(Patriot.Buzz) – In a clear disapproval of the country’s current dismal state, a recent Quinnipiac University poll reveals a notable shift in the political landscape as the 2024 presidential election approaches. The poll indicates a decline in Biden’s approval rating and a rise in support for former President Donald Trump.
The survey highlights a significant drop in American voters’ approval of Biden, primarily attributed to his handling of the conflict between Israel and Hamas. Biden’s job approval rating stands at 37%, with a disapproval rate of 59%. This unfavorable perspective extends to his overall image, with equal percentages reflecting favorability and unfavorability.
Biden’s approach to the Israeli-Hamas war has garnered considerable disapproval, with only 37% of respondents endorsing his response and 54% expressing dissatisfaction. This marks a notable decline from earlier in the month, where 42% approved and 46% disapproved of his handling of the situation.
Trump, in contrast, appears to be faring better in terms of public perception, with a favorability rating of 42%.
Looking ahead to the hypothetical 2024 presidential race, Trump has edged out Biden with a 48% to 46% lead in Quinnipiac’s poll, a position he hasn’t held since February. This slight advantage persists even when considering the inclusion of independent presidential candidates.
In scenarios with independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Cornel West, and Green Party’s Jill Stein, Trump maintains a lead. With Kennedy in the race, Trump secures 38% support, closely followed by Biden at 37% and Kennedy at 21%. In a five-way contest including West and Stein, Trump garners 38%, Biden 35%, Kennedy 17%, West 3%, and Stein 3%.
Trump also shows a commanding lead in the Republican presidential nomination race, holding 64% support compared to other potential candidates like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.
For the Democratic presidential nomination, Biden remains the front-runner with 74% support. Author Marianne Williamson, Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, and progressive political commentator Cenk Uygur follow him.
