This is WaPo/ABC, gang. No doubt, it's an outlier, but there's a definite trend now.
Forty-four percent of Americans in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they've gotten worse off financially under Biden's presidency, the most for any president in ABC/Post polls since 1986. Just 37% approve of his job performance, while 56% disapprove. Still fewer approve of Biden's performance on the economy, 30%.
A remarkable 62% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say the party should pick someone other than Biden as its nominee in 2024; just a third back Biden.
Trump has far broader intraparty support; 54% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents favor him for the GOP nomination, again similar to previous results, and well ahead of his opposition.
In terms of sampling, this survey was conducted using the ABC/Post poll's longstanding methodology. Demographic results are typical. So are partisan preferences; 25% of respondents identify themselves as Democrats, 25% as Republicans and 42% as independents.
Among 18- to 35-year-olds, Trump has a slight 53-38% advantage (marginally significant at this sample size).
Trump has gained 7 points from May among men, now a 61-34% result against Biden.
Among the 62% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who oppose Biden for the nomination, 16% say they'd vote for Trump over Biden.
I just can't see America voting to reelect a guy who's earnestly concluding a speech with "God save the Queen, man," reflecting on that song, "Good Morning Vietnam" and confessing that "It's my bedtime." Voters find that stuff out even if Joy, Ari and Rachel do their d@angdest to do a cover-up.
If Trump LOSES the popular vote by 2%, he wins the Electoral College...cheating notwithstanding, of course. If he wins the popular vote? Sheeeeeeeeeeeesh!
