New York Times/Siena College Poll shows that 64% don’t think President Joe Biden should run for president again in 2024.
As RedState’s Nick Arama reported, Biden’s approval rating has dipped to 29 percent. Now, even Democrats, along with Republicans and Independents, don’t want to see Biden run in 2024.
Biden claimed that he would run for president in 2024. This could allow him to become the nominee even if another progressive candidate is challenged by him. Only 26 percent of Democrat voters surveyed said that the party should renominate Biden for 2024. The poll also found that 94% of Democrats younger than 30 wanted to nominate someone else.
Just six percent of the working class — 18 to 64 years old — told the pollsters that the economy is in “good” or “excellent” condition, while 93 percent rated it “poor” or “fair,” as these numbers continue to be damning for Biden.
Nicole Farrier (38-year-old Michigan preschool teacher and Biden voter) told The New York Times she once hoped that Biden would unify the nation and heal the divides, but is now disillusioned.
“I’m just going to come out and say it: I want younger blood … I am so tired of all old people running our country. I don’t want someone knocking on death’s door.”

The Democrats have minimal depth, assuming Vice President Kamala Harris doesn’t run or win the nomination. Some of the names mentioned include Governors Andy Beshear, Gavin Newsom, Roy Cooper (D–NC), J.B. Pritzker and Senator Amy Klobucar.
The progressive wing of the party will come up with a challenger as well, but if Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) or Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) do not run in 2024, the progressives will likely have a slim chance as a far-left member of the “Squad” will be their choice. Other than Newsom, moderate alternatives have a greater chance of winning the nomination.
You can see that their depth is far below what they showed in 2020. Cooper and Beshear are the best candidates to replace Biden if they want the Democrats to win 2024.
Trump may not decide to run, but former Vice President Mike Pence and former United States Ambassador Nikki Haley are all hinting at running. Governor Larry Hogan (R–MD), Senator Ted Cruz(R-TX) and Senator Tom Cotton both have made or plan to travel to Iowa. In the event that Governor Ron DeSantis (R–FL) decides not to run, it appears that he will have support from GOP donors and insiders.
After the November midterms it will become clearer which candidate will be running for president in 2024. The majority of Americans don’t want to see Trump and Biden 2024 again. Farrier said that younger people are more likely to run.
