The 2024 presidential election is still a few years away, but it’s starting to take center-stage in the political spectrum.
President Joe Biden has already confirmed he’ll run again, and we’ve heard rumors that former President Donald Trump will try again, too.
However, according to one recent poll, the majority of voters don’t want either to run in 2024.
Democrats have shown signs of breaking from the Biden administration, as some reports show a majority of left-wingers want Biden to step down.
At the same time, former POTUS Trump continues to tease another campaign for 2024, and he does retain a huge number of followers.
According to a poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult, more Americans don’t want Biden to run compared to Trump.
But in somewhat surprising news for Trump fans, neither man holds a majority in this particular survey.
From Fox News:
Sixty-one percent of respondents said they were opposed to a Trump candidacy, with 48% saying Trump should ‘definitely not’ run in the next election and 13% saying he should ‘probably not’ run.
At the same time, about 64 precent of respondents said Biden shouldn’t run for re-election. 46 percent said he “definitely” shouldn’t run.
Biden’s approval rating has continued to fall over the past year, with some polls putting his job performance in the low 30s.
In fact, just this week, one poll showed the President’s approval at a stunning 29%, which tied him with Jimmy Carter for the lowest ever.
On the flip side, a Politico poll says Trump’s favorability is at 42%. It’s still not the majority but certainly higher than Biden.
Even so, knowing that the majority of those surveyed want neither man to run is eye-opening.
Democrat possibilities for 2024 include Vice President Kamala Harris and Independent Bernie Sanders, while on the GOP side Florida Governor Ron DeSantis tops the list.
Just recently, DeSantis started beating Trump in hypothetical 2024 polls, so the winds could be changing there.
- A recent poll showed that more people don’t want Biden to run compared to Trump.
- But the survey also showed that the majority of voters don’t want either man to run in 2024.
- It’s possible that both Democrats and Republicans will need fresh candidates.
