Majority Of Democratic Voters Want Someone Other Than Biden

Democratic voters don’t want President Joe Biden to be their party’s nominee in the 2024 election.

A new poll released by Fox News on Sunday shows that 54% of likely voters in the Democratic primary said they prefer to have an alternative candidate to Biden on the ticket. Only 43% of the same voters say they want Biden to be the nominee, with 3% saying they are undecided.

This poll highlights the growing disconnect between the Democratic Party and liberal voters in America and follows in line with many other similar polls taken over the last few months.

Despite being the incumbent, there are many questions surrounding the 81-year-old Biden. Voters are not happy with how he’s been running the country over the last three years, and they are concerned about his advancing age as well.

While the Fox News poll in and of itself is bad enough news for Biden and Democrats, the fact that the negative sentiment toward him is growing is even worse.

In March, a Fox News poll showed that 52% of likely Democratic primary voters wanted an alternative to Biden. That number grew to 53% in October before kicking up another percentage point this month.

Even though many prominent Democrats have said they don’t want Biden to run for reelection, he said he has to do so because he gives his party the best chance to defeat Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.

Just this month, in fact, he told donors that if Trump weren’t running for president, he might not be either. He feels compelled to do so, he said, because Democrats “cannot let him win.”

One month before primary season kicks off, Trump is out ahead of Biden in many major polls. He has a four-point lead over Biden in the Fox News poll and a two-point lead in the NBC News poll.

Trump is also ahead of Biden in six of the seven most crucial swing states in the 2024 election, according to a poll conducted by Morning Consult.

Time is ticking on Biden’s chances to make up this ground. Unfortunately for him, it doesn’t look as though he can count on even die-hard Democrats to back him up, let alone independents or Republicans.
