Voters are skeptical of Biden’s leadership and prefer Trump, according to Times/Siena poll

In a recent poll conducted by The New York Times and Siena College, concerning findings reveal that President Biden is grappling with doubt about his leadership within his own party and facing widespread dissatisfaction with the nation’s current direction. This has led to a situation where he is falling behind Donald J. Trump just as the general election contest is about to commence.

Despite there being eight months left until the November election, the poll results show that Mr. Biden’s support of 43 percent trails behind Mr. Trump’s 48 percent among registered voters nationally. Only a quarter of voters believe the country is moving in the right direction, with more than double the number of voters feeling that Mr. Biden’s policies have personally harmed them compared to those who believe his policies have benefited them. Additionally, a majority of voters perceive the economy to be in poor condition, and a significant 47 percent strongly disapprove of Mr. Biden’s job performance, marking his highest disapproval rate in Times/Siena polls during his presidency.

Furthermore, the poll highlights concerning signs of weakness within the Democratic coalition, particularly among key demographics such as women, Black, and Latino voters. While Mr. Biden navigated through early nominating states with minimal opposition, the poll indicates a deep divide within the Democratic Party regarding his potential candidacy for 2024, especially among voters under 45 years old. In contrast, Mr. Trump has successfully unified his party, even amidst an ongoing primary contest.

Among the notable findings is Mr. Trump’s ability to consolidate the Republican base, evident in the fact that he is winning 97 percent of voters who supported him in the previous election, with minimal defection to Mr. Biden. In comparison, Mr. Biden is winning only 83 percent of his 2020 voters, while 10 percent now back Mr. Trump. This disparity underscores the challenge Mr. Biden faces in rallying support within his own party and retaining voter loyalty.

Additionally, the survey highlights a lack of enthusiasm among Democratic primary voters for Mr. Biden, with only 23 percent expressing enthusiasm compared to a higher share of Republicans excited about Mr. Trump. Furthermore, the poll indicates that Mr. Trump’s favorability rating is marginally better than Mr. Biden’s, with both candidates being unpopular choices among voters, reflecting the overall discontent with the current political landscape.

Moreover, the survey delves into the contrasting views of voters regarding the candidates’ policies, with a notable disparity in perceptions of personal benefit between Mr. Trump and Mr. Biden’s policies. Despite these challenges, the Biden campaign remains optimistic that as the election draws closer, more voters will revert to traditional partisan patterns and shift their support back to the Democratic candidate.

In conclusion, the poll results present a complex and challenging landscape for both candidates as they navigate their campaigns in the lead-up to the general election. While Mr. Biden faces skepticism and doubts about his leadership, Mr. Trump has managed to maintain strong support within his party and make inroads into traditional Democratic constituencies. As the election season unfolds, these findings underscore the importance of addressing voter concerns and solidifying support across key demographics to secure a favorable outcome in November.

House speaker receives additional request from GOP member to resign or be ousted

House Speaker Faces New Call by Another Republican to Step Down or Face Removal

House Speaker Johnson says he’s not resigning


House Speaker Mike Johnson says he’s not resigning as momentum grows for ouster

11:15

Washington — House Speaker Mike Johnson is facing a new call by another Republican lawmaker to step down or face removal, but he said Tuesday he’s not resigning.

Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie said Tuesday that he’d co-sponsor a motion to vacate the speaker filed last month by GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia. She laid the groundwork for an eventual vote to strip Johnson of his gavel after he worked with Democrats to approve a government funding package and avert a partial shutdown weeks ago. But Greene has yet to commit to a timeline on calling for a vote on the resolution to remove Johnson.

Massie said he told Johnson in the closed-door Republican conference meeting Tuesday morning that he would co-sponsor the motion to vacate, adding in a post on social media that Johnson “should pre-announce his resignation” so the conference can work on selecting his replacement. But Johnson said at a news conference after the meeting that he is “not resigning,” calling it “an absurd notion” that someone would bring a motion to vacate “when we are simply here trying to do our jobs.”

Speaker Mike Johnson speaks to the press following a House Conference meeting to discuss Iran's attack on Israel at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC.

“It is not helpful to the cause, it is not helpful to the country. It does not help the House Republicans advance our agenda which is in the best interest of the American people here,” Johnson, a Louisiana Republican, said.

Massie predicted to reporters that “the motion will get called, and then he’s gonna lose more votes than Kevin McCarthy,” referencing the former speaker who was ousted from his post in October.

The move came after Johnson unveiled a plan Monday to push forward with four bills to address foreign aid. Although the Senate earlier this year passed a supplemental funding bill to provide aid to U.S. allies that the White House has urged the speaker to take up in the House, Johnson outlined that his plan would separately provide funding for Israel, Ukraine and Taiwan, while another bill would address other GOP foreign policy priorities. The push came after lawmakers expressed new urgency around approving the funds for Israel following unprecedented airstrikes by Iran over the weekend.

Johnson said Tuesday that “we are in unprecedented times,” adding that he regards himself as a “wartime speaker.”

“We need steady leadership, we need steady hands at the wheel,” he said.
