While the deep blue state has a higher approval rating for the president than the rest of the country, it is still only at 46 percent, according to a Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll released Monday. Biden’s disapproval is around the same, giving him a near tie in favorability in the New England state.
The poll surveyed 765 registered voters surveyed and just two more said they disapproved than approved for a split of 354 to 352.
The president’s approval now is 20 points lower than what he earned in the presidential election in Massachusetts.
Specifically, unenrolled voters, which make up the largest voting block in Massachusetts, have only 39 percent favorability of Biden while 52 percent disapprove.
Unenrolled voters means that while they are registered to vote, they are not officially affiliated with any political party. It is essentially the same thing as an ‘independent voter,’ although they can vote in primary elections in Massachusetts by choosing which ballot they prefer to vote on – either Republican or Democratic.
