Time to go, Joe! Shock poll finds 64% of Americans DON’T want Biden, 79, to run for office again in 2024 – but it’s bad news for Trump too with 55% urging him not to launch second White House bid

  •  21% said Biden should run again in 2024,  and 15% said they remained unsure
  •  31% said that Trump should run again in 2024, and 14% said they remained unsure
  • The poll found that if an election were carried out between the two presidents today, Trump would narrowly win with 42% of voters over Biden’s 39%

A staggering new survey has found that a majority of Americans polled don’t want President Joe Biden to run for office again in 2024. 

And the poll also spelled trouble for Donald Trump, finding that a majority of voters didn’t think the former president should run for reelection too.

The poll, carried out by Yahoo! News and the market research company YouGov, found that a shocking 64 per cent of Americans answered ‘No’ to the question, ‘Should President Biden run for president again in 2024?’

A measly 21 per cent answered ‘Yes’ to the question, and 15 per cent said they were unsure about whether the 79-year-old Biden should run again in 2024.

Trump’s numbers were only slightly better with 55 per cent of voters polled saying that the 76-year-old should not run in 2024. 

Meanwhile, 31 per cent said that the former President should run, and 14 per cent said they remained unsure.

The poll found that if an election were carried out between the two presidents today, Trump would narrowly win with 42 per cent of voters over Biden’s 39 per cent.

Data from Democrat and Republican voters showed that Biden and Trump do maintain the support of their respective parties – Trump moreso than his rival.

A total of 43 per cent of Democrats said Biden should run again in 2024, with 36 per cent saying he shouldn’t, and 21 per cent unsure. 

Two fifths of those who said Biden shouldn’t run again in two years voted for him in 2020.  

Of voters who were against a 2024 Biden run, 66 per cent were white, 49 per cent were black, and 65 per cent were hispanic.

Trump’s command over his party was considerably stronger compared to Biden’s. 

A 58 per cent majority of Republicans said that Trump should run again in 2024, while just 25 per cent were against a rerun. 17 per cent remained undecided. 

Only 21 per cent of Republicans who voted for Trump in 2020 said that he should not run again in 2024.

Voters who did not want to see a 2024 Trump ticket were 50 per cent white, 75 per cent black, and 58 per cent Hispanic.

The poll called on 1,541 US adults between June 10 and 13 – just as inflation in the US under Biden’s administration has hit the highest levels in over 40 years, and as the US House Committee held publicly broadcast hearings investigating President Trump’s culpability in the January 6, 2021, attack on the US capital. 

Thirty six per cent of voters polled who were in favor of a 2024 Biden bid watched January 6 hearings live, and 24 per cent watched news coverage. 

Meanwhile, 73 per cent who said no to a 2024 Trump ticket watched the January 6 hearings live, and 59 per cent followed news coverage.

If Biden and Trump ran against each other in 2024, they would be the oldest lineup of candidates in US history – a record they already set in 2020. 

Biden would be 81 in November, 2024 – and just days away from 82 – and Trump would be 77.
