44 States 'Disapprove' Of President Biden


A Morning Consult report has shown that voters in 44 states are now more likely to disapprove than approve of Biden’s job performance. At this point in 2018, former President Donald Trump’s was underwater in a comparatively strong 27 states.

  • Morning Consult: “It leaves the Democratic standard-bearer in a markedly worse position ahead of the midterms than then-President Donald Trump and his party faced in 2018, with attrition among Biden’s base a key factor, along with a comparatively more hostile review from independents and voters on the other side of the aisle.”
  • The report also shows the uphill battle faced by frontline Democrats in November.
  • Morning Consult: “Among states that proved vital to Biden’s 2020 Electoral College victory and host key Senate and House races in November — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — roughly 2 in 5 voters approve of his job performance, down by double digits after nearly uniform declines that started in the third quarter of 2021.”
