Pennsylvania Poll: Mehmet Oz in Statistical Tie with John Fetterman 

Pennsylvania Poll: Mehmet Oz in Statistical Tie with John Fetterman 

Mehmet Oz, the Trump-endorsed Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, is in a statistical tie with Democrat John Fetterman, the state’s lieutenant governor, according to a poll.

Oz earned the support of 42 percent of likely Pennsylvania voters in the most recent Insider Advantage poll. On the other hand, Fetterman finished just above Oz, coming in at 45 percent.

However, the race is in a statistical deadlock because Fetterman’s narrow advantage is within the poll’s ±4.2 percent margin of error.

Oz’s stride in the polls is significant because he was previously down by as much as 11 points in earlier polls.

Insider Advantage’s survey of 550 likely voters from September 23 to September 24 also found that eight percent of Pennsylvanians remain undecided with less than two months to go until the November midterms.

These latest poll numbers came just days after Fetterman’s campaign sounded the alarm after being out-fundraised and outspent by Oz and other pro-Oz super PACs.

Fetterman campaign manager Brendan McPhillips recently issued a “wake-up call” in an internal memo that warned Republicans are “significantly outspending us and out-communicating on the airwaves.”

Fetterman’s internal polling looks similar to Insider Advantage’s recent poll, as McPhillips warned in his memo that Fetterman is “neck and neck with Oz.”

Insider Advantage Chairman Matt Towery said the latest numbers from Pennsylvania indicate “a tight race” between Oz and Fetterman.

“Senior voters and women favor Fetterman by more than ten points, while men and voters under the age of 65 more likely to vote for Oz. Voters who describe themselves as independent split evenly between the two major candidates,” Towery said. “The percent of undecided voters remains relatively high, and the percent of undecided independent voters is usually high at 22 percent.”

Fetterman, who has struggled with speech issues since having a stroke in May, finally agreed to debate Oz next month on October 25, two weeks from the midterm elections and more than one month after Pennsylvanias begin early voting.

Formal IRS Complaint Filed Against Good Information Foundation After Whistleblower Claims Election Activity

Formal IRS Complaint Filed Against Good Information Foundation After Whistleblower Claims Election Activity

Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow announced Monday that he filed a formal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) complaint against the George Soros-backed Good Information Foundation for allegedly attempting to tamper with the 2022 midterm elections.

Marlow made the announcement during an appearance on the Charlie Kirk Show, stating that the tax-exempt organization appears to be participating in activities that violate federal law prohibiting 501(c)(3) organizations from “directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign.” Kirk called the official complaint a potential “marker in the sand” because the onus rests with the IRS now that the agency has been officially notified.

LISTEN: 

“So earlier today, I filed a complaint, yes as a journalist but also as an American individual who thinks that this is clear corruption, and I don’t trust the government to look into it unless someone like me reaches out,” Marlow said.

Marlow filed the complaint less than a week after attorney and legal commentator Preston Moore posted a video saying he was offered, and rejected, $400 by the “Good Information Foundation” to make a video attacking Donald Trump and “Trump Republicans.” The foundation allegedly wanted Moore to create the video about January 6 and post it on his social media platforms to reach the widest possible audience.

“It became really clear that … they wanted me to use the most graphic images possible,” Moore told Breitbart News. “They wanted me to use fear to manipulate people into voting blue, or into voting not Trump. … And when they’re giving examples of the things they wanted me to say — don’t say ‘Trump and his allies,’ say ‘Trump Republicans’ — it became really clear that this was about putting out information … to impact midterms.”

Marlow said if what Moore said is true, “we are seeing flagrant violations of 501(c)(3) rules that forbid people from participating in politics, both directly or indirectly. And you would think that in an era where we are talking about adding 87,000 new IRS agents, this would be front and center for the IRS.”

As Breitbart News previously reported, the Good Information Foundation’s website states that it is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm of Good Information Inc., “a public benefit corporation committed to restoring social trust and strengthening democracy by investing in solutions that counter disinformation and increase the flow of good information online.” Good Information Inc., which is backed by billionaires Reid Hoffman, George Soros, and others was established in 2021 to fund media companies and “efforts that tackle disinformation,” Axios reported in October 2021.

The organization’s 501(c)(3) status is especially notable because the designation is typically reserved for organizations that serve a noble public interest, such as public education and charitable work. A 501(c)(3) designation allows these organizations to forgo paying taxes on revenue and allows donors to write off donations.

Breitbart News previously asked the IRS if the Good Information Foundation’s alleged activities put the organization in violation of 501(c)(3) rules. The IRS said it could not comment on the legality of an organization’s actions without an official audit and pointed to the aforementioned federal statute.

“He said specifically that he was paid to go after Trump Republicans and MAGA Republicans. He specifically used the word ‘midterms.’ So he was being told by this organization — if he is to be believed, and there is no reason not to believe him based on this — he was being told to meddle in the 2022 elections and use tax-exempt status to do that, to explicitly help Democrat candidates,” Marlow explained.

“This is just really explicit — way over the top — in clear violations of everything we know to be on the books,” he added.

A Tangled Web

Kirk described the Good Information Foundation and other similar organizations as operating “kind of like a traveling circus”  or a “build-a-tent-and-collapse-it model.”

Good Information Inc. appears to be a reiteration of ACRONYM, which was partly funded by Laurene Powell Jobs and Reid Hoffman. Notably, Hoffman has a history of funding organizations accused of election tampering. He previously issued an apology in 2018 following news that he spent $750,000 funding an organization that used tactics modeled on Russian influence operations to spread disinformation about the Republican candidate, Roy Moore, on Facebook and Linkedin. ACRONYM operated Courier Newsroom, which is a network of left-wing media websites posing as local news sources and was notorious for funding Shadow Inc., the Democrat Party-contracted firm that delayed reporting during the Iowa caucus.

Axios reported in October of 2021 that Good Information Inc., also backed by Hoffman and Soros among others, acquired ACRONYM for “an undisclosed sum.” The founder and CEO of Good Information Inc., former Democrat strategist Tara McGowan, also happens to be the founder and CEO of ACRONYM and the publisher of Courier Newsroom.

Good Information Inc. and Good Information Foundation appear to be dealing with tens of millions of dollars, though there is not much information on the organization’s financial records. Vox’s Recode reported in February of 2021 that McGowan was trying to raise $65 million for Good Information Inc. and the nonprofit, which was, at that point, named the “Good Information Project.” McGowan had reportedly denied that the corporation was building a nonprofit arm to Axios in October of 2021, but received its 501(c)(3) status from the IRS in April of 2022.

As an added bonus, RC Di Mezzo, former national press secretary for the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, left the super PAC to work as the Director of Communications for Good Information Inc. Di Mezzo worked with the Lincoln Project during its tiki torch hoax, in which operatives attempted to link Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin to white supremacists in the days leading up to Youngkin’s election.

Marlow said swamp creatures in Washington, DC, think these mercurial organizations are “a genius model and they all get in on it, and then the billionaire class recruits other billionaires to engage in this activity.”

“They only got their 501(c)(3) status in April of this year. So they got right down to business knowing that they were going to be able to influence this election before any investigation took place,” Marlow alleged. “Even if the IRS does look into them — and I’m not holding my breath, though I hope they do — there is no way we are going to have a conclusion before they have already interfered in the election. This is the design: they keep designing new places and new ways to get this billionaire cash.”

Marlow added that these billionaires have “tipped their hand” a number of times already and have “suggested on many occasions that they … try to achieve their political aims by any means necessary.”

“This is a phrase you hear constantly uttered by the left that you never hear by the right, so I take them at their word,” he continued. “They are willing to corrupt the entire American system and they are willing to buy votes. They are willing to, in the most Orwellian way possible, get people to claim they are fighting misinformation while blatantly lying to the public as is the case here with Preston Moore.”

Breitbart News has previously reached out to the Good Information Foundation for comment and asked if the accusations are true and if the organization has contacted others similarly or used the same approach against other public officials or candidates. The organization has not responded.

Exclusive — The Power of the Purse: McCarthy Says ‘Every Means Possible’ on Table for GOP to Roll Biden with Leverage

Exclusive — The Power of the Purse: McCarthy Says ‘Every Means Possible’ on Table for GOP to Roll Biden with Leverage

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania — House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart News exclusively that all options are on the table when it comes to how a Republican majority next would pressure Democrat President Joe Biden to achieve the GOP “Commitment to America” agenda and roll back the Biden agenda.

“We’re going to use every means possible to have the pressure to implement the Commitment to America and at the same time put America back on the right track,” McCarthy said. “This runaway spending that the Democrats have been doing — you’ve got to rein it in. You have to be willing to do that.”

McCarthy’s interview came Thursday evening before a Friday morning rollout of the House Republican “Commitment to America” agenda ahead of the midterm elections. If the GOP retakes the House majority in November, McCarthy is the easy favorite to lead the chamber as the next Speaker of the House.

Specifically, McCarthy said, House Republicans are prepared to use the power of the purse — the Appropriations process by which Congress disburses money for the government to spend — to implement the agenda. McCarthy also pointed to using the Congressional Review Act to claw back regulations the Biden administration has put in place. And if Republicans get control of the U.S. Senate as well, he suggested reconciliation as a possibility to force bills onto Biden’s desk for the president to either veto or sign. McCarthy said House Republicans are preparing for all scenarios, hoping they have the Senate as well, but ready to rock and roll if they just get the House.

“There are a number of areas you can do it in,” McCarthy said. “But what you really need to have happen is we need to win the House and the Senate. So the day after the election, we’re preparing for both items, right? Do we just win the House? Or if we win the House and the Senate, we have more options. You have the Congressional Review Act. You can repeal regulations within a specific timeframe with just 51 votes in the Senate. We’re preparing for a number of those. You have the Appropriations process where you can go through to be able to do this. But if we win both of them, you also have reconciliation where we can go through and put something on his desk in the process.”

McCarthy’s comments come after Biden warned two weeks ago that if the GOP takes both chambers of Congress in November, he will be facing a “difficult two years” and expects to spend much time “with the veto pen.”

“If we lose the House and we lose the Senate, it’s going to be a really difficult two years,” Biden told donors this month according to the Associated Press. “I’ll be spending more time with the veto pen than getting anything done.”

Asked about the big “bipartisan” bills that have been passing Congress with universal Democrat support, but also big groups of Republican support in the Senate, McCarthy predicted that that would end if and when Republicans retake the House. He also noted that up-and-coming Republican Senate candidates this year are much bolder than outgoing GOP establishment senators, so he expects that mindset of seeking deals with Democrats to fade next year.

“I don’t think you’re going to see that out of the Senate. I really like the candidates I see going. If they get the majority, that all stops,” McCarthy said. “You also need to think about — is the Senate going to generate or is the House? We’re the only ones with the plan. You’ve got to realize the Democrats have no plan. They created these problems with no plan to fix them.”

McCarthy noted that the reason those types of bills are passing this Congress is because Democrats know they need to work around the filibuster so they generate bills mostly from the Senate to get them past the filibuster and get at least ten Republicans on board — then have the House pass them. That dynamic, he said, will shift next year as he said the House will be generating the bulk of the bills.

“Now the House is sending it to them,” McCarthy said, referring to how he expects next year’s Congress to work. “If they send that from the Senate to the House it’s not going anywhere. That’s why the House is so important. That’s why all your viewers and listeners go to TaketheHouse.com, and they need to join with us. It’s not just putting it out there, it’s join with us and not just join with us on election but help us get this through. We’ll get it through the House, but we’ll need their help getting it through the Senate.”

McCarthy said that if Republicans take the Senate as well, the fight shifts immediately purely onto Biden and his agenda. But if they take just the House, he predicted the heat will be on a battle between the two chambers — and looking down Pennsylvania Avenue at the White House. Having both chambers, McCarthy said, will allow the Republicans more leverage, including on things Senate confirmation fights.

“If we end up with just the House, this is where the battle is going to be,” McCarthy said. “They’re going to come after us every step of the way. But they already do this to us now. The difference now is we are going to have committees. We have a responsibility for a check and balance. They’re not just going to have free rein anymore. I suspect that [Dr. Anthony] Fauci will resign before we’re sworn in. If we win the House and the Senate, and he resigns, his replacement will need to get confirmed and that gives us a lot of ability to help get in the Commitment to America.”

Exclusive— Kevin McCarthy: Democrat ESG Energy Crisis ‘Just Wrong’; Republicans to Lower Gas Prices

Exclusive— Kevin McCarthy: Democrat ESG Energy Crisis ‘Just Wrong’; Republicans to Lower Gas Prices

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania — House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that the Democrat ESG [Environmental, Social, and Governance] energy agenda is “just wrong” and that a House Republican majority would bring down energy prices.

McCarthy spoke to Breitbart News ahead of the unveiling of the House Republican agenda, the Commitment to America. One of the core planks of the Commitment to America agenda is ensuring a strong economy.

Instead of enacting policies to lower gas prices, House Democrats have held hearings that have blamed oil and natural gas prices for the soaring energy prices under President Joe Biden’s watch.

Instead, McCarthy said that the Commitment to America agenda would lower gas prices.

“We’ve watched what the Democrats and Biden have done to our gasoline costs, but here we are going into winter, home heating is up three, four, or five times. That is what’s wrong. We will bring that cost down. We’ll let you keep more of what you’ve earned,” the California conservative said.

“We want to change all that. And that’s what we’re talking about here — how the commitment to America has a plan for each challenge to make our economy stronger. That means stopping inflation, bringing the price of fuel down, making our community safe,” he added.

House Republicans believe that they unleash American energy production and make America the largest energy producer in the world again, as it was under former President Donald Trump. The House Republican energy plan includes:

  • Maximizing the production of American-made energy
  • Cutting the permitting process in half to reduce reliance on foreign countries
  • Lower the cost of gas and utility bills

As part of ensuring a strong economy, Republicans remain committed to lowering gas prices, as Democrats in Congress and the Biden administration, as well as many corporations, have pushed Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) policies that would push America away from less expensive and more reliable energy such as natural gas to unstable and more expensive energy sources such as solar and wind.

The House Republican Study Committee (RSC) has proposed other potential solutions to lower energy prices by curbing the ESG movement. Congressional Democrats, the Democrat-led Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the world’s largest asset managers, BlackRock, StateStreet, and Vanguard, have pushed the ESG movement. Principally, these Wall Street firms push investors into “socially responsible funds” to invest in funds based on criteria such as greenhouse gas emissions or a CEO’s compensation.

The Biden White House has deep ties to BlackRock.

Brian Deese, Biden’s chair of the National Economic Council (NEC), also led BlackRock’s Global Head of Investing. As Consumers’ Research put it, Deese helped advance the ESG agenda.

House Republicans have proposed many solutions to curb the ESG movement:

Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY) and Rep. Rick Allen (R-GA) proposed the Ensuring Sound Guidance (ESG) Act, which would force investment advisers and ERISA plan sponsors to prioritize maximizing financial returns over “fake ESG factors.”

Reps. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) and McHenry proposed H.J. Res. 88, which would eliminate the SEC’s proposed regulation on climate risk disclosures.

Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI) proposed the Corporate Governance Reform and Transparency Act, which would rein in proxy advisers such as ISS and Glass Lewis by requiring these proxy advisers to register with the SEC, disclose conflicts of interest, and make their methodologies public.

Reps. Huizenga and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) introduced the House version of the INDEX ACT, which would empower American investors by giving them a seat at the table and providing transparency in the corporate governance system.

Consumers’ Research, a nonprofit advocacy group, has worked tirelessly to raise awareness of how these large Wall Street firms have raised energy prices.

As part of its campaign to raise awareness, Consumers’ Research advocated that:

  • Retail investors reconsider using BlackRock’s services, especially any passive investing funds such as the iShares fund brand and consider alternatives that do not abuse their fiduciary role.
  • Employees should consider contacting their human resources department to see if BlackRock manages their company’s 401(k) accounts or pension funds.
  • Individuals with state or municipal pensions should contact state officials to find out if any portion of their pension fund is managed by BlackRock.

McCarthy said that the Democrat agenda, which has led to higher inflation and higher energy prices, has sapped Americans’ ability to save and make ends meet. He said the Commitment to America agenda would work to end that.

“Today, through all the voters should be asked this question, could you give up one month of your wages 90% of Americans say no, they couldn’t afford it. But you know, the sad thing about it, it’s already been taken from them. Because inflation is above 8.3 percent,” McCarthy explained. “It’s taken a full month of your wages. Now you have to live an entire year, with only 11 months of your pay. We want to change all that. And that’s what we’re talking about here how the commitment to America has a plan for each challenge to make our economy stronger. That means stop inflation, bring the price of fuel down, make our communities safe.”

Maine Democrat Mills’ Education Dept. Refuses to Remove Video Calling ‘MAGA’ Covert Racism, White Supremacy

Maine Democrat Mills’ Education Dept. Refuses to Remove Video Calling ‘MAGA’ Covert Racism, White Supremacy

The Maine Department of Education has doubled down on allowing one of its taxpayer-funded online learning programs to instruct high school students that the term “MAGA” is an example of covert racism and white supremacy.

The department, under the leadership of Gov. Janet Mills (D), refused to remove or condemn the controversial video content uncovered Wednesday by Breitbart News, according to a response from the department published Friday in the Bangor Daily News.

“Pushed about whether state officials had endorsed the content of the video or reviewed it before it was included in the module, [Education Department spokesman Marcus] Mrowka said it is parents, teachers, community members and school boards who decide what is taught in the classroom, not the department,” the Bangor Daily News reported.

The Education Department’s Maine Online Opportunities for Sustained Education (MOOSE), funded by President Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan” and approved by the federal government, offers a number of online modules to students.

The module in question, a publicly available lesson geared toward high schoolers on what makes communities “welcoming and inclusive,” featured a video on slide 19 describing “MAGA,” “All Lives Matter,” “colorblindness,” and dozens more mainstream and ideological terms and concepts as examples of “covert racism and white supremacy.”

A screenshot from the video is below:

The video within the module was created by the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine.

Mrowka noted to the Bangor Daily News the fact that the Education Department did not create the video in the module and that students are not required to watch it in classrooms.

“MAGA” was the slogan of former President Donald Trump’s successful 2016 presidential campaign. More than 60 million Americans voted for Trump in 2016, including more than 360,000 Mainers, which is 44 percent of those who voted in the state that year.

The Maine GOP called the discovery that the Mills administration was teaching that “MAGA” is covert racism and white supremacy a “truly shocking development about Maine’s ultra-progressive governor” amid Mills running in a tight reelection race against former Gov. Paul LePage (R).

The Republican Governors Association (RGA) also chastised Mills for the “woke curriculum … that teaches kids that they are inherently racist for the beliefs they or their parents support.”

Mrowka dismissed the outrage over the lesson as mere campaign “attacks,” telling the Bangor Daily News, “​​The Department of Education will continue to empower teachers, parents and elected school boards to make their own decisions about public education in Maine, despite attacks like these.”

The Education Department’s approach to the slide conflicts with the department’s approach to the last controversial lesson discovered within MOOSE’s learning modules.

That MOOSE module, uncovered in May and geared toward kindergartens, contained content about transgenderism and gay relationships and was promptly removed once news broke of its existence.

A Mills spokesperson told the Portland Press Herald at the time, “The governor was not aware of the lesson, but she understands the concerns expressed about the age appropriateness, and agrees with the Department of Education’s decision to remove the lesson.”

Breitbart News reached out to the Education Department and Mills’ office multiple times for comment on the new module and the department’s refusal to remove the module video but received no response.

“Janet Mills thinks people who supported the Republican nominee for President in 2016 and 2020 are racists,” RGA spokesman Will Reinert said in a statement. “This is the second time we’ve seen the Millis [sic] administration push a woke curriculum on students and voters won’t forget she’s more loyal to the most extreme wing of her party than mainstream Mainers.”

Just Go: Poll Shows Democrats Want Anybody but Joe Biden for 2024

Just Go: Poll Shows Democrats Want Anybody but Joe Biden for 2024

Anybody but Joe. That is the simple message a clear majority of Democrats delivered in an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday, indicating the party should replace President Joe Biden as its nominee for president in 2024.

The polling figures come ahead of November’s midterm elections which already promise to be a litmus test of both the president’s overall appeal and the party’s hopes of control in the House and Senate, as both chambers barely have a majority.

Looking two years further down the track, just 35 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents favor Biden for the 2024 nomination; 56 percent want the party to pick someone else.

Put simply, Democratic supporters are telling Biden if he cannot carry them with him he has no chance of winning over the country in 2024.

The poor polling numbers are nothing new, as Breitbart News has reported, with Biden’s casting of his GOP opponents as somehow a threat to democracy seen as an unacceptable smear.

The president’s standing customarily is critical to his party’s fortunes in midterms — and Biden is well under water. Thirty-nine percent of Americans approve of his job performance while 53 percent disapprove, about where he’s been steadily the past year, the poll shows.

Specifically on the economy, with inflation near a 40-year high, his approval rating is 36 percent while 57 percent disapprove — a 21-point deficit.

Overall economic management is a key point of voter disapproval of Biden and his administration.

The poll shows 74 percent say the economy is in bad shape, up from 58 percent in the spring after Biden took office, with Biden’s handling of inflation cast as a disaster time and time again – by his own supporters and GOP opponents alike.

The GOP leads the Democrats by 16 points in trust to handle the economy overall and by 19 points in trust to handle inflation.

Equally important, 84 percent call the economy a top issue in their vote for Congress and 76 percent say the same about inflation. Many fewer, 62 percent, call abortion a top issue.

Read the full polling figures here.

This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Sept. 18-21, 2022, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 1,006 adults, including 908 registered voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 percentage points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions in the full sample are 28%-24%-41%, Democrats-Republicans-independents, and 27%-26%-40% among registered voters.

Rasmussen Poll: Republicans Lead Generic Congressional Ballot by 2 Points

Rasmussen Poll: Republicans Lead Generic Congressional Ballot by 2 Points

The Republican candidates lead the Democrats on the generic congressional ballot by two points, according to Rasmussen Reports’ weekly poll released Friday.

The poll was released on Friday, 46 days before the election, as the Republicans look to retake control of Congress. The Rasmussen Reports survey showed that the generic GOP candidates are only two points ahead, which is only one point better than last week, when the Democrats were only behind by one point.

Forty-two percent of likely U.S. voters said they would elect a Republican, while 42 percent said they would vote for the Democrat. Five percent said they would vote for another candidate, and the other nine said they were unsure.

Nevertheless, the two-point lead is only slightly better than last week and just in the two-point margin or error. This has occurred less than two months out from the election, meaning the poll has the possibility of shifting either way before November; however, the Republicans have led on the generic ballot all year.

Rasmussen noted that in September 2018 — before Democrats took the House for the first time in eight years — they had a three-point advantage on the generic congressional ballot, 46 percent to 43 percent. But as the 2018 November midterm election neared, the margins between Democrats and Republicans became extremely close: Republicans had 46 percent to 45 percent for Democrats — which is what the generic ballot is currently showing.

In this poll, the Republican party showed a narrow lead with independents over Democrats. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 35 percent said they would vote for the GOP candidate, while only 33 percent said they would vote for the Democrat candidate.

Additionally, 22 percent of black voters and 42 percent of other minority groups said they would vote for the Republican candidate if the election were held today. A Democrat candidate would garner support from 59 percent of black voters and 41 percent of other minority groups.

Furthermore, there is a difference in voter intensity between the parties, with 89 percent of Republican voters saying they would vote for their own party’s congressional candidate and only 85 percent of Democrats saying the same thing.

The Rasmussen Reports survey was conducted from September 18 to 22 and questioned 2,500 likely United States voters. The survey had a two percent margin of error and a 95 percent confidence level.

Survey: Joe Biden’s Approval Underwater on Every Key Issue

Survey: Joe Biden’s Approval Underwater on Every Key Issue

President Joe Biden’s approval rating is underwater on every key issue listed in the latest The Economist/YouGov survey.

The survey, taken September 17-20, 2022, among 1,500 U.S. adult citizens, found Biden’s overall approval underwater by seven percent, as a majority, 51 percent, find him unfavorable, compared to 44 percent who view him favorably. The gap grows even more when respondents were asked if they approve or disapprove of the way Biden is handling his job as president — 51 percent disapproving and 42 percent approving. 

It does not end there, however. The survey also asked respondents to rate the president on a variety of issues, but on every single issue listed in the poll, Biden’s approval rating is completely underwater. For instance, he has a net negative approval on jobs and the economy, as 41 percent approve, compared to 48 percent who disapprove. 

His net approval on immigration is even worse. He is underwater by 20 percentage points, as 53 percent disapprove, and 33 percent approve. 

This trend continues on every other issue listed.

Abortion:
35 percent approve
48 percent disapprove

Civil Rights:
40 percent approve
41 percent disapprove

Civil liberties:
39 percent approve
41 percent disapprove

Crime:
35 percent approve
47 percent disapprove

Criminal Justice Reform:
33 percent approve
47 percent disapprove

Most, 52 percent, doubt Biden cares about the needs and problems of “people like you.” Of those, 38 percent said he “doesn’t care at all,” and 14 percent said “not much.” Further, 58 percent tend to believe Biden is a “weak” leader, and a plurality–46 percent–are “pessimistic” about the next few years with Biden at the helm. 

The survey has a +/- 2.9 percent margin of error and coincides with the findings of a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll, which found former President Donald Trump still outperforming Biden on a range of issues as well.  

A recent survey from The Economist/YouGov showed Biden’s approval completely underwater on the issue of crime, as 33 percent approve, and 47 percent disapprove. 

The president’s abysmal approval ratings come weeks ahead of the midterm elections, and Democrats hope to disassociate themselves from the social and economic woes that have occurred under the Biden administration.
