In a recent appearance on Newsmax's "Saturday Report," bestselling author and current adviser to President Donald Trump, Dick Morris, he analyzed the decline in President Joe Biden's poll numbers, attributing it to his stance on the Israeli-Hamas conflict.
According to Morris, Biden, who had been leading in the polls in July and August, witnessed a significant shift in September and October. The turning point occurred on Oct. 27, leading to a surge in support for former President Donald Trump.
Morris stated, "In the first phase, July and August, Biden was beating Trump in almost every one of them, 18 out of 20. Then, in the next two-month period of September and October, they were absolutely neck and neck." However, since Oct. 27, Biden has only won two out of 20 polls, with Trump securing victory in the rest.
When questioned about the reasons behind Biden's decline, Morris pointed to the Israeli invasion of Hamas into Israel. He argued that this event emphasized the need for a strong commander in chief during times of peril. Additionally, Morris suggested that Biden's perceived pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel stance during the conflict played a crucial role in his declining approval.
Morris expressed concern over Biden's position, stating, "As the war has progressed, and now the cease-fire in the negotiations, all of that, Biden is emerging, really, as pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel." He emphasized that this sentiment was not limited to a specific group, saying, "Not just Jews are saying this, but all supporters of Israel are saying this."
The adviser further speculated that Biden's attempt to appeal to younger voters might be backfiring, as he is losing support among voters under 30. Morris contended that Biden's perceived "tilt" toward Palestinians and against Israel is a significant mistake, and he believes the president is "paying for it in the polls."
Morris highlighted the economy and the absence of significant mistakes during this period as factors that did not significantly contribute to Biden's decline. Instead, he emphasized the impact of the Israeli-Hamas war, portraying it as the decisive turning point in the polls where Trump emerged as the favorite.
