A Lot Has Changed For Dems Under Biden In The Past Year

A poll released on Monday showed that Americans were more inclined to support the Republican Party than the Democratic Party towards the end of 2021 than at any point since 1995.

Forty-seven percent of Americans described themselves as Republicans or Republican-leaning according to a Gallup poll taken between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2021, compared to 42% who described themselves as Democrats or Democratic-leaning, the largest difference the pollster has measured in favor of Republicans since the first quarter of 1991.

The results marked a dramatic change from the first quarter of 2021, when 49% of Americans identified themselves as Democrats or Democratic-leaning, compared with only 40% who identified themselves as Republican-leaning.

Gallup polled 12,416 adults across all 50 states and Washington, DC throughout 2021, with a margin of error of one percent.

President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party saw their approval ratings plummet over the second half of 2021. Starting in August with the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden’s approval rating dropped from 50% to 41.6% in the RealClearPolitics average. During the same time, Republicans captured the Virginia House of Delegates and governorship and turned seven seats in the New Jersey state legislature.

Biden’s drop has been fueled by Hispanic voters leaving the Democratic Party. A poll that was taken in early December showed that nearly 70% of Hispanic voters support the tax cuts associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, while 55% of Hispanics support increased spending on border security.

Other polls have shown that Republicans are ready to take back both congressional chambers. Voters surveyed by USA Today in November preferred generic Republican candidates over Democratic candidates by eight points, while the Democrats’ signature Build Back Better social spending package was opposed to by more than 50% of voters in key swing districts.
