(DailyWire) It’s not just Republicans who want President Joe Biden out of office.
A new poll found that 64% of Democratic voters want someone else to run in the 2024 presidential campaign. Biden’s approval rating is down to a third of all Americans, according to the New York Times/Siena College poll. Just 26% of Democratic voters said the party should renominate Biden.
The poll also found that just 13% of those surveyed think the nation was on the right track. That’s the lowest point in Times’ polling since the financial crisis of 2008.
In addition to Democrats, independents have also soured on Biden. More than two-thirds (69%) of independents disapprove of Biden’s job performance — with nearly half (48%) disapproving “strongly.”
The bad-news poll followed another report in the Times that scrutinized Biden’s age and lucidity in a way the liberal news outlet has hitherto avoided.
The piece pointed out that Biden, at 79 years old, is already older than Ronald Reagan was when he left office. And the paper said Biden would be 86 at the end of his tenure,” ‘testing the outer boundaries of age and the presidency.’”
The paper tried to run some cover for the beleaguered president, who often misspeaks in speeches and looks frail. The piece cited sources saying he” ‘remained intellectually engaged, asking smart questions at meetings, grilling aides on points of dispute, [and] calling them late at night.’”
