A stunning new survey spelled doom for President Joe Biden and his Democratic Party ahead of both the 2022 midterms and the 2024 general election.
The Wall Street Journal survey shows that Biden and Democratic support among white suburban women, who comprise around 20 percent of the electorate, has cratered.
The survey found that the demographic now favors Republicans by 15 points, which is a 26-point swing just since August.
Overall, the survey found that 46 percent of registered voters said they would cast a ballot for the GOP candidate in their district, while 44 percent said they’d vote for the Democrat.
The poll said 66 percent of white suburban women say inflation is causing major financial hardship, up from 54 percent in August. Meanwhile, 54 percent of white suburban women believe that Biden’s economy is in a recession, even if the White House refuses to admit it after two straight quarters of negative growth, the traditional sign of a recession.
And 74 percent of respondents said Biden’s economy is headed the wrong way.
“It’s absolutely true that these women have shifted their gaze more on the economy than abortion,” Democrat pollster Molly Murphy said.
The WSJ poll found that 74 percent of white suburban women say the country is headed in the wrong direction compared to 65 percent who said so in August.
As for 2024, the poll claimed that “if the 2024 election were between Mr. Biden and former President Donald Trump, 41% of white suburban women said they would vote for Mr. Biden and 52% Mr. Trump. In August, 55% said Mr. Biden and 39% Mr. Trump.”
“The focus on the economic stuff, particularly inflation, is helpful to the GOP headed into the final stretch,” pollster Tony Fabrizio, said.
Added the New York Post:
Along with voters’ dour economic outlook, the poll shows that 55% of them disapprove of the job President Biden is doing and 54% believe his policies have had a negative effect on the economy.
Only 27% think Biden’s policies have been positive, while 43% approve of his job performance.
Jennifer Hackworth, a stay-at-home mom of three from outside Pittsburgh, said her kids’ clothes cost more, as do grocery items like milk and other staples.
“The Dems have kind of proved that they haven’t been able to make a change with [inflation]. It’s just gotten worse in the last couple of years,” she told the Journal.
