President Joe Biden continues to face negative poll after negative poll in his re-election campaign, with a new survey showing him trailing three GOP rivals by as much as 10 points.
Biden, the oldest president in American history, turns 81 on Monday and already saw a poll today showing a majority of Democrats nationally want to see another Democrat enter the race to challenge him.
A poll from Marquette Law School shows the president trailing his predecessor, Donald Trump, by a 52 to 48 margin. However, Trump’s not the only one getting the best of Biden.
Former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley leads Biden by a whopping 10 points, 55 to 45.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who many saw as Trump’s toughest challenger in the Republican Primary, leads him by a 51 to 49 advantage.

The poll can be seen as a big victory for Haley, as among likely voters, Haley leads Biden by an even larger margin of 56 to 44, whereas.
DeSantis’ lead stays the same among likely voters, while Trump’s shrinks by one point to 51-49.
The problem for both Haley and DeSantis remains a massive margin between themselves and Trump in the GOP primary.
The same poll surveyed registered Republican voters, 54 percent of whom still favor Trump.
DeSantis and Haley were tied for second at 12 percent. None of the other remaining candidates – including Vivek Ramaswamy and Chris Christie – topped four percent.
It’s just another in a series of devastating polls for the president.
A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that 54 percent of Democrats and independents who leaned Democratic answered yes when asked if they’d like to see another challenger enter the race.
Twenty-eight percent said no, while 18 percent weren’t sure.

Younger Americans were more keen to have Biden face a fresh primary challenger than older adults, the poll found, suggesting the president’s age continues to be a liability.
The poll found that 69 percent of 18 to 29 year olds indicated they’d like to see another Democrat jump in and challenge Biden, while just 43 percent of Americans older than 65 agreed.
Among 30 to 44 year olds, 61 percent said they’d like Biden to gain another challenger, while 49 percent of 45 to 64 year olds held this view.
When the same group of Democrats and indendents who leaned Democratic was asked if they’d like to see Biden or someone else as the 2024 nominee, Biden came out ahead – with 46 percent saying Biden and 39 percent saying someone else.
On this question, independents were more likely to say they’d like a different option – 50 percent indicating so, versus 36 percent of Democrats.
Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents overwhelmingly backed Biden when asked to choose between him and his current two challengers – Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, who jumped in the race last month, and self-help guru Marianne Williamson.
In that three-way race, Biden received the support of 64 percent of respondents, while Phillips and Williamson received 4 percent each.
And Democrats, overall, were more forgiving when asked questions about Biden’s fitness for office and his age.
The poll also found that Democrats were more forgiving when questions were asked about the nearly 81-year-old president’s age and fitness, but some still had concerns
When survey respondents, including Republicans, were asked if Biden was fit to serve a second term, 60 percent responded no, while just 24 percent said yes.
His numbers were drastically dragged down by Republican sentiment.
Just 3 percent of Republicans said he was fit to serve a second term, while 95 percent said he wasn’t.
A slim majority of Democrats, 54 percent, said he was fit enough to serve four more years, while 25 percent disagreed.
Overall, 55 percent of Americans said that Biden’s advanced age – he’ll be 82 on inauguration day 2025 – was a ‘big problem’ for them, while another 26 percent said it was a small problem.
Among Democrats and Democratic-leaners, just 27 percent considered it a big problem, while another 44 percent rated Biden’s age a small problem.
Republicans were far more harsh, with 86 percent saying Biden’s age was a big problem and 9 percent saying it was a small problem.
Former President Donald Trump, Biden’s likely challenger, received slightly better marks when Americans were asked if he was fit to serve another four years.
Thirty-eight percent said yes – compared to 24 percent for Biden – while 49 percent said no.
When Americans were asked which candidate had a bigger problem – Trump’s legal drama to Biden’s age – the results were a statistical tie – with 41 percent answering Biden’s age and 42 percent saying Trump’s 91 criminal charges.
For the poll, 1,584 U.S. adults were surveyed between November 9 and 13 and it had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent.
