A recent CNN poll found that President Biden’s overall approval rating is 39%, and just 74% among Democrats. The poll also found that Biden is neck and neck with most of his potential Republican opponents in hypothetical head-to-heads.
Some Democrats and Biden allies have argued that it is too early to put much stock in head-to-head matchups, and that Biden has a strong track record to run on. However, the poll is only the latest in a string of surveys that show Biden’s approval rating is stagnant and his age continues to be a concern for voters.
David Axelrod, a former Obama White House and campaign strategist, said that Biden is in “deep, deep trouble” if the election were held today. He added that Biden will need to “win ugly” if he wants to be re-elected.
The poll’s findings are a major setback for Biden, who is hoping to win a second term in office. He will need to do a lot to convince voters that he is the best person to lead the country.
Here are some additional takeaways from the poll:
- Biden’s approval rating is low, and it has been declining for months.
- Biden’s age is a major concern for voters.
- Biden is neck and neck with most of his potential Republican opponents in hypothetical head-to-heads.
- Biden will need to do a lot to convince voters that he is the best person to lead the country.
