The presidential elections are coming up in November this year, but current polls show the current head of state of the USA to be behind: According to a survey by the Siena College Research Institute (SCRI), which was commissioned by the New York Times, Joe Biden has one Disapproval rating of 47 percent - the highest negative poll number during his entire term in office.

The poll published on Saturday also showed that Biden is currently trailing Donald Trump, 43 percent to 48 percent, among registered voters nationwide, whose candidacy is now becoming increasingly likely for the Republicans.

The ex-president recently clearly won the Republican primaries in Michigan.

The survey also found that only around one in four voters believe that the country is developing in the right direction.

More than twice as many voters said Biden's policies had hurt them personally compared to those who said they had helped them.

Majority believes Trump will win back the presidency

"Among a nationwide sample of dissatisfied voters, former President Donald Trump has a four-point lead over President Joe Biden," said Don Levy, director of the SCRI.

"59 percent of respondents disapprove of Biden's job performance and although a majority of 53 percent say Trump has committed serious federal crimes, a majority of 46 to 41 percent predict Trump will win back the presidency."

The survey is just one of many that shows how great the voters' dissatisfaction with the president is, according to the "Guardian." Last week, a survey by the Bloomberg news agency showed that Biden is behind Trump in several critical states, including Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada and Wisconsin.

“Double haters” could decide the elections

In the Bloomberg poll, a large portion of respondents expressed concerns about Biden's age.

Biden's health is a topic that continues to come into focus in the run-up to the election.

A significant number also said Trump was dangerous.

Both surveys show that the number of “double haters” is significant.

Pollsters use the term to describe those voters who do not support either candidate.

Nineteen percent of voters in the Times poll said they disapproved of both men.

Among them, however, Biden is hated slightly less (Biden comes in at 38 percent, Trump at 45 percent).

According to the Times, this margin of 7 percent is significant: the candidate who is less unpopular with "double haters" won the last two presidential elections.
