A new Rasmussen Reports survey released Friday is bad news for Joe Biden.
According to Rasmussen, “65% of Likely U.S. Voters say the problem of violent crime in America is getting worse,” and “50% are not confident in Biden’s ability to deal with the crime problem, including 35% who are Not At All Confident.”
In a report on the survey, which was conducted May 25-26 from among 900 likely voters across the country with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence, Rasmussen noted, “Only 10% say the violent crime problem is getting better, while 22% think it is staying about the same.”
Rasmussen noted that 46 percent of survey respondents are confident in Biden’s ability to “deal with the problem of violent crime.” This includes 20 percent who are “very confident.” So, it would appear the country is almost evenly split. But that depends upon who you talk to.
“While majorities of all political affiliations agree the violent crime problem is getting worse,” Rasmussen explained, “Democrats have much more confidence than other voters that Biden is able to handle the problem.”
Rasmussen’s data shows that 77 percent of Democrats have confidence in Biden where violent crime is concerned, but 78 percent of Republican voters are not confident and among Independents, 55 percent are not confident he can handle the situation.
“Sixty-seven percent (67%) of whites, 68% of black voters and 57% of other minorities say the problem of violent crime in America is getting worse,” Rasmussen said. “Women (68%) are more likely than men (62%) to say the crime problem is getting worse.”
Rasmussen also breaks down attitudes economically. The polling firm found that “Voters earning less than $30,000 a year are more likely than those with higher incomes to say violent crime is getting worse.”
Predictably, Biden’s strongest supporters “are least likely to think the crime problem is getting worse,” Rasmussen revealed.
“Among voters who Strongly Approve of Biden’s job performance as president,” the Rasmussen survey discovered, “51% say America’s violent crime problem is getting worse and 18% think it’s getting better. By contrast, among voters who Strongly Disapprove of Biden’s performance, 89% say the violent crime problem is getting worse and only three percent (3%) think America’s crime problem is getting better.”
