U.S. President Joe Biden's approval rating has plummeted to a record low of 40%, according to a recent poll, indicating a significant shift in public sentiment. The majority of voters have expressed dissatisfaction with his handling of foreign policy, marking a challenging period in his presidency.
Biden Loses Ground with Young Voters
Biden, who was favored by voters aged 18 to 34 during the 2020 presidential election, is now less popular among this demographic than former President Donald Trump, as per NBC's findings. Despite Trump's slight lead, the margin is minimal enough to swing back in Biden's favor as the country gears up for the primary season.
Divergence in Polling Data
While CNN's findings align with these results, contradicting data from Fox News, Quinnipiac, and CBS polls show Biden leading Trump among younger voters. Looking into the future, Biden could face further challenges, as a poll from New Hampshire primary voters shows potential Republican candidate Nikki Haley outperforming Biden in a match-up.
Election Prospects for 2024
Across the political spectrum, voters are seeking alternatives for the 2024 presidential elections, expressing concern over the age of both Biden and Trump. Key issues like economy, immigration, and gun policy are at the forefront of voters' minds. With this backdrop, Biden's approval ratings have hit their lowest point this year, with Trump leading in five out of six likely determining states for 2024.
The 2024 United States presidential election, scheduled for Tuesday, November 5, will see voters elect a president and vice president for a term of four years. If Trump wins, he would become the second president to achieve a second nonconsecutive term after Grover Cleveland.
Despite the shifting odds with the election just under a year out, Biden and Trump remain the betting favorites. With the upcoming presidential primaries in sight, candidates are strategizing for the challenging race ahead.
