A new poll reveals that the majority of Democratic voters don’t want President Joe Biden to run for a second term.
The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll offered a concerning look at the Biden administration ahead of the president’s State of the Union address.

“The polling numbers reveal just 37 percent of Democrats say they want him to seek a second term, down from 52 percent in the weeks before last year’s midterm elections,” Breitbart News reported.
“AP sets out some of the things holding Biden back from achieving his ambition of a two-term presidency, from legislative failures to his health and age to fears he cannot work with Republicans controlling the House,” it added.

What about Trump?
A separate poll last month found that former President Donald Trump leads Biden in a potential 2024 rematch.
“According to the survey, 49 percent say they would vote for Trump compared to 44 percent who said Biden,” the report stated.
“Of those who said they would support Trump, 37 percent said they ‘definitely’ would, while 35 percent said the same for Biden. Seven percent, overall, remain undecided, which is larger than Trump’s 5-point lead,” it added.

In addition to controversy over Biden’s run for reelection and his address, at least one GOP congresswoman says she’s boycotting the State of the Union.
Rep. May Miller (R-IL) said Saturday that she will not be in attendance when the joint session of Congress meets for Biden’s speech.
“And I’m not going to sit there and listen to him lie and then watch the media and other members of Congress applaud him his lies,” she said.
The growing controversy shows Biden runs a risky campaign in his effort for reelection, including a majority of voters in his own party currently hoping he does not run again in 2024.
