Biden’s Re-Election in Serious Jeopardy After New Report

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Since announcing last month that he would run for another term, President Joe Biden’s job approval ratings have been continuously declining, making his chances of winning reelection even less.

However, fresh worries about matters like the nation’s mounting debt and political arguments over extending the debt ceiling are starting to have an impact on his presidency as well.

According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Monday, the majority of Americans are worried about the debt ceiling, but opinions on the best course of action vary.

“The polls show neither Democratic President Joe Biden nor congressional Republicans hold a clear advantage in public opinion as they head into discussions on Tuesday to resolve a months-long standoff over the nation’s $31.4 trillion debt limit,” Reuters noted.

“The Treasury says it could run out of money to pay the country’s bills as soon as June 1 unless Congress increases the borrowing cap. Economists say the resulting default would roil global financial markets and plunge the U.S. into recession,” the piece explained.

76% of respondents to the poll, a sizable majority of Americans, think that the two sides must come to an agreement on the issue because a default would put further financial hardship on families, including their own. 84 percent of Democrats and 77 percent of Republicans who identified themselves as such agreed with the statement.

Only 29% of respondents said that they thought the situation was being exaggerated.

Opinions on a solution are mixed, according to Reuters:

Some 49% said Congress needs to quickly raise the debt ceiling without conditions to avert default, echoing Biden’s position. Some 68% of Democrats and 39% of Republicans took that view.

But 51% of Americans said the debt ceiling should not be raised without substantial spending cuts – the position held by Republicans who hold a majority in the House of Representatives. That view was held by 69% of Republicans and 42% of Democrats, the poll found.

Meanwhile, Biden was trailing potential GOP contender Donald Trump in the most recent surprising poll from ABC News and the Washington Post by seven percentage points.

“It’s not because Trump is popular – he isn’t. Rather, it’s because Democrats are failing to offer an alternative that appeals to the majority of voters, who crave change and are fed up with the extremes on both sides,” claims Joe Cunningham, a former SC Dem congressman who was ousted in 2020 by Rep. Nancy Mace (R). Mace went on to win the election again in 2022.

“Something must be done. Since Democrats are unable or unwilling to offer an alternative, I’m supporting an effort to secure a better choice for president in 2024 that represents the commonsense majorities in both parties. The effort, led by the organization No Labels, will secure a place on the presidential ballot in all 50 states for a unity ticket featuring a Democrat and a Republican as running mates,” according to Cunningham in an opinion piece that was issued on Tuesday.

Cunningham thinks that the majority of Americans are neither strongly leftist nor strongly rightist, but instead fall somewhere in the middle or just tilt left or right, which he thinks gives his party a chance.

“The national Democratic Party assumes foolishly that all moderates will automatically side with Biden over Trump, even though Democrats have done nothing to court these moderates. But those of us Democrats who have competed in red or purple states know the weakness of this strategy. We know that you underestimate Trump at your own peril. In truth, he typically runs ahead of the polling, meaning 7 points might be an understatement of his current lead over Biden,” according to Cunningham.

“It is possible to applaud President Biden’s work in public service and also say the sun is setting on his career. It’s time for fresh leadership – leadership based around unity, problem solving and common sense. National Democrats won’t offer it, so we’ll have to look elsewhere,” he said in conclusion.

President Trump spoke to Fox News exclusively about the bombshell revelation (which all knew) by Special Counsel John Durham that Hillary Clinton’s plan to ‘vilify’ Trump by linking him to Putin was briefed to Obama and Biden before the election in 2016.

“I, and much more importantly, then American public have been victims of this long-running and treasonous charade started by the Democrats — started by Comey,” Trump told Fox News Digital. “There must be a heavy price to pay for putting our country through this,” Fox reported.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, Trump said the activities surrounding the FBI’s original Trump-Russia investigation were “a total disgrace,” and said “public anger over this report is at a level that I have not seen before.”

“This report took a long time because John Durham is a very thorough investigator,” Trump said. “But the result is unequivocal and an absolute disaster in terms of justice.”

Trump added that “the national security implications of what they did are very grave.”

“It turned out to be a giant and very dangerous hoax,” he said, adding that he would have “further comment in the near future.”

Matt Gaetz spoke to Newsmax about the massive scandal.
