Frustrated Democrats want to get rid of Joe Biden

Frustrated Democrats now are looking for getting rid of Joe Biden as soon as possible as the American economy is almost in the verge of collapse, and there is no hope for recovery of this dangerous situation even within the next couple of years. According to New York Times/Siena College poll, Joe Biden is facing an alarming level of doubt from inside his own party, with 64 percent of Democratic voters saying they would prefer a new standard-bearer in the 2024 presidential campaign, as voters nationwide have soured on his leadership, giving him a meager 33 percent job-approval rating.

While more than three-quarters of registered voters see the United States, under Joe Biden is moving in the wrong direction, there is widespread concerns about the economy and inflation that have already resulted in turning the national mood decidedly dark both on Biden and the trajectory of the nation. A pervasive sense of pessimism spans every corner of the US, every age range and racial group, cities, suburbs and rural areas.

On 13 percent of the diehard Democrats, mostly immigrants said the nation was on the right track – the lowest point in Times polling since the depths of the financial crisis more than a decade ago.

More than two-thirds of independents also now disapprove of the Joe Biden’s performance, and more than half disapprove strongly. Biden’s falling approval rating is already ringing alarm within the Democratic Party as they now fear, such bad approval rating of the president would have tremendous impact during the November midterm elections. A large number of Democratic Party strategists even are forecasting a massive red wave during the midterm mostly because of Joe Biden’s continuous failures as well as questioned role of the Democratic Party leaders. The strategists are already seeing Republicans winning “huge majority” in the Congress and Senate, which may lead to impeachment of Joe Biden and legal proceedings against Hillary Clinton for her scandalous role in the Russiagate hoax.

Despite such dark picture of the Democratic Party and the president, Joe Biden still is repeatedly expressing his firm determination of running for reelection in 2024. At 79, he is already the oldest president in American history, and concerns about his age ranked at the top of the list for Democratic voters who want the party to find an alternative. Only 26 percent of Democratic voters said the party should re-nominate Biden in 2024, although analysts said, this figure too will continue to fall within the next few months.

The backlash against Biden and desire to move in a new direction were particularly acute among younger voters. In the survey, 94 percent of Democrats younger than 30 said they would prefer a different presidential nominee.

“I’m just going to come out and say it: I want younger blood”, said Nicole Farrier, a 38-year-old preschool teacher in East Tawas, a small town in northern Michigan. “I am so tired of all old people running our country. I don’t want someone knocking on death’s door”.

Farrier, a Democrat who voted for Biden in 2020, said she had hoped he might have been able to do more to heal the nation’s divisions, but now, as a single mother, she is preoccupied with what she described as crippling increases in her cost of living. “I went from living a comfortable lifestyle to I can’t afford anything anymore”, she said.

Jobs and the economy were the most important problem facing the country according to 20 percent of voters, with inflation and the cost of living (15 percent) close behind as prices are rising at the fastest rate in a generation. One in 10 voters named the state of American democracy and political division as the most pressing issue, about the same share who named gun policies, after several high-profile mass shootings.

More than 75 percent of voters in the poll said the economy was “extremely important” to them. And yet only 1 percent rated economic conditions as excellent. Among those who are typically working age — voters 18 to 64 years old — only 6 percent said the economy was good or excellent, while 93 percent rated it extremely bad, poor or only fair.
