More than one-third of Biden 2020 voters do not want him to run for reelection in 2024, a recent survey from YouGov/The Economist revealed.

The survey found 58 percent, overall, revealing they do not want President  Joe Biden to run for office again in 2024, while 24 percent said they do. Another 18 percent remain unsure. 

Predictably, opinions are divided along party lines, as 83 percent of Republicans and 59 percent of independents do not want him to run. Less than a majority of Democrats, 43 percent, believe Biden should run in 2024, while more than one-third, 34 percent, said he should not. Another 23 percent of Democrats remain unsure. 

Notably, over one-third of Biden 2020 voters, 36 percent, do not want him to run in the next presidential race, while less than a majority, 39 percent, said he should. One-quarter of Biden 2020 voters remain unsure. For further comparison, most Trump 2020 voters, 55 percent, want former President Donald Trump to run in 2024, and 53 percent of Republicans across the board say the same. 

The survey was taken February 25-28, 2023, among 1,500 U.S. adult citizens. 

It coincides with other polls showing Biden’s inability to win over a majority of Democrats to support his potential 2024 presidential bid. A recent Fox News survey, for instance, found 53 percent of Democrat voters asserting that “someone else” should be their nominee in the forthcoming presidential election, compared to 37 percent who said “keep Biden” as the nominee. 

As Breitbart News reported:

The article added further perspective to Biden’s figures among the Democrat base, noting that Trump saw far more support from his Republican base at the same point in his presidency, as 72 percent of Republican voters wanted to see him as the GOP nominee again in 2020.

Similarly, a McLaughlin & Associates survey released last month found just more than a quarter, 26 percent, supporting Biden in a crowded Democrat field. 

“While Biden has not formally announced a presidential run, first lady Jill Biden said she is “all for it.”

“Well, he said he intends to run. So, nothing’s been planned yet,” she told CNN, later adding that they will support Biden in whatever he chooses to do. However, when asked if there is any chance that he will not run, the first lady replied, “Not in my book.”
