Ignoring polls that show Americans are sick of him, President Biden yelled at a reporter who pointed out that even Democrats don't want him to run for reelection, saying, "They want me to run." This is despite the fact that the polls show Americans are fed up with him.
In a poll that was conducted by the New York Times and Siena College and published this week, the respondents indicated that although they would vote for him in 2024, 92 percent of Democratic voters preferred someone other than Biden to run for president. Only 26 percent of those who identify as Democratic wanted Biden to run again.
A reporter approached President Biden at the end of a garden party that was held at the White House and said, "What is your message to Democrats who don't want you to run again?"
Biden became agitated and remarked, "They want me to run," which prompted the reporter to retort, "Two-thirds say they don't."
“Read the polls. Jack, read the polls!" President Joe Biden yelled. “You guys are all the same.”
The reporter persisted, saying that "a majority of Democrats say they don't want you to run in 2024."
“92 percent said I did. They’d vote for me,” Biden retorted.
A meager thirteen percent of respondents to a poll conducted by The New York Times said they thought the United States was heading in the right direction. This is the lowest percentage since the 2008 financial crisis. There was a near-unanimous consensus among young Democrats that Joe Biden should not run for president in 2024; 94 percent of Democrats under the age of 30 preferred another candidate over Biden.
Only 28 percent of respondents to a poll that was conducted by Politico and the Morning Consult and published on Tuesday thought that Joe Biden should run for president in 2024. It was determined that 64 percent of everyone who participated in the survey did not want Biden to run for reelection. In addition, the survey discovered that only a minuscule 24 percent of all women wanted him to run again, and only 11 percent wanted him to run "definitely."
On the other hand, the survey discovered that 64 percent of Americans believe he should not run for office again: 46% of Americans believe Biden should “definitely not” run, while 18% think he should “probably not” run again.
According to the results of a poll conducted by the Associated Press and the NORC and made public on June 29, it was found that 85 percent of Americans were of the opinion that the country was moving in the wrong path. In light of the fact that Biden's approval rating remained at its current low of 39 percent, 78 percent of Democrats shared this viewpoint. The same survey found that only 28 percent of respondents approved of how Biden was handling the economy, which is a significant drop from the 51 percent who had approved of his job performance exactly one year before.
In that same poll. 67% of Democrats described the national economy as poor as opposed to 37% the year before.
