Poll shows most NH Democrats want Biden replaced as 2024 candidate

President Joe Biden continues to suffer from abysmal popularity levels, with a polling aggregate created by FiveThirtyEight putting his average approval rating at just 38.4%.

The president isn’t just struggling with Republicans and independent voters, as new data suggests even many within his own party want him replaced. 

Biden behind Buttigieg

This is according to a University of New Hampshire Survey Center Granite State poll put out this week, which found that just 16% of New Hampshire’s Democratic primary voters listed him as their first choice candidate in 2024.

That put Biden behind Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who was selected by 17% of respondents. Meanwhile Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and California Gov. Gavin Newsom both tied for third place, garnering 10% each.

What’s more, Buttigieg also trounces Biden when it comes to favorability. Whereas the president is regarded favorably by just 22% of New Hampshire Democrats, his transportation secretary is well regarded by 35%.

More findings

The poll also found that a combined 60% of registered Democrats in the state would either “probably” or “definitely” not want to see Biden seek a second term.

Further, an astounding 81% admit to being “very” or “somewhat” concerned about the president’s age. Biden is set to turn 80 in November.

The Daily Caller noted in an article published on Tuesday that those results are consistent with what similar polls have reported.

Still want Biden over Trump

A New York Times/Siena College poll from earlier this month found that 64% of Democratic voters nationally would like to see someone on the ballot other than Biden.

Still, there was a major bright spot for the president, with 92% of Democrats saying they would vote for him if the alternative was his predecessor.

“The poll showed that Democratic misgivings about Mr. Biden seemed to mostly melt away when presented with a choice between him and Mr. Trump: 92 percent of Democrats said they would stick with Mr. Biden,” The New York Times stated.
