A plurality of American voters seem to have turned on the idea of President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump seeking second terms in 2024.

According to a Yahoo News-YouGov poll, 37 percent of registered voters in both parties said they believed a Trump presidency would be the “worst thing” for the country, and 35 percent shared the same sentiment toward Biden.

Voters could decide from five options: unsure, the best thing that could happen, mostly good, a mix of good and bad, and mostly bad.

In most instances, voters chose the negative extreme.

When it came to Biden, 43 percent of Democrats and 84 percent of Republicans are against a 2024 Presidential bid.

When it came to Trump, 85 percent of Democrats and 25 percent of Republicans were against a Trump 2024 bid.

Three-quarters of Democrats believed Trump becoming President in 2024 would be “the worst thing” and the same percentage of Republicans shared the same sentiment about President Joe Biden.

The poll also asked voters who they would support if the 2020 match-up happened today. Forty-one percent of respondents said they would support Biden’s bid, while 39 percent said they would support Trump.

But in a fictitious scenario where Biden stepped aside and Vice President Kamala Harris took over, only 30 percent of Democratic voters and independent voters who lean Democratic would support Harris. Fifty-two percent of voters said they would support another Democratic nominee.

Forty-four percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters still prefer Trump as their Presidential nominee, but Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) is quickly gaining ground, with 33 percent of Republican voters saying they’d support him.
