Democrat President Joe Biden’s approval rating is so low that he now has a lower approval rating than every governor in the U.S., and his approval rating has dipped to as low as 18% in one state.

According to a recent Morning Consult poll, five of the six least popular governors in the U.S. are Democrats, with Oregon Democrat Governor Kate Brown having the lowest approval rating of 43%.

A recent poll from Civiqs, an online polling and analytics company, found that Biden’s approval rating is 37%, with his lowest marks coming in from West Virginia.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll released in mid-November found that if the midterms were held today, registered voters would vote for Republican candidates for Congress over the Democrat candidates for Congress by a staggering 10-point margin at 51% to 41%. The Washington Post called the findings a “historically strong result for Republicans.”

Many political pundits have already stated confidently that they believe Democrats will get blown out in the midterms in the House of Representatives, and while the 2022 U.S. Senate map did not look favorable for Republicans at the start of the Biden administration, the poll now suggests that Democrats could be in serious trouble in Senate races in competitive states.

The poll stated:

Evaluating survey results in just eight states expected to have the most competitive Senate races – four currently held by Democrats, four by Republicans – raises further hope for the GOP and risk for the Democratic Party.

In these states – Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – Biden’s overall job approval rating is 33 percent, compared with 43 percent elsewhere. On his handling of the pandemic, his approval is 11 points lower than in the rest of the country.

Residents of these states also are less inclined to back their incumbent House member rather than to look around for someone new to support, 19 vs. 28 percent. And registered voters in these states favor Republicans over Democrats for the House by a 23-point margin, 58-35 percent, vs. 7 points, 49-42 percent, in the rest of the country.

“70 percent rate the economy negatively, including 38 percent who say it is in ‘poor’ condition,” The Washington Post added. “About half of Americans overall and political independents blame Biden for fast-rising inflation, and more than 6 in 10 Americans say he has not accomplished much after 10 months in office, including 71 percent of independents.”

Politico reported this week that internal polling from Democrat strategists showed that what the strategists found was “worse than expected” and that the party’s “entire brand was a wreck.”

The report said that a Democrat strategist who advises the party’s major donors said after the House passed Biden’s massive far-left social spending bill that it was “[t]oo late. We’re f***ed.”
