According to a new poll from ABC News/Washington Post, a majority of Democrats would like to see someone else become the Democratic nominee to run for the White House in 2024 —not a great sign for Joe Biden, as he continues to lose support among his own party.
“Looking two years off, just 35 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents favor Biden for the 2024 nomination; 56 percent want the party to pick someone else. Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, for their part, split 47-46 percent on whether Donald Trump should be their 2024 nominee – a 20-point drop for Trump compared with his 2020 nomination,” a news release regarding the poll stated. “The unpopularity of both figures may encourage third-party hopefuls, though they rarely do well.”
From The Daily Wire:
The poll also found respondents were essentially split regarding a potential Biden rematch with former President Donald Trump, with 48% choosing Biden and 46% choosing Trump. However, among registered voters, the numbers flip 46% for Biden and 48% for Trump.
The low polling in support of Biden running again in 2024 could also have a negative impact on the November midterm elections for Democrats. A variety of polls have shown Republicans leading in key House matchups.
