WH Pollster warned immigration, inflation at Tank Biden approval rating

Last year, President Joe Biden’s top pollster, John Anzalone, reportedly repeatedly warned the president that his mishandling of key issues was sure to sink his approval rating.

A year later, Biden’s approval rating has dropped to 33%.

From April to January, Anzalone passed a “series of confidential polling data and weekly memos” to Biden on the southern border invasion, looming inflation and soaring crime rates, according to the New York Times.

“Despite early warnings from his pollster, Mr. Biden and his top advisers have struggled to prevent either issue from becoming a major political liability,” the official said. Time reported. “His economics team said the inflation was temporary. Unrest among his immigration aides has delayed any serious action to tackle the border.

An Anzalone poll reportedly found nine in 10 voters fear Biden’s costly spending on coronavirus and infrastructure could plunge the country into high inflation. He also informed the president last spring that “immigration is the only issue where the president’s ratings are worse with our targets than with the voters as a whole.”

A few months later, on July 9, Anzalone reportedly cited another troubling issue, soaring crime rates linked to the invasion on the southern border. “President Biden continues to hold lower and negative ratings on two burning issues that have surfaced recently,” Anzalone said. “Violent crime has overtaken the coronavirus pandemic as a major crisis.”

Biden has done little to tackle inflation, skyrocketing crime and the southern border invasion. As a result, Biden’s approval rating fell to 33% nearly a year after Anzalone raised concerns with the president. Biden’s approval rating among independents and Hispanics at very low levels. Only 26% of independents approve of Biden. Fifty-six percent disapprove. Among Hispanics, only 26% approve, while 54% disapprove.

In December 2021, inflation reached its highest level in 40 years. Massive inflation is costing American families an estimated additional $5,200 in 2022, or $433 per month, according to Bloomberg.

In February, skyrocketing crime ravaged the country. Nearly all New York City Police Department (NYPD) precincts saw an increase in crime in 2022. The rate doubled at five precincts, an increase of more than 100%, according to the New York Post.

In March, more than 221,300 illegal migrants were meet illegally crossing the US-Mexico border. The number represents a new high for the Biden administration and the worst month since the Department of Homeland Security was established in 2002, according to the Republican National Committee research team. The March number was also the third highest on record.

In April, theThe Democratic Party’s chief pollster, Celinda Lake, admitted that “very informed” Democratic voters feel very negative about the prospects for Biden’s America. The words Democratic voters used to speak out after 16 months in Biden’s presidency were ‘frustrated’, ‘disbelieving’, ‘aggravated’, ‘discouraged’, ‘uncertain’, ‘worried’, ‘resigned’, ‘frightened’ , said Lake Politics.

As Biden struggles to rectify the crises, November’s midterm elections will likely be a referendum on the president’s leadership. Biden’s approval rating is only above water in ten states. In Delaware, Biden’s home state where he served as a senator, his approval rating is just 50%.

Biden’s low polling rate is a bad sign for Democrats. If Democrats have any hope of stopping Republicans from taking over both legislative chambers, that would be reflected in Biden’s poll numbers. A positive presidential ballot usually means congressional races will receive a presidential boost. It seems unlikely that Democrats will get a boost from Biden before November. Biden’s campaign pollster recently revealed that the current political environment is the worst he’s seen in 30 years.

The GOP could be on the brink of a historic landslide election. In the Senate, polls show voters strongly favor Republicans by nine points on a generic ballot (48-39%). The generic ballot is important because it indicates that Republicans in Congress have a national advantage over Democrats, regardless of the candidate. Republicans in specific Senate races are leading in Arizona, New Hampshire, Georgia and Nevada.

In the House, the head of Cook Political Report, David Wasserman estimates The Republicans will have a huge advantage. Cook thinks only 15 Republican districts are either skinny Republicans or probably Republicans. In contrast, 27 Democratic-held districts lean in that direction or are likely Democratic districts.
