Joe Biden’s approval rating in the key state of Georgia has crumbled ahead of the 2022 election cycle.

Joe Biden has driven himself and his party off the extremist, left-wing cliff, and his approval ratings are falling just as fast in the Peach State.

According to a new poll released by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Biden’s numbers have taken a deep dive in Georgia falling quickly from the 51 percent found in May:

A closer look at Biden’s poll numbers shows other signs of discontent with his presidency. The 62% of voters who disapprove of him include key elements of the coalition that helped elect him.

Only 5% of Democrats gave him an unfavorable review in the AJC’s May poll; in this poll the number rose to 21%. His support among independents fell sharply, too. But the contrast was particularly sharp in the most powerful constituency in the state Democratic Party.

In May, only about 8% of Black voters disapproved of Biden’s performance. That number had more than quadrupled in the AJC’s latest poll, which found disapproval among Black Georgians at 36%.

The same poll finds that sitting Dem. Sen. Raphael Warnock is under water to GOP challenger Herschel Walker.

The Jan. 24 University of Georgia’s School of Public and International Affairs poll finds that Walker, a 1982 Heisman Trophy winner, has overtaken Warnock, who was elected in a special election in 2020 for the seat temporarily held by Republican Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed to the seat to finish the term after Sen. Johnny Isakson resigned his seat.

In the poll, 872 registered Georgia voters were asked: “If the election were held today and the candidates for U.S. Senate were Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker, who would you vote for?”

Respondents found favor with Walker 47 percent to 44 percent for Warnock. Eight percent said they didn’t know.

Warnock was elected to officially run out Isakson’s term in 2020. Along with Democrat Jon Ossoff — who also won office in 2020 — was one of the first Democrats elected to the U.S. Senate from Georgia since Zell Miller won office in 2000.

The same poll gave Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp the edge over Democrat challenger Stacy Abrams in a 48 to 41 percent total.

The numbers were also disastrous for Joe Biden with findings that put his approval underwater in a number of key areas.

A large majority said that the country is headed in the wrong direction (71 percent to 17 percent), the economy concerned citizens far more than COVID (20 percent to 13 percent), and 42 percent said they are “financially worse off” now than they were when Biden was elected compared to 32 percent that said they are “better off.” Voters also evinced “strong disapproval” with 50 percent disapproving of Joe Biden’s job as president compared to the mere 14 percent who gave Biden a “strong approval” rating.

The University of Georgia’s School of Public and International Affairs was taken between January 13 and 24 and has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
