OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion

Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to a shocking new low in recent months.

Quinnipiac University poll found that Americans are growing frustrated over Biden’s handling of the pandemic.


The poll asked: “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Joe Biden is handling the response to the coronavirus?”

Since May, Biden’s numbers have dropped a whopping 12 points, from 65 percent down to 53 percent.

The Western Journal summarized the findings of the poll:

-Republicans disapproved of Biden on the issue by a margin of 76 percent to 14 percent, with 10 percent of GOP respondents not answering the question.

-Only seven percent of Democrats disapproved of Biden’s handling of COVID, while 92 percent approved and only 1 percent refused to answer the question.

-Fifty-four percent of independent voters said they approved of Biden on COVID, while 39 percent disapproved. Seven percent of unaffiliated voters did not answer one way or the other.

-Seventy-six percent of black respondents said they approved of Biden on his handling of COVID, while 51 percent of Hispanics answered the same way. Fifty percent of white respondents said they approved of Biden on the issue.

Needless to say, this is a rough week for the White House.

According to a survey from Rasmussen Reports, a whopping 90 percent of American voters are concerned with election cheating.


The poll also found that 74 percent of Americans support voter ID.

The report added:

Voters overwhelmingly believe it’s important to prevent cheating in elections and agree that requiring photo identification is a reasonable measure to ensure election integrity.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 90% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is important to prevent cheating in elections, including 79% who say it’s Very Important.

Only seven percent (7%) of voters believe it’s not important to prevent election cheating.

Another Rasmussen poll found that most voters agree with Donald Trump on the need for state election reforms.

The poll found that 61 percent of likely voters agree with a statement Trump issued on his website, which said: “Election Reform must happen in Swing States like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona where voters have lost confidence in their electoral process.”


Rasmussen reported:

-That includes 42% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-four percent (34%) of voters disagree with Trump’s statement, including 25% who Strongly Disagree.

-The percentage of voters agreeing with Trump’s statement was larger than those agreeing with a quote from a recent speech by Biden, who said America is “facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.” Fifty-six percent (56%) agree with Biden, including 33% who Strongly Agree.

-Thirty-seven percent (37%) disagree with Biden, including 26% who strongly disagree.

Late last month, a poll found that one-third of Americans believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election because of fraud, according to a new Monmouth University poll.

The poll found that 32 percent of respondents believe fraud was the reason Biden won the presidential election.


Sixty-three percent of GOP voters and Republican-leaning voters say that Biden was not legitimately elected president.

The Monmouth poll found that 14 percent said they will never accept Biden as the legitimate president.

Thirty-three percent of respondents said they believe efforts by state legislatures to audit the results of the 2020 election are legitimate.

Earlier this month, another poll found that almost a third of Republican voters believe Donald Trump will be reinstated as president this year.
