Trump Leads Biden in Polls Just Weeks Before Midterms

( With 76 days until the critical midterm elections, President Joe Biden’s approval rating has continued to rise, but it is unclear what effect this will have on the House and Senate races.

The president’s approval rating is at its highest point since early June, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos survey released on Tuesday, and Biden’s standing is also rising, according to data from poll tracker FiveThirtyEight.

Nevertheless, 76 days before the 2018 midterm elections on November 6, Biden’s approval rating is still lower than that of former President Donald Trump.

The latest Reuters/Ipsos survey is released as Democrats appear to be in for a challenging midterm election and Republicans are still expected to take control of the House of Representatives, even though Biden’s party is still only marginally favored to keep the Senate.

Biden’s approval rating recently rose above 40% in an early June Reuters/Ipsos poll and had previously slipped as low as 36% in four May, June, and July polls.

A total of 1,005 adults, including 458 Democrats and 379 Republicans, participated in the Reuters/Ipsos poll, which had a +/- 4% margin of error.

Biden’s popularity is examined by FiveThirtyEight utilizing a range of surveys and its method of pollster ratings. In contrast to the 54.4 percent who disapproved of his job, it was discovered that the president had a 40.7 percent approval rating as of Tuesday.

That is a significant improvement over the previous month. On July 23, Biden’s approval rating was barely 37.9%, while disapproval was 56.9%, according to FiveThirtyEight.

At the same point in his presidency, Biden’s approval rating is lower than Trump’s.

According to FiveThirtyEight’s analysis, on August 21, 2018, Trump’s approval rating was 41.8 percent, and his disapproval rating was 52.8 percent.

In the 2018 midterm elections, Republicans kept control of the Senate while Democrats retook the House. According to polls, Republicans are expected to win the House this year while Democrats hold onto a narrow Senate majority.

The generic congressional ballot from FiveThirtyEight indicates that Democrats were in a stronger position four years ago than Republicans are now. On the general election ballot as of Tuesday, Democrats received 43.9 percent of the vote, while the GOP received 43.5 percent.

Recent legislative successes, such as the Inflation Reduction Act, which has revived a crucial component of the president’s plan known as Build Back Better, may have caused Biden’s rising popularity ratings.

On November 8, voters can express their opinions on these accomplishments and other topics, such as the economy, inflation, and the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
