According to Zogby’s latest poll released on Friday, an astonishing number of Biden voters, one out of every five, regret voting for Biden in the last election.
Notably, the Zogby poll was taken before the Taliban conquered Afghanistan and before Biden botched the withdrawal of Afghanistan, where 13 U.S. service members were killed with many more injured.
76 percent of respondents said “no” they do not regret their vote, and 4 percent were “unsure.”
However, 20 percent did not specify they would have voted for Donald Trump. Zogby Analytics points out that looking closely at the 2016 and the 2020 elections, both were only decided in a handful of battleground states by tens of thousands of votes, not hundreds of thousands, meaning this can hurt the president’s chances in 2024.
Younger voters in the 18 to 29 (29 percent) and 30-49 (30 percent) age groups were more likely to regret their vote than the 50 to 64 (ten percent) and the 65 plus (six percent) age range.
Broken down party preference, registered Republicans who vote for Biden regret their vote more than Democrats and independents, 29 percent, 21 percent, and 14 percent, respectively.
The poll found that urban voters were twice as likely to regret voting for Biden than urban and rural voters, 28 percent, 14 percent, and 12 percent, respectively.
The Zogby poll was conducted between August 15 and 13 to 2,173 voters who voted for President Biden, with a margin of error of +\- 1.5 percent.
The president lost significant support from independents as his job approval number dropped to a new low, according to a recent poll from NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist.
That poll showed only 43 percent of respondents gave Biden a positive approval rating. In comparison, only 36 percent of independents approved Biden, which was 10 percent lower than a previous poll.
