According to a recent national survey, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independent voters are reportedly increasingly supportive of President Biden as their party’s nominee in 2024.

Half of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents polled in an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey issued Wednesday say their party has a greater chance of capturing the White House in 2024 with Biden as the contender.

45 percent believed another candidate would increase their chances of winning.

It represents a significant reversal in public opinion in the Marist survey, since the president was polling poorly on the topic in November.

Biden, 80, has stated his intention to run for re-election to a second term in the White House but has yet to establish a presidential re-election campaign.

Nevertheless, a majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents polled indicated the GOP has a greater chance of recapturing the White House in 2024 if someone other than former President Donald Trump serves as the party’s standard-bearer.

Similarly to last November, 54% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents believe the GOP has a greater chance of winning in 2024 without Trump.

Just 42% believe Trump will give Republicans an edge in the general election in 2024.

The survey also shows that Trump’s favorability rating among Republicans has declined from 79% in November to 68% in February.

The numbers represent his lowest score in Marist polling since before he won the 2016 presidential election.

The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey was conducted from February 13 to February 16.
