NY Times/Siena poll has Trump leading Biden in 5 critical battleground states

Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in almost every single battleground state, according to a series of new polls.

Conducted by Siena College on behalf of The New York Times, the polls show Biden losing to Trump by three to 10 percentage points in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania.

Only in one state — Wisconsin — does Biden beat Trump by two points. Other than that, the former president dominates the dojo.


Why are Americans so down on Biden? Partly because they believe “Mr. Biden’s policies have personally hurt them,” according to the Times.

This accurate perception is likely rooted in the current economic conditions, which for everyday Americans is not so great right now.

Americans are also down on Biden because because they feel the world is “falling apart” under his rule.

“The world is falling apart under Biden. I would much rather see somebody that I feel can be a positive role-model leader for the country. But at least I think Trump has his wits about him,” Spencer Weiss, a 53-year-old Biden voter from Pennsylvania, told the Times.

Jahmerry Henry, a 25-year-old Georgia resident, appears to feel similarly.

“I actually had high hopes for Biden. You can’t be worse than Trump. But then as the years go by, things happen with inflation, the war going on in Ukraine, recently Israel and I guess our borders are not secure at all,” he told the Times.

“I don’t see anything that he has done to benefit us,” Nevada voter Patricia Flores, a 39-year-old Biden voter, added.

And then there’s Travis Waterman. He voted for Biden in 2020 but now views him as “weak.”

“I don’t think he’s the right guy to go toe to toe with these other world leaders that don’t respect him or fear him,” he told the Times.

The Times further notes that the polls also reveal “the extent to which the multiracial and multigenerational coalition that elected Mr. Biden is fraying.”

“Demographic groups that backed Mr. Biden by landslide margins in 2020 are now far more closely contested, as two-thirds of the electorate sees the country moving in the wrong direction,” according to the Times.

It appears therefore that, for all intents and purposes, the #WalkAway movement has finally taken off.

For example, Biden leads only voters under 30 by just a single percentage point. Similarly, his lead among Hispanics is down to single digits, and his lead in “urban areas” is reportedly half of Trump’s lead in rural areas.

As for black voters, a stunning 22 percent of them now support Trump, according to the new polls.

According to the Times, voters also said that Trump’s policies helped them while Biden’s policies have hurt them, that Biden is “too old” to be president, that Biden lacks the “mental sharpness” for the job, and that they trust Trump with the economy more than they trust Biden.

What the polls didn’t appear to address was the recent backlash that the current president is now facing for standing behind Israel as it bombs the Gaza Strip.

“Biden is going to blow it with young voters if he doesn’t change course. That’s the message leaders of several groups that rallied those voters to support Biden in 2020 are sending as the president continues his wholesale support of the Israeli government’s continued assault on Gaza,” Rolling Stone magazine reported Saturday.

“[W]e are seeing an immense risk around whether or not young people will feel alienated ahead of the 2024 election and risk staying home,” Michele Weindling of the left-wing advocacy group known as the Sunrise Movement told the magazine.

Also included among the president’s latest critics is Rep. Pramila Jayapal, a far-left Democrat who too has warned that the president’s pro-Israel stance could hurt him in next year’s presidential election.

All this comes amid nationwide demonstrations from protesters demanding that the president pressure Israel into a ceasefire.

The latest demonstration occurred outside the White House and practically turned into a full-fledged riot.
