Poll: 60 percent do not want Trump to run again in 2024
Sixty percent of voters don’t want President Trump to run for president again in 2024, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHouse/Marist poll released Wednesday.
The survey found just 32 percent of respondents think the president should run for a second nonconsecutive term.
A majority of Republicans said they would support Trump running in 2024, but the percentage, 67 percent, is significantly lower than the over 90 percent support he enjoyed among his party during the election.
Sixty-five percent of respondents said the president should concede to President-elect Joe Biden and 61 percent said that despite his frequent unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud, the official results are accurate.
The poll comes the same day as a Politico/Morning Consult poll indicating 60 percent of Republicans think Trump is likely to run again, including 76 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 47 percent of Democrats. An earlier survey found 53 percent of Republicans would support the president in 2024 if he ran.
Although Trump has refused to acknowledge Biden as president-elect and has attempted to overturn the results of the election, he is reportedly planning on announcing a 2024 run once Biden’s victory is certified. At a White House Christmas party last week, Trump seemingly alluded to the plan, saying “It’s been an amazing four years. We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
Trump, who is not expected to attend Biden’s inauguration, is also reportedly considering counterprogramming the ceremony with an official campaign launch event for a 2024 bid.
Marist pollsters surveyed 1,065 adults, including 916 registered voters, from Dec. 1-6. The survey has a 3.7-point margin of error and a four-point margin of error for registered voters.
