Democrats thought they did good in 2020. Then, Biden took office. Proving once and for all that cheaters never really win. At least not where it counts.
Now, Democrats are desperately seeking a candidate that can actually challenge the GOP, because all eyes will be on the lookout for any fishiness. Unfortunately, this leaves leftists in a lurch, because winning fair and square hasn’t been their plan in decades.
Even knowing full well their predicament, I must admit this poll cracked me up. Apparently, Democrats may not know who they want, but they are dead set on who they don’t want.
According to the Daily Mail:
When given the choice, voters are more likely to be unsure of which Democrat they want running in the 2024 presidential race than they are to desire President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris to appear on the ticket.
Only 19 percent of respondents in a Issues & Insights/TIPP poll released Monday say they want to see the current president run for reelection. Less than half of that – a mere 7 percent – say they want to see Harris run for president.
The most popular answer among the 981 registered voters surveyed was ‘not sure’, while another 6 percent say they want a different candidate than some of the top presented in the poll question.
The dire poll for Biden and his No. 2 comes as they continue to show dismal approval ratings.
Biden sits around an average of 40 percent approval recently, some dipping into the high 30s.
A new poll released Monday from the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School showed Biden’s approval slipping a massive 20 percent among young Americans from last year.
Biden went from 59 percent approval among 18-to-29-year-olds last spring to just 41 percent in the poll taken March 15-20 among 2,024 people in this age demographic.
But White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain suggested polls aren’t indicative of election potential, pointing to French President Emmanuel Macron’s reelection on Sunday despite low job approval numbers.
‘An interesting observation, just FYI,’ Klain wrote on Twitter Sunday. ‘President Macron appears to have secured a double-digit victory over LePen, at a time when his approval rating is 36%. Hmmm….’
Accompanying the tweet was a Morning Consult weekly tracking poll of several major world leaders’ favorability within their own countries. It showed Biden with a 40 percent approval rating among American adults, four points better than Macron and eight above British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who ranks lowest on the list at 32 percent support.
The link was an apparent indirect response to criticism that Biden shouldn’t run for reelection considering his low approval.
Yikes. That’s bad when “not sure” is more popular than the most recent “winner”.
Ironically, leftists didn’t address the fact that Biden is single-handedly sucking the air out of the Oval Office.
They instead focused on Macron, for winning with a low approval rating. Clearly, approval ratings aren’t the end-all deciding factors in elections, as pollsters wish they were. However, there’s a lot more to consider here. First of all, we know pollsters typically skew polls to the left. Thus, there’s a built in amount of fallacy in each poll. So, even with the leftist leanings meant to favor him, Biden’s numbers are the worst I’ve ever seen.
Next, Biden’s polls continue to go lower and lower. It’s been ages since I’ve witnessed a poll even try to spin it Biden’s way.
A few weeks ago, I wrote:
For the past year, I believe we’ve written of dropping polls numbers every single month. If we missed one, I’d be surprised. Because every time we turn around, Biden slips a little further down.
In fact, his plummeting ratings are setting as many records as Bidenflation. It just can’t get much worse. But you won’t hear conservatives complaining, because polls like these guarantee Biden won’t get a second term.
While Democrats are desperate to find a solution, no such answer exists. All we can do it analyze the rut the president is in.
Fox News explains:
MARK PENN: These are spectacularly low [approval] numbers. To really get down to it, only a third being favorable and in the 20s on independents, of course makes [Biden’s] reelection a virtual impossibility. The administration has got to pivot or this is going to be a tornado of a midterms if these numbers continue to hold up. And frankly, they’ve had month after month here to do something to turn around on inflation, on immigration, on Ukraine, on crime. And they just haven’t done it. They have done small little incremental changes. They need big changes to change some big numbers.
Even CNN sees the writing on the wall!
In other words, when comes to Biden serving a second term, “fat chance” is the most likely answer. In fact, I’m willing to bet my next ten paychecks on it.
