While nearly half of voters believe Biden will be replaced on the ticket, more Republicans at 66 percent believe it is at least somewhat likely Democrats will replace Biden with another candidate. Only 33 percent of Democrats and 43 percent of unaffiliated voters said the same.

However, there is little consensus among Democratic voters over who would be a better option to replace him should Biden decide to step aside.

One in 5 or 20 p.c of Democrats within the survey named former First Lady Michelle Obama as the favourite alternative to switch Biden.

That was adopted by 15 p.c who most popular Vice President Kamala Harris.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got here in third at 12 p.c, adopted by the 11 p.c who most popular California Governor Gavin Newsom, and the 9 p.c who wished Gretchen Whitmer on the prime of the ticket.

But while Obama has been a formidable campaigner for fellow Democrats and active in get out the vote efforts, she has previously denied any interest in seeking office herself.

Meanwhile, Harris has said she is ‘ready to serve’ should the need arise but has blasted the criticism of Biden, calling the special counsel report politically motivated.

Newsom, who has sparked speculation about his own presidential aspirations, has also been a fierce advocate for Biden, rejecting concerns about his mental acuity and touting Biden’s accomplishments on the campaign trail.

Clinton has said Biden’s age at 81-years-old is a legitimate concern, but she has also been actively helping with the fundraising effort for his reelection bid.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has also been an active surrogate for the Biden campaign and fundraising efforts.

In an interview over the weekend with CNN, Whitmer called on voters in her state to cast an ‘affirmative vote for President Biden’ amid a push by progressives in Michigan for Democrats to vote ‘uncommitted’ in the primary on Tuesday.

Biden launched his reelection bid last year. He has dismissed concerns over his ability to serve a second term and blasted the Hur report saying his memory is fine.

Despite the hypothesis over whether or not Biden will keep within the race, it has been 140 years since a political occasion has denied a sitting president the nomination for a second time period who has wished it and that was beneath very totally different circumstances.
