A new poll suggests that President Joe Biden faces a real danger of being removed from office in next year's election.
Commissioned by CNN and carried out by SSRS Opinion Panel from August 25 to August 31, the survey shows Biden behind former president Donald Trump by a single point.
Yet that isn't the poll's only bad news for Democrats, however, since as The Independent pointed out, it also showed the president as being either tied with or trailing nearly every other Republican hopeful.
The poll showed Biden doing the worst against former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, losing to her by a full six points.
The president was also bested by former Vice President Mike Pence, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Meanwhile, the survey had Biden tied with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The only candidate that the president had a lead over was businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.
Those aren't the only sobering findings for Biden, as the poll also found that few Americans think the president inspires confidence while most members of his own party would like to see someone else at the top of the ticket.

Seventy-three percent of respondents said they were "seriously concerned" about Biden's "current level of physical and mental competence."
What's more, another 76% were similarly concerned over Biden's "ability to serve another full term as president if re- elected."
Meanwhile, only one third of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters want to see Biden to be nominated again, down from 44% when the same question was asked between March 1 and March 31.
CNN senior data reporter Harry Enten noted that the poll's results differed substantially from similar polls carried out three years ago.
NEW CNN POLL:
"Donald Trump, 47%, Joe Biden, 46%...There was not a single poll conducted by CNN during the entire 2020 cycle in which Donald Trump got a higher share of the vote than Joe Biden did, so this is a vastly different picture from what we saw four years ago..." pic.twitter.com/9Y6g7vhlb9

"What I will note is that there was not a single poll conducted by CNN during the entire 2020 cycle in which Donald Trump got a higher share of the vote than Joe Biden did, so this is a vastly different picture from what we saw four years ago," Enten stressed.
