Despite the various signals that US President Joe Biden has given regarding his possible run for re-election in 2024, the public seems to be clear on his intentions.
A survey conducted by Newsweek revealed that almost 60% of the country's eligible voters think that Biden shouldn't run for re-election. Only 30% of the respondents said that he should run for another term.
The survey results showed that Biden's age was the most cited reason why people don't want him to run for re-election. Other factors such as the midterm election and the possible entry of other Democrats into the race also contributed to the low number of people who think he should stay in office.
At 80 years old, Biden is the oldest president in history. He was sworn in two years ago, making him the oldest leader in history to hold the office. If he were to run for re-election in 2025, he would be 82 years old on Inauguration Day.
Despite the low number of people who think he should stay in office, Biden has still indicated that he intends to run for re-election in 2024.
Although no official candidates have declared for the presidential election in 2024, former President Donald Trump has already decided to run for the Republican nomination. According to recent polls, Trump trails the other potential candidates who have not yet announced their intentions to run for office.
