Both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are failing to attract majority support from their party’s voters ahead of the 2024 White House race, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Just 35% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents want Biden as their 2024 presidential nominee, while 56% prefer someone else and 9% gave no opinion, the poll found.
Meanwhile, 47% of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents support having Trump as their party’s nominee — a 20-point drop from his level of backing in the 2020 race. Among these voters, 46% want someone else and 7% had no opinion.
The new poll, released Sunday, was produced by Langer Research Associates and conducted Sept. 18-21 among a random national sample of 1,006 adults, including 908 registered voters. There is a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
The poll also found that Biden, who is 79, has a slight edge over Trump, 76, in a rematch, with 48% support vs. 46%, as shown in the chart above.
This poll had similar results as a New York Times/Siena College survey in July, which found 64% of Democratic voters don’t want Biden to run again in two years.
