New poll shows serious trouble for Joe Biden in Florida

Biden age
If the President wants a second term, it's unlikely he can count on the Sunshine State for much help.

Democrats have their work cut out in Florida if President Joe Biden ends up being the party’s 2024 nominee.

That’s one major takeaway from the latest poll from the University of North Florida Public Opinion Research Lab (UNF PORL), which was in the field Nov. 6-26.

The survey shows the President with 63% disapproval against just 34% approval, indicating there is little for Biden backers to feel cheery about in the survey release.

Democrats, who resoundingly backed Biden in the 2020 Florida Primary, appear to have soured on the President to some degree. While he has 69% approval in his own party, the 25% disapproval suggests that he may have a hard time energizing his base, a notable problem in a state where Republicans have surged well ahead of Democrats in registration.

Compounding the President’s problems is that independent registrants regard him distinctly unfavorably. Just 30% of independents approve of Biden, against 62% disapproval.

Republicans, as one would expect, are even more sour about the President.

Biden has an anemic 4% approval with the other party, with 94% of Republicans negative about him.

A gender split is in play, as would be expected, but when it comes to this President, it’s just varying degrees of woe. While 40% of women approve of Biden, against 56% disapproval, he does even worse with men, of whom 27% like the President and 69% disapprove.

Biden’s troubles extend to Black voters also, with the President struggling to reach 50% approval among them, against 38% disapproval.

As would be expected given the other data, Biden is underwater with all age groups.

But his struggles with young voters are especially notable not just for an expected re-election campaign, but down the ballot as well.

Among voters under 25 years of age, Biden has 28% approval against 69% disapproval.

The 25-34 year olds are no more favorably disposed to the President, with 25% approval against 68% disapproval.

He has 30% approval with voters aged 35 to 44, against 66% disapproval.

While Biden is at or above 40% approval with voters 45 years of age and older, the President’s problems with the younger generation should be cause for concern among in-state and national Democrats alike.

    Better put “Dementia” Joe back in the basement and let the state run media carry him through again just like 2020. Fire up the Demo voting harvesters as well.

    Thank goodness for Joe Biden!!! It took the experience and caring and respect to bring America back from the Horror and Hate of the “Orange Jesus “. Desantis is just a repeat of Orange Jesus. I cringe even calling Trump anything about Jesus! Bless you Joe Biden!!! Do it again!

      Welcome back Sonja,
      I’m glad you have been able to put the guilt of your Democratic support which thru appeasement of the Muzzy’s lead to that unfortunate Kibbutz slaughter in Isreal.
      It must have taken some serious couch time in a psychological Doctor’s office.
      Welcome back dear,

    I’m glad Biden got rid of trump for us but now he’s just doing a Ginsberg by hanging around. Time for some newer, younger blood.

      Thank you Tom for finally realizing that the savage Muzzy’s will push Isreal into the sea if we elect another Democrat as POTUS.
      Welcome aboard “Patriot Tom” !!!!
      Your Mom & Dad are both so proud of you.

        You’re apparently assuming that because I think Biden has passed his use by date means that I’d actually vote for Trump or Desantis. You’d be dead wrong on that one. I’d take Methuselah’s dog before voting for that clown show.

          It’s OK Tom,
          You can still be a great Patriot and secretly vote for the side of Truth, justice, and the American way.
          You are making good progress and just a reminder you don’t have to tell your Dook 4 Brains Leftist idiot friends and pervert lovers you are now a conservative.
          Welcome Patriot Tom
          We will help you make new friends and convert you back to a heterosexual after the POTUS election.
          Your Mom & Dad will be so proud Tom.
          So relax your sphincter and get a good night of rest Patriot Tom,

    Only one poll that matters, and that is a year away. Things will change for both sides. The joker in the deck is the concerted effort by the MAGA insurrectionists in suits to diminish the turnout and — per the MAGA Zeigler family of Florida — swing the election by fraud.
