New Poll Shows Biden Far Behind Trump’s Previous Polling

( A Harvard/Harris survey conducted in late October reveals that Joe Biden’s handling of key issues is polling far below that of Donald Trump’s polling conducted in January 2021.

Across the board, Biden is doing far worse in every key area except one – the COVID pandemic.

When it comes to the economy, Joe Biden’s approval in this recent poll was an anemic 40 percent whereas, in January, 56 percent of respondents approved of the job former President Trump did on the economy.

On job creation, Biden receives 44 percent approval – far below the 58 percent approval Trump received in January.

And the list goes on.

On terrorism, Biden had 39 percent approval compared to Trump’s 55 percent approval.

Only 35 percent approve of Biden’s handling Immigration. Trump, on the other hand, scored 52 percent approval in January.

Biden’s approval on foreign affairs stands at 39 percent. In January 2021, President Trump’s approval on foreign affairs was 52 percent.

The closest their polling comes is on administering the government. Biden clocked in with 42 percent approval to Trump’s 49 percent approval back in January.

The only issue Biden scores higher than Trump is “reacting to the coronavirus.” Biden has 50 percent approval in the Harvard/Harris poll, Trump’s approval in January 2021 was 47 percent.

The January poll did not ask about Afghanistan. But in the current poll, respondents were asked about Biden’s handling of Afghanistan. Unsurprisingly, Afghanistan gave Biden his lowest approval rating – only 33 percent.

Overall, the Harvard/Harris poll has Biden’s approval at 43 percent with 51 percent disapproving. Trump’s approval in January 2021 was 44 percent.

The survey also asked respondents whom they would vote for if the election were held today between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Biden barely edged out Trump 46 percent to 45 percent.

Respondents were also asked to rate Congress. Only 31 percent of respondents approve of the job Congress is doing. Of those, only 11 percent “strongly approve.” Meanwhile, 32 percent of respondents said they “strongly disapprove.”

When asked if they would vote for a Republican or a Democrat if the 2022 midterms were held today, 45 percent said Republican, 42 percent said Democrat.
