A new poll by Fox News shows that President Biden faces a tough battle for re-election in 2024. The poll, which was conducted in six key battleground states, shows that Biden is chasing the 'former president Trump with an average of 4 points.
The poll also shows Biden's support is waning among black, Latino and young voters, who have long been key constituencies in the Democratic Party's base.
“The lack of enthusiasm and the decline in support is certainly real,” noted Chris Anderson, a veteran pollster and Democratic strategist. “In terms of where those people will be next November, I would expect many, if not the vast majority, to go back to the Democratic base if it's a Biden-Trump matchup,” Anderson said. “I think as soon as Trump's name is up against Biden's, it's different than if you were evaluating Biden on your own.”
Another potential electoral danger for the president is the possibility of independent or third-party candidates such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Green Party candidate Jill Stein, progressive academic Cornell West and a possible bipartisan ticket backed by the organization centrist No Labels. , which could take votes away from Biden.
