NYT Survey Shows Depth Of Biden's Vulnerabilities

US

A new surveyfrom the New York Times/Siena College has shown highly pessismitic voter views on President Biden's age, popularity, and prospects in a hypothetical 2024 matchup with former President Donald Trump.

  • NYT notes: “A striking 61 percent of the voters who supported Joe Biden in 2020 now believe he is “just too old” to lead the United States effectively…The misgivings about the president’s age, which cut across generations, gender, race and education, pose a deepening threat to his re-election bid.”
  • NYT’s Nate Cohen writes: “Mr. Biden is very unpopular. He’s so unpopular that he’s now even less popular than Mr. Trump, who remains every bit as unpopular as he was four years ago.”
  • On the risk posed by ‘double haters,’ Cohen notes: “Overall, 19 percent of registered voters in the Times/Siena survey have an unfavorable view of both candidates. … They backed Mr. Biden by a three-to-one margin among those who voted in 2020, but now he holds the support of less than half.”
  • On Biden’s cratering support amongst minority voters: “Mr. Biden’s support among nonwhite voters keeps sinking. He held just a 49-39 lead among the group, even though nonwhite respondents who voted in the 2020 election said they backed Mr. Biden, 69-21.”
