Democrats Get Bad News About Biden's Future
President Joe Biden officially announced this week that he will be running for a second presidential term in 2024.
But a recent Rasmussen Reports survey reveals that the announcement might be a very bad idea for the Democrats.
Only one-third of Democrats say it is somewhat likely they will vote for a third-party candidate in 2024, according to the survey.
"When asked how likely it is that they will vote for a third-party candidate in 2024, 59 percent, overall, said it is at least not very likely," reported Breitbart.
"However, 35 percent of Democrats indicated it is likely, and of those, 15 percent said it is 'very likely' that they will vote for a third-party candidate in the next presidential election," according to Breitbart. "Twenty-nine percent of Republicans also indicated that it is likely they would vote for a third-party candidate, but of those, only 11 percent said it is 'very likely.' Thirty percent of independents also said it is likely they will support a third-party candidate as well."
Thirty-one percent believe a third-party presidential bid would hurt the Republican candidate.
Twenty-five percent believe a third-party presidential bid would hurt the Democrat candidate.
Twenty-four percent believe it would make no difference, and 19 percent remain unsure.
According to Rasmussen Reports:
President Joe Biden’s strongest supporters are most likely to believe a third-party presidential challenger in 2024 would hurt Democrats. Among voters who Strongly Approve of Biden’s job performance as president, 41% think a third-party presidential candidate would take more votes away from the Democratic candidate. By contrast, among those who Strongly Disapprove of Biden’s performance, only 10% say a third-party challenger in 2024 would hurt Democrats more, while 38% think a third-party presidential candidate in 2024 would take more voters away from the Republican.
