You WON’T Believe How Many Americans Don’t Want Biden to Run Again

A new CNN poll conducted by SSRS during the month of March found that President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have taken a hit, with two-thirds of respondents not wanting him to run for re-election. Biden’s approval rating stands at 42%, with a disapproval rating of 57%. In January, his approval rating was 45%, and his disapproval rating was 55%. The difference is within the poll’s margin of error.

The poll also showed that when it comes to Americans who believe that Biden should serve a second term, his approval ratings are much lower. Only 32% of Americans believe that he deserves another term in office, while 67% believe he does not.

However, Biden’s numbers are a little better among registered voters, with 36% saying he deserves another term compared to 61% who believe he does not.

A majority of registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents also do not support Biden running for another term. The poll found that 44% of this group favored Biden as the Democratic Party’s nominee for the 2024 presidential election, while 54% said that someone else should be given the opportunity.

Biden’s lack of popularity is also reflected in his approval rating on major policy issues, which is underwater in every category. His approval rating is in the 30s for three issues: the economy at 37% approve to 62% disapprove, immigration at 35% to 63%, and gun policy at 37% to 62%. Environmental policy is Biden’s best issue, with a 46% to 52% rating, but he is still underwater in this area as well, the survey found.

Biden has yet to make a formal announcement about his candidacy for the 2024 election, but he has reportedly been telling his allies that it’s a matter of when not if. CNN reported that he told one elected official several weeks ago, “I am definitely running.”

The poll was mainly conducted before the news of former President Donald Trump’s indictment, so it doesn’t reflect any shifts in public opinion related to that event.
