President Biden’s Approval Ratings Remain Low Amidst Speculation of Potential Replacement
According to recent polling data from FiveThirtyEight, President Joe Biden’s current approval rating stands at 39%, making him the second most unpopular President in modern American history.
Only former President Jimmy Carter had a lower approval rating at 29% during a comparable period in his presidency.
The Afghanistan withdrawal played a significant role in the decline of Biden’s approval ratings, which have struggled to surpass 50% since the tragic incident that claimed the lives of 13 American servicemembers.
In comparison, Biden’s disapproval rating is nearing an all-time high, leading to concerns about his prospects for the 2024 election.
Some political figures, such as Roger Stone, suggest that the Democrats may consider replacing Biden with someone like Michelle Obama, citing his current unpopularity as a potential obstacle to re-election.
However, while Biden faces challenges, one factor keeping him in the game is Vice President Kamala Harris’ even lower approval rating.
The White House may encounter significant difficulties in winning an election with such dismal polling numbers, reminiscent of the unfavorable figures seen during Jimmy Carter’s time.
As speculation swirls about the Democratic nominee in 2024, questions arise about whether Joe Biden will be the candidate or if Kamala Harris will take his place. The situation remains uncertain as the political landscape evolves.
