US Vice-President Ms Harris and President Biden have been described as “not a winning ticket” for the Democrat Party. Fox News contributor Joe Concha has discussed the latest polling numbers amid speculation that various Democrat party donors are in favour of Pete Buttigieg, US Secretary of Transportation.

Mr Concha told Fox News: “Behind the scenes, donors really, really want Pete Buttigieg.

“Forget Vice President they want him to be the nominee in 2024 at the top of the ticket.

“Because you look at the President’s poll numbers, barely more than one-third of the country approves of this President’s performance.

“Twenty eight percent approve of Kamala Harris – that is not a winning ticket.”

Former US President Donald Trump also polled ahead of Joe Biden in a recent hypothetical 2024 election opinion survey.

President Biden is facing a popularity squeeze over the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and rising inflation at home.

Current polling suggests the Democrat would face a fierce battle to secure a second term in the White House.

Trump has not officially declared his candidacy for the 2024 election, though polling suggests the former US leader maintains strong levels of support.

Sky News Australia presenter Maddie Hale said on Friday: “Looking ahead into the future the 2024 election, the Biden administration has seen another drop in confidence for a second term.

“RNW conducted a hypothetical election where Donald Trump and Joe Biden face off for the White House.

“It found Donald Trump was up in the polls 44 percent and Joe Biden was sitting on 39 percent.

“Voters were asked if 2024 saw Kamala Harris running for the top job and she faced off against Donald Trump, who would they vote for.

“Forty five percent said they would vote for Donald Trump and 36 percent said they’d vote for Kamala Harris.”

She added: “Well, Joe Biden continuously finds himself seeing dwindling approval numbers and a decline in a vote of confidence.

“A new poll carried out by Redfield and Wilson strategies surveyed 1500 registered voters in the US on November 15 on Joe Biden’s overall job performance, 46 percent of Americans disapprove and 37 percent approve.

“That’s five points lower than the previous poll conducted at the end of October when 44 percent, disapproved and 40 percent approved.”
