Poll: Majority of voters want Biden to make way for someone else in 2024

A majority of voters said President Biden should make way for someone else in 2024 instead of running for re-election, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Sixty-one percent of registered voters in the Nov. 9-10 survey said Biden should make way for another figure in 2024.

By contrast, 24 percent of respondents said he should run for president again and 15 percent they were unsure.

A plurality of Democrats, 45 percent, said they want Biden to run again while 37 percent said he should move aside for someone else and 18 percent are unsure.

Eighty-seven percent of Republicans and 59 percent of independents said Biden, who would be 81 in 2024, should make way for another presidential candidate in 2024.

The poll also found 46 percent of registered voters said they think that Biden has done less than expected since entering the White House while 23 percent say they think he’s done more than expected and 31 percent say he has done about as much as expected.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 921 registered voters between Nov. 9-10. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
