A new poll asking registered voters their preference for the 2024 Democratic Party presidential nomination found only 22% favored President Biden.
In the I&I/TIPP poll, 12% named Vice President Kamala Harris and the rest were in single digits.
Meanwhile, the RealClearPolitics average of major polls shows Biden’s approval rating at 42.3% and his disapproval at 52.2%. By comparison, Biden’s unfavorability rating in March was about 36%.
A recent survey by the Trafalgar Group, which was among the most accurate in 2020, found just 36% of voters back Biden while 59% disapprove.
In the I&I/TIPP poll on Democratic presidential candidates, only 8% of independents and other non-major party voters want Biden to be the Democratic nominee. And 10% want Harris instead. The crucial independent swing voter comprises a third or more of voters.
Among Democrats, just 37% favor Biden and 16% want Harris to be the party’s presidential standard-bearer.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg drew 4%, while Rep. Andrea Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Rep. Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts and Georgia 2018 gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams each garnered 3%.
New Jersey Sen. Corey Booker, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet each got 2%. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker drew under 1%.
The poll of 1,013 registered voters was conducted online from Dec. 1-4 by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, I&I’s polling partner.
Politico reported Monday that most Democrats are worried that Biden’s low approval rating “will lead to a thrashing at the ballot box.”
Biden has face several “setbacks” since the summer, Politico said, including the disastrous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, which “undermined the administration’s central argument of competence.” Then there was the “stinging loss in Virginia’s gubernatorial race,” and “the politics of managing the pandemic remain supremely tricky for the party in power.”
