Former President Donald Trump is holding onto his very loyal base while Biden is sinking like a stone.
According to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports, if an election were held today between Trump and Biden, Trump would win by a double digit margin.
“Biden Shouldn’t Run in 2024, Most Voters Say” A majority of voters think President Joe Biden shouldn’t seek reelection in 2024, and he would lose a rematch with former President Donald Trump by double-digit margins.
Sixty-one percent (61%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe Biden should not run for a second term as president in 2024. Only 28% say Biden should seek reelection, while another 11% are not sure.
If the next presidential election were held today, and Biden were running against Trump, 50% would vote for Trump while 36% would vote for Biden.
The results would be somewhat closer with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as Biden’s Republican opponent. Forty-six percent (46%) would vote for DeSantis and 35% would vote for Biden if the election were held today, while another 11% say they would vote for someone else. Forty-two percent (42%) of voters have a favorable impression of Biden, including 25% who have a Very Favorable opinion of him. Fifty-five percent (55%) have an unfavorable view of Biden, including 44% whose opinion of the president is Very Unfavorable
It’s no surprise that Biden would be defeated —many people don’t even want him to run again in 2024. Another survey by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute found that 61% of likely U.S. voters think Biden should not seek reelection in 2024.
