Biden Would Be a Disaster in 2024

“No amount of post-election puffery about Joe Biden can change a key political reality: His approval ratings are far below the public’s general positivity toward the Democratic Party. Overall, Democrats who won in the midterm elections did so despite Biden, not because of him. He’s a drag on the party, a boon to Republicans, and — if he runs again — he’d be a weak candidate against the GOP nominee in the 2024 presidential campaign. While the electorate is evenly split between the two parties, there’s no such close division about Biden. NBC News reported that its exit poll on Tuesday found that ‘two-thirds of voters (68 percent) do not want Biden to run for president again in 2024.’ … The gap between Biden’s approval ratings and those of his party underscores what a massive drag he is on Democratic electoral prospects.” (11/12/22)
