According to a new NBC News election poll, former President Donald Trump is beating President Joe Biden for the first time this election cycle by two percentage points nationwide.
NBC News reported, “[T]he poll finds Biden behind former President Donald Trump for the first time in a hypothetical general-election matchup, although the deficit is well within the poll’s margin of error for a contest that’s still more than 11 months away.”
President Biden’s most significant loss of supporters comes from Democrats angry at his handling of the Israel war and shockingly 70% of Democrat voters ages 18-34 strongly disapproved of his job performance.
“I do not support his support of Israel,” a Democrat voter told NBC News. Another Democrat voter cited his “failed promises, student loans, foreign policy in general.”
According to Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt, Biden’s foreign policy decisions is driving his poll numbers lower and lower. “Joe Biden is at a uniquely low point in his presidency, and a significant part of this, especially within the Biden coalition, is due to how Americans are viewing his foreign policy actions. This poll is a stunner, and it’s stunning because of the impact the Israel-Hamas war is having on Biden,” Horwitt explained.
NBC News also reported, “In another low for the president, just 33% of all voters approve of Biden’s handling of foreign policy, which is down 8 points from September. That compares with 62% of voters, including 30% of Democrats, who say they disapprove of the president’s handling of foreign policy.”
Biden’s poor foreign policy is not only bad for his reelection, it also opens the door to any potential Democratic candidate seeking to challenge him in a primary.
In a recent poll published by Marquette Law School, Biden not only loses to Trump in a general election, he would lose to the top 3 Republican candidates as well. At this point the Democrats are very concerned and most likely entertaining the option of another candidate running for President, maybe Gov. Gavin Newsom?
