Resign Now: 52% Want Biden Out, But Fear Worse Under Harris

People have seen enough of President Joe Biden and his administration’s bumbling over the Afghan withdrawal and now want him to resign.

In the latest shocking display of the president’s polling free fall, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey found that a majority, 52%, wants Biden to resign over the withdrawal alone. Just 39% disagrees, far short of his political base.

But, as other polls have shown, likely voters surveyed do not want Vice President Kamala Harris to step in, viewing her as unqualified.

The data, shared in advance with Secrets, twins with the president’s weekly job approval rating, which also shows that the nation, for now, has given up on the aging president who sometimes appears fumbling.

Biden’s approval rating is also plummeting and sits about where former President Donald Trump’s approval-disapproval rating had sunk to at this stage in his presidency.

The president’s scrambling to defend the withdrawal and turn the public’s attention to other issues has flopped, according to the survey.

Rasmussen revealed 60% of voters agree with a statement last week by South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham: “I think Joe Biden deserves to be impeached because he’s abandoned thousands of Afghans who fought with us and he’s going to abandon some American citizens because he capitulated to the Taliban to a 31 August deadline.”

While some have talked about the I-word, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has introduced a package to impeach Biden. She reiterated her call after the withdrawal went south, saying, “It’s time for Congress to hold this administration accountable. Joe Biden must be impeached. Immediately.”

Lucky for Biden, his lifeline appears to be his vice president and her even worse standing with the public.

Rasmussen found — again, as other polls have — that most do not think the former California senator is up to the job.

Only 38% said she is “qualified” to be president, while a sizable 58% said she isn’t. And 47% said she is “not at all qualified,” the lowest rating in the poll.
