Biden’s Favorability Tanks As the Tara Reade Claims Gain More Media Coverage

Biden’s Favorability Tanks As the Tara Reade Claims Gain More Media Coverage

Biden still has a substantial lead over Trump in just about every poll, but being underwater among women voters could spell trouble for the hair-sniffing former VP.

Tara Reade’s sexual harassment allegations aren’t going away. As more outlets cover the story, Biden’s favorability rating among voters has dropped.

According to a poll conducted by Morning Consult, Biden’s favorability has dropped 5 points since he denied Reade’s accusations, putting Biden’s favorability rating the lowest its been since Super Tuesday.

From the Morning Consult:

A new Morning Consult poll found the former vice president’s net favorability — the share who view him favorably minus the share who view him unfavorably — has dropped 5 percentage points among registered voters since an April 20-26 poll conducted in the week before Biden forcefully denied Reade’s accusation on television amid heightened media coverage of the story. According to the new polling, conducted May 4-10 among 27,754 registered voters, 48 percent of voters view Biden unfavorably, compared with 43 percent who have positive views of the former vice president. Both polls had a 1-point margin of error.

The slide resulted in Biden’s net favorability among women falling underwater for the first time since the nadir of his primary campaign in February, with 46 percent viewing him unfavorably and 44 viewing him favorably. Taken together, it marks a 6-point drop in net favorability among women since the April 20-26 poll, driven by women ages 30 to 65 — the voting bloc that strategists on either side of the aisle credit with fueling Democratic victories in 2018 House races.

Morning Consult measured similar dips in popularity among men, voters on either side of age 45, suburban whites and black voters.

Reade’s story had been brewing in the press for months, but it wasn’t until late April that it made a major splash in Washington — when a Business Insider interview with Reade’s former neighbor revealed new details about the allegation, some on the left began to pressure Biden to respond and Reade publicly signaled her interest in participating in a television interview. The April 20-26 poll was conducted the week before Biden issued a firm denial during a May 1 on-camera interview with MSNBC. A Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted May 2-3 found 64 percent of voters said they’d seen, read or heard “some” or “a lot” about Reade’s allegation, while roughly the same share had heard about Biden’s denial.

Following Biden’s denial, Reade called on him to drop out of the presidential race in an interview with Megyn Kelly, a former Fox News and NBC News anchor, that was posted online last week.

“Biden still has a substantial lead over Trump in just about every poll”

I am so old that I remember that Hilary had “a substantial lead over Trump in just about every poll” too, up to the closing of the polls, the real polls, on November 8th, 2016.

    I’m wondering if conservatives are just trolling pollsters now and answering liberal to tank the system.

    I’d do it.

    As soon as someone gets their boat wrapped with in a “Biden” (other than the Titanic), I’ll believe he has any momentum.

    They need to start polling outside of California and NYC.

    How long before there is another suicide in the Clinton sphere?

Hard to imagine today’s introverted, reticent Joe Biden is the same guy with giant Chiclets teeth who made mincemeat out of Paul Ryan in the VP debate in 2012.

    A family member passed away from Alzheimer’s. They gradually just”disappeared” – first mentally, then physically. This is how it appears to me.

    We’re probably going to find out paul ryan laid down for gropin’ joe, and quid pro joe had the debate questions ahead of time. romney and ryan rolled over like dogs for obama/biden. These two uniparty hacks are probably just as deep in Ukrainian/Chinese/Name the highest bidder corruption as the rest of the swamp creatures.

“ Biden still has a substantial lead over Trump in just about every poll…”

Interesting that polls also constantly showed Bernie! beating Trump, yet the MSM/DNC axis was frantic to keep him off the ticket.

The naked hatred the media has for Trump – and the non-stop lies and deceptions about the Wuflu and the wild overestimation of its baleful effects, the Russia hoax, the Ukraine hoax, the climate change hoax, the “hands up don’t shoot” hoax, the “epidemic of gun violence” hoax (the list is seemingly endless) – has been well documented for decades and is not seriously disputed anymore. Yet for some unexplained reason we should set aside our skepticism and accept uncritically polls from these very same crooked and corrupt organizations?

Folks, look up the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect sometime.

I thought he would recover from his #DumpsterFireSideChats from his #SegreGatedCommunity.
I watch them for the self-immolation.

I am pretty sick of Me Too horse crap, but it is poetic that Biden is being savaged by a beast that he helped create.

Fake Polls….
