Americans are already looking forward to 2024, and the majority of voters revealed they do not want either President Biden or former President Donald Trump to run for president.
A recent Suffolk University/USA Today survey suggests many Americans — Republican and Democrat — want new candidates running in the 2024 presidential election.
Roughly 68% of voters said they do not want Biden to run again. Additionally, 65% said they do not want to see Trump make another run for the White House.
When asked who in the Democratic Party voters would rather see run for president in 2024 besides Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., tied for first place, with nearly 18% support for each. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg received 16%.
Among the other rumored 2024 contenders, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., received 11%; Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., clocked in at 10%; and California Gov. Gavin Newsom garnered just 8% support.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also received 8%, amid whispers she is preparing another run after losing the 2016 election.
On the Republican side, Trump received the most support with 43% choosing him as their 2024 pick. The former president recently teased a possible run at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit, saying he won in 2016 and “may just have to do it again” in 2024.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, arguably Trump’s toughest potential rival in 2024, came in second place with 34% support.
While 8% still remain undecided, 7% said former Vice President Mike Pence would be their choice. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who is a member of the Jan. 6 Committee, former Ambassador Nikki Haley and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie all received under 3% of the vote.
Despite concerns about Biden’s age — he’ll turn 82 in 2024 — and several recent polls showing that a majority of Democrats do not want him as the 2024 Democratic nominee, the president recently told a reporter “they want me to run” and to “read the polls, Jack.”
Biden has not officially announced a re-election bid. However, in a press briefing Friday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told a reporter he will run for re-election.
U.S. voters will next select a new president in November 2024, but politicians are expected to begin announcing their campaigns shortly after the midterm elections this fall.
The Suffolk poll was conducted from July 22-25, 2022, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
