Poll Shows Americans View Biden As Lame-Duck One-Term President

AMAC Exclusive

Washington’s worst kept secret is the assumption, correct or not, that President Joe Biden will not seek reelection in 2024. Apparently, the majority of the American public was let in on the secret, too. According to new polling released by Quinnipiac University, a majority of Americans, 54 percent, believe Biden will not run for president again.

At 78 years old, President Biden was already the oldest person ever to be elected President. If he were to run again and win, he would be 82 at the time of his second inauguration. According to findings in the same Quinnipiac poll, nearly half of Americans, 48 percent, believe it’s bad for the country if Biden runs for president in 2024, while only 37 percent believe it would be good for the country if Biden ran again.

Biden himself seems uncertain if he will run – or if he will physically be able to. At his first news conference as president back in March, Biden said he planned to seek reelection in 2024. “My plan is to run for reelection. That’s my expectation,” Biden told reporters at the time. However, he later followed up and clarified that his decision was not set in stone when a reporter pressed him to answer more definitively on his reelection plans. “I said, ‘that is my expectation’… I’m a great respecter of fate. I’ve never been able to plan four-and-a-half, three-and-a-half years ahead for certain.”

While it is not exactly clear what Biden means when he says he “respects fate,” his statements nonetheless highlight the uncertainty of his political future. If Biden ultimately opts not to seek reelection as so many assume, he will be the first president since Lyndon Johnson to voluntarily become a one-term president.

But Biden has surprised people before. By conventional wisdom, he was never supposed to be in this position to begin with. After two disastrous past presidential runs in 1988 and 2008 and declining to run in 2016, insiders assumed that Joe Biden’s political career was dead.

Even when Biden ran in 2020, it was widely assumed he would not win, as his campaign repeatedly look dead. Normally, a former Vice President might be expected to discourage most challengers from entering the race. But nearly 30 other Democrat candidates ran to oppose Biden. Even the President he had served loyally under for 8 years in the White House tried to convince him multiple times not to run. “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama reportedly told Biden in the spring of 2019 before he announced.

Biden went on to get shellacked in the Iowa caucuses in a horrible fourth place finish. He slipped further in New Hampshire when he came in a shocking fifth place. And after suffering a runner-up finish to Bernie Sanders in Nevada, it looked like his campaign was over. That was until the Democrat political machine went into full panic mode and realized that socialist Bernie Sanders was about to be on a runaway train to the party’s nomination if they didn’t step in and stop him.

The rest is history. Biden won the next primary in South Carolina thanks to strong support among African-American voters and a key endorsement from his old friend Jim Clyburn, and then all of the pieces fell into place—just barely. Nearly every Democrat candidate in the race subsequently ended their campaigns and endorsed Biden to deny Bernie Sanders the nomination – the plan apparently worked just like the Democrat party establishment drew it up.

Of course, Biden would eventually go on to become president, although the election remains a fraught issue to this day. 42,918 votes spread across the battleground states of Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia were the difference between Electoral College victory and defeat for Joe Biden in the official tally. For comparison, Biden’s 2020 vote margin is smaller than the 77,774 votes spread across Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan in 2016 that propelled Donald Trump to the White House four years earlier.

The reality is that despite a once-in-a-generation pandemic that shut off the world’s strongest economy, widespread protests and riots spurred on by left-wing activists not seen in a generation, and the unprecedented advocacy of the mainstream media and Big Tech reporting outright lies to help defeat the incumbent president, Joe Biden officially still only managed to eek out one of the closest victories in the history of the American presidency – not to mention Democrats lost seats in the House and only secured a 50-50 split in the Senate. That means Biden was sworn in not with a clear mandate, but by way of a very ambivalent electorate and in a clear position of vulnerability.

Nevertheless, President Biden has proceeded to ignore the warning signs over his first eight months in office and has governed more radically than any administration in recent history. The political consequences for President Biden’s defiance of voters’ wishes are beginning to emerge.

Last week marked President Biden’s lowest approval rating of his presidency in the RealClearPolitics average. Trillions of dollars in new spending has given way to rising inflation, which threatens the economic stability of American families. A complete reversal of the Trump administration’s immigration policies has resulted in an open southern border and a catastrophic migration crisis. According to Customs and Border Protection figures released last month, Border Patrol agents have made more than a million arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border so far this year, surpassing any full-year total going back to at least 2005. And despite being handed three vaccines by his predecessor to massively aid him in accomplishing his promise to “defeat the virus,” it now appears America is regressing with regard to the COVID pandemic. Mask mandates are being imposed again across the country, and what was supposed to be a historic economic recovery is in jeopardy.

If Biden continues to pursue the radical left’s unpopular agenda and history repeats itself with devastating midterm losses for his party in Congress, don’t be surprised if the President takes an exit ramp ahead of 2024. After all, most Americans already expect it.

I don’t think Biden will be able to convince his DemocRat string operators that he can be accepted as capable by even a majority of DemocRats.

The President was use as a tool by the far left. Bernie and his ilk captured the presidency without a fight as Biden sold his soul. What appears to us as mismanagement and poor leadership, is really a checklist for a Marxist takeover. Immigration and energy have been transformed from stability to total chaos. The Marxists tighten their grip on the media, higher education, popular culture, and Congress. The disease has now spread to our local school boards, and now threatens the military. In six short months, the country has been transformed. Biden will not be useful or necessary after 2024. The battle is already nearly finished. Not a shot was fired.

Bruce,
Even YOU have to know how bad things are in this country. You may have disliked Trump for his ‘“mean” tweets, but just know your vote for Biden has ruined the future of your children and grandchildren for MANY years to come. You have effectively ruined their lives by voting for a man who obviously has impaired cognition, so now they have to compete for jobs with the millions of illegals let into this country and the continued spread of Covid. Good luck with wearing a mask for the rest of your life, I choose to use common sense and vote for the man who want to give Americans a choice and wants ALL things good for Americans. NOT like your man Biden. He will go down as THE WORST PRESIDENT in history, 2nd to OBAMA. They don’t care about you and they never will. You were just a pawn for the party when you voted democrat. And it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out!

As bad as Biden is, and as unlikely as it is that he will be mentally and physically fit to finish his first term, it will be much worse if (or when) Harris takes over. Americans need to take the possibility of a Harris administration seriously and vote to remove all liberal/socialist/ America hating democrats out of office in the midterm elections. The only way to derail the progressive socialist agenda is to return control of the house and Senate to Republicans.If the midterms do not result in that happening, then Americans need to make preparations to to be able to survive America’s greatest political crises. SOMETHING TO SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT !!!!

Biden will take the exit ramp after the midterms when Republicans take over Congress decisively. He will not want to face all the congressional investigations of his family’s corruption. Not only is he the most inept president in history but also the most corrupt.

For the corrupt, creepy, communist democrats it’s now or never. Slow Joe’s final act will be to pardon Hunter and himself. It’s difficult to imagine, but V.P. Kama-La-La would be terrible too, but possibly less corrupt due to less criminal experience.

77 years old, well-educated, experienced. Let’s see…your generation clamored and protested outside the halls of power and corporate towers for an easier life of being able to afford college, a house, and a family on what’s considered today an entry to mid-level job – because you all “deserved” life to be that easy. Because of you baby booming hippies and your entitlement, selfishness, and hypocrisy of “you should live as minimalists, but we deserve excess,” you have screwed at least the three generations that came after yours if not more to come. And now, after whining outside the halls of power and the corporate towers, you are all inside of them flushing the country down the toilet faster than any generation of governing-class in American history. I call myself gen-Y because I refuse to identify with millennials, as they are the fully bloomed spawn of your generation in terms of economic, social, and culturally twisted perspectives, norms and values. At least some of it skipped over gen-X (my parents) and I was raised by my silent generation grandparents (due to unfortunate accidents) who I only blame for not doing more to stop your generation’s dictates when they had the chance. The only good your ilk gave us was better music, expanded access to mind altering substances, and the freedom to sleep with whom we consent to – and those last two were definitely not without their own negative consequences if you take a look around you. But you’re 77, educated, and experienced, so why would you bother to. Hope you’re proud of yourself boomer. Here’s to your education and experience with no wisdom or principle whatsoever.

I strongly suspect Biden won’t even last as a one term president. Many is the time when he’s not remotely lucid, he has sexual harassment and worse allegations hanging around his neck like an albatross, he continually supports positions that are not even remotely “for the good of the overall country”, and at 78 years of age he could even die in office.

Eh???? Anyone who was paying attention to the news during Trumps term in office knows that from day ONE the DemocRats and overwhelming news sources were on Trump like a cat on a June Bug! That was their best shot at hamstringing his Presidency and executive effectiveness. And the news media loved it for the news (phony and almost entirely inaccurate). Citizens should realize that the Commie LIB DemocRats have a dominating majority control over the new media … and have had since the Clinton Administration, if not longer.
