Voters see the upcoming November midterms as a referendum on President Joe Biden, new polling shows.
Rasmussen Reports released the data which showed that only 40% say this election is about individual candidates and their policies.
“By a six-point margin, voters view the upcoming midterm elections as being more about President Joe Biden than individual candidates and issues, and half say a Republican win means Biden should change course,” Rasmussen said.
The midterm election has been a referendum against the incumbent party in recent decades. Incumbent Democrat former President Barack Obama saw big losses in his first midterm while president, as did former President Donald Trump.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. voters say the upcoming midterm election is a referendum on Biden’s agenda,” Rasmussen said. “Forty percent (40%) think it’s more about individual candidates and issues, but another 14% are undecided.”
