The messages being delivered by the voters are sounding the alarm bells for Biden, Schumer and Pelosi but they are apparently not listening

Beware those polls predicting a Biden win and the Democrats gaining control of the Congress—rather than those polls seeking answers to specific issues which indicate a Trump win and Republican control of the Congress more likely.
The responses to three questions asked in the September 14-28 Gallup poll should concern Biden.
- On the question of “personality and leadership qualities a president should have”:
President Trump is a businessman and a deal maker—not a career politician like his opponent Joe Biden. Trump runs the country like a big business. The speed and frequency of his decisions contrast with the slow and ponderous ways of the Washington bureaucracy and previous Presidents.
- Closing America’s borders on January 31, 2020 to flights emanating from China—to arrest the spread of Covid 19—Biden accusing Trump that same day of “hysterical xenophobia—and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”
- Opening the American Embassy in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018—when all Presidents before him failed to do so after the Jerusalem Embassy Act 1995—adopted by the Senate (93–5), and the House (374–37)—had specifically given them that authority.
- On the question of “agree or disagree with (Donald Trump/Joe Biden) on the issues that matter to you most”:
This result is bad news for Biden/ Democratic Party camp.
Trump’s lack of personality and leadership qualities as a president has not stopped a majority of the responders acknowledging Trump has handled issues of concern to them to their satisfaction. Voters will forgive Trump’s personal Presidential failings because he cares more about their issues than a Presidential-looking Biden.
A Biden win looks increasingly unlikely after voters were asked: “Whether They’re Better Or Worse Off Than Four Years Ago”. (See following window)
- 56% consider themselves better off in 2020 than in 2016—after Biden had then been their Vice President for the previous 8 years.
- The responders had lived through the unprecedented Covid 19 pandemic for nine months that had threatened to destroy their own hopes and dreams of being better off than four years ago.
Statista’s poll has ominous consequences for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi regarding the elections for Congress—the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Statista puts the disapproval rating of the United States Congress at 80%—the highest disapproval rating in the past 12 months (See following Window):
- increased from 68% in December 2019—when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was still considering whether to impeach President Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction—to 74% in February 2020 after Trump had been found not guilty by the Senate
- is likely to shoot even higher as:
- the Senate begins its confirmation hearings into appointing Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court—which the Democrats will oppose
- Pelosi moves to establish a process to effectively give Congress a say in removing a president from office under the 25th Amendment of the Constitution—which the Republicans will oppose
- Trumps’ offer of $1.8 trillion in a renewed search for an economic relief deal is being rejected by Pelosi
- Senate Minority leader Schumer threatens to replace the filibuster, pack the Supreme Court and create two new states Puerto Rico and Washington DC.
The messages being delivered by the voters are sounding the alarm bells for Biden, Schumer and Pelosi but they are apparently not listening.
