A new survey released late last week was another political blow against President Joe Biden.

According to the Morning Consult/Politico poll, nearly two-thirds, or 65 percent, of 2,018 registered voters surveyed between Nov. 18-20 said Biden should not run again, with a plurality of them, 46 percent, saying “definitely not.”

Meanwhile, a paltry 28 percent said they’d like to see him run again, with just 15 percent saying “definitely” and only 13 percent saying “probably,” Newsmax reported.

The outlet added:

Seventy-two percent of those surveyed said the country is headed in the wrong direction, and 55% said they disapprove the job Biden is doing.

Almost 60% disapprove of how Biden is handling the economy, which 43% of those surveyed believe is the top issue.

Former Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who lost a Senate race to Trump-backed GOP candidate J.D. Vance earlier this month, said that Biden ought to call it a career.

“The environment politically across the country is poisonous, and people I think want some change,” The Hill reported Ryan telling WFMJ-TV in Youngstown, Ohio, in September. “It’s important for us, in both parties, these leaders who have been around for a while, I think it’s time for some generational change.”

In July, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) also did not commit to supporting Biden or even his party.

“Do you hope Democrats keep control of the House and Senate?” host Chuck Todd asked on “Meet The Press.”

“I think people are sick and tired of politics, Chuck,” the senator said. “I really do. I think they’re sick and tired of Democrats and Republicans fighting and feuding and holding pieces of legislation hostage because they didn’t get what they wanted, or something or someone might get credit for something. Why don’t we start doing something for our country? Why don’t we just say, ‘This is good for America?’ I’ve always said the best politics is good government. Do something good, Chuck. But I’m not going to predict what’s going to happen.”

“I’m not asking you to predict,” Todd pressed. “What result do you want? Do you want the Democrats to keep control of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives?”

Manchin again avoided saying that he supported the Democrats.

“You know, I’m not making those choices or decisions on that,” the senator said. “I’m going to work with whatever I have. I’ve always said that. I think the Democrats have great candidates that are running. They’re good people I’ve worked with. And I have a tremendous amount of respect and friendship with my Republican colleagues. So I can work on either side very easily.”

Todd gave the line of questioning one more shot.

“You don’t care about the outcome this year of the election?” the host said.

“Whatever the voters choose,” the senator said. “I can’t decide what’s going to happen in Kansas or California or Texas. I really can’t. I’ve always taken the approach whoever you send me, that’s your representative and I respect them. And I respect the state for the people they send, and I give it my best to work with them, to do the best for my country. I don’t play the politics that way. I don’t like it that way. That’s not who I am.”

He would also not commit to supporting President Joe Biden in 2024 when he appeared on “This Week” on ABC on Sunday.

“If Biden is renominated by your party, will you support him?” host Jonathan Karl said.

“Everybody’s worried about the elections, that’s the problem,” the senator said.

“This is a simple question,” the host said.

“No,” the senator said. “I’m not getting involved in that.”

“You can’t even rule out voting for a Republican for president,” the host hit back.

“I’m not getting into the 2024 election,” Manchin responded, holding his ground. “That’s all.”

The same month, a poll showed that a whopping half of Democratic voters did not want Biden to campaign again, The Daily Caller reported.
