Rasmussen Poll: Majority of Dems Want Biden Replaced

By    |   Tuesday, 28 May 2024 11:51 AM EDT

A majority of Democrats say they approve of replacing President Joe Biden as the Democratic Party candidate ahead of November's election, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released Tuesday.

While 49% of likely voters overall said they would approve of Democrats dumping Biden, 54% of Democratic voters said they want Biden out, with 25% saying they "strongly approve" of the move, according to the results. Notably, Republicans surveyed are bringing down the average; just 45% of GOP voters surveyed want Biden replaced. Meanwhile, 50% of "other" voters, what Rasmussen labels unaffiliated, said they want to see Biden replaced.

The number of Democrats in favor of replacing Biden has jumped 6 points since the last survey in February, according to Rasmussen.

Young voters are the biggest age group that want Biden dumped, with 69% aged 18-39 saying they want Biden replaced.

However, just 44% of likely voters overall think it will actually happen, including 38% of Democrats. Again, notably, 52% of Republicans surveyed say it's somewhat or very likely that Democrats will pull the plug on Biden, according to the survey.

As for an alternate Democrat who would make a better candidate than Biden, "none of them" (48%) leads the field of Vice President Kamala Harris (10%), Hillary Clinton (9%), former First Lady Michelle Obama (14%), California Gov. Gavin Newsom (7%) and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (6%) overall.

Among Democrats, Obama is the leader among humans, at 21%, while 31% said "none of them," according to the poll. Meanwhile, 52% of unaffiliated voters said none of the other Democrats are better than Biden.

Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,113 U.S. likely voters from May 20-22. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
