Only 39% want Kamala Harris to be Joe Biden’s running mate in 2024
Only 39% of likely voters in the United States want Vice President Kamala Harris to remain President Joe Biden’s running mate in 2024, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll.
The poll released Friday found only 39% want to see Harris run as Biden’s running mate if he runs in 2024. By comparison, 48% of respondents said they don’t want to see Harris run as the running mate. Thirteen percent said they weren’t sure.
Split by party, 68% of Republican respondents said they wouldn’t want Harris to run for vice president on the 2024 ticket, while 63% of Democratic respondents said Harris should be the running mate.
However, with the Independents, 32% said she would be the running mate, while a majority (51%) think she shouldn’t be. Only seventeen percent were unsure.
Additionally, the poll found that only 43% of respondents also had a favorable impression, including 19% who said they had a “very favorable” opinion. In comparison, 55% viewed the vice president unfavorably.
Last month, shortly after Biden reached halfway through his term as first-term president, a report said several Democrats had also expressed doubts about Harris running on the 2024 Democratic ticket, as many worry about how old Biden is and if she would be. capable of taking over — since he would be 86 at the end of a second term.
“All I fought for was for someone like her to be president… But I don’t know if the people who have to make that happen feel that way right now. I don’t know if she has what it takes to overcome the obstacle of our current environment. https://t.co/Qc3d9vrOa9

A South Carolina Democratic strategist told the Washington Post, “Every fiber in my body wants her to be president; all i fought for was for someone like her to be president.
“I think she’s a good person with a good heart who can lead the country. But I don’t know if the people who have to make this happen are feeling that right now. I don’t know if she has what it takes to overcome obstacles in our current environment,” the Democratic strategist added.
It also comes as Biden has yet to formally announce whether he will run for a second term in 2024. However, he recently teased reporters about running while vacationing in the Virgin Islands with family members. It was reported that he was preparing a team for 2024.
The Rasmussen Reports poll was conducted from January 31 to February 2 with 900 respondents. The poll had a 3% margin of error and a 95% confidence level.
