This week, President Joe Biden received additional bad news as he continues to deal with a succession of escalating foreign and domestic situations.
The majority of Democratic voters remain adamant that Biden should not run for reelection in 2024, according to a recent survey. Biden is expected to declare his candidacy for re-election next week, coinciding with the release of this brutal poll.
“Roughly 47% of Democrats said they would like to see Biden run again in 2024, a slight uptick from the 37% who offered similar sentiments in January, according to a poll from the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. When it comes to all voters, only 26% said Biden should run for a second term,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“Although a majority of Democrats said he shouldn’t run for another term, about 81% of voters in the party said they’d support him in the general election if he’s the nominee, the poll showed. That support was split among 41% who said they would definitely support him compared to 40% who said they probably would,” the outlet added.
Last week, a similar survey was conducted on Biden.
“President Joe Biden’s job performance rating has mostly held steady for more than a year and currently stands at 44% approve vs. 56% disapprove in the latest Fox News national survey. That’s net negative by 12 points. The last time that he received positive marks was September 2021, and that was by 1 point (50%-49%),” Fox News reported.
“Approval of the president hovers at a low point among several key voting groups, including women (43% now vs. 42% low), voters ages 45+ (41% vs. 39% low), suburban voters (41% vs. 39% low), rural voters (31% vs. 30% low) and Democrats (81% vs. 78% low) – Democratic men in particular (79% vs. 78% low). He’s at a low mark of 41% approval among suburban women,” the report added.
A majority of respondents disapprove of Biden’s performance on these key issues, according to the poll: 53% on national security, 54% on foreign policy, 60% on border security, and 64% on the economy.
“Biden’s numbers cratered in the fall of 2021 after the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle and the onset of hyperinflation,” said Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll with Democrat Chris Anderson. “Since then, his approval has barely moved, despite a midterm election, economic ups and downs, and several legislative policy rollouts.”
According to a new poll conducted by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, President Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 38%, down from 45% in February and 41% in January. This brings his approval rating perilously near to its lowest point during his presidency, when only 36 percent of people approved of his job performance in July 2021, as rising prices for gasoline, groceries, and other goods impacted the nation.
According to the poll, the economy is the most significant factor in the Biden administration’s low approval rating. Fewer than one-quarter of the population believes that the national economy is thriving or that the country is on the correct track. In addition to focusing on national security and healthcare, the Biden administration also prioritizes additional issues.
