Newly released polling data shows that half of Americans don’t expect President Joe Biden to run for office again in 2024.
The Wall Street Journal released polling data on the issue, the latest in a stream of polling numbers that don’t show much confidence in Democrats.
President Biden enters this year’s midterm elections with roughly half of Americans doubting he will seek re-election in 2024, with some citing the toll of the office on the country’s oldest president as the nation is facing a pandemic, high inflation and Russia’s war with Ukraine.
A new Wall Street Journal poll found that 52% of Americans don’t think Mr. Biden will run for re-election in two years, while 29% do expect him to pursue a second term. Nineteen percent are undecided about his future. Among Democrats, 41% said they think Mr. Biden will run again, while 32% said they didn’t think he would. The poll found 26% of those Democrats unsure.
The poll comes after other recent polling showed that 57% of voters are unhappy with Biden’s job performance so far.
“Americans know Democrats are destroying economic opportunity and prosperity in this country with one failed policy after another,” said National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Mike Berg.
At the same time, gas prices are only expected to increase, and Democrats will likely take much of the blame for that rise in costs.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 78% of American adults say they’re paying more for a gallon of gas today compared to six months ago, and 84% think it’s likely those prices will continue to climb over the next six months,” Rasmussen said. “This includes 64% who think it’s very likely they’ll be paying even more for a gallon of gas in six months than they are today.”
