Up to 64 percent of Democratic voters say they want a different candidate than Joe Biden (79) in the upcoming presidential election, according to a Siena poll for The New York Times.
And only 26% think the party should nominate him in 2024.
The number gets worse for Biden if you only ask people under the age of 30. Of the party’s voters, as many as 94 percent of this group want another candidate.
Biden, already the oldest US president ever, has stated several times that he will run for re-election in 2024.
– I can say it frankly: I want young forces. I am tired of all the old people who are going to rule our country. “I don’t want a president knocking on death’s door,” teacher Nicole Farrer, 38, told the New York Times.
There are many indications that Joe Biden needs some major political victories before that time, if he is to get his second term as president.
According to polls, only 13 percent of American voters believe the country is on the right track.
This is the lowest number since the financial crisis more than a decade ago.
Only 33 percent of voters think Biden is doing a good job as president. Support is, of course, greater if you ask only Democratic voters. 70 percent of this group are satisfied.
