Joe Biden Faltering With Massachusetts Voters, Poll Says

Printed from:

President Joe Biden isn’t as popular as he once was in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

While a majority of Bay State voters approve of the job he is doing as president, his support has taken a hit a little more than one year into his presidency. 

A poll released by the Fiscal Alliance Foundation on Wednesday morning found that 51.7 percent of Bay State voters approve of the job Biden is doing as president. Meanwhile, 44.9 percent of voters disapprove of Biden’s performance, and 3.9 percent aren’t sure how they feel about the Democratic president.

Among unenrolled voters, there was a nearly split opinion of the president; 46.8 percent approved of him while 47.9 percent disapproved of his performance.

The Fiscal Alliance Foundation is a right-of-center organization with ties to the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, a fiscal watchdog on Beacon Hill.

Fiscal Alliance Foundation spokesman Paul Craney said the poll is a bad sign for Biden, if he chooses to seek another term.

“While it is unclear if President Biden will run for re-election, it’s worth pointing out that if the President is having trouble generating high intensity approval ratings in Massachusetts, it is very likely he’s much worse off in states like New Hampshire which are more balanced,” Craney said.

This approval rating comes in one of the most heavily Democratic states in the country. Biden overwhelmingly won Massachusetts in the 2020 presidential election; he got more than double the votes that the sitting president at the time, Republican Donald Trump, received. Biden won 65.6 percent of the vote while Trump got 32.1 percent.

Biden’s popularity is down across the country. He started his presidency with a 53 percent approval rating (36 percent disapproved), according to FiveThirtyEight. Now, 41.7 percent of Americans approve of him and 52.8 percent disapprove, FiveThirtyEight says.

The poll was conducted between February 8 to February 10. It polled 750 voters and had a 3.5 percent margin of error.
