Poll finds one in three Democrats do not support Biden's nomination

 April 21, 2023

According to Breitbart, President Joe Biden received some troubling news this week when a poll showed that many of his supporters are jumping ship. 

Released on Wednesday, the survey was the work of Suffolk University and commissioned by USA Today. It asked 600 Americans who voted for Biden in 2020 about their preferences in next year's Democratic primary race.

One in three Democrats either undecided or backing someone else

The poll found that nearly one-third of Democratic voters are either undecided about who they want to be their party's nominee or actively back someone other than Biden.

The survey reported that just 67% of Biden voters want him at the top of the ticket in 2024. Fourteen percent support Robert Kennedy Jr. and 5% back Marianne Williamson, with the remainder being undecided.

Breitbart noted that Kennedy kicked off his campaign on Wednesday afternoon with supporters at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

Kennedy decries "corporate feudalism"

"My mission over the next 18 months of this campaign, and…throughout my presidency, will be to end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power that is threatening now to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism on our country," he declared.

Kennedy had an interview later that evening with Fox News host Tucker Carlson in which he accused the president of needlessly prolonging the war in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Williamson complained in an interview with Breitbart on Monday that Biden hasn't done enough for working-class Americans.

The candidate described herself as "a Roosevelt Democrat," adding, "I believe that the Democratic Party should stand for unequivocal advocacy for the working people of the United States."

Poll: Nearly half of Democrats think Biden is too old to run again

"In order for us to win in 2024 and in order for us to repair this country, we have to be willing … to cut the cord with the last 50 years of history, we have to be willing to begin a new era," she continued.

"There is no reason why we in this country do not have universal health care, do not have a guaranteed livable wage, do not have free college tuition, do not have paid family leave, and do not have guaranteed sick pay," Williamson insisted.

Wednesday's poll wasn't the only recent source of bad news for Biden, as another survey conducted by YouGov in March found that 68% of registered voters think the 80-year-old Biden is too "too old for another term."

Interestingly, 48% of registered Democrats agreed that Biden is too elderly to serve another term in the White House compared with just 34% who disagreed.
