Polling shows many Americans are not excited about a potential rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, with more respondents saying they’re experiencing “exhaustion” at the thought than anything else.
According to a Yahoo News/YouGov poll, 38 percent of respondents said they felt “exhaustion” by the idea of a rematch.
Other emotions that the rematch evokes are not more positive; 29 percent said they felt “fear,” and 23 percent felt “sadness and fear.”
Far fewer people were positive about the prospect of a rematch, with 23 percent expressing they felt “hope,” 8 percent saying they felt “pride,” and 7 percent expressing “gratitude.”
The survey shows a lack of enthusiasm for a rematch between Biden and Trump, which despite declining support, appears to be one of the most likely outcomes of the 2024 primary.
Trump has a strong lead over his possible competitor Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who holds a 14-point lead over the Florida Governor, according to a new poll.
DeSantis is expected to declare a run for the White House.
For Biden, the survey showed the precarious situation of the Democratic Party ahead of the 2024 Presidential election.
Only 27 percent of all respondents believe Biden should run again, and only 43 percent of Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents say he should be the Democratic Party’s nominee.
But the poll also found that Biden leads both Trump (46 percent to Trump’s 42 percent) and DeSantis (45 percent to DeSantis’ 41 percent) among registered voters.
The poll surveyed 1,530 adults between April 14 and April 17.
