As the 2024 race begins to finally fill up, (albeit with long shot candidates hoping to get in their fundraising before the big dogs arrive), many are beginning to openly wonder about the viability of Joe Biden’s potential reelection bid.
The octogenarian is not only beginning to slip mentally, (and physically), but the Democratic Party itself is sliding in away from him politically as well.
This week, a rather shocking new poll suggests that an extremely large number of his previous voters don’t think he should run again.
More than one-third of Biden 2020 voters do not want him to run for reelection in 2024, a recent survey from YouGov/The Economist revealed.
The survey found 58 percent, overall, revealing they do not want President Joe Biden to run for office again in 2024, while 24 percent said they do. Another 18 percent remain unsure.
Some things never change, however…
Predictably, opinions are divided along party lines, as 83 percent of Republicans and 59 percent of independents do not want him to run. Less than a majority of Democrats, 43 percent, believe Biden should run in 2024, while more than one-third, 34 percent, said he should not. Another 23 percent of Democrats remain unsure.
Here is where it gets really ugly.
Notably, over one-third of Biden 2020 voters, 36 percent, do not want him to run in the next presidential race, while less than a majority, 39 percent, said he should. One-quarter of Biden 2020 voters remain unsure. For further comparison, most Trump 2020 voters, 55 percent, want former President Donald Trump to run in 2024, and 53 percent of Republicans across the board say the same.
Biden’s team has indicated anonymously that the President is planning to announce his reelection campaign sometime in the next several weeks, possibly as early as mid-April.
