Tragic news strikes the Biden family from out of nowhere

Everyone knows Biden hasn’t been well. But no one could’ve guessed it would all end like this.

Because tragic news struck the Biden family from out of nowhere.

A poll by CBS News and YouGov found that all three of the remaining big Republican candidates are ahead of President Joe Biden in a made-up November general election.

According to a poll released last week, the existing president is trailing former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and former Ambassador Nikki Haley among potential voters.

Haley led Biden by eight points, 53% to 45%, a larger margin than Barack Obama’s 2008 triumph against John McCain. DeSantis led Biden by three percent (51% to 48%).

When the poll asked respondents to choose between Trump and Biden, the most likely general election matchup, Trump won by a slightly smaller margin of 50% to 48%.

Only Haley’s lead exceeded the poll’s 3.1% margin of error.

The two-point gap between the two odds-on major party frontrunners is consistent with a Reuters poll conducted last month. The poll also showed Trump leading Biden by two points, 38% to 36%, with the remaining 26% selecting “All others/Don’t know.”

While the incumbent Democratic president has had dismal approval ratings for the last few years in office, his popularity has apparently dropped to new lows.

According to an ABC News/Ipsos poll released on Sunday, only 33% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance, Fox News said. This is a decrease from his 37% approval rating reported by a Gallup poll a few months ago.

Fox News said that Biden’s low approval rate makes him the least popular president since George W. Bush in 2008, when the Great Recession and the financial crisis were at their worst, as well as the fallout from the Iraq War and the government’s response to Hurricane Katrina.

Trump’s lowest recorded approval rating for his whole four-year presidency was 36%, three points higher than Biden’s current rate.

According to journalist Joe Concha, Biden is polling in the 20s among independents and “hemorrhaging support from Black and Hispanic voters.”

“No president has won re-election with approval below 40%,” Concha told Fox News. “Biden is currently at 33% overall.”

According to the Daily Wire, Biden’s chances of gaining a second term are hampered by the country’s bad economic outlook.

Only 21% of voters think they would be better off financially with Biden in office, and more than a third of Democrats even say that having a strong economy is a more significant concern than having a functioning democracy.

Although Biden is currently at a disadvantage in hypothetical matchups with the three Republican candidates, almost all experts believe that, absent an unexpected surprise, he will face Trump in November’s general election.

On Monday night, Trump won the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses by a comfortable margin. The former president won 51.0% of the vote, about 30 points ahead of DeSantis, who came in second with 21.3%. Haley finished third with 19.1% support.

In the process, Trump won 98 of the state’s 99 counties. He only lost in deep-blue Johnson County, where Haley defeated him by one vote.

After the results in Iowa became evident, Biden’s campaign openly recognized the possibility of a 2020 election rematch.

“Looks like Donald Trump just won Iowa,” the president’s account wrote on X (formerly Twitter) Monday at 11:20 pm ET. “He’s the clear front runner on the other side at this point.”

The electoral college vote, rather than the popular vote, determines who wins the presidential election in the United States. As a result, a candidate can win the presidential election while receiving fewer votes than his or her opponents.

This has happened five times in American history, and the most recent occurrence was when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
