The latest CNN poll shows that President Biden has a significant challenge in his 2024 reelection bid. The network’s new poll, released on Thursday, paints a bleak picture of the current president and his administration.
It reveals that an overwhelming 66% of Americans perceive a Biden victory in the upcoming presidential election as either a “disaster” or a “setback” for the United States.
The impact of this news was not lost on CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who expressed his dismay upon learning the poll results, calling it “horrible news” for Biden. Tapper emphasized the gravity of the situation, acknowledging that “those are some bad numbers.”
Further analysis of the poll by CNN political director David Challian revealed that 41% of Americans specifically labeled a Biden win as a “disaster,” a slightly better figure compared to the 44% who held the same opinion about former President Trump.
An additional 26% of Americans regarded a Biden victory as a “setback,” while only 12% expressed the same sentiment about a potential Trump win.

Surprisingly, both candidates were tied at 27% among those who considered their respective victories as a “step forward,” but Trump held a ten-point advantage over Biden among those who saw it as a “triumph.”
