Progressive poll shows Biden’s support crashing

A progressive poll shows Joe Biden as even more unpopular than some nonpartisan or conservative polls. As Hot Air’s Ed Morrisey notes, “It’s quite an achievement to score worse in a poll from your own side than you do in a poll from the other side….Joe Biden’s…. 37% job approval rating in Civiqs’ tracking poll has to sting, considering that Civiqs was founded and is run by Markos ‘Daily Kos’ Moulitsas.” That’s even “worse than the [polling average] of 43/54, which itself has trended badly over the last week”:

Compare that to the most recent poll from conservative-leaning pollster Trafalgar, which finds an overall popularity gap that’s similar in size, but shows Biden with more strong supporters:

Conservative-leaning polls show Biden underwater by 16%, while progressive-leaning polls show him underwater by 17%. Among independents polled by conservative pollster Trafalgar, Biden has a 39/52% approval rating, but a mere 7% of independents strongly approve of Biden’s job performance, while 43% strongly disapprove.

On the other hand, progressive-leaning Civiqs provides data broken down into many demographics, and most of them are unenthusiastic about Biden. Independents disapprove of Biden by a 26/63% margin, a gap of 37% rather than the 13% shown in the conservative-leaning Trafalgar poll. Unlike other polls in the last few weeks, Civiqs shows Biden ahead with Hispanics, but only 50/39%, and even among black voters, only 65% approve of Biden’s job performance. Biden is underwater in virtually every other Civiqs demographic, such as people under 25 (29/55%), people with graduate degrees (42/49%), and women (41/48%).

Biden is approved of by a plurality of voters in only five states. He is approved of by more than 50% in only two staunchly progressive states, Hawaii and Vermont.

Biden is unpopular in the swing states holding Senate elections in 2022:

  • Arizona, represented by Sen. Mark Kelly (D): 36/57%
  • Colorado, represented by Cory Gardner (R): 41/50%
  • Georgia, represented by Raphael Warnock (D): 30/59%
  • Nevada, represented by Catherine Cortez Masto (D): 37/54%
  • New Hampshire, represented by Maggie Hassan (D): 43/50%
  • North Carolina, represented by retiring Sen. Richard Burr (R): 35/57%
  • Ohio, represented by retiring Sen. Rob Portman (R): 30/61%
  • Pennsylvania, represented by retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R): 39/54%
  • Wisconsin, represented by Ron Johnson (R): 38/54%

As Morrissey notes, while “this is just one poll,” the “latest” polling average “makes Civiqs look much more within the trend than an outlier”:
