A new poll from YouGov and Yahoo News has found that roughly 1/3rd of Biden voters do not want him to seek re-election.
These startling numbers are just the most recent hit to Joe Biden’s approval ratings which continue to sink as The White House continues to falter on everything from sensible Covid-19 policy to inflation.
Indeed, his latest unceremonious address to the unvaccinated left many feeling a complete lack of confidence in a ‘leader’ of the free world.
As his approval ratings continue to tank, and many Biden voters feel the buyers remorse, could this pave the way for a red wave in 2022?

Many Democratic Reps have signaled that they do not want Biden running for reelection due to fear that it will damage the party’s chances for remaining in control during and after 2022.
The problem with this is that Kamala Harris has even worse approval ratings, so it remains to be seen who will represent Democrats in a 2024 Presidential election, or who would succeed Biden if he steps aside before 2024.
If these latest polling numbers are indicative of anything then Democrats are going to have a tough time ahead of them in 2022 and beyond.
Here’s more on the story:
Fewer than 3 in 10 adults under the age of 30 approve of Biden's job performance as president, and a majority disapproves.

Conservative Brief gave us some insight into the data:
Just one month ago, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents were about evenly divided over whether they preferred Biden (38 percent) or someone else (41 percent) as the party’s 2024 nominee. Now fewer say Biden (32 percent), and more say they’re not sure (27 percent, up from 21 percent previously).
Here is my piece on our YouGov/Economist data showing a huge dropoff in support for Biden among young people. The decrease really is quite stunning: -50 points on net approval since January 26th (our first survey of his presidency).https://t.co/x5Ss0aB7sv

66.8% is high turnout for general elections.
Reagan got 53% to vote.
Using YOUR fake registered voters, of 210 million, DO THE 3rd grade math.
66.8% of 210 m registered voters is 140 m -74 million Trump votes =

Washington Examiner reports that Biden is struggling with voters under 30:
Younger people are typically hyped as a powerful emerging voting bloc before disappointing political pundits by not casting ballots. But last year, half of the country’s population under 30 participated in the election, an 11 percentage point spike from 39% in 2016, according to Tuft University’s Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement.
