Joe Biden’s poll numbers continue to plummet even in the super blue state of California, with more voters disapproving of his current performance than they do.
A new poll by the UC Berkeley Institute for Government Studies found that the current administration is rapidly losing support, with the approval of Kamala Harris and two Democratic senators from California also declining in the polls.
It’s another terrible signal to the White House and Democrats that they could be subject to a Republican midterm bloodbath.
Party leaders are trying to quickly reformulate their message to address economic issues such as inflation, after Bernie Sanders warned last week: “We don’t care about the needs of the American people.”
A poll of 8,937 registered voters in the Golden State found that 48% currently disapprove of a Biden presidency, compared to 47% who do.
The numbers have dropped significantly since a similar poll was conducted in California in April 2021, when Biden had a 62% approval rating and a 34% disapproval rating.
By July 2021, there were signs that his popularity was starting to decline as his ratings dropped to 59% approval and 37% disapproval.
Joe Biden’s voter numbers continue to plummet even in California’s Blue State, with more voters disapproving of his current performance than they do.
But the latest poll shows a huge twist: More voters dissatisfied with his performance than support the president.
The results reflect a nationwide downward trend in popularity for the Biden administration, with the latest national polls showing, on average, his approval rating dipped below 40 percent for the first time last week.
His mishandling of the Covid pandemic and its attendant mandatory masks and vaccines, rising inflation, critical race theory in schools, and the U.S.-Mexico border crisis have all contributed to his decline in popularity.
In a recent poll in California, Biden received the support of only 72 percent of registered Democrats and 6 percent of Republicans, indicating that his attempt to bridge the partisan divide is not resonating with voters.
The results also show that the age group most likely to be unhappy with the current president is those aged 18 to 29, with only 34 percent of them approving of his performance compared to 53 percent who disapprove.
Adding to Biden’s woes, Kamala Harris, who served as a California senator and attorney general, has even lower ratings in her home state.
Kamala Harris, who served as a California senator and attorney general, has even lower ratings in her home state.
The vice president enjoys the approval of only 38% of voters, 46% do not approve of her work and 16% do not express any opinion.
The numbers are just as dramatic from April 2021, when she received 53% support and only 33% disapproval.
Similarly, Senator Dianne Feinstein, who has been in the state since 1992, has fallen to its lowest approval level.
Only 30 percent of voters in California gave her a positive rating, compared to 49 percent who disapproved of her work.
Mark DiCamillo, poll leader, said of Harris and Feinstein, “I was struck by the discontent of both women.”
Feinstein, now 88, is even more unpopular with female voters.
She repeatedly had to deny retirement rumors and irritated voters by not being tough enough on Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominees in her role as top Democrat on the judiciary committee.
She also struggled to connect with the growing progressive wing of the Democratic Party.
Fellow Senator Alex Padilla failed to make much of an impression on voters, with 40% of no opinion, more than the 34% approval and 26% disapproval he scored.
Overall, political apathy is clearly prevalent in California, with only 20 percent of voters approving of Congress as a whole, compared to 72 percent disapproving.
Real Check Politics took the average of the most recent national polls — 304 polls conducted from January 2020 to this month — that measured Biden’s position. Their cumulative poll showed the president’s approval rating of 39 percent and his disapproval of 54 percent.
Biden’s ratings are falling across the country, with the vast majority of American voters unhappy with rising inflation, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting vaccine and mask mandates, and unrest on the border with Mexico.
After Biden’s nationwide approval ratings topped 50 percent in his early months in office, Biden’s popularity has tumbled since last August as Covid deaths skyrocketed across the country and the US-backed Afghan government collapsed and the subsequent failed exit .

Democrats are increasingly concerned that dissatisfaction with the Biden presidency could cost them their majority in Congress in the Nov. 8 election.
If the Republicans take control of either the House of Representatives or the US Senate, Biden’s legislative agenda could be doomed and he will become a lame duck president.
Democrats are warning their OWN that voters in swing districts view the party as “preaching”, “denouncing” and “focused on culture wars”.
New Democratic Party research warns party members that voters in swing districts see themselves as “preachers,” “denunciators,” involved in “culture wars,” new internal documents showed on Tuesday.
The Congressional Democratic Campaign Committee (DCCC) is warning its members that in order to boost their reputation in the 2022 interim dates, Democratic candidates must respond more vehemently to Republican attacks, documents obtained by Politico say.
A late-January poll of general ballots in swing counties commissioned by the DCCC shows Republicans leading Democrats in battlefield counties by an average of 4 percentage points.
But the same poll shows that Democrats could regain much of their ground if they offered compelling rebuttals to political strikes.
The Republicans’ lead will jump to a whopping 14 points if Democrats completely ignore their attacks, party activists warn in the report. But when voters heard the Democrats’ response to these attacks, the Republican Party’s lead was reduced to 6 points.
The report suggests that Democrats, when faced with attacks they support by defunding the police, should respond by reiterating their support for law enforcement, Politico notes.
Faced with an illegal immigration crisis, the documents urge Democrats to deny they support “an open border or amnesty” and instead talk about their efforts to secure the southern border.
Party officials and operatives, using the results of polls and focus groups, argue that Democrats can no longer ignore the attacks.
A new poll shows that only four states have Joe Biden’s approval rating higher than their disapproval rating – Hawaii, Vermont, Massachusetts and Maryland. However, none of these conditions reach the 50 percent approval threshold.
All swing states have approval ratings around 30 ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
West Virginia has the lowest approval rating at just 16% compared to a whopping 79% disapproval, and Wyoming comes in second with just 18% approval.
