Sixty-six percent of independents disapprove of President Joe Biden’s job performance, a CNN poll found this week, highlighting his lack of momentum heading into the 2024 election.
Independents often are determining factors in presidential elections. CNN found negative polling for Biden among the critical demographic:
- 66 percent disapprove of his job performance
- 34 percent approve of his job performance
- 70 percent say he does not deserve reelection
- 30 percent say he does deserve reelection
Former President Donald Trump leads Biden nationally by four points above the 3.8 margin of error, the poll found:
- Trump: 49 percent
- Biden: 45 percent
The polling numbers remained identical to CNN polling in December. Trump maintains a strong percentage of young and black voters.

Republicans also feel confident Trump will defeat Biden in November. “[T]he demographic dynamics of the contest appear to be steady – with a wide education gap among the most notable demographic divides, and smaller differences by age or race than in other recent presidential elections,” CNN reported:
The poll sampled 1,212 adults from January 25-30 and has a 3.8-point margin of error.
