(Republican Insider) – While Joe Biden had reportedly stated that he is planning on running for re-election in the 2024 presidential race, a brand new poll has revealed that the vast majority of Americans would actually prefer him to sit it out.
According to the Issues & Insights/TIPP Poll, it seems that the American people want to have anyone, and we do mean anyone, to run for the office of president besides Joe Biden.
“The perhaps not-so-surprising answer emerging from the latest I&I/TIPP Poll seems to be: ‘Anyone but Joe Biden,’” Issues & Insights stated in its report on Monday.
A report from The Western Journal stated that the survey asked participants of all political affiliations, from a wide variety of demographics, “Who do you want to see run for president on the Democratic ticket in 2024?”
Only 19 percent of those who responded stated that they would like to see Biden run for re-election.
“The rest of the choices were spread out among 18 other candidates, while 6 percent simply said ‘other’ and 28 percent said they were ‘not sure,'” the report said. “Put another way, 81 percent of Americans don’t want Biden to run again.”
“The online poll of 981 registered voters, conducted April 4-6, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points. While Biden’s approval ratings have continued to drop throughout his presidency, it is unusual for a president’s re-election to be so unpopular,” Western Journal said.
“Still, for a sitting president barely into his second year in office to be below 20% in the next election’s preference shows just how low Biden has dropped in the public eye. Last week’s I&I/TIPP Poll results showed that a similar level (21%) of Americans didn’t think Biden would even finish his first term, much less run for a second,” Issues & Insights stated in its report.
Biden was hovering around 42 percent for his approval rating on Monday, with 53.2 percent disapproval, according to a report issued by FiveThirtyEight.
And it’s not just the older folks who are unhappy with Biden’s performance. Young voters, who are usually very gung-ho about Democratic Party politicians, are also disapproving of Biden, according to a new poll from Harvard’s Institute of Politics.
“Of the 18- to- 29-year-olds surveyed, only 41 percent approved of Biden and 56 percent disapproved,” the WJ reported.
Yet, despite the widespread disapproval and overall unhappiness of Americans across the country with the performance of the current president, Biden spoke with former President Barack Obama and told him he’s planning to run for re-election in 2024, The Hill stated last week.
“[Biden] wants to run and he’s clearly letting everyone know,” a few sources familiar with the conversations between Obama and Biden stated.
But with polls stating that Americans are willing to take anyone with a pulse over Biden, his chances of cinching a victory in 2024 seem pretty bad right now.
“Even if one considers only the Democrats’ responses to the question of whom they want to run in 2024, there is still little improvement. Just 29% say they want Biden on the Democratic ticket in 2024, perhaps the most telling data point in the entire poll,” Issues & Insights stated.

“Among other possible Democratic presidential candidates, the poll responses indicated that 12 percent of Democrats would prefer Vice President Kamala Harris, 7 percent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former first lady Michelle Obama, 5 percent 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton, and 4 percent for Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker,” the report added.
“Given his weak showing so far — unless he makes a stunning turnaround in public opinion — Biden is likely to attract a challenge from within his own party in 2024,” Issues & Insights pointed out.

The last thing this country needs is Joe Biden in office for another four years. One thing these folks do not seem to be taking into consideration is the man’s age. He’s basically ancient. There’s no way, with his current level of noticeable cognitive degradation, Biden will even be physically or mentally capable of running the country at that point.
All of this has paved the way for a massive Trump comeback in 2024.
