Young Americans seem to be abandoning President Biden, according to a new poll this week from Harvard’s Institute of Politics.
Biden came to office with a 59% approval number among 18-29-year-olds but this has now lowered 13 points to only 46%, according to the new poll. The fall mirrors Joe Biden’s performance in his general approval rating, which has gone down steadily after summer due to his support for unlimited mass immigration into the country, and his strict stance on COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The poll was done with 2,109 18- to 29-year-olds from October 26 to November 8. The error margin was 3.08 points.
Biden’s declining support among young people in America is especially noteworthy because of how dominant Democrats usually are in this demographic. The IOP poll reveals that Biden dropped by 10 points among young Dems and 14 points for Independents.
Large amounts of respondents also showed pessimism about the state of the United States, with 45% of Dem respondents saying the country is a “failed democracy.” Over 50% percent of responding Independents and 70% of GOP members said the same, according to the survey.
“Almost half of young GOP members place the chances of a second civil war around 50% or greater, compared to 32% of Dems, and 38% of responding independent and unaffiliated people,” the IOP wrote.
Biden’s approval numbers among the overall public has gone from 54% upon entering the oval office to 36.3% as of this week, according to a survey from the Convention of States and the Trafalgar Group.

The unpopularity of both Biden and VP Kamala Harris has many Dems worried about their ability to win during the 2022 midterms.
This comes at a time when Americans are suffering through sky-high inflation and even Democrats are becoming aware of the incompetence of team Biden. The midterms will undoubtedly be the most up-hill battle Democrats have ever faced. Topics like inflation, anti-white CRT training in schools across America, and money being sent to illegals, will be at the top of the list of ammunition for Republicans seeking to dethrone liberals.
