Joe Biden has 28% of the American public’s support to run for re-election. The news comes at the one-year anniversary of him moving his Democrat administration into the White House in Washington DC.
Biden on Wednesday said firmly that Kamala Harris will be his running mate should he run for reelection in 2024, but what someone should have asked him, is does he think Harris will really be running with Hillary Clinton in 2024.
“Asked by a reporter whether he was satisfied with Harris’ work leading the voting rights effort for the White House and whether he will commit to putting her on the ticket once again, Biden was direct.“Yes and yes,” he said simply. When asked to explain, Biden added, “There’s no need to,” CNN reported.
The news hit like a lead balloon, and on Thursday, as reported by AP news that Biden’s month-long string of humiliating polls numbers about his approval, had not gotten any better.
On Wednesday, at one of Biden’s few press conferences since taking office, he was asked about running for re-election, and Thursday the news came that Biden really has little chance of getting that far.
Check it out as the AP reported:
“President Joe Biden ends his first year in the White House with a clear majority of Americans for the first time disapproving of his handling of the presidency in the face of an unrelenting pandemic and roaring inflation, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
More Americans disapprove than approve of how Biden is handling his job as president, 56% to 43%. As of now, just 28% of Americans say they want Biden to run for reelection in 2024, including only 48% of Democrats.
Asked on Wednesday at a wide-ranging news conference about his flagging popularity, Biden responded, “I don’t believe the polls.”
It’s a stark reversal from early in Biden’s presidency.
In July, 59% of Americans said they approved of Biden’s job performance in an AP-NORC poll. His approval rating dipped to 50% by late September in the aftermath of the chaotic and bloody U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan and amid surging coronavirus infections and the administration’s fitful efforts to push economic, infrastructure and tax policies through Congress.”

The poor ratings for Biden come just days after the left pushed a 2024 Hillary Clinton attempt to get back into the White House.
According to the New York Post:
“Could a third time be the charm for Hillary Clinton?
That’s the case made by two prominent Democrats who claim a “perfect storm” of President Biden’s plummeting job approval ratings, Vice President Kamala Harris’ own unpopularity and the commander-in-chief’s advanced age could provide an opening for the former first lady and secretary of state.
“She is already in an advantageous position to become the 2024 Democratic nominee,” political consultant Doug Schoen and former Manhattan Borough President Andrew Stein write in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal of the 74-year-old Clinton.
“She is an experienced national figure who is younger than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach from the disorganized and unpopular one the party is currently taking,” they add.
