According to the results of a study that was published on Thursday, two-thirds of Americans believe that Joe Biden being elected to a second term as president would be detrimental to the country.

According to a poll conducted by CNN, sixty-six percent of respondents questioned stated that a victory for Joe Biden would be either a "disaster" or a "setback." The same might be said for Donald Trump, who served as the 45th President of the United States.

The overall favorable rating for Vice President Biden is 35%, which is a drop from January's figure of 40%, as The Daily Caller reported.

The survey showed that just sixty percent of Democrats indicated that they would choose him as their first option if the primary were held today. This indicates that the president is up against substantial competition in the race for the Democratic nominee for president.

How Other Candidates are Looking

According to the results of the survey, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a lawyer and contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, is in second place with 20% of the vote. Marianne Williamson, a well-known author, finishes in third place with 8%.

According to the results of the survey, almost the same proportion of respondents would choose someone who is neither Biden nor Kennedy nor Williamson. Five percent of respondents indicated that they have "no opinion."

Five hundred and fifty percent of respondents who identified themselves as Democrats stated that they "might change their mind" about the candidate they now support.

The Democratic National Convention (DNC) has come under fire for refusing to host debates among candidates for vice president despite the strong polling numbers of Biden's opponents.

Both Kennedy and Williamson have voiced their dissatisfaction with the lack of discussion, despite the fact that parties typically do not conduct debates while there is an incumbent in office.

“Disappointed certainly, because I believe in democracy. I believe that the political party should stay out of the issue until the primary voters have weighed in, and then whoever wins the primaries, that’s who the DNC, or the RNC for that matter, should support,” Williamson said.

“Mr. Kennedy believes the American people want and deserve debates. He continues to ask President Biden to join in free and open discussion of those range of important matters which concern all Americans,” Kennedy’s campaign told the Daily Caller.

CNN's Take

CNN delivered the "horrible news" of their polling data for Biden as the network's latest polling offered a grim forecast ahead of his 2024 reelection bid.

"Horrible news, horrible for Joe Biden," CNN anchor Jake Tapper reacted to the poll. "Those are some bad numbers," he later added.

CNN political director David Challian offered an analysis of the poll saying "[Trump's] hardcore supporters are more into him than perhaps Biden's hardcore supporters are into him."

"Yeah, it's worse for Biden but for both of them, most of the American people think electing them would be a disaster or a setback for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump, the current Democratic and Republican frontrunner," Tapper told Chalian, to which he replied, "This is not an election the American people want."
