Americans are uninterested in reviving another fight between President Joe Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election, even though such a clash seems the most likely scenario at this point, according to a new survey.
A poll by NBC News found that 60% of Americans, including a third of Republicans, believe Trump should not launch a new run for the White House. About 30% of those who think he should not campaign in 2024 cite the “guilty” charges against the current Grand Old Party frontrunner in New York as a “main” reason. Meanwhile, 70% of Americans think Biden should not run for a second term, with 51% coming from his own Democratic camp. Biden’s advanced age, 80, was cited by 78% of those who believed he should not run again.
Other polls confirm the same low voter enthusiasm as Trump or Biden prepare for a rematch. Trump launched his campaign in November, and after the midterms, Biden is expected to enter the field soon.
A Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that 38% of respondents said they were “tired” of a Biden-Trump presidential rematch.
In an NBC News poll of 1,000 voters conducted in mid-April with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, Trump still leads the GOP camp by 15% over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — who has yet to announce his intention to run for president.
And 41% of registered voters said they would definitely or probably vote for Biden if he ran, 88% of whom were Democrats.
