President Joe Biden is undoubtedly not a popular president. They indeed say “you get what you vote for” because Biden’s recent unfavorable rating should have the White House scrambling to fix it.
Biden would be 86 years old if he ran for a second term. That alone should give you a bad vibe for the next administration. Biden sits at 79 currently, which is too old to be president. The values and perspectives you have at 79 are much different than at 40, 30, or even 20 years old. That age doesn’t represent the majority of the country.
Biden’s unfavorable rating is at 52.2 according to RealClearPolitics poll data that compiles several polls that have been conducted.
According to the same poll, his favorability is currently sitting at 42.9%.
Vice President Kamala Harris’ unfavorability rating is 52.7%, and favorability rating is 40.5%. Interestingly, the vice president has a higher unfavorable rating than the president.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, has hit 57.7%. That’s incredible. Pelosi’s favorability is at a low of 33.6%.
Counter those numbers with former President Donald Trump, and you can see that they’re similar, but Trump is still much more popular than all of them.
Trump’s favorability is 52%, while his favorability is 40.9. How Biden pulled off the higher favorability number is beyond conception, but it’s still there.
The only good thing that Biden has done from the beginning of his presidency is getting the infrastructure bill passed. Biden’s Build Back Better bill is dead in the water because Democrats aren’t going to give it in the Senate even though it has already passed in the House.
According to an August Quinnipiac poll, 54% of Americans believe Biden will not run again in 2024, and you can imagine his cognitive decline if he decided to. The 54% who thought Biden wouldn’t run in 2024 was 45% of Democrats who were polled. Only 33% of Americans believe Biden will run again in 2024.
That’s not surprising because a deficient number of Americans said they were more likely to vote for a candidate that Biden endorses. 16% versus 29% said they would vote for a candidate Biden supports, which is why Beto O’Rourke doesn’t want Biden’s help in his Texas governor race.
