Biden prepares 2024 campaign launch, but many Americans prefer someone else

 April 24, 2023

President Joe Biden is reportedly expected to announce his 2024 reelection campaign this week as many Americans say they prefer someone else.

Just 47% of Democrats said Biden should run again, according to a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, with on 26% of Americans overall supporting his second term.

A mixed message

"The good news: 78% of Democrats said they approve of the job Biden is doing, and 81% said they would probably vote for him in the general election if he’s the nominee," USA Today reported.

"Forty-one percent said they’d definitely back him; 40% said they probably would," it added.

Back again?

"During the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden appeared to hint that he would limit himself to just one term in the White House, framing his candidacy as a bridge to a new generation of Democratic leaders," the Associated Press reported.

"But while in office, Biden has made his intentions clearer that he would run again for a second term, saying as recently as last week in Ireland that he’s “already made that calculus” and that the announcement will happen 'relatively soon,'" it continued.

The news comes just a week after Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced the launch of his campaign for the Democratic nomination.

"A lot to talk about"

"This is what happens when you censor somebody for 18 years. I got a lot to talk about. They shouldn't have shut me up for that long because now I'm really going to let loose on them for the next 18 months," Kennedy said before a packed house in Boston last week.

In addition to Kennedy, a growing number of GOP candidates are entering the field in a bid to limit Biden to one term.

In addition to a comeback bid by former President Donald Trump, Nikki Haley and Sen. Tim Scott have both announced campaigns for president, with others expected to join in the weeks ahead.

Biden now faces increased competition as he seeks to win back America's vote despite concerns over his leadership and age.
