Joe Biden’s career is in complete collapse.
After nearly a year in office, even Democrats are running away from him.
And now, Biden just got news that could spell the end of his career as a life-long politician.
Joe Biden has been in politics longer than most Americans have been alive.
And yet, he has never received worse news than now.
After a year in office, Biden’s presidency is in a state of complete collapse, with policy failures, strategic losses, and opinion polls all racking up against him in a major way.
And now, the knives are beginning to come out for Biden as Republicans and Democrats alike realize just how vulnerable he is.
RealClearPolitics reports, “Quinnipiac University released its latest survey Thursday inquiring about President Biden’s job approval rating. It stood at just 35%, the lowest measured job approval of his presidency. To put this in perspective, the lowest poll reading Quinnipiac had for Donald Trump was 33%, and the lowest rating he ever received in any poll was 32%.”
Not only are these numbers abysmal, but they could mark the complete destruction of Biden’s Democratic Party at the ballot box in November.
History shows that the president’s party tends to match their approval rating during midterm elections, and 2022 is expected to be no different.
“With both the House and the Senate very narrowly split between the two parties, entering the 2022 elections with a president whose job approval at this level carries catastrophic implications for the Democrats. It isn’t accidental that, in the generic ballot (which asks which party individuals would prefer to control Congress), the Democrats’ current vote share is 42.8%, nearly mimicking Biden’s,” adds RealClearPolitics.
So, what does this mean for Biden and the Democrats?
With Biden polling near the bottom of the barrel in terms of his approval rating, it seems extremely likely that his chief political allies, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, will be out of a job as Senate Majority Leader and Speaker of the House come next January.
What’s more, Democrats could be set up to lose as many as 4 or even 5 seats in the Senate this year, effectively marking the end of Biden’s ability to confirm any more judges, let alone fill any potential vacant Supreme Court seats that may open up between now and 2024.
Even more devastating for Biden is the fact that the Senate map is so lopsidedly hostile to Democrats in 2024 that if they lose control of the Senate this year, the party is expected to have effectively no shot at retaking the upper chamber of Congress until 2026 at the earliest.
“Nonetheless, if the president’s job approval doesn’t improve, his party will find itself in dire straits in the midterms. The good news for Democrats is that there is still time for things to turn around. The bad news is that public perceptions of issues like the economy and the pandemic are relatively slow to do so; the clock is starting to tick,” concludes RealClearPolitics.
