Biden’s approval rating nosedives to 31% and hits the lowest in Iowa

Are you sure you want to run again Joe? Biden’s national approval rating nosedives to 31% and hits the lowest in Iowa of any President in history at 27%: More disastrous polls show more than 70% of Americans DON’T want him to run in 2024

  • Just 31 percent of adults say they approve of the way Biden is handling the presidency while 60 percent disapprove 
  • A whopping 71 percent of Americans do not want to see Biden run again in 2024 – including a majority of Democrats, 54 percent
  • The findings contrast with support for Donald Trump on the Republican side – 69 percent of Republicans said they want to see him run again in 2024
  • Republicans in Congress scored even worse than Biden by the Quinnipiac poll, where 23 percent of respondents approved, 68 percent disapproved 

More Americans are unhappy with President Biden’s job in office than at any point in his presidency, according to a dim new Quinnipiac poll. 

Just 31 percent of adults say they approve of the way Biden is handling the presidency while 60 percent disapprove. Among registered voters, 33 percent said they approved while 59 percent disapprove. 

The low approval spelled bad news for Biden’s 2024 prospects.  

A whopping 71 percent of Americans do not want to see Biden run again in 2024 – including a majority of Democrats, 54 percent. Only 24 percent do want to see Biden run for a second term. Forty percent of Democrats said they would like to see him run.

The findings contrast with support for Donald Trump on the Republican side – 69 percent of Republicans said they want to see him run again in 2024, 27 percent said they would not.

 ‘Among all Americans, 60 percent said they did not want to see Trump as the GOP nominee. 

Things are looking worse for Biden in Iowa, historically the first state in the nation to caucus typically seen as a credible indicator of how a candidate will fair nationally.

Only 23 percent of Iowans think Biden should run again in 2024, 76 percent think he should not, according to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll. Thirty-two percent of Iowans think Trump should run again. 

Voters were even less enthused about Vice President Kamala Harris, who would typically step in as the Democratic nominee should Biden bow out. Only 26 percent of respondents had a favorable view of Harris as a 2024 candidate. 

‘There’s scant enthusiasm for a replay of either a Trump or Biden presidency,’ said Tim Malloy, a Quinnipiac University polling analyst.

‘But while Trump still holds sway on his base, President Biden is underwater when it comes to support from his own party.’

Republicans in Congress scored even worse than Biden by the Quinnipiac poll, where 23 percent of respondents approved, 68 percent disapproved. Democrats were running at a negative 30 – 63 percent approval and notably the Supreme Court had higher approval than both, 37 percent approve, 56 percent disapprove. 

Biden has insisted that he intends to run again but chronic gaffes have undermined public assurances that he’ll still be up to the task at 82 years old in 2024. 

On Wednesday Biden raised eyebrows by announcing he had cancer in an accidental misstep. Speaking about how pollution causes cancer, the president said. ‘That’s why I — and so damn many other people I grew up with — have cancer,’ he said. Biden had several non-melanoma skin cancers removed before he became president.

But inflation may yet be the biggest dead weight on the Biden White House. Running at 9.1 percent – a 40-year-high – many families are being priced out of their day-to-day life with two-thirds of Americans saying they’ve been forced back to cut down on restaurants and entertainment. 

As the Fed tries to tighten monetary policy and tamp down prices, economists fear a looming recession. 

Biden scored his highest numbers by the Quinnipiac poll for handling coronavirus, 50 percent,  and his lowest for the economy, at 28 percent approval. Forty percent of respondents approved of his handling of the Russia-Ukraine war and 32 percent approved of his handling of gun violence. 

Despite predictions of a red wave in the upcoming midterm elections, a total of 44 percent of respondents said they wanted Republicans to take the House in November, while 45 percent wanted Democrats to hold onto it. 

In the Senate, 45 percent want Democrats to maintain control, 45 percent say Republicans should. 

Democrats currently hold a majority in the House and the Senate is split, with Harris casting a tie-breaking vote. Most legislation still needs 10 Republican votes to pass through both chambers and become law.
