(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Proving that policy and leadership failures covered by the left’s propaganda machine will only get a president so far, Joe Biden’s approval among his Democrat voters is plummeting over the fallout from the Islamist terrorist onslaught against US ally Israel.
According to recent Gallup polls, the president’s approval ratings have significantly declined, particularly among members of his own party.
Biden’s approval among Democrats dropped 11 points in just over a month, reaching a record low of 75%, The Daily Caller reports.
This decline comes amid rising tensions in the Middle East and evolving opinions within the Democratic party – after on October 7, the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas invaded Israel and sadistically butchered over 1,400 civilians.
However, Biden might be in trouble with the leftist crowd precisely due to his unwavering support for Israel, according to a report by Axios, a pro-left news outlet.
“In this moment, we must be crystal clear… The United States has Israel’s back. We will make sure the Jewish and democratic state of Israel can defend itself today, tomorrow — as we always have,” Biden remarked on October 10.
Yet, a significant shift in sentiment to Israel’s detriment has been observed within the Democratic Party, Breitbart News points out.
For the first time in two decades, an annual Gallup poll from February revealed that Democrats showed more sympathy for Palestinians than for Israelis.
This divide is even more pronounced among younger generations. A recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll indicated that only 48% of Gen Z and millennials believe the US should publicly support Israel.
Despite the president’s commitment to aid to Palestinians, critics worry this aid could boost Hamas.
Thus, the ongoing challenges in the Middle East might be influencing the decline in Biden’s overall approval ratings, which dropped four points to 37%.
The Gallup poll also shows that only 35% of independents and a mere 5% of Republicans approve of Biden.
“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,” the Gallup poll noted.
The poll’s findings are based on the opinions of 1,009 adults, surveyed from October 2 to 23, with a 4-point margin of error.
