The chances of President Joe Biden getting elected again as President of the United States continue to dwindle.

A Gallup poll found that Americans’ opinions of the economy are cratering to levels last seen in 1992 when then-President George H. W. Bush lost to Democratic nominee Bill Clinton in a legitimate three-way race that also included Reform Party nominee Ross Perot.

“Americans have been consistently more negative than positive in their assessments of the economy’s trajectory since May 2021,” the poll said.

“The May 2024 survey finds that seven in 10 Americans (70%) say the economy is ‘getting worse,’ while 26% say it is ‘getting better,’” it said.

“The current index figure is similar to where it was when George H. W. Bush was defeated in 1992,” it said, with the Washington Examiner claiming Biden is now in the “loser category.”

This is one of many polls that are tragic for the president.

Another survey found that former President Donald Trump is maintaining his lead in most of the critical swing states heading into the summer months of his campaign ahead of his likely GOP nomination during the Republican Party’s July convention in Milwaukee.

A Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll of registered voters, conducted from May 7th to 13th, found that Trump holds a four-point lead over Biden across all swing states. The former president leads by five points in Arizona, seven points in North Carolina, three points in Georgia, two points in Pennsylvania, and one point in Wisconsin.

Trump and Biden are tied in Nevada, while Biden holds a narrow one-point lead over Trump in Michigan. The poll of 4,962 registered swing state voters has a margin of error of one point. Although Trump leads in most swing states, the race has tightened since last month, when he had stronger advantages, particularly in Wisconsin and Georgia, the Daily Wire noted.

The survey also revealed a relatively pessimistic outlook on the economy, with 55 percent of respondents stating that the economy in their state is headed in the wrong direction, compared to 45 percent who believe it is moving in the right direction.

The poll findings come as Trump and the Republican National Committee outpaced Biden and the Democratic National Committee in fundraising last month. That marked a reversal of the trend seen in March when Biden and the Democrats outraised Trump and the Republicans.

A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll found that voters trust Trump more than Biden to handle the economy, immigration, and crime, which are expected to be key issues in the presidential election. Additionally, a Harvard Harris poll revealed that a larger share of voters approve of Trump’s performance in office compared to Biden’s.

Voters also seem to support Trump’s key promises on immigration. A recent survey found that 61 percent of Independents believe that illegal immigrants should be deported, which is a central element of Trump’s 2024 immigration agenda.

Trump just dealt a crushing blow to President Joe Biden’s fundraising lead during an April event in Florida.

The former president’s campaign announced that it raised a staggering $50.5 million, CNN reported. The total close to doubles the record set by President Joe Biden’s campaign the previous week in New York when he raised $26 million at an event that featured former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

The “Inaugural Leadership Dinner” was held at the Palm Beach, Florida, home of billionaire investor John Paulson.

“Tonight will be an incredible night for President Trump and the Republican Party, raising an astounding $50.5 million,” Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, Trump campaign senior advisors. “Meanwhile, after locking up the nomination in one of the fastest primaries in modern political history, Donald J. Trump is winning poll after poll and proving that the enthusiasm is on his side. It’s clearer than ever that we have the message, the operation, and the money to propel President Trump to victory on November 5.”
