Democrats don’t want Biden to run again in 2024: Poll

The American people have turned on Joe Biden, with even a majority of Democrats now saying that they don’t want him to run for re-election in 2024.

A sobering New York Times/Siena College poll found that 64% of Democrats want to ditch Biden and just 33% of voters approve of Biden’s performance, Fox News reported.

Dems don’t want Biden

With Americans suffering from the highest inflation in decades and record gas prices, just 13% said the country is moving in the right direction.

The White House has insisted to a skeptical public that Biden, 79, will run in 2024. But fully 64% of Democratic voters do not want him to, the survey found, compared to 26% of Democrats who want him to run again.

Democrats cited — surprise, surprise — worries about Biden’s age and his competence as their top reasons for doubting him.

Biden is doing the worst with young Democrats, a group that was key to his 2020 electoral coalition. Ninety-four percent of Democrats under 30 want someone other than Biden to run in 2024.

Despite Biden’s implausible boasts that the economy is in rapid recovery, just 6% of working-age voters rated the economy as good or excellent. Over 75% of voters said the economy was extremely important to them.

Biden’s deep slide

One Biden voter who said he regrets his choice in 2020 told the Times, “I thought he was going to do something for this country, but now he’s doing nothing.”

Just 70% of Democrats overall approve of Biden’s performance and even Black voters, Biden’s most supportive group, would narrowly prefer someone else to run in 2024, the poll found.

It’s a stunning turnabout from a year ago, when Biden was riding high on positive, kid-gloved press. Now, Democrats are starting to publicly acknowledge doubts about Biden’s health and fitness as they brace for a shellacking in the midterm elections.

Biden has responded to criticism mostly by flailing about and casting blame on others. The president was the very picture of weakness when he sent off a July 4th weekend tweet blaming gas station owners for pain at the pump.

“Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now,” Biden snarled.
