Less than half of Democrats want Biden to run in 2024: Poll

Significantly less than half of Democrats want President Joe Biden on the ballot in 2024, according to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll.

A paltry 37% of Democrats would like the president seek election in 2024. Among Democrats 18-44, that number is much lower at just 23%, while the figure is 49% among Democrats 45 and up.

The poll of adults nationwide found that overall, only 22% of adults hope to see Biden mount a reelection bid.

Biden, who is the oldest president in history, would be 86 by the end of a second term.

"I, honestly, think that he would be too old," 37-year-old Democrat Sarah Overman said, according to the Associated Press. "We could use someone younger in the office."

"I believe he's not the one who's calling the shots," Republican John Rodriguez, 76, said, according to the outlet. "He's a puppet being told where to go, what to say."

Vikram Joglekar, 46, supported Biden in 2020 but described the president's time in office as "meh," according to the AP. "It's not up for me to decide whether someone should run or not," Joglekar said. "I don't know who is going to be on the ballot, but I would hope it would be someone better from his party."

"He seems to be in pretty good condition in my opinion and that's coming from a 76-year-old woman," Democrat Linda Lockwood said, according to the AP. "You might be a little more careful going down the steps as you get older, but if your brain is still working, that’s the important part."

Former President Donald Trump announced last year that he is running for election again — he will likely face GOP primary challengers as he seeks to clinch the Republican presidential nomination. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is reportedly planning to announce a White House bid this month.
