Polls Turn Poisonous for Democrats as Biden Bungles and the Cities Bleed

Thanks to qdpsteve, Biden's numbers in Iowa are worse than Trump's ever were.

Thirty-one percent of Iowans approve of how Biden is handling his job, while 62% disapprove and 7% are not sure, according to the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll.

That’s a 12 percentage point drop in approval from June, the last time the question was asked. Biden's disapproval numbers jumped by 10 points during the same period. In June, 43% approved and 52% disapproved.

Biden's job approval has not been in net positive territory in Iowa since March, when 47% of Iowans approved of his performance and 44% disapproved.

In other polling news, The Witch Whitmer has seen her approval fall by 11 points since the beginning of 2021.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D., Mich.) job approval rating has plummeted more than 10 points in the last year, according to a state poll.

The Glengariff Group, a Michigan survey research firm, found only 48 percent of voters approve of Whitmer's performance as governor, whereas 46 percent disapprove. In September 2020, the same poll found 59 percent of voters approved of Whitmer's leadership and 38 percent disapproved. The shift in opinions occurred most noticeably among independent voters.

Whitmer's lagging poll numbers come after a year of reports showed Whitmer repeatedly violating her own COVID health policies.

Democrats lose their voter registration in Florida.

Florida was once considered a battleground state, but whatever influence the Democrats had over the Sunshine State is swiftly disappearing as issue after issue plagues their efforts to gain momentum and their footholds are disappearing for the first time ever.

According to The Hill, Democrats are facing a myriad of issues such as a fundraising gap a mile wide when compared to the Florida GOP. This is on top of the fact that the voter registration advantage that they've held for years has effectively been destroyed, going from 700,000 more registered voters in the state to just 23,551 over the course of 2008 to today.

DeSantis has also reduced their opportunity to steal elections.

From The Hill:

At the same time, Democrats are facing daunting structural challenges, including Republican-led redistricting and a controversial new election law pushed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) that puts new restrictions on the collection of mail-in ballots and the use of drop boxes.

"It feels a little bit like we're kind of set up to fail," one Florida Democratic official said. "It's not any one person’s fault. A lot of these problems have existed for years. But for a party that has been decimated in the last few elections and especially the last one, I'm not seeing a sense of urgency yet."

And there are warning sides even in Blue Virginia:

Joe Biden won Virginia 54-44% in 2020. It wasn't close, and this race between Youngkin and McAuliffe shouldn't be either. A month ago, the narrative was beginning to form that Youngkin was not only dead in the water, but that he’d be absolutely shellacked on election day. Now, he's actually within striking distance to possibly pull the upset in a state that has become a blue bastion thanks to Northern Virginia's heavy leftward transformation.

Another poll showing a close contest in the Virginia Governor's race. A new University of Mary Washington survey shows Terry McAuliffe 43%, Glenn Youngkin 38% but among likely voters, it's Youngkin 48%, McAuliffe 43%.
