Election 2024 /

Half of Dems Want Another 2024 Candidate; NYT Poll

  |   By Polling+ Staff

Bad news for President Joe Biden.

According to a recent New York Times/Siena College poll, 50% of Democratic voters say their party should nominate someone other than President Joe Biden.

And that’s The New York Times. Yikes.

From The Washington Examiner:

Forty-five percent believe Biden, 80, should be renominated. He would be 86 after a second term.

Despite the large share of Democrats who say it’s time to move on from the current president, this number is down from a year ago.

In 2022, 64% of primary voters reported wanting the party to nominate someone else. That share has shrunk by 14 percentage points.

At the same point in time, only 26% said they wanted Biden to be the nominee again. However, as the 2024 election nears, this number has shot up nearly 20 percentage points.

While there was an increase in primary support for the president, concerns about his age among Democrats have only intensified.

Last year, age was the largest concern for primary voters seeking a different nominee, with 33% attributing their stance to it. Now, nearly 40% name it as their chief reason for wanting someone else.
