Only a third of American say Biden deserves re-election as president: poll

According to a new poll, only about one-third of Americans believe that President Joe Biden deserves to be re-elected in 2024. The survey, which was conducted by CBS News and released on Wednesday, found that 36% of those polled believed that Biden deserved re-election, while 45% said that he did not deserve a second term.

The poll also showed that Biden's approval rating has fallen to 52%, down from 61% in February, which is the lowest it has been since he took office in January. Additionally, 53% of those polled disapproved of the way Biden has handled the COVID-19 pandemic, while 47% approved.

The poll comes as Biden faces mounting criticism over his handling of several issues, including the situation at the US-Mexico border, rising gas prices, and inflation. The president has also been under fire for his handling of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

Biden has defended his record, pointing to the successes of his administration, including the passage of a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill and the distribution of vaccines to millions of Americans. He has also pledged to address the issues facing the country and work to improve the lives of Americans.

The poll also found that Vice President Kamala Harris's approval rating has fallen to 45%, down from 49% in February. Meanwhile, 47% of those polled said that they did not approve of the way Harris is handling her job as vice president.

The survey was conducted from April 2-5 among 2,520 adults in the US and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.3 percentage points.

In other news, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced new guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals. According to the CDC, people who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely travel within the US without getting tested for the virus or having to quarantine upon arrival.

The CDC also stated that vaccinated individuals can gather indoors with other vaccinated people without wearing masks or practicing social distancing. However, the agency advises that vaccinated people should still wear masks and practice social distancing in public settings and when around unvaccinated individuals.

The new guidelines come as more Americans become vaccinated against COVID-19, with over 107 million people having received at least one dose of the vaccine as of April 6. The US continues to lead the world in the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths, with over 30 million cases and 555,000 deaths reported as of April 6.

Finally, the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged with the murder of George Floyd, continues in Minneapolis. On Wednesday, the court heard testimony from several witnesses, including a retired police sergeant who testified that Chauvin used excessive force in restraining Floyd.

The trial has garnered national attention and sparked discussions about police brutality and systemic racism in the US. Chauvin's defense team has argued that Floyd's death was caused by drugs in his system and underlying health conditions, while prosecutors have argued that Chauvin's actions directly caused Floyd's death.

The trial is expected to last several more weeks
