One in four voters rejects Trump and Biden twice

Bloomberg Line — The ranks of doubly haters—voters who say they don’t like either of the two major parties’ presidential candidates— are at an all-time high and they make up a quarter of the electorate, according to a new analysis from the Pew Research Center.

That’s almost twice as much as at this point in 2020.

Doubly haters were a key factor in Donald Trump’s surprising victory in 2016, when they opted for the Republican candidate over Democrat Hillary Clinton. But President Joe Biden won over many of those voters on his way to the White House in 2020.

Biden and Trump are more or less taking away these disillusioned voters in battleground states more or less equally, with Biden winning 25% compared to Trump’s 22%, a survey from May shows Bloomberg News/Morning Consult.

But the biggest threat to Biden and Trump is that voters turned off by them will simply stay home – or find refuge in an independent candidate like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., which obtains 24% among those voters in the survey of Bloomberg/Morning Consult. Other third-party candidates take a combined 12%.

Growing political polarization is driving unpopularity. The Pew analysis found that presidential candidates are only slightly less popular within his own party than three decades ago, but that the voters of the opposing party are much more negative.
