Only one-fifth of Americans who participated in a recent poll say they want to see President Joe Biden top the Democratic Party ticket in the 2024 presidential race. However, even fewer folks want to see Vice President Kamala Harris as the nominee.
The president was named by 22 percent of the participants in the survey from I&I/TIPP, with Harris netting 12 percent of 1,013 registered voters who were questioned in the poll, which was conducted online between Dec. 1-4 by TechnoMetrica Intelligence, according to reports from Tipp Insights.
So how did the other potential candidates fair in the poll? They didn’t get out of single digits. Ouch.
Here are some of the findings of the survey via Newsmax:
- Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, 4%.
- New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy, and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams each attracted 3%.
- New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet each gathered 2%.
- Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker all attracted less than 1%.
“Meanwhile, 6% said they preferred someone other than the people named on the list, and 31% said they are unsure of who they want, signaling that it may be too soon for them to have decided who they would want in 2024,” the report continued.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
“Meanwhile, only 8% of Republicans polled said they want Biden to return as the Democrat nominee. However, 8% of independents and other non-major party voters said they want Biden to return, but 10% of them want to see Harris top the ticket rather than Biden, suggesting he may have trouble attracting swing voters,” the report added.
However, Democrats were also less than excited over Biden coming back for a second go, with 37 percent stating they wanted him to top the ticket, while 16 percent saying the want his vice president, Kamala Harris, to be the nominee.
Meanwhile, in other results:
- Men favored Biden, with 27% of those polled saying they want him to top the ticket, compared to 16% of women.
- 20% of white voters said they want Biden as the nominee, compared to 26% of Black and Hispanic voters. Meanwhile, just 17% of the minority voters said they want Harris to lead the ticket.
The poll comes as Biden’s political support continues to fall. According to a RealClearPolitics average of polls, the president’s approval rating is at 42.35%, with his disapproval at 52.2%.
