As per a poll issued on Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, 54% of people believe Biden will not seek re-election in 2024.
Only One-Third of Those Polled Think He Will Run
A third of those polled indicated they think Biden will run for reelection in 2024, with the remaining 13% say they don’t know. There had been a party split, with three-quarters of conservatives and some independent voters thinking the president would not run for re-election in 2024.
Liberals were split on the issue, with 41% saying Biden will run for re-election and 45% disagreeing. There has been a lot of conjecture about whether the now-78-year-old Biden will run for a second election since he announced his 2020 White House quest almost two years ago.
Last November, Biden made history by becoming the oldest man ever elected as president.

When asked about his intentions for 2024 during his first formal media briefing as president in March, Biden answered that his response is yes and that he very much hopes and intends to seek a second term.
Biden will be 82 at his second inauguration and 86 at the conclusion of his second term if he runs for president in 2024 and succeeds. Trump, who has been out of office for six months, has hinted that he would run for president again in 2024.
Americans believe Trump will run for president in 2024 by a 49 percent to 39 percent margin, with 12 percent saying they have no opinion.

How is the 2024 Election Going to Shape Up?
The next presidential election is still a long way off. It doesn’t start until after the 2022 midterms, which are still over a year away.

However, with Biden and Trump trading barbs while attending campaign-style weekend events, people got a taste of what may be a replay in the presidential race in 2024.
Trump decisively defeated his opponents in New Hampshire’s presidential primary in 2016, propelling him to the Republican primary and ultimately the White House.
According to a recent Granite State survey conducted by the University of New Hampshire, if the 2024 federal election were placed right now, the former president would once again demolish his GOP opponents in the Granite State.
In a study taken on July 15-19 and published on Wednesday, Trump received 47 percent of prospective New Hampshire Republican supporters’ backing in a theoretical primary contest; Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in as a good second at 19 percent.
Retired South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, who functioned as the United States ambassador to the United Nations under Trump’s presidency, received 6% of the vote; former Vice President Mike Pence received 5%.
In the survey, everyone else scored at or below 2%.
