MADISON — Things just keep getting worse for President Joe Biden in Wisconsin, as things get worse for the country under the Democrat’s leadership.
Biden’s approval rating in the Badger State stands at an abysmal 42%, with 57% of respondents disapproving of his performance, according to the latest Marquette University Law School poll.
The Democrat’s approval rating is at its lowest level, plummeting 16 percentage points since his high water mark of 58% (42% disapproval) in July. He’s been under water since September.
Meanwhile, fewer voters like Biden. The latest Marquette Law School poll, conducted May 9-19, finds Biden’s favorability rating at 40%, with 55% of respondents holding an unfavorable opinion of the president. His favorability numbers have declined 5 percentage points since November.
There’s definitely an enthusiasm gap between the right and the left.
The poll finds about two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they are very or somewhat enthusiastic about voting in November’s election. Republicans are more enthusiastic, with 82 percent of registered voters at least somewhat looking forward to voting compared to 76 percent of Democrats. Independents lag well behind both parties, with 50 percent of respondents expressing at least some enthusiasm to vote in November.
With less than six months before the congressional midterms, a Rasmussen Reports national poll released Thursday finds Republicans are more fired up than Dems about voting.
The survey shows 76% of likely U.S. voters are excited to vote in the midterm elections, including 49% who are very excited.
But Biden is very much a drag on enthusiasm, and that bodes poorly for Democrats on November’s ballot.
“60% of Voters who Strongly Approve of Biden are very excited to vote this fall. 61% of those who Strongly Disapprove are too. But there are over 2X as many voters who Strongly Disapprove,” Rasmussen tweeted.
