Skip to comments.Biden 2024? Most Democrats say no thank you: AP-NORC poll

A majority of Democrats now think one term is plenty for President Joe Biden, despite his insistence that he plans to seek reelection in 2024.
That’s according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research that shows just 37% of Democrats say they want him to seek a second term, down from 52% in the weeks before last year’s midterm elections.
While Biden has trumpeted his legislative victories and ability to govern, the poll suggests relatively few U.S. adults give him high marks on either. Follow-up interviews with poll respondents suggest that many believe the 80-year-old’s age is a liability, with people focused on his coughing, his gait, his gaffes and the possibility that the world’s most stressful job would be better suited for someone younger.
“I, honestly, think that he would be too old,” said Sarah Overman, 37, a Democrat who works in education in Raleigh, North Carolina. “We could use someone younger in the office.”

As if it matters. Biden WILL be installed for a second term. The infrastructure is set.
Same as 2020. No way Joseph Stolen got 81 mil votes
What a load.
81 million ballots. Not voters.
I don’t understand. Joe is a deluded narcissist, a total fraud and a dementia patient.
Who could possibly represent the Dems better?
But they’ll still vote for him when the election comes around
Anyone remember the old days of the pre-Gorbachev USSR when we used to laugh at old fossils like Chernenko whom the politburo would install. Who’s laughing now? Those old Soviet farts were younger and sharper than Brandon.
“… “I, honestly, think that he would be too old,” said Sarah Overman, 37, a Democrat who works in education in Raleigh, North Carolina. “We could use someone younger in the office.”…”
Run, Kamala, run! ;-)
Since when do Democrats choose their candidates???
Neither Biden OR his running mate actually won any of their primaries...
What a joke
For conservatives, it’s better he runs...
they never liked him to begin with, hardly anyone voted “FOR” Biden it was all hatred against Trump.
I would think that the bideneconomy and threat of nuclear war with Russia would have been the turn off...
So Biden is at 37% with a wide open field. What % did he get in actual primaries in 2020? At least, what was recorded?
he will be encouraged not to run(see document scandal)
harris will get creamed in the primaries
Democrat polls mean nothing...the drones will vote for whomever their masters tell them to vote for...
Nobody is running against him.
A lot of dims don’t want him for another term, but they don’t matter. The party will pick the candidate and the winner.
Suck it up dims.
As the president gives his (Mao Report) address on Tuesday, he has a chance to confront fundamental doubts about his competence to govern.
Waders and barf pail required for the Mao address.
No way Joseph Stolen got 81 mil votes
Be careful...don’t underestimate the power of the elite to sway elections.
I love this place!
