As it’s been widely reported, Joe Biden is crumbling in the polls.
A reporter confronted Biden during a press conference on Sunday over a new CBS News poll that showed the majority of Americans no longer believe that he is competent in the job.
The reporter said, “A new poll out today shows Americans wanted to withdraw from Afghanistan, but they disapprove of the way you’ve handled it.”
“The poll also found that based in part on what’s transpired in the last week, a majority of Americans, and forgive me, I’m just the messenger, no longer consider you to be competent, focused, or effective in the job,” the reporter continued.
“I haven’t seen that poll,” Biden immediately said.
“It’s out there,” the reporter responded.
Biden responded by shaking his head in disagreement and laughing.

Despite Biden’s attempt to laugh it off, the fact is that a majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, according to a new poll.
A survey found that 69 percent of polled Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S.’s military presence in Afghanistan.
Only 23 percent approve of Biden’s handling. The survey was conducted by The Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action.
In another poll, a majority of likely voters do not think President Joe Biden will even finish his term.
A majority of Americans also say Vice President Kamala Harris is unfit to replace him.
Rasmussen Reports explained, “Most voters believe it’s likely that President Joe Biden won’t finish out his term of office, and don’t think Vice President Kamala Harris is ready to step up to replace him.”
Only 43 percent of those surveyed said they thought Harris is qualified to become the country’s 47th president. Only 29 percent said Harris is very qualified.
A majority of 55 percent of respondents in the Rasmussen poll said Harris is not qualified to be president. 47 percent of them said she is not at all qualified.
More from Daily Wire:
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), the former White House physician under both Presidents Obama and Trump, called on Biden to resign during a Fox News interview last week, saying that Biden is no longer “cognitively prepared” to be President of the United States.
“We’re looking horrible right now on the world stage; this is an absolute national embarrassment,” Jackson said. “And instead of being out in front of this and talking about what’s going on, and what went wrong, and what the plan was, and what we’re gonna do next, Biden’s just been in hiding again, as he always has.”
“Biden, once again, has failed us. He’s embarrassed us internationally,” Jackson continued. “And, you know, honestly, it is time for him to leave. I’ve been saying this for a long time. I’ve been saying that he’s not cognitively prepared to be our president. And this is just another example of his failure.”
“And I think a lot of this is relevant to his cognitive ability. But he’s created a national security disaster for this country right now. And it’s time for him to move on, and somebody else needs to do this job. He is not fit to be our commander in chief. It’s time for him to resign.”
Jackson said that Biden has avoided scrutiny over the matter because “people have cut him slack because they know he’s got these cognitive issues, and he’s older.”
“I think that he’ll resign or [I] think his own party will remove through the 25th Amendment as the days advance, because there’s just too much liability with this man,” he continued. “They can’t cover for him anymore.”
“So as we sit here today, you think the 25th Amendment will be invoked by the Democrats in congress against Joe Biden?” a Fox News host asked Jackson.
“I absolutely think that’s what’s gonna happen,” Jackson answered. “I’ve been talking about this for about a year and a half. I’ve been saying even when he was candidate Biden, that he wasn’t cognitively fit to be our president.”
