Voters don’t dislike President Joe Biden — it’s just that they like former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama a hair more, according to a new national survey.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports poll, 51% have a favorable view of the nation’s oldest president ever.

But that isn’t as high as Trump, 52%, and Obama, 55%.

For most, it’s splitting hairs. But numbers are numbers, said Rasmussen.

And the pollster found some important reasons for the differences. One was partisanship, the other race.

“Comparing voter opinions of Biden and his two predecessors across demographic categories, the current president suffers from more intense disapproval by Republicans and doesn’t have the kind of strong support from black voters that benefited Obama,” read the survey analysis.

The details:

“Sixty-five percent (65%) of Republicans have a ‘Very Unfavorable’ opinion of Biden, while just 47% of GOP voters now have a ‘Very Unfavorable’ opinion of Obama. And while 57% of black voters have ‘Very Favorable’ opinion of Obama, only 45% of black voters have a ‘Very Favorable’ of Biden. Perhaps more significantly, the percentage of black voters who have a ‘Very Unfavorable’ view of Biden (19%) is more than twice as large as the number of black voters whose opinion of Obama is ‘Very Unfavorable’ (9%).

“Furthermore, among voters unaffiliated with either major party, the number who have a ‘Very Unfavorable’ opinion of Biden (39%) is equal to Trump, and much higher than Obama (26%).”
