Poll: Biden Doesn’t Receive State of the Union Approval Bounce

(FreedomBeacon.com)- Typically after giving a State of the Union address, a president enjoys a bit of a healthy bump in his approval numbers. But according to a survey from the Wall Street Journal released on Friday, Joe Biden must be the exception that proves the rule.

Joe Biden’s overall approval rating remains solidly underwater, with only 42 percent approving of the president’s job performance while a whopping 57 percent disapprove.

The survey, conducted from March 2 to March 7 by Impact Research and Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, also found 63 percent of respondents disapproved of President Biden’s handling of inflation.

But Joe Biden isn’t the only one whose polling numbers spell disaster. The Wall Street Journal poll also reveals that Democrats in Congress are in serious trouble heading into the November election.

In the Journal’s generic congressional ballot, respondents prefer Republicans over Democrats by a 5-point margin, 46 percent to 41 percent.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The generic congressional ballot also found that Republicans enjoy a 9 point advantage over Democrats among … wait for it … Hispanic voters.

Yeah, that’s not a typo.

In November, Hispanic voters were evenly split in the generic congressional ballot. So a nine-point jump for Republicans is nothing short of devastating news for the Democrat Party’s hopes in the midterms.

But that’s not the only devastating news for Democrats heading into the November midterms.

The Wall Street Journal survey also found that Democrats have also lost significant ground among black voters as well.

In the generic congressional ballot, the Democrats still hold the advantage over Republicans among blacks, but not by much, with 35 percent of black voters favoring Democrats and 27 percent favoring Republicans.

But in November, Democrats enjoyed a 44 point advantage over Republicans among black voters, 56 percent to 12 percent. That 44-point advantage has dwindled to a measly eight points in just over four months.
