The majority of likely voters in the United States do not want President Joe Biden to run for reelection in 2024, a poll found on the eve of his State of the Union address.
The Rasmussen Reports survey poll released Friday found that 56 percent of respondents do not want Biden to run for reelection, as he is past the halfway point of his presidency, and his State of the Union is set for this Tuesday. Only 32 percent of respondents say that he will run again for the presidency, and 12 percent remain unsure.
Looking at Biden’s party by party, 53 per cent of Democrats believed he should run in the 2024 election, while 17 percent said so, and only 26 percent said it. In comparison, 76 percent of Republican respondents said he should not run for reelection, while 25 percent of Democrat and 51 percent of independent respondents said the same.
This also comes as Biden — who would be 86 years old at the end of a second term — has still not officially announced whether he will run for a second term in 2024. However, he recently teased reporters about running while on vacation in the Virgin Islands with family members. He is believed to be preparing for a 2024 team.
The poll also found that only 39 percent of the respondents want Vice President Kamala Harris to remain as Biden’s running mate in 2024 if he runs for a second term. Comparatively, 48% of respondents did not wish to have Harris running mate and 13% were unconvinced.
The Rasmussen Reports poll was taken from January 31 to February 2 with 900 respondents. There was a 3 percent margin for error, and 95 percent confidence.
A second poll was reported by the Washington Post and ABC News found that former President Donald Trump, a Republican, has the lead over the current president. The poll found that of the 1,003 American surveyed from January 27 to February 1, and a 3.5 percent margin of error, 48 percent would choose Trump in a hypothetical 2024 match-up, while only 45 percent said Biden.
A mere 1% said that they’d vote for another candidate. Three percent said the same for both candidates. Two percent did not want to vote and two percent were against it. One percent expressed no opinions.
