New poll shows diminishing support for Biden’s 2024 re-election campaign amongst Democrats

A recent CNN-SSRS poll reveals growing reservations among Democratic-leaning voters regarding nominating President Joe Biden for a 2024 re-election bid.

The survey indicates that two-thirds of these voters believe the Democratic Party should opt for a different nominee, with 82% desiring “Just someone besides Joe Biden.” Notably, age emerged as a major factor in this sentiment, as almost half of the Democratic-leaning respondents cited concerns about Biden’s age, given he is currently 80 and would conclude a second term at 86. Separate polls have corroborated these concerns; a UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll disclosed that 47% of likely California voters might support a third-party candidate if 2024 sees a Biden-Trump rematch.

The broader political landscape indicates a tight race for Biden. While an AP-NORC poll indicated that 69% of Democrats feel Biden might be too old for another term, a more recent CNN poll showed a statistical tie between Biden and potential GOP contenders like former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. However, former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley held a more pronounced lead over Biden, with 49% favoring her to Biden’s 43%.
