According to a recent survey conducted by Fox News, the majority of Democratic primary voters prefer someone other than President Joe Biden to be the party’s nominee in the 2024 presidential election. The survey asked whether Biden should be the Democratic nominee or whether the party should choose “someone else.” 53% of respondents answered that they preferred someone else as the nominee, while 37% preferred to keep Biden.
These numbers demonstrate that Biden is struggling to gain majority support for his reelection bid. A similar Rasmussen Reports survey showed that 56% of voters, including both Democrats and Republicans, did not want Biden to run for reelection. 32% of respondents said they wanted him to run again, while 12% were unsure. Among Democrats, 53% supported the idea of Biden running for reelection, while 25% did not.
A Washington Post/ABC News poll asked Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents whether they would prefer to nominate Biden or someone else. 58% said they would prefer someone else, while only 31% wanted Biden.
While these survey results show that Democrats may not be enthusiastic about Biden’s candidacy, a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll found that 50% of Democrats believed that the party had the best chance of winning the presidency in 2024 with Biden as the nominee.
It is essential to note that the Fox News survey showed a clear difference in the level of support that Trump and Biden received from their respective parties. At the same point in his presidency, 72% of Republican voters wanted Trump as the GOP nominee again in 2020, showing a much higher level of support than what Biden is currently receiving from Democrats.
It is crucial for passionate Republican voters to pay attention to these survey results, as they may impact voter turnout in the 2024 election. If Democrats are not enthusiastic about their nominee, they may be less motivated to turn out and vote. As we move closer to the 2024 presidential election, it will be interesting to see how these survey results evolve and how they will impact both parties.
Regardless of one’s political affiliation, it is important to pay attention to these surveys, as they provide valuable insight into the current state of American politics.
It is clear that Biden is struggling to gain majority support from his own party, and this may impact the outcome of the 2024 election. Only time will tell what the future holds, but for now, these survey results provide a glimpse into the current political landscape.
