Biden backers are bailing, Siena-NYT poll shows


The headlines are bad for Biden. When a liberal news outlet like Politico blasts: “Six warning signs for Biden in new battleground state poll,” followed by a sub-headline, “The toplines are bad for Biden. What’s buried deeper in the poll might be worse,” then you know the president is in trouble with voters.

According to polling just released, Biden is losing four of the six battleground states, and tying Trump in one.

“When a pollster releases new data in six key battleground states, and the incumbent is losing in four of them, it’s hard to narrow down the list of warning signs to just a handful,” Politico wrote on Sunday.

The results from The New York Times and Siena College, released to coincide with the Nov. 5 start of the presidential calendar year for the 2024 General Election, show President Joe Biden is losing ground to former President Donald Trump.

Siena College polls are usually slightly favoring a Democrat outcome. In 2022, Siena predicted that Ron DeSantis would win reelection as governor of Florida by 11 points. He won by more than 19. Siena predicted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott would win reelection by 9 points; he won by nearly 11. Siena predicted Sen. Marco Rubio would win reelection by 8 points; he won by double that margin.

Thus, if Siena polls say Biden is in trouble, even the leftist-controlled media knows enough to pay attention.

In this poll, conducted in October in battleground swing states, Trump leads Biden in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, ties Biden in union-heavy Michigan and trails Biden in Wisconsin. These are six states that Trump lost in 2020. Trump leads Biden by at least 5 percentage points in four of the six battleground states, while Biden’s 2-percentage-point advantage in Wisconsin is within the margin of error.

Some takeaways:

  • 41% think Biden is too old.
  • 36% think Biden “has the mental sharpness to be an effective president.”
  • 54% think Trump is mentally sharp enough to be president.
  • 23% think the country is headed in the right direction.
  • 43% of Democrats think the country is on the right track, and 42% think it’s on the wrong track.

Biden’s best demographic is the under-30 voter. In that group, Biden leads Trump 50% to 44%.

  1. “These are six states that Trump lost in 2020.”
    What?? Does MustRead really believe that Trump lost these six states? Traitor!

  2. Much as I rejoice in anything that looks like hope, the ‘rats are devious – call it too early to tell, it’s just another poll… Thanks for posting this Suzanne.

  3. Won’t matter if the democrats continue getting away with stuffing ballot boxes and paying voters in districts that vote heavily democrat.

  4. Gavin Newsom (wasn’t he just in Taiwan or something?)
    Will American Muslims & their supporters not vote for Joe in Mich?
    Will liberal Jews not vote for Israel funding Joe?
    Will Suburban women turn out big for abortion (for them & their daughters) & hand it to the Dems?

    Will DJT be allowed to take office, if elected?
    Big Brother seems to own the FBI & uses it freely against the people.
    NYC Mayor Adams publicly criticized Biden on the open border & human flood it crates and
    one week later the FBI is at his fundraisers house in Brooklyn taking everything.

  5. The most concerning part of this poll was embodied in the last sentence of the story.
    Biden leads Trump in the under 30 year old group. Evidently the future of our Nation is in question when half of those under 30 would choose Biden. The dumbing down of America 🇺🇸 is nearly complete.
    God have Mercy.

    • Always been this way.
      I was a Dem voter until I was 25 or so.

      (Especially Mark David Chapman)

  6. As soon as Trump gets the nomination, watch these same polls reverse those numbers. Brought to you by the same people that gave you Russian collusion, J6 was an insurrection, BLM riots were mostly peaceful, the election wasn’t stolen, and best if all masks, lockdowns, and clot shots are good.
    Stop being suckers.

  7. Beijing Biden, Sloppy Joe, Short Stairs Biden, Corn Pop Biden, Genocide Joe, Biden Crime Family, Sniffy Hair Joe, etc. The nicknames tell it all. Biden has managed to piss off just about everyone in the country! Let’s hope that in his last desperate act to try and stay in power he doesn’t add Nuclear Joe to the list.
