How unpopular is Joe Biden? He’s so unpopular that his approval rating recently dropped to 43 percent — 6 point below his extremely unpopular Vide President, Kamala Harris. He’s so unpopular that if the election happened today, President Trump would handily beat him — and his Vice President — in head-to-head races. New polling reveals that Trump wins vs. Biden and Harris in a 2024 matchup.
A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that in a head-to-head matchup, Biden nor Harris stands a chance — and not even by a little. Trump would win by around 10 percentage points against Biden. And shockingly, 20 percent of Democrats would vote for Trump. Against Harris, Trump would win 52 to 39 percent.
The Washington Examiner says that voters don’t necessarily want Trump to win again — though they would definitely choose him over Biden or Harris:
The survey is the latest of dozens that have shown Biden sinking like a stone. Many have turned south since the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. forces and diplomats from Afghanistan and the surge of illegal immigrants over the U.S.-Mexico border.
Others have shown that people are growing worried about Biden’s competence and ability to stay in office long enough to run for reelection.
At the same time, voters have been slow to warm to another Trump bid. But that appears to be over.
Rasmussen found that more likely voters than not want Trump to run again. By a 48%-44% margin, they told the pollster that running in 2024 is a good idea.
Trump, set to host a Georgia rally this weekend, has been hinting at another run, and his top advisers have suggested that a 2024 run is a lock.
The poll does not indicate why voters have warmed to Trump again. But others, notably one from McLaughlin & Associates, have shown that voters want Trump’s leadership style back.
Americans have learned a lesson about Biden. But that lesson has been learned too late. The best we can do is get rid of him in 2024 unless he screws up so badly that Harris is forced to invoke the 25h Amendment.
