Most Americans don't want Biden running in 2024

February 6, 2023

America is really down on Joe Biden, with a majority of voters saying they don't want the aging, unpopular president to run for a second term.

A Rassmussen survey found that 56 percent want Biden to step down after his first term is finished.

Biden rejected

Just 53 percent of Democrats said Biden should run for reelection in 2024, while only 17 percent of Republicans and 26 percent of independents said the same.

The survey was taken from January 31 to February 2 with 900 respondent and has a three percent margin of error. The same poll found that only 39 percent want to see Biden keep vice president Kamala Harris as his running mate.

Polls have consistently shown the American people are pessimistic about the economy and lack confidence in Biden, the oldest president in American history.

Biden will deliver his State of the Union Tuesday, where he will be tasked with putting a rosy spin on a weak economy marked by stubbornly high inflation, rising borrowing costs and the threat of a looming recession.

Stuck with Joe?

Meanwhile, Biden's regular episodes of confusion and incoherence have done little to inspire confidence in his ability to lead, and many are skeptical the 80-year-old has what it takes to govern for two terms.

Even Democrats are skittish, with just 37 percent saying they want him to run, an AP poll found. That's a fifteen-point drop since October.

Unfortunately for Democrats, they're trapped by a lack of viable alternatives.

The party leaders are none too impressed with Biden's immediate successor Kamala Harris, who has been the subject of some scathing reports in prestige newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post. 

Rally round the puppet

Biden is expected to kick off his re-election soon, under the shadow of a bruising classified document scandal and a Chinese spying balloon incident that has rattled the country.

Biden has been lagging behind President Trump, his former and potentially future election rival and the only declared 2024 presidential candidate, with a new ABC News/Washington Post poll finding Trump ahead by three points among registered voters and nearly 10 points with independents.

While America is saying "no," the Democratic party establishment is embracing Biden as the party's best shot in 2024, warts and all.

The scandal-plagued president received a warm welcome at a party meeting in Philadelphia this weekend, where party officials shouted "four more years!"

"We're just getting started," Biden said.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
