Joe Biden Hits Rock Bottom, Trails Hillary Clinton In New Poll

Spread the love

President Joe Biden is coming off the worst year in modern presidential politics. His approval numbers are lower every time you look never seeming to bottom out. His Vice President Kamala Harris is no help because she is politically toxic.

She can’t get through a friendly interview without raising concern about her competence. It can’t all be bad editing and clips taken out of context as her defenders say.

So as Biden and Harris lead a doomed charge towards the midterms most are wondering how bad will it get for Biden and the Dems. We may finally have an answer. Biden is less popular than Hillary Clinton, one of if not the most disliked people in recent political history, according to a stunning new USA Today poll.

“That’s something that’s got to give President Biden pause and other potential Democratic challengers pause,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center.

The poll found that if Hillary entered the 2024 presidential race she would beat Biden by 3 points in the Dem primary. 

The poll found that Trump would beat Biden in a head-to-head and he would beat Desantis in a GOP primary. The poll also found that DeSantis would beat Biden in a head-to-head race.

From USA Today:

Another prominent Florida Republican – Sen. Marco Rubio – currently leads in his re-election bid, according to the poll. The poll gave Rubio a 49%-41% lead over Democratic challenger U.S. Rep. Val Demings, while the remaining 10% are undecided.

While Demings looks like a long shot at this point, Paleologos said the data indicates many voters don’t know much about Demings, a former police chief from Orlando.

That could change: Paleologos pointed out that among poll respondents who know of both candidates, Demings actually leads Rubio 51%-42%.
