There is great annoyance in the world of American politics, this is nothing new. In fact, it could very well be argued that this is a feature of the system at work, as a healthy debate is the only true fuel for a democracy such as ours.
But annoyed voters will often overlook the necessity of their plight on account of the exorbitant lifestyles of these “public servants”, and We The People can be a fickle bunch to boot.
That is perhaps why a new poll is showing just how willing Americans are to vote third party in 2024.
Fifty-eight percent of voters said they were open to supporting a moderate, independent presidential candidate in a contest between President Biden and former President Trump, according to a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill on Monday.
Additionally, the survey found that majorities of voters said they do not want Biden or Trump to run in 2024.
There was more:
Sixty-three percent of respondents said they did not want Biden to run for a second term, while only 37 percent said they did want him to run again in 2024. Meanwhile, 55 percent of respondents said they did not want Trump to run again in 2024. Forty-five percent said they thought the former president should run again.
President Biden faced numerous calls to not run in 2024 this week, many from high-level Democratic strategists.
The White House responded to these calls by issuing a tweet that retired the President’s plans to campaign for reelection.
