Biden Still Hemorrhaging Support from Key Democrat Voter Groups, Poll Shows

Democrat President Joe Biden is still hemorrhaging support from groups of voters who will be vital to his reelection campaign, a new poll has revealed.

According to the USA Today/Suffolk University poll released Monday, Biden is continuing to bleed support from several of the Democrats’ key voter demographics.

Biden’s support among black voters has fallen to just 63%.

This is a significant drop from the 92% that Pew Research Center data shows he won in the 2020 presidential election.

His support among Hispanic voters, meanwhile, is down to 34% from 59%.

Additionally, Biden trails President Donald Trump, his likely Republican opponent, 37%-33%, among young American voters under the age of 35.

On a positive note for Biden, the poll finds that most of that lost support shifts to third-party candidates rather than Trump.

However, it still appears to give the 45th president the edge.

When pitched hypothetically with an unnamed third-party candidate receiving 17%, Trump still leads Biden 39%-37%.

With specified third-party candidates, Trump leads Biden 37%-34% while independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. garnered 10% support.

According to the poll, 20% of Black and Hispanic voters say they support a third-party candidate over Trump or Biden, while 21% of young voters say the same.

The poll also finds a significant enthusiasm gap between those supporting Trump and Biden.

44% of Trump supporters described themselves as “a 10,” the highest level of enthusiasm for their chosen candidate.

However, just 18% of Biden supporters say the same.

Among their respective likely primary voters, Trump and Biden continue to hold commanding leads.

Sixty-two percent of Republicans say they will support Trump.

This places former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in a distant second place at 13%,

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is at 10%, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy at 6%, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 4%.

Biden performs even better within his party, garnering 74% support, compared to just 9% for author Marianne Williamson and 2% for Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips.

However, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has refused to hold primary debates and events, meaning man Democrat voters are unaware of Biden’s challengers.

Just 39% of voters say they approve of Biden’s job performance, with 58% disapproving.

That number edges Vice President Harris’ approval rating of 33%, compared to 57% disapproving.

The disappointing numbers for Biden come as pundits and experts from within his own party continue to sound the alarm over the possibility of Trump winning back the White House.

Those raising concerns include high-profile Democrats such as veteran Clinton strategist James Carville and former Obama administration official David Axelrod.

David Faris, a writer and political science professor at Roosevelt University, recently called the bad news for Democrats “even worse than it looks.”

faris argues that Biden’s historically low polling numbers should “panic” the party heading into 2024.

“Precisely how scared Democrats should be about Biden’s standing depends on how his plight compares with those of presidents past,” the liberal-leaning political scientist wrote.

“And there’s no sugarcoating it: This might be the worst polling environment for an incumbent president one year out from an election since the advent of the polling era in the 1930s and also the most dire situation facing any Democratic presidential candidate in decades.

“Panic is entirely warranted,” he added.
