The majority of Americans don’t want either Joe Biden or Donald Trump to run for President in 2024, according to a staggering new poll.
The poll was carried out by Yahoo! News in conjunction with market research and data analytics firm YouGov.
Surveying 1,541 people between June 10 and June 13, an astounding 64 per cent of Americans answered ‘No’ when questioned whether Biden should run for President again in 2024.
A mere 21 per cent believed the current US President should have another term, while 15 per cent said they were unsure.
While Trump may certainly look to skew this as a win for his own Presidential campaign, should he be allowed to run, unfortunately for him his numbers weren’t much better.
Fifty-five per cent of those polled believed the 76-year-old should stay out of the election campaign in 2024, with 31 per cent saying he should run and 14 per cent unsure.
In perhaps the most shocking revelation from the results, two-fifths of those who voted for Biden in 2020 said they wouldn’t be voting for him again.
Trump’s hold over the Republican party voters was evidently still strong with a 58 per cent majority saying they would want Trump to run again, with just one-quarter of those surveyed against a re-run.
Unfortunately for the current President, if the election was to be carried out at this moment, he would narrowly fall to Trump with 39 per cent of voters compared to Trump’s 42 per cent.
The poll was taken in the midst of the United States facing its highest inflation level in over 40 years, as many Americans struggle to keep up with the cost of living.
Trump has also been facing some scrutiny since the start of the January 6 Capitol Insurrection hearings, which he has called a ‘one-sided witch hunt’, according to The Guardian.
The hearings have been publicly televised and have focused on Trump and his role in the riot - making the case that the attack was an attempted coup on the government.
Allegations have been made that Trump bullied Vice-President Mike Pence to overturn the result of the 2020 election, which he has denied.
While speaking to a religious gathering in Nashville, Tennessee, he took aim at the committee hearings that were investigating him.
He said: “There’s no clearer example of the menacing spirit that has devoured the American left than the disgraceful performance being staged by the ‘unselect’ committee.
“They’re con people. They’re con artists. Every one of them is a radical left hater, hates all of you, hates me even more than you, but I’m just trying to help you out.”
