It had to happen sooner rather than later, and it has now. Recently, two Democrats from Minnesota have come out against President Joe Biden running for reelection. This is particularly noteworthy given that polls show that the majority of Americans believe Biden should not run.
According to a Yahoo/YouGov poll from June, 64% of respondents don’t think Biden should run for re-election and 55% don’t think Trump should run again.
In a July News Nation/Decision Desk HQ poll, 30% of Democrats and nearly 60% of Americans agreed that Biden shouldn’t run for office again.
In a July poll for the Des Moines Register, Iowa, conducted by respected pollster J. Ann Selzer, 52 percent of Democrats and 67 percent of Iowans expressed hope that Biden wouldn’t run for office again in 2024.
According to a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll conducted in late June, 71 percent of respondents do not believe that Biden should seek re-election, while only 29 percent agree.
64 percent of Democrats, according to the New York Times/Siena College Research Institute, preferred someone else to run in 2024.
