SHOCK POLL: 78 Percent of Democrats Say America is Headed in Wrong Direction and Biden is to Blame

WASHINGTON– Shocking poll numbers published Wednesday show that the vast majority of American voters — 85% — believe the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction and that President Joe Biden is to blame.

The bipartisan poll conducted by the Associated Press and the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago found that roughly 9 in 10 Republicans and about 78% of Democrats blame blame Biden for America’s current economic woes and 79% of those polled said they consider the economy to be in poor condition.

This latest poll coincides with Biden’s near historic low presidential poll numbers which have him polling at just a 39% approval rating.

“The nationwide poll was conducted June 23-27, 2022 using the AmeriSpeak® Panel, the probability-based panel of NORC at the University of Chicago. Online and telephone interviews using landlines and cell phones were conducted with 1,053 adults,” according to a post from AP-NORC. “The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.0 percentage points.”

SHOCK POLL: Trump approval rating nears 50 percent as more Americans move to the right

WASHINGTON — A recently released Gallop poll shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating standing strong at nearly 50 percent.

According to the survey, 49 percent of Americans surveyed say they “approve or strongly approve” of the job Trump is doing in office. Further, 63% of U.S. adults rate current economic conditions as either excellent or good and 61% of Americans say the economy is getting better rather than worse.

The latest survey represents some of the strongest approval numbers for the president thus far this term.

On the flip side, just 23% of Americans polled said they approve of the job Congress is doing. Those numbers matched January’s survey, but were down slightly from 27% as reflected by opinions collected in December.

According to analysts at Gallop, the president’s strong approval numbers represent excellent news for his re-election campaign.

“An approval rating near 50% greatly increases Trump’s chances of being re-elected, a prospect that seemed unlikely with his approval stuck near 40% for most of his term,” the Gallop stated in it’s analysis of the numbers.

Even what appears to be even better news for the president, more Americans seem to moving to the political right.

“Gallup has observed an increase in the percentage of Americans identifying as Republicans (32% in the past two surveys, up from 28% in the prior two surveys), along with a decline in the percentage identifying as independents (41%, down from 43%) and Democrats (27%, down from 28%),” the survey stated.

The poll, conducted Feb. 3-16, surveyed 1,028 adults. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

BOOKER BAILS: Another Dem withdraws from race as Trump steps up reelection efforts

WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate Corey Booker on Monday announced his intent to withdraw from the race, citing campaign finance woes as the primary cause.

In a letter to his supporters, Booker, who formally announced his campaign in February 2019, said a lack of financial support made it impossible for his campaign to continue.

“Our campaign has reached the point where we need more money to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win — money we don’t have, and money that is harder to raise because I won’t be on the next debate stage and because the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington,” Booker said. “If we can’t raise more money in this final stretch, we won’t be able to do the things that other campaigns with more money can do to show presence.”

“Nearly one year ago, I got in the race for president because I believed to my core that the answer to the common pain Americans are feeling right now, the answer to Donald Trump’s hatred and division, is to reignite our spirit of common purpose to take on our biggest challenges and build a more just and fair country for everyone,” Booker continued. “I’ve always believed that. I still believe that. I’m proud I never compromised my faith in these principles during this campaign to score political points or tear down others.”

“And maybe I’m stubborn, but I’ll never abandon my faith in what we can accomplish when we join together,” he added. “I will carry this fight forward — I just won’t be doing it as a candidate for president this year. Friend, it’s with a full heart that I share this news — I’ve made the decision to suspend my campaign for president.”

Booker is the latest Democratic presidential candidate to withdraw from the race as President Donald Trump continues to step up his efforts at reelection with rallies planned nationwide for the next several weeks.

In a message to his followers posted to his official Facebook page, Trump mocked Booker’s withdrawal, writing: “Really Big Breaking News (Kidding): Booker, who was in zero polling territory, just dropped out of the Democrat Presidential Primary Race. Now I can rest easy tonight. I was sooo concerned that I would someday have to go head to head with him!”

According to poll numbers published by Real Politics, Booker polled at an abysmal 2 percent nationally, which made him ineligible to participate in debates in recent months. Author Marianne Williamson and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro also departed from the race this month.
