There has long been speculation that Joe Biden, the oldest president ever elected, will only serve one term in the Oval Office and not run in 2024.
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports published Wednesday found that 37% of likely voters surveyed think it is more likely that Biden will be reelected in the next presidential election. Though this is a small but sizable number, it was the No. 1 choice among three possible answers. While majority of Democrats polled, 62%, believe reelection is more likely, only 15% of Republicans and 29% of “others” agreed.
On the other hand, the study from Rasmussen found that voters were more unified when it came to 2024 outcomes that don’t see Biden getting a second term.
Rasmussen reported that 30% of likely voters believe it is more likely that Biden will resign before serving his full term in office, with 43% of Republicans and 36% of “others” thinking this. Only 15% of Democrats, though, gave this answer.
And lastly, the survey found that 23% of likely voters think it is more likely that Biden will lose to whoever is the GOP presidential nominee in 2024, with former President Donald Trump the current overwhelming favorite to win the GOP primaries if he runs, something at which he has hinted publicly. 37% of Republicans, according to the poll, gave this answer, alongside 13% of Democrats and 19% of “others.”
10% of respondent, it should be noted, said they were not sure.
The survey also asked likely voters, “Who’s setting the agenda in Washington, D.C., these days,” and only 39% said Biden. 45%, on the other hand, said during the previous administration that then-President Trump was.
“When Donald Trump was president, there wasn’t much doubt who was running the show in Washington. Now that Joe Biden is in the White House, however, attitudes have changed,” Rasmussen’s analysis argued.
Coming in second and third places were the national media and Congress at 23% and 15% respectively.
Moreover, in its analysis, the conservative outlet linked the results of this question to another recent survey in which 54% said the president is a “puppet of the radical left.”
Rasmussen’s survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted between February 28 and March 1 and has a reported +/- 3-point margin of error and 95% level of confidence.

New York City Dems Push Law to Allow 800,000 Non-Citizens to Vote in Municipal Elections
The New York City Council will vote on December 9 on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections
New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.
“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.
“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.
Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.
Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.
Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”
The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
