The poll also found Biden’s approval is dropping with Democrats.
The Washington Post reports:
Biden’s popularity also has slumped among his own base. In June, 94 percent of Democrats approved of the way he was handling his job compared with 3 percent who disapproved. Today, 80 percent of Democrats are positive and 16 percent are negative. Barely 4 in 10 Democrats strongly approve of Biden today, down from about 7 in 10 who did so in June.
Biden’s critics had a field day with the results of the poll especially with the result showing Republicans having a lead over Democrats for Congress in next year’s election.
A new ABC/Washington Post poll shows Biden’s approval rating plunging to a new low of 41%.
The poll also shows its largest lead EVER for Republicans over Democrats on a generic ballot.
The red wave is coming!
