Joe Biden’s popularity among Americans is rapidly going downhill.
He’s lost a key group of voters he can’t afford to lose.
These new polls exposed how devastatingly bad Joe Biden’s election chances are.
President Joe Biden is losing to former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 presidential election matchup according to the latest polling data for the 2024 presidential election.
Both a CBS News/YouGov poll and a Harvard-Harris poll found Trump gaining victory over Biden.
According to the recent CBS News/YouGov poll published on Sunday, 50 percent of the 4,002 sampled U.S. adults would cast their votes for Trump, while just 49 percent would support Biden. One percent of voters remain undecided in this scenario.
Among independent voters, Trump holds a significant lead with 57 percent, compared to Biden’s 42 percent.
Biden also isn’t polling as well as Democrats typically do with minority voters. He’s only narrowly winning the Hispanic vote and 81 percent of black voters still support Biden, that is lower than the support that Democrats typically get from the black community.
Democrats “have continued to take for granted American blue-collar workers, Black Americans, and Hispanic Americans, and every other voting bloc that typically votes Democrat,” Trump campaign co-manager Chris LaCivita said according to NBC News earlier in September.
The poll found that voters have significant concerns on whether Biden is capable of carrying out a second term. Only a third of voters think that Biden would finish a second term. In comparison, most voters predict Trump would finish a second term.
The Harvard-Harris poll was even worse for Biden.
It found Trump to be ahead of Biden by 4 percent with Trump gaining 44 percent of the vote from respondents to Biden’s mere 40 percent. Trump was leading among independents and third-party voters at 40 percent to 35 percent.
However, despite Biden’s weaknesses, he still fared better in a hypothetical matchup against Trump than other Democrats. When pitted against Vice President Kamala Harris, Trump received 46 percent of the vote to Harris’s 40 percent.
A House Democrat, who spoke anonymously to the Washington Post on Monday, said that Democrats are concerned about Biden.
“You don’t want to do anything to undercut the person who is going to be your nominee,” the lawmaker said. “At the same time, these concerns are very real.”
Democrats also have to worry about the impeachment inquiry that Republicans have launched against Biden.
“This has the potential to be the beginning of a serious political problem and devastating legal one,” said Hogan Gidley, a former Trump White House official, according to Reuters. “Starting an impeachment inquiry will hopefully force the media to cover the mountains of evidence linking Joe Biden to Hunter’s business dealings in a way that the American people haven’t seen yet.”
