According to a new poll released on Wednesday, half of those who support President Biden in the 2024 Democratic presidential primary are also open to voting for another candidate.
In the new Quinnipiac University national poll, 51 percent of respondents planning to vote for Biden in a hypothetical 2024 presidential primary said they might alter their candidate choice, depending on what happens before the Democratic primary.
Another 46% of these voters said they will not alter their minds regardless of what transpires before the primary.
Trump’s supporters demonstrated greater loyalty to their preferred candidate than did Biden’s.
68 percent of voters who intend to support Trump in the Republican primary are committed to the former president regardless of what transpires before the primary.
29 percent of respondents indicated they may alter their candidate preference based on future events.
Despite the fact that Biden’s support appears less solid than Trump’s, the president remains the overwhelming favorite to win the Democratic nomination.
In the most recent survey, 73 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters supported Biden. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. received 11% of the vote, while Marianne Williamson garnered 8%.
Trump maintained a commanding 62 percent support among Republican primary voters.
However, the former president confronts a more crowded primary field than Biden, and he must also stand trial on a number of charges in the year preceding the election, which may present unique obstacles for his campaign.
