Is The Democrat Party Collapsing?

via ProPublica

President Joe Biden’s approval rating among Democrats reached a new record low, according to a recent Gallup poll.

Only “75% of Democrat respondents approve of Biden’s presidency — marking an 11-point drop from last month’s poll,” the poll found.

The drop in approval was attributed to his unwavering support for Israel following the terrorist attacks by Hamas. Democrat approval decreased by 11 points, while Independent approval dropped by 4 points. (Poll: Is The Democrat Party Collapsing? VOTE)

Republican approval remained unchanged at 5%. Overall, Biden’s approval rating decreased by 4 points to 37%.

The poll suggests that Biden’s stance on Israel could impact both the war’s outcome and his domestic perception.

Megan Brenan, a Gallup research consultant, said, “The Israeli-Palestinian conflict comes at a time when Americans remain pessimistic about the economy, the Biden administration is struggling to deal with increasing numbers of migrants attempting to enter the country, and debate continues about how much aid to provide to Ukraine in its war with Russia.”

“As events in the Middle East continue to unfold and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza worsens, Biden’s guidance on Israel could affect not only the outcome of the war but also how he is viewed at home.”

The poll also revealed that a majority of Americans still support Israel.

The GOP-led House passed a resolution in support of Israel, with only 10 members voting against it, including some members of the “Squad.”

Despite changing views on the conflict, most generational and party groups still view Israel favorably.

Biden’s current approval rating is similar to that of former presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama at the same point in their terms.

Lydia Saad, the director of U.S. social research at Gallup, said, “Regardless of the reasons that Democrats’ (and, to a lesser extent, independents’) views have changed on the conflict, majorities of all generational and party groups still view Israel favorably and look more favorably on Israel than on the Palestinian Authority.”

“This suggests that while rank-and-file Democrats may want Palestinians’ needs addressed, they will want solutions that respect Israel’s needs as well,” Saad added.
