Biden Won’t Like This Poll

( – Further showcasing that his base is desperate to leave him behind, a poll revealed that nearly half of the Democratic electorate is eyeing someone other than Joe Biden to lead their ticket in the 2024 race.

The Rasmussen Reports survey shows that Michelle Obama is a top favorite for the Democratic nomination and indicates that 48% of Democratic respondents are in favor of scouting for a new candidate to take Biden’s place come November against 38% who are against the idea.

However, only a third of these voters actually think the party will go for a ballot revamp.

Should he opt out of the race, the quest for Biden’s potential replacement reveals a fragmented preference among Democratic voters. Michelle Obama tops the list with 20% backing above other options like Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom and Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Harris trails behind Obama with 15% of Democratic support for leading the ticket, while 12% advocate for Clinton and hope for a 2016 rematch. In turn, Gavin Newsom, who is rumored to be quietly eyeing the presidency, secured 11% favorability and Gretchen Whitmer was preferred by 9%.

However, the poll highlights that a notable 27% of Democrats leaned towards the ‘none of the above’ option while about 6% of those surveyed remained uncertain on their choice.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz speculated in September that Michelle Obama could dramatically enter the fray at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago and potentially take Biden’s spot as the nominee. Despite his theories, Obama has consistently distanced herself from political ambitions.

As the oldest president in U.S. history, 81-year-old Biden is not showing signs of bowing out anytime soon and faces competition from former President Donald Trump, the leading GOP candidate dominating key swing state polls.

If Biden manages to secure a second term, he would be 86 by its conclusion amid concerns over his cognitive health highlighted in Special Counsel Robert Hur’s damaging report on the classified documents scandal.
