Poll: Voters who switched from Trump to Biden in 2020 abandoning president in droves

President Joe Biden has suffered from plummeting poll numbers for much of his tenure in office thus far, and a new survey reveals that he has also lost the support of a key contingent – voters who backed Trump in 2016, but pulled the lever for the Democrat in 2020, as the Washington Examiner reports.

The study from GOP public opinion research enterprise J.L Partners found that in a group of Americans who cast their ballots for the former president in his first campaign, but switched their allegiance and chose Biden four years later, just 3 out of 10 would support the incumbent in 2024.

That group also registered alarming dissatisfaction with Biden’s performance in office to date, with just 1 out of 5 agreeing that the commander in chief is doing “very well” at the nation’s helm, with just 7% of those voters age 65 and up saying the same.

This critical portion of the electorate, referred to as “purple” voters, may have an outsized impact on the next presidential election, according to James Johnson, the polling firm’s founder.

Johnson’s survey results suggest that of the nearly 4 million Americans who fall into the category, at least 1 in 4 intend to choose Republican candidates in the midterm contests, with immigration, the economy, and leftist promotion of cancel culture as key reasons for their decisions.

“For Biden, the poll is bleak,” Johnson said bluntly.

Potentially exacerbating Biden’s problems with those who previously supported Trump and his platform is the president’s recent rollout of a series of rhetorical digs aimed squarely at conservative voters, claiming that “[t]his MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history,” and assailing his predecessor snidely as “the great MAGA king.”

Though a source familiar with the Biden camp’s strategy in this regard told NBC News that “[t]here’s a very sound, databased research that the term ‘MAGA’ is repellant to swing voters,” not everyone is so sure.

Republican-affiliated political adviser Curt Anderson begged to differ with that assessment, saying, “It’s hilarious. They’re highlighting their single biggest vulnerability. It’s almost like they are trying to harm themselves,” but just how much damage the attacks on Trump supporters and those on the fence may ultimately do to the Democrats’ cause, only time will tell.

Well good but they never should have voted for Biden in the first place. Look at all the bad policy they are responsible for because of that bad decision for stupid reasons.

Dementia riddled Biden isn’t qualified for the position they placed him in! Perhaps they should have placed Biden as President Trump’s shoe shine boy for a few years so he could learn proper decision making. LETSGOBRANDON
