A new CNN poll finds that a majority of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters would prefer that the DNC nominate a different candidate other than President Joe Biden in 2024.

The CNN poll of 1,527 voters conducted by SSRS Research reveals that 51% of registered Democrats and Democrat-leaning voters would prefer a different candidate other than Biden in the 2024 election, versus 45% who want to renominate President Biden. There were 5% who were undecided. Biden’s 45% support lags far behind a March 2010 poll that showed 79% of Democratic voters supported then-President Barack Obama.

As for the reasons not to support Biden, 35% believed that Biden couldn’t win against Republicans, 31% said they don’t want the president to be reelected, and 19% noted that the president’s age worries them. Biden is currently 79-years-old and would be 81 once he takes office in 2024.

When Democrats were asked if there was a “specific person you’d like to see the Democratic Party nominate for president in 2024,” a whopping 72% declared they “just someone besides Joe Biden.”

However, the potential 2024 Democratic presidential nominees didn’t inspire the passion of voters. The top candidate – with only 5% backing – was Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The rest of the uninspiring candidates include former First Lady Michelle Obama (4%), Pete Buttigieg (2%), Vice President Kamala Harris (2%), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) (1%), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) (1%), and talk show host Oprah Winfrey (1%).

Looking at the 2024 election from the Republican side, the polls found that former President Donald Trump is the top pick, but by a slim margin. According to the survey of Republicans and Republican-leaning independent voters between Jan. 10 and Feb. 6, 50% want Trump to be the GOP nominee in 2024, while 49% would prefer another candidate. This is a major drop from Trump’s polling numbers in March 2018 when 77% of Republican voters wanted him to be nominated again in 2020.

As for their reasoning, there are 39% who simply don’t want Trump to be president again, and 22% who don’t believe the former president could beat the Democratic candidate in 2024.

There are 60% who want “just someone other than Trump.” Of potential GOP presidential candidates in 2024, there appears to be only one threat to Trump – Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The Republican governor of Florida garnered 21% of the vote, while the third-place contenders languished far behind. The next candidates grabbed a mere 1% of the interest from Republican voters, including Donald Trump Jr., Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R).

Nearly a year ago, the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll showed that 68% of CPAC attendees said Trump should run for president in 2024, and the runner-up was DeSantis at 21%, followed by Noem at 4%, and Haley at 3%.
