U.S. voters may be experiencing buyer’s remorse when it comes to President Biden, according to a newly released poll.
A Rasmussen Reports survey posted Wednesday found that “if the next presidential election were held today,” 37% of likely U.S. voters would support Mr. Biden and 43% would back former President Donald Trump, while 14% would vote for another candidate.
“Among voters who say they voted for Biden in last year’s election, 12% now say they regret their vote,” tweeted Rasmussen. “By comparison, only two percent (2%) of Trump voters now regret their vote.”
Crosstabs posted by The National Pulse show that 45% of those polled said they voted for Mr. Biden and 45% backed Mr. Trump, meaning that both political figures have since experienced a dip in support, but Mr. Biden‘s decline has been greater.
If a 2020 rematch were held today, “Trump would win, because only 79% of Biden voters say they would vote for him again and seven percent (7%) would switch their vote to Trump,” tweeted Rasmussen.
The national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters was taken Aug. 16-17, a low point for Mr. Biden amid heavy press coverage and criticism of his administration’s botched exit from Afghanistan and the Taliban takeover.
