A poll conducted on November 17 by Redfield & Wilton Strategies revealed that only 51% of Democratic voters were in favor of US President Joe Biden running for reelection in 2024.
The poll, the results of which were published by Newsweek, also found that 37% of the voters opposed him running again, while 12% said they did not know.
