A poll conducted by CNN and SSRS has determined that in a hypothetical matchup between President Joe Biden and several Republican candidates, he’s not doing too hot.

The survey of 1,503 respondents asked voters who they would choose between Mr Biden and Florida governor Ron DeSantis and the two tied 47 per cent equally.

Meanwhile, when pinned against former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, Mr Biden lost with just 45 per cent of the vote.

The survey findings point to a larger point – Democrat voters are desperate for another candidate.

Approximately 82 per cent of Democrat or Democrat-leaning voters said they want to see the Democratic Party nominate “someone besides Joe Biden” for office.

Mr Biden’s approval rating has recently dropped along with voters’ confidence in his ability to run for re-election

The findings come shortly after a Wall Street Journal poll found that more than half of US voters believe Mr Biden is “too told” to seek a second term despite being only three years older than Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.


VOICES: From cringeworthy to baffling: 2024 candidates revealed their favorite songs

“Who wants to talk about policy when you can talk about music?

Several of the 2024 presidential candidates replied to a Politico query to list their top 20 tracks. The point of the exercise was, ostensibly, to see what music makes the hearts of our prospective presidents sing, but, let’s be honest, the responses were certainly pored over and curated by the candidates’ staffers.”

VOICES: Even Senate Republicans don’t want to impeach Joe Biden. They may not have a choice

“It would be a mistake to call Republican senators more moderate than their House counterparts, but they do have to be more methodical. Indeed, the Senate killed both of Mr Trump’s impeachments. While the story that George Washington compared the upper chamber to a saucer is likely a bunch of malarkey, it does see itself as more responsible and a means to temper the passions of the often squirrelly House.”

ICYMI: Pence and DeSantis get surprising poll boost after first GOP debate

Support for former president Donald Trump among Republican primary voters dipped slightly after the ex-president skipped out on the first debate among GOP presidential hopefuls last week, according to a new poll from Emerson College.

The survey, which was conducted from 25 to 26 August, found just 50 per cent of GOP primary voters expressing an intention to vote for Mr Trump. That’s a six-point drop from a similar Emerson survey conducted before last week’s Milwaukee, Wisconsin debate.

But multiple candidates who participated in the face-off saw gains in the same survey compared with the drop in support for Mr Trump.
