Large swaths of independents have disapproved of President Joe Biden in several polls as he launches his 2024 re-election campaign.
Interactive Polls tweeted out four surveys show Mr Biden has a net negative 29 percent approval rating.
A survey from The Washington Post and ABC News showed that in a rematch against former president Donald Trump, 42 percent of independents said they would support Mr Trump compared to 34 percent who said they would support Mr Biden.
Additionally, 30 percent of independents approve of the job Mr. Biden is doing compared to 60 percent who disapprove. By comparison, Biden beat Mr Trump in the group by nine points in 2020, according to the Pew Research Center.
Biden also in other polls of independent voters. A The Economist/YouGov poll found that 33 percent of independent voters approve of Mr Biden. Meanwhile, a Civiqs poll found that 29 percent of independent voters approve of him compared to 58 percent who disapprove of Mr Biden.
An Investors Business Daily/TIPP found that 27 percent of independent voters approve of Mr. Biden’s job performance while 63 percent disapprove.
The figures come as Mr Biden announced his re-election campaign last month, aiming to make a difference between himself and Mr Trump as well as “MAGA Republicans” who want to restrict abortion and ban the books.
But Mr Biden faces several headwinds as he faces re-election. The Post/ABC poll found that 44 percent of people surveyed said they would vote for Mr Trump and only 38 percent said they would vote for Mr Biden. Similarly, 42 percent said they would vote for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis while 37 percent said they would support Mr. Biden.
