Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren refused to answer directly on Tuesday when asked if she thought Joe Biden was “up for the job.”

During an interview on CBS, the panel spoke about Biden’s sinking approval numbers and how it may impact him presumably running for re-election in 2024.

Below is a transcript of the exchange, via Grabien:

BURLESON: “Okay, let me ask you about 2024. Do you believe that President Biden is up for the job?”

WARREN: “President Biden is running for reelection. I expect to support him.”

KING: “His approval ratings are some of the lowest that they’ve been for a very long time.”

WARREN: “I — I understand that, but remember, we’ve just finished the first quarter or just starting into the second quarter here. So, we’ve got a lot of time, a lot of work in front of us.”

DOKOUPIL: “But you only have probably less than a year before you lose both the Senate and the House. All the polls — “

WARREN: “Ah! Bite your tongue!”

DOKOUPIL: “The polls are very, very, very bad, right?”

WARREN: “Bite your tongue!”

DOKOUPIL: “I mean, Gallup had a poll recently that showed a preference nationally for Republicans at a 5-point margin over Democrats.”

WARREN: “I know.”

DOKOUPIL: “You started the year with the insurrection and a 9-point advantage. In the fourth quarter, it was a 5-point advantage to Republicans. So something’s not right here.”

WATCH:

Every week a new poll shows more Americans have jumped off the Biden bandwagon, and it’s only gotten worse over the year.

According to a new Quinnipiac poll, just 33% of respondents thought Biden was doing a good job, compared to 53% who did not.

Where Biden took a significant hit was with Independents, of whom a mere 25% showed their support. While the decrease alone is bad enough, the real problem for the president – and his party – is the fact this follows a long line of plummeting poll numbers over his first year in office.

The poll showed 43% of participants favor Republicans retaking the House in November while 42% prefer the Democrats. When it comes to the Senate, 45% support the GOP while 41% back Democrats.

Another question asked respondents if they believe Biden “is doing a better job as president than you expected, a worse job, or about what you expected?”

A paltry 7% indicated the president is exceeding expectations, while 39% said he was doing worse than anticipated. About 50% said Biden is performing as they had predicted.

The president did a little better when respondents were asked whether he had failed to unite the country as he promised on the 2020 campaign trail. About 42% of respondents believe he is uniting the country, but 49% felt he was doing more to divide. This includes 50% of Independents.

Quinnipiac found that 15% believe divisions will “ease” while 28% indicated they would stay the same. A solid 53% predicted the country would become even more divided.

Earlier this month, Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that Biden will be impeached if Republicans win back control of Congress in 2022.

The Texas Republican made his prediction during his most recent “Verdict with Ted Cruz” episode, adding that he is “very optimistic about 2022,” going on to say, “I put the odds of the Republicans winning the House at 90/10 and it may even be higher than that.”

He also said that Biden’s impeachment could feasibly take place next year if the Republicans take the lower chamber, noting that “if we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration.”
