Jake Tapper of CNN reported on the latest poll results regarding President Joe Biden. He didn’t attempt to soft-soap it.
Tapper reported on Thursday CNN’s latest poll that showed a significant drop in Joe Biden’s support. He called it horrible news for Biden.
According to the poll, a majority of Americans believe that if Biden were to be reelected, it would have a negative impact on the country.
The poll showed that only 33 percent of the surveyed individuals believe that Biden winning a second term would be a step forward or a triumph for the country.
Forty-one percent of voters believe that electing Biden would be a disaster, while 26 percent think it would be a setback for the nation.
According to the latest poll, Biden’s favorability decreased from 42 percent in December to 35 percent.
CNN political director David Challian remarked that the number was exceptionally low.
According to Challian, Biden’s backing from independents decreased from 35 percent in December to 26 percent in the latest survey.
He stated that it was a significant warning sign.
The poll indicated that Biden was favored to be the Democrats’ nominee for 2024, but Challian noted that there was a weakness beneath the figures. Around 60% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters are in favor of Biden, while 20% are in favor of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and 8% are in favor of author Marianne Williamson. The remaining 8% support someone else.
According to Challian, Kennedy’s support from independents could be a warning sign.
He pointed out that Kennedy received 32 percent support from Democratic-leaning independents, while Biden received 40 percent.
The survey conducted by CNN was not the sole negative development for Biden. According to a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, 62 percent of those surveyed expressed worry about Biden’s mental capacity as the 2024 election nears.
Sixty-nine percent of survey participants under 45 expressed concerns about Biden’s mental condition. The analysis also found that 64 percent of non-white respondents and 63 percent of suburban residents shared these concerns.
The margin of error for the survey was 3.4 percentage points.
