According to a preliminary national exit poll conducted on Tuesday, many Americans evidently do not want President Joe Biden (D) to run for president again, Breitbart News reported.
According to CBS News Radio’s Steve Portnoy, when asked if they would like to see Biden run for president again in 2024, 66% replied “No,” and 30% said “Yes.”
Inflation was cited as the top concern by 32% of voters on Election Day as they were leaving the polls, according to CBS News.
Twenty-seven percent of respondents cited abortion as their top issue, followed by 12% who cited crime, 12% who cited gun control, and 10 percent who cited immigration.
Biden stated that his wife agreed with his plan to run for reelection in 2024 during an interview on MSNBC’s the ReidOut in October.
Biden explained, “The reason I’m not making a judgment about formally running or not run, once I make that judgment, a whole series of regulations kick in. And I treat myself as a candidate from that moment on. I have not made that formal decision, but it’s my intention. My intention to run again. And we have time to make that decision.”
Meanwhile, four in ten Democrats want Biden to run again in 2024, according to a recent survey from the Economist and YouGov, Breitbart News reported:
The survey also found Biden’s favorably rating under water, as 43 percent view him favorably, compared to 50 percent who do not. His job approval is even worse. Most, 51 percent, disapprove of his job as president, compared to 42 percent who approve of it.
While a majority, overall, indicate they do not want former President Donald Trump to run again, per the poll, unlike Biden, Trump enjoys majority support from his base, as 54 percent of Republicans want him to run for president again in 2024. Further, a majority of those who voted for Trump in 2020 want him to run again as well.
Donald Trump, the former president, informed the sizable crowd in attendance at a rally in Ohio on Monday night that there would be a “very significant announcement” the following week.
“But not to detract from tomorrow’s very important, even critical election, and I would say in the strongest way it’s a country-saving election specifically including the election of all the people that I’m going to name,” he continued:
“I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, November 15, at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida,” he said as the crowd cheered.
