Survey: Three-Fourths Of Voters Say Country ‘Out Of Control’ Under Biden

Another new poll of U.S. voters is horrible news for President Joe Biden and his reelection campaign.

A Hart Research/Public Opinion Strategies/NBC News survey published last week found an astounding three-quarters of voters believe the country is “out of control” and on the “wrong track” under the current commander-in-chief.

The survey revealed that the last time the percentage was this high was under George W. Bush in 2008, at 70 percent. During the Obama administration, it was at 65 percent.

Like most others, the poll also found that Trump is leading Biden in six of the seven swing states, including Wisconsin. Modernity News reported, citing the survey results, that some other polls have recorded Biden as having a narrow lead.

The survey also discovered that non-white voters are turning away from Democrats and shifting towards the Republican Party. In the past four years, non-white voters have shifted approximately 40 points in favor of the GOP, the report said.


Republican pollster Bill McInturff pointed out that 41 percent of registered voters now identify as Republicans, while 40 percent identify as Democrats. In comparison, in 2016, Democrats had a seven-point advantage.

“Wow, the biggest deal in polling is when lines cross, and for the first time in decades, Republicans now have the national edge on party ID. Given the current partisan polarization, this makes the electoral math for Republicans significantly easier than it was in 2012, 2016, or 2020,” Public Opinion Strategies, a polling firm highlighted by McInturff, noted in an X post.

Modernity noted further:

A majority of Democrat voters still want Biden replaced with another candidate just months before the election.

On Wednesday, Biden failed to fill a high school gymnasium in Philadelphia, with the school kids themselves filling up the empty space. 

Meanwhile, a leading Democrat-leaning pollster said in a report on Friday that the so-called “consultant industrial complex” on the left is continuing to clamor for replacing what they see as a very vulnerable President Joe Biden from atop the party’s ticket.


Democratic pollster and analyst John Zogby described the situation as disgraceful, stating that the “consultant-industrial complex” is in full panic mode months too early, at a time when they should be uniting behind the president. Furthermore, Zogby mentioned that their concerns are unfounded, as some polls indicate that Biden is still tied with former President Donald Trump.

Obviously, Trump did not have a good week, having been convicted of 34 felony counts in Manhattan related to his ‘hush money’ payment ahead of the 2016 election to adult film star Stormy Daniels, despite the fact that state and federal officials and prosecutors had all previously determined that no crime had been committed.

But Biden didn’t have a good week, either, as the Washington Examiner noted:


The White House was socked again by a report that inflation was not cooling but remaining above the Fed’s 2% goal. And Biden offered up yet another Gaza peace plan without first winning any support from Israel.

Even worse, said conservative grader Jed Babbin, the administration’s efforts in Gaza turned disastrous when its $320 million humanitarian aid pier broke apart in a storm, what he called “the perfect metaphor for the Biden administration.”

“And ’tis the season for backstabbing from the consultant-industrial complex. Usually, these folks express doom in October and privately throw in the towel so they can (1) avoid blame for a loss,  and (2) position themselves for the next lucrative loss. But, hell now, in May? They are talking about how to remove Biden from the ticket. That never works for the consultant class,” Zogby added.

But GOP pollster Jed Babbin pointed to one of Biden’s biggest Achilles heels: “Inflation remains stubbornly high, and the Fed is talking about raising interest rates again to try to slow the overheated inflation.”
