Americans are pretty upset with President Brandon. His policies are making their lives worse in most every way and they’re waking up to it.
Thanks to that realization of what could most charitably be called his incompetence, his support has plummetted, with some recent polls showing he has only a 36% approval rate.
But Brandon’s polling problems don’t end there. According to a recent poll conducted by Issues and Insights and TIPP Insights, only about 22% of Americans want Biden at the top of the ticket again in 2024:
Just when it seemed President Joe Biden could get no lower in the public’s political esteem, a new I&I/TIPP Poll of Americans’ preference for the 2024 Democratic presidential ballot is a shocker: Just over one out of five want Joe Biden back at the top of the Democrats’ ticket in three years.
[…]Biden was named by just 22% of those asked
And while Brandon is doing badly, probably thanks to both his policies and seeming senility, he’s actually doing the best of those within his administration, with other high-profile Democrats doing similarly horribly. Again according to the poll:

12% mentioned Vice President Kamala Harris, whose abrasive style, lack of preparation, and revolving-door personnel changes have drawn criticism even from formerly friendly Democrats and the left-leaning media.
None of the rest rose above low single-digits: Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg garnered 4%, while New York Rep. Andrea Ocasio-Cortez, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy, and Georgia 2018 gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams each attracted 3% of the support.
New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet all got thumbs up from 2%.
Among those failing to breach even the 1% support barrier included Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.
Those are truly terrible numbers. In fact, they’re about what unpopular political gadflies like Mitt Romney got when Republican voters were asked who they wanted to run in 2024. Former President Trump is the first choice for about two-thirds of the GOP.
By contrast, when Independents and Democrats were asked who they want to run, which should theoretically raise Biden’s support a bit since anti-Biden Republicans have been screamed out, the numbers he and his associates receive are barely better, again according to the TIPP poll:
But only 8% of independents and other non-major party voters also want Biden back as Democratic standard-bearer. And 10% want Harris, not Biden. For Biden, that suggests near non-existent support among independents, the swing voters who make up a third or more of all those who go to the polls each election.
Even Democrats seem less than enthused about Biden holding the top spot. Just 37% want him there. And only 16% give Harris the nod as presidential standard-bearer, alarming given that Vice President Harris is next in line to be president should Biden not complete his term in office.
So, while Brandon and friends are hovering at extremely low levels, Trump is maintaining his base of support better than ever.
