In this horribly divided nation, it seems like most Americans can agree on one thing: they do not want to see either of the most recent presidents occupy the White House for a second term!
A recent poll found that less than 30% of those surveyed want to see a Biden-Trump rematch and do not want to see either the former or current president reelected, apparently fed-up and frustrated with the both of them.
Only 28% of Americans questioned in a recent AP/NORC national survey said that they want Biden to seek a second term in the White House in the 2024 election. And that includes just 48% of Democrats.
According to the poll, the number was almost the exact same for people who would want to see former President Trump back in the Oval Office. Only 27% of Americans said they would like the former president to seek a return to the White House in 2024. But Trump did fare slightly better with his party, with 56% of Republicans surveyed saying they’d like to see him bid again for the presidency.
For nearly a year, Trump has repeatedly flirted with another White House run. Asked in a recent interview with Fox News about his 2024 plans, the former president once again said he thinks he is “going to make a lot of people happy” with his decision.
And current President Joe Biden has said a handful of times last year that he plans on running for reelection in 2024, and he just recently confirmed during a press conference that if he does, Kamala Harris would once again be his running mate.
The AP/NORC poll was conducted Jan. 13-18, with 1,161 adults nationwide questioned. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
