A poll released on Tuesday revealed that 61% of Americans think Joe Biden should step aside for another candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
Biden’s approval ratings have been trending downward with a recent survey reporting results of a dismal 41%, and an overwhelming disapproval rate at 53%, up five points from August.
Nearly 61% of voters want Biden to bow out so another party member can run in his place, while only 24% think he should run for a second term in the latest Hill/HarrisX poll.
Even his Democratic supporters think he should let someone else take their shot at the presidency in 2024, with only 45% in favor of him running again, and 37% urging the current commander-in-chief to abandon the pursuit of another term.
Republicans overwhelmingly believe that Biden needs to throw in the towel, with 87% in favor and only 8% against. The majority of Independents want him out as well, with just 17% advocating for his second go, while 59% want him to take a hike.
Independents had the largest percentage of voters who were unsure if Biden should go for it in the next race for the White House, with 25% undecided, compared to 18% of Democrats and 5% of Republicans.
In another recent poll, 46% of voters think he has done less than expected during his first year in office, while 31% think he’s accomplished what they thought he would, and a mere 23 percent believe he’s achieved more.
Predictably 72% of Republicans think Biden’s performed less than anticipated, while 50% of Independents agree, compared to only 17% of Democrats.
Vice President Kamala Harris is actually faring worse than Biden with an abysmal 28% approval rating, with 51% of people polled disapproving of her performance and 21% still undecided about it.
Amid the nation’s discontent over inflation, pipeline shutdowns, vaccine mandates, and the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, another survey indicated that 51% of Americans plan to vote for Republican congressional candidates in the upcoming midterm elections, while only 41% would vote for Democratic candidates.
