Things are starting to get so bad for Joe Biden that even some Democrats are starting to doubt him.
According to a Morning Consult/Politico poll, 16% of Democrats think that the results of the 2020 presidential election should be overturned.
Overall, the October poll found that 35 percent of voters polled agreed that President Donald Trump was the rightful winner of the November election.
60 percent of Republicans surveyed indicated that the election results should definitely or probably be overturned, compared to a much smaller 30 percent that said that they should probably not or definitely not be overturned. 10 percent of respondents were undecided.
16 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of independents said that the election results should be overturned.
More than 94 percent of Democrats supported Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2020. According to Morning Consult/Politico, 83 percent of Democrats support Biden nearly one year after last year’s presidential election, a sharp decrease in support.

Biden’s approval ratings have dropped more than any president since 1953.
Biden has been so terrible in office that he has managed to topple a record that has stood for the better part of his lifetime.
Biden’s averaged approval ratings have dropped a stunning eleven points over his first year in office.
No president in modern history has been that abysmal.
President Biden’s 11-point drop in averaged approval ratings over his first three quarters in office marks the most significant decline in approval during the same point in any presidency since 1953, according to Gallup.
During his first quarter as president from January to June, President Biden enjoyed approval ratings between 54 percent to 57 percent, with an average rating of 56 percent, according to Gallup. Since then, his approval rating has plummeted. Approval ratings in his third quarter, which began on July 20 and ended on October 19, averaged at 44.7 percent, according to Gallup. The 11.3 percentage point drop between Biden’s first and third quarters is the largest of any president dating back to 1953, according to Gallup.
Earlier this week, a new poll from the Trafalgar Group reveals that Biden’s approval rating has dropped below 40 percent, which is a new low.
The poll shows Biden’s approval hovers at 39.2 percent, compared to the president’s disapproval spiking to 58.4 percent, with more than 54.8 percent of the respondents saying they “strongly disapprove” of him.
Looking at the approval rating by party, just 32.2 percent of the independent respondents said they approve of the president, along with only 11.1 percent of Republicans.
Still, a majority (61.2 percent) of Democrats said they approve.
A Zogby poll also found that only 36.4% of likely U.S. voters believe that Biden has done an “excellent” or “good job” as president.
Our latest polling shows President Biden with a 36% positive job performance rating (excellent-15% and good-21% combined), while his negative rating is 61% (fair-19% and poor-42% combined).
Biden is only receiving decent marks from his political base’s most ardent supporters: Democrats (68% positive/30% negative), Liberals (69% positive/30% negative), urban voters (52% positive/46% negative) and African Americans (56% positive/41% negative) were the only groups to give him a majority positive rating.
He is getting hammered by all age groups, including younger voters aged 18-29 (34% positive/63% negative), women (32% positive/65% negative), suburban voters (32% positive/65% negative), Hispanics (41% positive/59% negative), Independents (24% positive/71% negative), suburban women (29% positive/67% negative), and urban women (43% positive/53% negative).
Biden’s job approval has been trending downward for weeks, due in part to his mishandling of several issues.
Biden is also underwater with Hispanics in Texas, according to the eye-opening results of a recent survey released earlier this month.
