Just 30% of voters say Biden should run for re-election: Poll

Nearly 60% of voters say President Biden should not run for re-election in 2024, with most citing his age as a reason for their views, according to a new poll.

The Redfield & Wilton Strategies poll, conducted for Newsweek and released on Tuesday, found that 58% of voters do not want the 80-year-old commander in chief to seek a second term.

Only 30% of eligible voters surveyed said Biden should run again in 2024, and 42% said the president’s advanced age was the top reason for their response.

Other reasons voters gave for not wanting the octogenarian president to run for re-election included concerns about the Biden administration’s economic policies (16%), favoritism for other potential Democratic candidates (7%) and the results of the midterm elections (1%).

The poll, conducted Dec. 5, polled 1,500 eligible voters, of whom 12% were unsure whether they believed Biden should launch a re-election campaign.

Biden, the longest-serving U.S. president in history, has announced he will run for another four-year term but has delayed a final decision until early next year.

He would be 86 years old when he leaves office when he completes a full second term.

Biden has reportedly “disclosed to allies” how much his age is being discussed in the media as he weighs a run in 2024, Politico reported Tuesday.

“You think I don’t know how f***ing old I am?” An angry Biden snubbed one of his acquaintances earlier this year, according to the outlet.

But Biden himself has acknowledged that his age is a “legitimate” issue.

“I think it’s legitimate to be concerned about anyone’s age, including mine,” Biden said during an October interview with MSNBC. “And I think the best way to make the judgment is to watch me. am i slower Do I have the same pace?”

In a hypothetical 2024 duel with former President Donald Trump, the only declared presidential nominee for 2024, Biden beats the 76-year-old Trump 47% to 40%, according to a USA Today/Suffolk University poll released Tuesday.
