Barely one-in-five voters think it would be good for Democrats if President Joe Biden seeks reelection in 2024, and most believe Republicans are headed for victory in the November midterms.
This is according to a new national survey by Rasmussen Reports.
Polling found that that just 21% of likely U.S. voters believe it would be good for the Democratic Party if Biden runs for reelection in 2024.
Forty-five percent (45%) think a Biden 2024 campaign would be bad for Democrats, and 31% say it wouldn’t make much difference.
A Washington Post opinion columnist recently argued that Biden "should announce now that he will not run for reelection in 2024," which would improve chances of "a favorable congressional result for the Democrats in November’s election."
Forty percent (40%) of voters believe that, if Biden decides against running for re-election in 2024, it would be better for the Democratic Party if he announces his decision before the November midterm elections.
Thirty-five percent (35%) think Biden should wait until after the midterms to make such an announcement, while another 25% are not sure.
As of right now, 55% of voters believe Republicans are most likely to win a congressional majority in the November midterm elections, compared to 32% who think Democrats are most likely to win.
Another 12% are not sure.
