President Joe Biden is in for a rude awakening. A recent Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll reports that over 70% of Americans don’t think Joe Biden should run for a second term as president, but there’s a catch–Americans don’t want Trump in the Oval Office either.
The Hill reports:
A Harvard CAPS–Harris Poll survey shared exclusively with The Hill found that 71 percent of respondents polled do not think Biden should run for a second term, compared to 29 percent who say he should run.
Among the contingent of respondents who believe the president should not run, 45 percent said Biden should not make another bid because he is a bad president, while about one-third of respondents said he is too old and about one-quarter said because it is time for a change.
“President Biden may want to run again but the voters say ‘no’ to the idea of a second term, panning the job he is doing as president. Only 30 percent of Democrats would even vote for him in a Democratic presidential primary,” Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS–Harris Poll survey, said.
But a majority of respondents — 61 percent — also say former President Trump should not run for the White House in 2024. Thirty-nine percent of respondents said the former president should run again.
Will 2024 entail a rematch between Trump and Biden or is this poll a sign that Americans are ready to move on from each politician? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
