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.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances
The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.
The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.
“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.
The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.
Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
