The majority of Democrats are sick and tired of President Joe Biden, and according to a new survey do not want to see him run for reelection.
A survey conducted by SSRS for CNN found that 51% of Democratic voters do not wish to see the president run for the White House again in 2024 – while 45% of delusional voters claimed they would support another Biden presidential bid.
Democrats’ primary reasons for not wanting to see him run again were related to the fact that they simply don’t think he would win a second election after the pitiful performance he has put on thus far.
“Of those Democratic-aligned voters hoping to see Biden replaced on the ticket, 31% said it was because they didn’t want him to be reelected. Thirty-five percent said it was mostly because they doubted Biden’s ability to win against a Republican candidate, and the rest offered up other reasons for wanting to switch up the ticket — the most common (19%) being concerns about Biden’s age. (Biden will turn 82 in November 2024.),” CNN reported.
The poll further noted that while Democrats can’t wait to see Biden out of the White House, the majority don’t even have an idea of which notable Democrat would be a better alternative – signaling the disastrous state of the party.
“Democratic-aligned voters also aren’t yet gravitating en masse toward any specific alternatives: Only 12% of all Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters wanted to see a nominee who isn’t Biden and had a specific alternative in mind. No individual candidate was named by more than 5% of those who didn’t want Biden atop the ticket.”
The left-leaning poll also made the claim that former President Donald Trump similarly lacks majority support from his party for another presidential run. “Forty-nine percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning respondents said that they would prefer to see another candidate take the GOP nomination for president in 2024, and 50% said they would support Trump’s 2024 run.”
Biden’s presidency has been a disaster in nearly every way imaginable. His overall disapproval rating has risen to an embarrassing 53.8% according to Real Clear Politics polling average, with his average approval rating sitting barely above 40%.
At the same time, the GOP has been picking up steam as an increasing number of voters identify themselves as Republicans according to a recent Gallup poll which found that between the first quarter of 2012 through the last quarter of 2021, a massive shift occurred in the American electorate, as a nine-point lead for Democratic voters turned into a five-point lead for Republicans voters.
Biden, meanwhile, seems to be intent on seeking re-election. Asked last March at the first formal news conference of his presidency about his 2024 plans, Biden said, “My answer is yes. I plan on running for reelection. That’s my expectation.”
He said in an interview with a separate ABC News in December that “if I’m in the health I’m in now, if I’m in good health, then in fact, I would run again.”
He also reassured that Vice President Kamala Harris – who has endured even worse approval numbers than him somehow – would indeed be his running mate again, “she’s going to be my running mate, number one…And number two…I think she’s doing a good job.”
