Joe Biden, who has been engulfed in scandal after scandal since taking office earlier this year is no longer a favorite of the Democrats anymore.
A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that only a small fraction of the Democrats want Biden to run again in 2024.
“Perhaps as a result, just 38 percent of 2020 Biden voters say they want him to run for reelection. A full 30 percent say he should step aside. Those numbers are a little more favorable among Democrats as a whole: 43 percent and 28 percent, respectively. But they’re still fairly soft,” Yahoo reported.
“Yet the desire for an alternative — especially among Democrats — resurfaces when voters are allowed a third choice: “Someone else.” Here, a full 21 percent of registered voters opt for this other unnamed candidate, with Biden shedding about twice as much support (13 percentage points) as Trump (6 percentage points),” the report continued.
The report added:
Just one month ago, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents were about evenly divided over whether they preferred Biden (38 percent) or someone else (41 percent) as the party’s 2024 nominee. Now fewer say Biden (32 percent), and more say they’re not sure (27 percent, up from 21 percent previously).
Biden’s backing then plummets again (to just 20 percent) when he’s matched against a hypothetical field of potential Democratic alternatives, with double-digit support for Kamala Harris (13 percent), Elizabeth Warren (11 percent), Bernie Sanders (10 percent) and Pete Buttigieg (10 percent).
Meanwhile, nearly a quarter (24 percent) say they’re not sure whom they prefer for the 2024 nomination.
Just 14 percent of independents want Biden to run again.
An explosive new poll reveals that most Americans do not believe Joe Biden will run for a second term in office.
According to a survey from Quinnipiac, 54 percent of Americans don’t think Biden will seek re-election in 2024.
The poll found:
-Americans were asked about whether they’d be more or less likely to vote for a candidate who was endorsed by Joe Biden. Overall, 16 percent say they would be more likely to vote for the candidate, 29 percent say less likely, and 53 percent say it doesn’t make a difference.
-Among Democrats, 42 percent say they will be more likely to vote for the candidate, 53 percent say it doesn’t make a difference, and 3 percent say less likely.
-A majority of Americans, 54 – 33 percent, say they think Joe Biden will not run for president in 2024, with another 13 percent not offering an opinion.
-Just under half of Americans (48 percent) say they think it would be bad for the country if Joe Biden ran for president in 2024, while 37 percent think it would be good for the country.
A report came out last month suggesting that Donald Trump is going to be running for president in 2024.
Trump “has told at least three people he’s dined within recent months that he plans to run in 2024,” Rolling Stone reported.
One former Republican National Committee official told Rolling Stone: “I have three friends who’ve had dinner with him in the last couple of months. All three reported that his current plans are to run for president in 2024. Now, whether he does or not is a different issue. We’ve still got three years to go. But he’s telling people that.”
“Now, whether he does or not is a different issue,” the official added. “We’ve still got three years to go. But he’s telling people that.”
“All the people I talk to who deal with him directly think as of now he is running,” an ex-Trump adviser added.
Other prominent political figures also think it’s obvious Trump is gearing up to run again.
Former Bill Clinton aide Dick Morris says it’s “obvious” that Donald Trump will win in 2024.
In a video posted to his website, Morris said the Republican nominee in 2024 is named Trump and no one else can come close to touching him.
“If Donald Trump runs, and I’m pretty certain that he will, he is going to win the Republican nomination, period,” Morris said.
Steve Bannon, who served as the chief White House strategist for President Trump, also made a huge prediction.
“Donald J. Trump is running again in 2024, there’s absolutely no doubt about that,” he said.
“This movement is on the march. Donald Trump is going to run for president again and I gotta tell you, he’s not gonna be stopped by a bunch of pencil necks in New York City that are putting up these trumped-up charges to try to stop him, it’s only gonna empower him,” Bannon said.
