POLL: Americans Ready for No Biden, No Trump in '24

Sure, we may only be a few weeks away from the midterm elections, but you tell that America is already looking well beyond this November.

The candidates that we’ll be seeing on the coming ballots have long been chosen, and we’ve long chosen who we’re voting for.  No amount of incessant television ads are going to change that, and even a minor scandal may not move the needle much at this point.

And so many of us have seen our political thoughts drift toward 2024, when the presumptive match-up for President would see the incumbent Joe Biden in a rematch former President Donald Trump.

But a new poll seems to suggest that Americans just aren’t that into this idea.

Most Americans don’t want either President Biden or his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, to run for the White House again in 2024, according to a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll shared exclusively with The Hill.

Two-thirds of voters surveyed – 67 percent – said that Biden shouldn’t seek another term in the Oval Office, with nearly half citing their belief that he’s a bad president as the reason why. Another 30 percent said it’s simply because Biden, who would be 84 by the time he takes the Oath of Office again, is too old for the job.

And as for Trump?

Trump, meanwhile, doesn’t fare much better when it comes to a 2024 run. Fifty-seven percent said that the former president shouldn’t mount another bid for the White House, despite his repeated hints that he plans to do so.

When it comes to the reason why most voters aren’t keen on another Trump White House run, respondents were divided. Thirty-six percent said that it’s because he is “erratic,” while another 33 percent said they believe he will divide the country. Nearly as many – 31 percent – pointed to his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

So, who would citizens support?

A whopping 60 percent of those surveyed suggested that they would support an independent third-party candidate should Biden and Trump both find themselves on the ballot.
