US President polls

We know that one of the most important aspects of any country’s political system is an election and it is worth noting that the Taiwan’s new President will also be elected early next year. However, it is also worth reminding that we will see a new US Presidential election next year which will determine if US President Biden is re-elected or we see the return of former US President Trump who has not been too favourable for the Chinese. While the current US leadership is also not in favour of China creating tensions in Taiwan, they have not done much to harm China.

Anyways, we are here to tell you about a new report which reveals that things are not looking good for the current US President Joe Biden as it has been found out that he is trailing the former US President in critical states of the US which are also known as “swing states”. New York Times reports that “Voters in battleground states said they trusted Donald J. Trump over President Biden on the economy, foreign policy and immigration”. The poll found that “Mr. Biden is losing to Mr. Trump, his likeliest Republican rival, by margins of four to 10 percentage points among registered voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania. Mr. Biden is ahead only in Wisconsin, by two percentage points”.

The report also mentions that “Discontent pulsates throughout the Times/Siena poll, with a majority of voters saying Mr. Biden’s policies have personally hurt them. The survey also reveals 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.”

Additionally, the report mentions that “Voters under 30 favor Mr. Biden by only a single percentage point, his lead among Hispanic voters is down to single digits and his advantage in urban areas is half of Mr. Trump’s edge in rural regions. And while women still favored Mr. Biden, men preferred Mr. Trump by twice as large a margin, reversing the gender advantage that had fueled so many Democratic gains in recent years”.
