A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows that the country is in a particularly rough spot.
After 4 years of leftist lies and fearmongering about Trump's presidency, and two years of the disastrous reality of a Biden presidency, American's think that both parties' most likely nominees being elected might be the worst thing that could happen to the country.
In a striking expression of the profound pessimism and polarization currently afflicting U.S. politics — as well as a growing aversion to both parties' presidential front-runners — a plurality of registered voters now say it would be "the worst thing that could happen" if either President Biden (39%) or former President Donald Trump (41%) were to win the White House again in 2024, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.
This suggests both parties might should consider going in a new direction.
Only about half as many voters say a second Trump term would be "the best thing that could happen" (22%). A mere 8% say the same about a second Biden term.
At least Donald Trump has some support from his base with 22% of Americans thinking he's the best thing that could happen.
Biden has virtually no fans.
If I may, however, a second Biden term is far from the worst possible thing that could happen.
But seriously, we are in a very bad place in American politics if the last two people to be president are both considered the worst possible people to be the next president.
This poll is much worse for Biden than for Trump, considering that Trump has his personal base of support and Biden is the failing incumbent.
Asked whether the president should even run again in 2024, only 18% of Americans say yes — including a mere 29% of those who voted for him in 2020. Far more of Biden's own voters (46%) say he should not. Why? A plurality of them (37%) say he would be a "weaker" candidate in 2024 than he was in 2020.
Only 29% of the people who voted for Joe Biden in 2020 think he should even be on the ballot in 2024.
That is what you call a disastrously failed presidency.
Unfortunately for the Donald, more people simply hate Biden as opposed to actually missing Trump.
But when 2024 rolls around (if the country is still standing), it will be hard to argue we are better off under Biden than we were under Trump.
