A brand new poll that was put out by Quinnipiac revealed that the vast majority of American voters do not think that President Joe Biden will end up running for a second term as president in 2024. Which makes sense seeing as how Biden is almost 80 years old.
“A majority of Americans, 54 – 33 percent, say they think Joe Biden will not run for president in 2024, with another 13 percent not offering an opinion,” the poll reported.
“Just under half of Americans (48 percent) say they think it would be bad for the country if Joe Biden ran for president in 2024, while 37 percent think it would be good for the country,” the poll, which surveyed 1,290 adults all across the United States from July 27 to Aug. 2 stated.
By party, three-quarters of Republicans and a majority of independents say Biden won’t run again in 2024. Democrats, meanwhile, are split, with 41% saying Biden will run and 45% saying he won’t.
The pollsters also found that Biden is slipping in job approval. “President Biden gets a mixed job approval rating, with 46 percent of Americans approving and 43 percent disapproving. This compares to a positive 49 – 41 percent job approval in May.”
“He has been leading the charge in the battle to beat back COVID, so why is President Biden losing ground with Americans? As the unvaccinated fall victim to the Delta variant, the ‘turning the corner’ optimism from the White House may be starting to ring premature,” Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy went on to say in a statement.
During the 2020 campaign, Biden declared that he would be a one-term president. But that changed after he got into the White House. Asked in March at his first news conference if he planned to run for re-election, Biden said, “My answer is yes. I plan on running for reelection. That’s my expectation.”
Half of Americans, around 49 percent, believe Donald Trump will definitely run again for president in 2024, with only 39 percent thinking he won’t.
If President Biden were to try and run again in 2024, he would be 82 years old.
This is why so many folks, including Democrats, think the reason he chose Kamala Harris as his vice president was so she could be his successor. However, these same people don’t think Harris can actually win if she were to run for president.
“Many Democrats, including some current senior administration officials, are concerned she could not defeat whomever the Republican Party puts up — even if it were Donald Trump,” Axios reported in a piece published just last month.
“One Democratic operative told Axios’ Alayna Treene that most Democrats aren’t saying, “‘Oh, no, our heir apparent is f***ing up, what are we gonna do?’ It’s more that people think, ‘Oh, she’s f***ing up, maybe she shouldn’t be the heir apparent.’ Some Democrats close to the White House are increasingly concerned about Harris’s handling of high-profile issues and political tone-deafness and question her ability to maintain the coalition that Biden rode to the White House, sources tell Axios’ Hans Nichols,” the report continued.
