep the former actor into high offices.
It seems that history is repeating itself. The popularity of President Joe Biden is on the decline and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. He and the Democrats are responsible for this with their repeated failures in every area of foreign policy and economic health. The Democrat Party prefers to embrace extreme solutions and positions rather than taking common-sense steps for improving the nation.
These are such dire positions that Biden’s recent decline in the polls has been helped quite a bit by his party, Fox News reports.
Only 2 out 10 Americans think the U.S. economy is moving in the right direction, a drop of 3 out 10 from a month ago. These drops were concentrated in Democrats with only 33% of the president’s party saying that the country is heading in the right direction. This is down from 49% in April.
According to the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research, only 39% of Americans approve of Biden as President.
Biden’s overall approval with Democrats is at 73%, a decrease from 82% in last year’s poll. Biden’s approval among Democrats has never fallen below 82% in 2021.
This approval rating was at 63% last year. That’s a drop of 24% in a short time.
Fox News reported that this is not the only drop. Only a few believe that he has done any good in terms of his economic decisions, which is also a sinking number.
Only 18% of Americans believe that Biden’s policies have done more to help the economy than they have hurt it, a drop from 24% in March. However, 51% of Americans believe that his policies have caused more harm than they have helped. 30% say he hasn’t made any difference.
This poll follows another showing that Biden is losing support among the Hispanic community.
The current leader of the Democrat Party is in deep trouble and taking his colleagues along. Despite doing all they can to stop the bleeding, the midterm elections look like a disaster for Democrats.
