President Biden’s 2020 voters are skeptical of another four years as he reportedly prepares his big announcement, according to a new poll.
A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll surveyed an equal amount of voters who backed Biden and former President Trump last cycle to find out if and how support has shifted for the two political figures since their heated 2020 matchup.
The poll found that about 40% of individuals who voted for Biden in the 2020 presidential election do not think he should seek re-election next cycle. About 35% of respondents said they would vote for a third-party candidate over Biden in 2024, even if it meant Trump was more likely to win the election.
With Biden being 82 years old at the time of the next election, 42% said his age makes them less likely to vote for him, while 55% said it will not impact their decision.

In a matchup against his announced Democratic competitors, 67% of Biden 2020 voters said they would support the president again next cycle. Robert F. Kennedy received 14% of the vote, while Marianne Williamson was the choice candidate to only 5% of respondents.
Despite some hesitancy among voters to throw support behind the president, Biden is expected to announce his 2024 campaign Tuesday via a pre-recorded video.
