A recent survey suggests the majority of Americans do not foresee President Biden running for reelection in 2024.
In total, 54 percent of respondents said no when asked, “Do you think Joe Biden will run for president in 2024, or not?” Respectively, 73 percent of Republican participants and 45 percent of Democrats said no. When asked if Biden’s reelection would be good or bad for the country, a mere 37 percent suggested it would be good.
The survey was conducted by Quinnipiac University, reaching 1,290 Americans across the political spectrum at the end of July. If Biden runs for a second term, he will continue to be the oldest US president at the age of 82.
The survey preceded a spike in COVID-19 cases, namely in states like Texas and Florida, two states which opened sooner than others. A surge in illegal immigration also occurred during the time of the survey. These are two factors that potentially influenced the respondents, as well as other recent polls regarding President Biden. Last week, Biden registered at his lowest approval rating since the beginning of his administration.
