CNN Host John King was audibly concerned when a CNN analyst released the latest numbers in a Joe Biden poll.
According to CNN, their poll was taken in March and found that only a third of Americans want Biden to run in 2024 for president.
The poll also finds negative views of Biden persist across several personal attributes, with majorities saying he does not have the stamina and sharpness to serve effectively as president (67%), does not inspire confidence (65%), is not honest and trustworthy (54%) and does not care about people like them (54%). Americans are more evenly split over whether Biden can work effectively with Congress – 48% say he can, 51% that he cannot.
All told, just 32% say that Biden deserves reelection to the presidency, down 5 points since December and about on par with the 33% who said the same about Trump in November 2017. The largest shifts come among younger adults, with just 26% of those younger than 35 saying Biden deserves another term in the new poll, down from 36% in December, and among liberals, shifting from 63% saying he deserved reelection in December to 53% now.
Below is CNN host John King trying to make sense of it all.

The news on the poll comes as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis picks up a huge endorsement. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has announced that he will endorse DeSantis for President.
The two were good friends when DeSantis was a Congressman, and both fought together to try and stop the Mueller report in 2017.
Meanwhile, former President Trump is headed to a big Republican donor meeting in Nashville, and guess who else will be there? Former Vice President Mike Pence.

President Trump also has a commanding lead in the polls and got a huge bump after all the nonsense in New York.
