Poll: 70 percent of voters don’t want Biden to run for a second term
A majority of Americans said in a new CNBC All-America Economic Survey that they don’t want President Biden to run for a second term in 2024.
The survey, published on Friday, found that 70 percent of those polled said they don’t want Biden to run, largely citing his age. Nineteen percent of respondents said they would support a Biden reelection bid.
When asked about former President Trump, 61 percent of respondents said they don’t want to see him run for president in the 2024 election, while 30 percent of those surveyed believe that he should run.
Trump, who faces a number of investigations, including ones led by the Department of Justice, announced his third presidential campaign at his Mar-a-Lago estate last month.
Eighty-six percent of Republican respondents said in the poll that they don’t want to see Biden run for reelection in 2024, while 57 percent of Democratic respondents agree with that sentiment.
Sixty-six percent of independent respondents said they don’t want to see Biden run in 2024, according to the poll.
Eighty-eight percent of Democratic respondents said they don’t want to see Trump run for president in the 2024 election, while 37 percent of Republican respondents said the same.
Sixty-one percent of independent respondents said they don’t want to see Trump run for another term at the White House in 2024, the poll said.
The poll comes after Biden and his party scored key victories in the midterm elections, including Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D) win over Republican challenger Herschel Walker in last week’s Georgia runoff, further securing the Democrats’ majority control of the Senate.
Trump, who is expected to face several challengers for the GOP presidential nomination, has narrowly led Biden in hypothetical 2024 match-ups in recent months.
The CNBC All-America Economic Survey was conducted from Nov. 26 to Nov. 30, with a total of 801 respondents participating in the survey. The poll’s margin of error was 3.5 percentage points.
