New polling data shows the majority of Americans are not interested in another four years of President Joe Biden’s leadership.
Rasmussen Reports released the poll earlier this month, which found that he would lose if former President Donald Trump ran again.
“A majority of voters think President Joe Biden shouldn’t seek reelection in 2024, and he would lose a rematch with former President Donald Trump by double-digit margins,” Rasmussen said.
The poll also found only 28% of those surveyed want Biden to run again.
“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Biden should not run for a second term as president in 2024,” Rasmussen said. “Only 28% say Biden should seek reelection, while another 11% are not sure.”
The poll comes as Biden struggles with economic issues and has taken fire for foreign policy problems like the Russian invasion of Ukraine and his deadly and chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
The polling also found Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis could beat Biden.
“The results would be somewhat closer with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as Biden’s Republican opponent,” Rasmussen said. “Forty-six percent (46%) would vote for DeSantis and 35% would vote for Biden if the election were held today, while another 11% say they would vote for someone else. Forty-two percent (42%) of voters have a favorable impression of Biden, including 25% who have a Very Favorable opinion of him. Fifty-five percent (55%) have an unfavorable view of Biden, including 44% whose opinion of the president is Very Unfavorable.”
