In a recent Gallup survey, it was revealed that support for President Joe Biden’s potential reelection has plummeted to a measly 38%. Yikes! This is the lowest it has been in a whopping 32 years. To add insult to injury, his approval rating in the same poll was a lackluster 41%. Double yikes!
This news couldn’t come at a worse time for the liberal president, as it follows a slew of other polls that show him trailing former President Donald Trump. And guess what? Many of those polls indicate that voters aren’t exactly thrilled with the idea of either Biden or Trump making a comeback to the White House. It’s like choosing between broccoli and Brussels sprouts – no thanks!

But hold on, folks, there’s a glimmer of hope for ol’ Biden. Gallup tried to sprinkle a little bit of optimism by pointing out that past presidents who were in a similar boat ended up turning the tide and securing a second term. However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. None of those presidents were in quite the dire straits that Biden finds himself in. In fact, the numbers for Biden are downright dismal in comparison.
And if you thought the news couldn’t get any worse, think again. It turns out that voters aren’t exactly doing cartwheels for Congress either. Only a paltry 24% of them believe that members of the House and Senate deserve to be reelected. Someone grab the aloe vera because that’s a burn!
But wait, there’s a twist – despite their lack of enthusiasm for Congress, a whopping 55% of voters still want their own representatives to be reelected. It’s like saying, “Congress stinks, but not my guy!”
So, what’s the bottom line according to the pollster? Well, folks, it’s pretty clear that voters are feeling rather lukewarm about the majority of our elected officials. And as for Biden, his numbers may have hit rock bottom, but hey, history tells us that there’s a chance they could bounce back. Let’s just hope he’s taking notes from Clinton and Obama, and not from Trump and the elder George Bush. After all, nobody wants to be left out in the cold for a second term, right?
