'Horrible for Joe Biden': CNN breaks down new poll showing 'big warning sign' for Biden's re-election hopes

A new CNN poll shows that a majority of Americans believe President Joe Biden winning re-election would be bad for America.

According to the poll, 66% of Americans — or two-thirds! — believe that Biden winning a second term in the White House would be a "disaster" or "setback" for the nation. Just 33% of respondents said Biden winning re-election would be a "step forward" (27%) or a "triumph" (7%).

"Horrible news, horrible for Joe Biden," CNN anchor Jake Tapper reacted on his show Thursday.

Biden's approval rating may explain why such a large number of Americans believe he should not win re-election.

The poll found that just 35% of Americans approve of Biden, while 57% disapprove — a seismic 22-point gap. Those figures are by far the worst for Biden in CNN's poll since his presidency began in January 2021.

Explaining that Biden's approval rating is "remarkably low," CNN political director David Chalian explained on Tapper's show how the breakdown along political lines shows it is actually worse than it first looks.

"Look at this by party: We looked from December to now. So a little take down among Democrats, 82% to 79% favorable. That's his hometown team," Chalian explained.

"But look at this decline among independents from December, 35% favorable in December — he is now down to 26% favorable with independents," he continued. "Critical voters in the electorate, Jake. That's a big warning sign."

Unfortunately for Biden, the CNN poll is not an outlier.

Two weeks ago, an ABC News/Washington Post survey found Biden's approval to be 20 points under water. It also found, in hypothetical matchups, that Biden would lose to both Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by sizable margins.

Meanwhile, an NBC News poll last month found that 70% of Americans don't want Biden to run for re-election.

The onslaught of poor polling is invoking fears among Democrats that Biden will lose re-election — or, even worse for Democrats, lose to Trump in a 2024 rematch.
