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.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish

Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.

According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).

Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.

The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.

The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
