Joe Biden’s gaffes may be catching up to him. A USA Today/Gallup poll found that the vice president is unpopular in many key swing states. In the 12 swing states polled, 54 percent of swing voters view Biden unfavorably, while just 40 percent of voters view him favorably. These results put him in a significantly worse position than President Obama—and could hurt the Democratic ticket. In the same states, 50 percent of voters have favorable views of Obama, while 49 percent view him unfavorably. Among independents, 50 percent have an unfavorable view of the vice president compared to just 35 percent who view him favorably.
