Seventy percent of Americans believe former President Joe Biden lacks the stamina and sharpness to serve effectively as president of the United States, a CNN poll found Thursday.
Sixty-two percent say Biden does not inspire confidence, and 54 percent believe he is not trustworthy and honest. Fifty-four percent also suggest Biden does not care about people like them.
The poll also found that few Americans (32 percent) think Biden deserves reelection. Fifty-four percent of Democrats say they would like someone other than Biden as the 2024 nominee. Only 44 percent say he should be the nominee.
A majority (51 percent) said Biden cannot work effectively with Congress. Forty-eight percent believe he can.
“The numbers are beyond sobering for President Biden,” CNN anchor John King said about the poll. “Consider these numbers an early campaign baseline.”
