BIDEN has been hit by a shocking new poll that shows only 33% of voters would re-elect him if the 2024 election were today: Most Americans say they are worse off than they were in 2020 — with the midterm elections less than a month away.
- A Fox News poll found that a majority of American voters would want someone other than President Joe Biden to run in 2024 if they were elected today.
- More than 50% of them also said they do not think Biden is trustworthy and honest
- Democrats still have a narrow lead among voters in the congressional general ballot
- But Republicans have a lead over voters who say they are certain to vote on November 8
- 89% of people surveyed said inflation and price hikes were a major concern
A new poll released Sunday shows that only a third of American voters would return President Joe Biden to the White House if the 2024 election were held today.
The survey found that the majority of Americans also think their lives are worse than they were two years ago.
The new Fox News poll was conducted Oct. 9-12, less than a month until Election Day 2022 when voters will decide which party controls Congress in the latter half of Biden’s term.
While a majority of 54 percent said they want someone other than Biden to run for president, Democrats have a slight advantage over Republicans on universal congressional balloting.
Forty-four percent of registered voters said they favor the left over the right for their congressional votes, while 41 percent said the opposite.
However, Republicans have a one-point advantage among people who “feel confident to vote,” according to the poll.
Biden’s re-election remains fairly high among Democrats, with 71 percent supporting him in his hypothetical re-election bid on the current day.
A majority of American voters polled by Fox News said they would not vote for President Joe Biden again if the election were held today.
The president’s low approval ratings have been a source of frustration for some vulnerable Democrats running for re-election this year
He remains deeply unpopular with Republicans, as might be expected, but Sunday’s poll results are a near-uniform indictment of Biden despite his campaign pledge to unite all Americans.
Only 4 percent of Republican voters said they would re-elect Biden. 91% preferred a different candidate.
Biden is also trailing among the significant independent voter bloc, with just 13 percent saying they would re-elect him if the election were held today.
The Fox poll does not appear to take into account whether a person voted for Biden in 2020.
However, it does indicate that Americans are widely dissatisfied with the president’s management of the economy.
The poll indicates that inflation and rising prices are a major concern for nearly nine out of ten American voters.
Fifty-one percent said they and their families are worse off now than they were in 2020, up 6 percent from May 2022.
Only 15 percent said they felt better, and 33 percent said they felt the same.
Democrats still overwhelmingly support Biden, but he lags behind independents and is almost unpopular with Republicans.
Most respondents also said they were worse than they were in October 2020, when Donald Trump was still in office.
Biden was also lacking in aspects of a major character that he saw as defining traits in the 2020 campaign. More than 50 percent said he wasn’t “honest and trustworthy,” and 51 percent said he “didn’t care for people like me.”
It’s not yet clear what impact Biden will have on Democrats’ efforts to hang on to their very thin congressional majorities, but lawmakers running for re-election are using a range of tactics.
The White House announced Sunday that Biden will campaign with Democratic Rep. Charlie Crist in his bid to unseat Florida’s popular Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
By contrast, Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock declined to say whether he would support Biden in 2024 during his debate against Trump-backed Republican Herschel Walker.
“I haven’t spent a minute thinking about what politicians should be running for in 2024,” he said.
And in Ohio, Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan — running for an open Senate seat — and being watched by a Trump-backed Republican — flatly rejected the idea of endorsing Biden’s re-election.
When asked about it during a debate against JD Vance in Cleveland, Ryan said, “No, I’ve been very clear. I’d like to see a generational change.”
