WSJ Poll: 41% Approve of Biden's Performance, 57% Disapprove

That is a big, big disapproval. Almost 60%.

Meanwhile, he's underwater with independents by 36%.

Only 30% of independent approve, vs. 66% who disapprove.

Michael McAdams @M_McAdams HOLY...

is -36 with independent voters in a new WSJ survey.

Only 30% approve and 66% disapprove.

Republicans hold massive leads on:

- Rebuilding the Economy
- Getting inflation under control
- Securing the border

WSJ article here, thankfully not behind a paywall for once.

How many Democrats are in this sample where Biden is at 41% approval despite being at 30% with independents and presumably even lower with Republicans?

They're claiming that something like 60% of the country are Democrats? That Independents plus Republicans together constitute a distinct minority?

And what would the Republicans' lead be like with a more reasonable sample?

More voters say they would back a Republican than a Democrat for Congress, 44% to 41%, if the election were held today, a lead that is within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.

See RedState for a list of issues the public wants the president and Congress to focus on -- immigration topping the list at 13%, followed by the economy at 11% and inflation at 10%.

Surprisingly, the situation in Afghanistan comes in at a whopping 0 percent, so while that travesty may have been a big reason for Biden's initial collapse some months ago, it appears that other issues are now at the forefront of most people's minds. That China doesn't register is a bit disconcerting, but given this is only a ranking of top issues, Americans very well could still have a decent understanding of the threat posed.

Past that, another gut punch for Democrats is delivered by abortion coming in at just 1 percent. For a few days, many on the left were bleating that the Supreme Court possibly gutting Roe v. Wade would represent a turnaround moment for their 2022 chances. That doesn't appear to be the case, a reality I discussed some days ago.

Yes this is a blow-off post. I was going to just post the animal post but I saw this poll drop.
