Everyone knew Joe Biden would be a failure, but no one expected his failure to resound to early in the first term.
Not even one year in and the American people have had enough. Enough chaos at the border, chaos in their cities, and chaos in their wallets.
The cognitively-declining president has issued a serious of policies — largely through executive order — that has resulted in the near-destruction and devastation of the country. And Americans are starting to feel the blowback.
Most Americans don’t think President Joe Biden, 78, will run for re-election in 2024, a new poll has found.
A majority of Americans, 54 – 33%, say they think Joe Biden will not run for president in 2024, with another 13% not offering an opinion, Quinnipiac reported.
Just under half of Americans (48%) say they think it would be bad for the country if Joe Biden ran for president in 2024, while 37% think it would be good for the country,” said the poll, which surveyed 1,290 adults nationwide from July 27 to Aug. 2.
By party, three-quarters of Republicans and a majority of independents say Biden won’t run again in 2024. Democrats, meanwhile, are split, with 41% saying Biden will run and 45% saying he won’t.
The pollsters also found that Biden is slipping in job approval. “President Biden gets a mixed job approval rating, with 46 percent of Americans approving and 43 percent disapproving. This compares to a positive 49 – 41 percent job approval in May.”
During the 2020 campaign, Biden hinted that he would be a one-term president. But that changed after he got into the White House. Asked in March at his first news conference if he planned to run for re-election, Biden said, “My answer is yes. I plan on running for reelection. That’s my expectation.”
Meanwhile, almost half of Americans, 49%, think Donald Trump will run for president in 2024. 39% think he won’t.
If Biden runs again and wins, he‘d be 82 years old to begin his second term.
To put that in political perspective, Ronald Reagan was 69 years old at his first inauguration. That record stood until the election of Trump, who was 74 years years of age when he moved into the White House.
When Biden picked then-Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, many politicos believed he was choosing his would-be successor. But some Democrats don’t think Harris can win the presidency.
Many Democrats, including some current senior administration officials, are concerned she could not defeat whomever the Republican Party puts up — even if it were Donald Trump, according to a Kamala staffer.
