Poll: Iowans strongly disapprove of Joe Biden weeks before Trump will hold Iowa rally

by Alex Caldwell

An overwhelming majority of Iowans strongly disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance as president, according to a Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa poll.

A paltry 31 percent of Iowans approve of Biden’s job performance, while 62 percent overwhelmingly disapprove of him.

Joe Biden, who is approved of by a meager 31 percent of Iowans, lost the state to Donald Trump during last year’s presidential election. Biden received 45 percent to Trump’s 53 percent.

Less than one-third of Iowans approve of Joe Biden just weeks before Donald Trump’s rally in Des Moines. Biden’s approval in the Hawkeye State has fallen 12 percentage points from June, when 43 percent of Iowans approved of him and 52 disapproved of him.

Although 86 percent of Iowa Democrats approve of Biden’s job performance, only 4 percent of Republicans and 29 percent of Independents approve of him.

Joe Biden, who is pictured challenging an Iowa voter to a push-up contest, overwhelmingly lost the 2020 Iowa caucus, losing handily to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Mayor Pete Butigieg (left) who won state’s caucus.

Iowa’s disdain for Biden follows his botched handling of Afghanistan where he abandoned hundreds of Americans in the now Taliban-controlled country, and mistakenly authorized a drone strike on an innocent family, killing ten civilians, including seven children. Only 22 percent of Iowans approve of Biden’s handling of Afghanistan.

Iowa, a longtime battle ground state, is among many other swing states that have shown low favorability ratings for Biden.

According to a Civiqs poll, Biden’s approval rating is underwater in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Democrats will face an uphill battle in Iowa during the 2022 midterms following Biden’s exceedingly low favorability. Democrats are hoping to unseat Republicans Gov. Kim Reynolds and Sen. Chuck Grassley, and pull off victories in the state’s four congressional races.

Donald Trump announced that he is holding a rally with supporters in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday, Oct. 9. Trump is headed to the first state that caucuses for the presidential primary elections amid rumors that will launch a bid for the White House in 2024.
