A strong majority of Democratic voters want the party to nominate someone other than President Joe Biden for the 2024 election.
Bidet’s approval rating has been struggling. The popularity among Americans is pretty low for his own party. New opinion polls carried out by the New York Times and Siena College show that 64 percent of Democratic voters want someone else to be the presidential nominee in 2024.
The poll describes the president as “hemorrhaging support.”
Only 26 percent of Democratic voters told the poll that they would want the party to renominate the current president to run for his second term.
The results make a shocking, and very grim, reading for the White House today. The report laments a “country gripped by a pervasive sense of pessimism,” and says that voters across the United States are giving an approval rating of 33 percent, mostly due to concern over the economy.
Inflation jumped recently as well, adding to a lot of the pessimism across the U.S. Gas prices have been a massive issue too. There are, however, positive signs emerging for gas prices finally, with the average cost at the pump dropping by just over 3 cents on Friday after approaching a dreaded $5 a gallon in some parts of the country.
More than 75 percent of registered voters reportedly believe that the United States is moving in the “wrong direction” with a pessimism that “spans every corner of the country, every age range and racial group, cities, suburbs, and rural areas, as well as both political parties.”
It shows a country severely divided.
Biden earlier signaled that he saw himself as prepping the way for a new guard of Democratic leaders. But since he was elected, and when he is pressed on whether he would seek a second term, he has repeatedly said that he would.
All Democrats being discussed as potential primary opponents to Biden say that they are currently ruling out runs, and many are encouraging others to follow suit.
The chatter is being fed by officials and party leaders who have begun to doubt that Biden is the strongest candidate to beat Donald Trump for the second time in 2024. Fears of another Biden-Trump run are rising across the U.S. and from both sides of the political spectrum.
But so far no one is stepping forward to challenge Biden for the nomination.
Meanwhile, Trump keeps making comments that suggest he will certainly run again in 2024. So if both men decided to run, 2024 is looking like a repeat of 2020 ballots.
