In further proof that it’s growing more likely that the Democrat Party is incapable of saving Joe Biden from himself, the latest Gallup survey found that more than six in 10 voters want the embattled president gone.
That’s even worse than Biden’s present — as I write — approval rating of 41 percent.

Unsurprisingly, 82 percent of registered Democrat voters believe Biden should be reelected, while just 3 percent of Republican voters think Biden deserves a second term. And in a sign that third-party candidates on the November ballot would hurt Biden more than Trump, just 29 percent of independent voters believe the president deserves another shot.
In January of prior incumbent reelection years, Gallup asked whether former Presidents Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush deserved reelection. The same question was asked about George W. Bush (October 2003) and Barack Obama (December 2011) late in the years before they sought reelection.
Of these, the younger Bush (who won reelection) had the highest reelect figure, at 53%, while two incumbents who lost, Trump at 50% and the elder Bush at 49%, scored just below. Although Biden’s current rating ranks lowest among the readings for the past six presidents, his 38% is most similar to Clinton’s 44% and Obama’s 43%, both of whom won a second term.
Gallup noted that only George H.W. Bush’s rating in July 1992 — 32 years ago — was lower than where Biden presently sits. And as I suggested at the top, I don’t think there’s a damn way the Democrats can save this guy from himself. As I see it, the 2024 presidential election is Donald Trump’s to win or lose.
Here’s the thing. While virtually everything Biden touches turns to crap, from the border crisis to foreign conflicts to inflation to race relations to his war on oil and even gas home appliances, it a quite another thing that he never takes responsibility for anything he screws up — most of not all it intentionally so.
As I reported earlier Friday, Biden is now blaming out-of-control grocery prices on grocery stores “ripping people off” — and even worse, calling shoppers “suckers.” Oh, and also lying, of course. Here’s Joe:
Inflation is coming down. It’s now lower in America than any other major economy in the world. The cost of eggs, milk, chicken, gas, and so many other essential items have come down. But for all we’ve done to bring prices down, there are still too many corporations in America ripping people off: price gouging, junk fees, greedflation, shrinkflation.
Maybe Biden was targeting low-information rank-and-file Democrat voters with the above nonsense, but if he thinks voters with even a modicum of intelligence buy it, he’s even more delusional than we think. Then again, he was simply reading a speech written by handlers, so there’s that.
The Bottom Line
Not only is Joe Biden’s presidency an out-of-control dumpster fire; but his chances of re-election are increasing in flames, as well. Toss in his visibly deteriorating mental capacity and as I said, earlier, the November election looks to be Donald Trump’s to win or lose — this far out, that is.
