Another new poll gives President Joe Biden and, perhaps, Democrats in general, worse news if the down-ballot race is influenced by the party’s current standard-holder.
A NBC News poll, published Sunday at the end of a Gaff-filled European tour involving Biden to NATO to discuss the ongoing war in Ukraine following Russia’s aggression last month, found that presidential approval fell to 40 percent, the lowest. For that particular outlet since its inauguration.
Also, a staggering 70 percent of Americans surveyed have little faith in Biden’s ability to deal with that conflict.
The Daily Mail continues:
In a new NBC poll, only 40 percent of respondents said they approved the president’s term in the White House, the lowest ever recorded by an outlet survey. Decreased by three points since January.
What could happen to Biden’s chances of re-election is a decline in approval among women voters, black voters and independents – the population that was the key to his 2020 victory.
His denial rating also reached a new high of 55 percent.
The vote took place March 18-22, just before the president’s trip to Europe for a special meeting of NATO allies to discuss Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine.
In addition, the survey asked respondents about “how much confidence” they have in Biden’s ability to deal with Russian aggression. The lion’s share, or 44 percent, said they had “very little” faith in Biden, while only 27 percent said the 71 percent had “just some” confidence in the combination.
“Only 28 percent of Americans surveyed say they shared ‘a lot’ or ‘quite a bit’ of support for Ukraine’s biden’s administration – far from the confidence that the president wanted to project through decades of foreign policy experience in the Senate,” the Daily Mail reports. Although observers in the past, including former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, have said that Biden was “wrong” on almost every major foreign policy issue in his Senate career.
In an October 2021 interview with Anderson Cooper, Gates, who served as Secretary of Defense under President Obama, reiterated earlier claims that Biden’s foreign policy chops did not exist.
Fox News added:
Gates, who has spent nearly three decades at the CIA, was introverted during an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes,” and reporter Anderson Cooper asked about his 2014 memoir, “Duty: Secretary at War Memoirs.” ”
Cooper cited a passage in the book in which Gates called Biden a man of integrity but wrote that he believed he had “made mistakes in almost every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

For the NBC poll, most respondents indicated that Biden’s actions have so far put the United States on a dangerous path to a direct confrontation with Russia, despite the administration’s stated policy of prioritizing de-escalation through diplomacy.
The survey found that 16 percent of Americans say they believe the country is already at war with Russia based on the Biden administration’s handling of the situation. And 44 percent said they see the United States at war with Russia “within the next year.”
Meanwhile, only 34 percent believe the United States and Russia will avoid direct confrontation.
Although Biden and his administration have repeatedly said that there will be no American boots on Ukrainian soil, about three-quarters of respondents – 74 percent – will not buy it. And more than eight in ten have said they believe such a war would be nuclear.
Also, most respondents do not believe the Biden administration’s claim that Russia is responsible for inflation in the United States.
Biden continues to lose ground with women, his approval of that population has dropped from 51 percent in January to 44 percent now. Support among independents fell 4 points to 32 percent, while support for blacks fell from 64 to 62 percent. Over the same period, support among Latino has dropped from 48 percent in January to 39 percent now.
