President Joe Biden faces some concerning numbers. His approval rating, which has continued to fall since the middle part of last year, might be the most worrisome.
However, other poll statistics are starting to become equally concerning. And we’re hearing evidence that more Democrats are turning on the President, and hoping for a new candidate in 2024.
Right now, the future looks very much in doubt — especially when only a small number of Americans think he’ll be re-elected.
Recent polls have shown the President’s approval rating to be in the low 40s, though some of the more disturbing surveys put him down in the 30s. Vice President Kamala Harris often fares even worse.
Republicans like their chances of “red wave” in the 2022 midterm elections, and they’re also eyeing the presidential election in 2024 with great anticipation.
Biden has confirmed that he plans to run again, but it seems most voters don’t believe he has a good chance. In fact, only a little more than 1 in 4 Americans think he’ll land a second term.
The latest Rasmussen poll definitely got people’s attention with that particular statistic.
Only 28 percent of likely voters believe President Joe Biden will be reelected in 2024, a Rasmussen poll revealed Thursday.
What does the future hold for Joe Biden? Here is what US Voters think:
28% – Reelected in 2024
38% – Loses to a Republican in 2024
21% – Resigns before his term#Biden2024#Trump2024#BreakingPoll@POTUShttps://t.co/sGUHevpKEg pic.twitter.com/TuiEvuCcSw

About 38 percent of voters believe Biden will lose to whoever the Republican nominee turns out to be, and a stunning one-fifth of those polled (21 percent) think Biden will resign before the 2024 election.
Biden’s age has become another big question, even among left-wing citizens.
He will be 82 years old in 2024 and many argue that he’s already exhibiting signs of cognitive decline. This includes former White House physician Ronny Jackson, who has frequently called out Biden’s mental state.
Then there are the seemingly endless problems and crises that face the current administration.
The first to really separate itself from the crowd was the border crisis. After Biden reversed Trump’s stronger stance on border security, ICE numbers of encounters and arrests began to skyrocket.
Many authorities say the border basically doesn’t even exist in some spots, and the Supreme Court ordered Biden to bring back Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy.
The ongoing pandemic hasn’t helped Biden’s cause either, and most recently, concerning inflation has hit the nation. The economy remains a primary concern among many voters after the holidays.
And with Trump’s popularity among the GOP, it seems very likely that he will run again.
He currently holds a 58-point margin over the next-closest hypothetical Republican nominee, so right now he’s the odds-on favorite. And Democrats don’t appear to have an equally popular candidate on their side.
This could all lead to a massive shift in power on Capitol Hill in the coming years.
- According to a new poll, President Joe Biden’s chances of being reelected are at 28%.
- 21 percent of those surveyed think Biden will resign before the 2024 election.
- Multiple crises and Biden’s age are the biggest concern for Democrats, and Donald Trump’s popularity among Republicans is arguably higher than ever.
