Just 33 percent of voters would reelect Biden in 2024: Fox News poll
Just a third of U.S. voters say they’d vote to reelect President Biden in the 2024 presidential race, while over half would cast their ballot for someone else, according to a new Fox News poll.
Biden pulled in most of his support from his own party: 71 percent of Democrats said they’d vote for the president in 2024, compared to 13 percent of independents and just 4 percent of Republicans.
Still, with the next presidential election another two years away, a chunk of each group said they didn’t know or that it was too soon to say: 11 percent of Democrats, 5 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of independents.
The overall share of support for a Biden reelection bid ticked down 3 points from a similar survey in January, which found 36 percent would back the president.
By contrast, Biden’s approval rating climbed up 3 points to 46 percent in the last month, up from a low point of 40 in July.
Biden has expressed his intent to run again despite some concerns about his age, and a number of polls suggesting voters may not be enthusiastic about a reelection campaign — though the president’s approval ratings have been on the rise as they bounce back from record lows.
The Fox News poll was conducted Oct. 9-12 and surveyed 1,206 registered U.S. voters. Conducted jointly with Beacon Research and Shaw & Company Research, the results had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
