Joe Biden’s poll numbers are tanking in the important early primary state of Iowa.
Not only is his approval down, most polled believe he should not run again in 2024.
At this point, a week doesn’t go by without Biden’s numbers going down somewhere.
The Des Moines Register reports:
Iowa Poll: Most think Joe Biden should not run again in 2024 as approval rating falls
Less than a quarter of Iowans say they think President Joe Biden should make another run for the White House in 2024, even as he insists he will seek a second term in office.
According to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll, 23% of Iowans say they hope Biden, 79, runs for president again, while 67% say they hope he does not. Nine percent are not sure.
The results come as Biden has begun arguing that he remains the best option to take on his former rival, Republican President Donald Trump. Trump, 76, reportedly is weighing his own campaign announcement as early as this month. Comparatively, at 32%, more Iowans think Trump should run again than think Biden should, a 9 percentage-point difference.
Overall, the poll paints a bleak picture for Biden, who is about a year and a half into his first term.
Even among Democrats, just 37% say he should run again. More Iowans say the nation is headed in the wrong direction today than at the peak of the Great Recession in 2008. And Biden’s job approval, at 27%, is now the second-lowest rating of any president measured by the Iowa Poll.
Biden is a disaster.
