President Biden’s popularity rating floundered in several polls amid Democratic doubts about his 2024 outlook.
Biden’s endorsement leaked down to 39%, with 47% “strongly” disapproving of the president, according to a new USA Today/Suffolk poll. According to the poll, only 16% of Americans “strongly” approve of the president.

The poll also showed a major disparity between Americans who think the country is on the right track and on the wrong track, with 71% believing the United States is “on the wrong track”.
Forty-six percent of Democrats also think the United States is heading in the wrong direction.
In fact, only 16% of Americans surveyed said they thought America was on the right track as a nation.
Additionally, Americans were split 40% to 40% on whether they would vote for a Republican or a Democrat to walk the halls of Congress if the election were held today.
The negative results follow a Fox News poll that also found support for the president hitting a wall, with a whopping 57% of Americans viewing Biden unfavorably.
Not only does he have a high unfavorable rating with voters overall, but he is also reaching new levels of disappointment among his core voters: 60% of voters under 30, 55% of Hispanics, 53% of women and 18% of Democrats. see record negative ratings.
His negative points are also at the highest point of his presidency among the liberals (28%) and the moderates (59%).
“It’s a very difficult situation for Biden,” said Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who leads the Fox News poll alongside Republican Daron Shaw. “If he decides to stabilize his ratings on the left, it could easily lead to further erosion down the middle and hurt his re-election prospects. But if he doesn’t address his issues on the left, his ratings could really plummet. .”
The abysmal numbers come as even Democratic Party progressives signal they may not think Biden is the guy to tip his hat to in 2024.
DEMOCRATS OPENLY SNACK ON BIDEN’S AGE, EFFECTIVENESS AS 2024 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ARRIVES
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., didn’t answer yes — and instead focused on this year’s midterms — when asked if she would support President Biden if he chose to stand for re-election in 2024.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez was asked about her feelings about the president seeking a second term, and she responded very delicately.
“I just want to ask about President Biden. He says he’s going to run in 2024. Will you support him?” CNN host Dana Bash asked.
“You know, if the president chooses to run again in 2024, I mean, first of all, I’m focused on winning that majority right now and preserving a majority this year in 2022,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So we’ll cross that bridge when we get there…I think if the president has a vision and that’s something we’re certainly all ready to entertain and look at when the time comes.”
To that, Bash noted, “That’s not a yes.”

“You know, I think we should approve when we get there,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “I think the president has done a really good job so far. And, you know, should he run again? I think I… you know, I think it’s… we’re going to throw a a look.”
Progressives wavering in their support for Biden is not a good sign for the president, especially as the GOP is poised to make some serious gains in the 2022 midterm elections this year.
