The polling numbers for Joe Biden are so bad that Democrats and the media are now openly admitting he has “a big f***ing’ problem, as concerns mount about his 2024 chances.
Biden’s job approval figures plummeted to the low 40s, while some polls now favor former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2020 rematch.
There is also the issue of Biden’s age.
Voters have raised concerns about the 80-year-old president’s ability to lead effectively.
Last week, Brexit leader Nigel Farage predicted that Democrats would drop “senile” Biden as their candidate to keep their grip on power in Washington.
Writing in the British newspaper The Express, Farage said the “American public was “misled” in the 2020 elections and was kept in the dark from Biden’s “obvious deficiencies.”
Meanwhile, Democratic strategist James Carville recently weighed on Biden’s dilemma during a conversation on HBO host Bill Maher’s “Club Random.”
“If we had somebody under 60 and ran against Trump, we would get 55%,” Carville said.
“I don’t like when people take one poll, and you extrapolate too much of it. I’ve seen the last eight polls, and they’re all the same,” he added.
“Seventy-three percent to 77% of the country does not want Biden to run again — I’m just going to round that to 75. Okay?” Carville added.
“That’s a big f***ing number, man,” he said, suggesting the polling for Biden is a bad omen.
There are 405 days left until the 2024 election, and it’s not looking good for Biden.
Over the past few weeks, Biden faced increased pressure to drop out of the 2024 races as issues like the impeachment inquiry against him, the border crisis, and a looming government shutdown all pile up.
Even “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said Democrats should concede off the air that Biden is too old to seek another term.
Meanwhile, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius called on Biden to end his 2024 campaign with Vice President Kamala Harris, who is also struggling with abysmal approval numbers.
“It’s painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished,” Ignatius wrote.
“But if he and Harris campaign together in 2024, I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement — which was stopping Trump.”
Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang shared his position on Biden, writing on X:
“I’m hearing that recent polling has shaken some Dems enough that potential primary challengers to Biden from within the party are taking another look at it.”
Biden regularly got about 60% to 70% support in polls this past month, while Robert Kennedy Jr. hovered between single digits and numbers in the teens.
Earlier this month, Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted Biden may drop out of the 2024 race, suggesting Kamala Harris could take his place.
There is also another competitor who could enter the battle.
Rep. Dean Philips (D-MN) suggested he could challenge Biden for their party’s nomination but noted that “there are people who are more proximate, better prepared to campaign with national organizations, national name recognition.”
While Democrats panic about Biden, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed his polling problem, saying there are “just polls.”
“Polls are polls — right? — they are going to be all over the place,” KJP said.
“They are going to — they’re going to — you know, they don’t tell the whole story, actually. And that is just the way a poll is,” she added.
Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), who was picked as Biden’s re-election campaign co-chair, seemed more worried about Biden
“Right now, the polls head-to-head are more concerning than I would expect, but I would so much rather be in this position of having an incredible record for our president to run on,” he told CNN.
There is also pushback to the negative headlines for Biden due to the polling.
The Washington Post suggested its latest poll was an “outlier” compared to other public polls, noting the “unusual makeup of Trump’s and Biden’s coalitions in this survey.”
ABC News Political Director Rick Klein said their poll had some “quirks” and “oddities around the number of black voters and Hispanic voters, the younger voters who seem to be supporting Donald Trump.”
But Republican in Congress, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) argued that the polling numbers are no fluke.
“It’s not an outlier,” the House Republican Conference chairwoman said.
“The elitist Left and their stenographers in the mainstream media should talk to more voters across America. President Trump has historic support in Upstate New York and all across the country!”
Biden does have a “big f***king polling problem,” and Democrats knows it.
